Revit Structure 2014

Video Description

In this Revit Structure 2014 training course by Shaun Bryant, you will learn the fundamentals of building information modeling for structural engineering, using this amazing software from Autodesk. This tutorial is designed for beginners - you will not need any prior experience with Revit or other BIM or CAD software to get the most from this training.
You start with a quick tour through the interface to learn where the tools and controls are that you will use in your projects. Once you are familiar with those tools and their locations, Shaun takes you right in to applying them to models. You will learn basic drawing and editing, how to set up levels, working with views, and how to add columns and walls to your model. Each lesson is short and covers one specific topic, allowing you to quickly absorb the information, apply it and move to the next. Other topics covered in this Revit Structure fundamentals training are; structural reinforcement, beams and framing, floors, shafts, annotating drawings, scheduling and detailing your models.
By the end of this computer based video training for Autodesk Revit Structure 2014, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the basic tools and operations in Structure. You will have experience in using these tools to create your own models, and a solid foundation for continuing to advanced Revit Structure training, or to strike out on your own. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
