Revit Architecture 2015: Site and Structural Design
The main purpose of the AutodeskÂ® RevitÂ® Architecture software is to design buildings: walls, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs. However, architects also frequently need to add site and structural information. This course covers the elements and tools in the Autodesk Revit Architecture software that are used to create topographic surfaces for site work and to add structural elements.
For Site, students learn how to:
Create topographic surfaces with various methods
Add property lines and building pads to the topography
Modify toposurfaces with subregions, splitting surfaces and grading the regions
Annotate site plans and add site components to develop the model
Work with Shared Coordinates to facilitate model collaboration For Structural, students learn how to:
Create structural grids and add columns to the model
Add foundation walls and footings of various types
Add beams and beam systems to develop the framing
Create framing elevations and add vertical bracing elements
Copy and monitor elements across disciplines via linked Revit models
Check Interferences to resolve design issues by utilizing the interference command
Students who enroll in this course should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk Revit Architecture software as taught in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals course and have knowledge of basic techniques.
AIA Credits: This course has been approved with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for 8 CES Learning Unit Hours.
