As architects and designers start a project, they frequently think about the overall massing of a building or the area of the footprint. AutodeskÂ® RevitÂ® Architecture, using its powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) engine, includes tools for creating mass elements that can be modified into many shapes. You can then apply walls, roofs, and floors to them to continue designing. You can also access space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and applying colors to them to show the connections. For presentations, you can create and render perspective views. The objective of the Autodesk Revit Architecture 2016 Conceptual Design & Visualization course is to enable students who have worked with Autodesk Revit Architecture to expand their knowledge in the areas of Conceptual Design, including massing studies, space planning, visualization, and rendering.
Create In-Place Conceptual Mass elements and Conceptual Mass families
Create building elements from massing studies
Use Rooms and Areas for space planning and analysis
Create perspectives, walkthroughs, and solar studies
Communicate the concepts of rendering and lighting
Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of Autodesk Revit as taught in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals course. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating walls, roofs, and other objects, copying and moving objects, creating and working with views, etc.
AIA Credits: This course has been approved with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for 8 CES Learning Unit Hours.
