Revit® Structure 2012 - Intermediate To Advanced

Video Description

In this video based training course for Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2012, author Jay Polding takes you beyond the basics, into advanced tricks and techniques for using the tools available to you in this BIM (Building Information Modeling) software for structural engineering. To get the most out of this video tutorial, you should already have a good working knowledge of Revit Structure 2012. In this computer based course, you will cover topics such as annotation standards, phasing, working with walls, floors, columns, beams and trusses. You will also cover structural standards, such as brace, beam connection and column symbols, learn about shared paramaters and even how to render and present your models. Finally you will learn how to work share with worksets, and discover tips for collaborating with other consultants. By the conclusion of this advanced training course on Autodesk Revit Structure 2012, you will have a deep understanding of advanced techniques, and how to use the tools that are available in this software, to create and share your structural models. Extensive working files are included to allow you to work alongside the author as he explains the techniques he is teaching in this video tutorial.
