This class is designed to shed some light on how Revit software can turn your 2D workflow into a 3D workflow that is 5 to 8 times more efficient. The class will focus on setting yourself up to be faster, smarter, and more organized when using Revit software as your primary drafting tool. The main focuses of the demonstration will be on how to set up your template, families, keynotes, and typical details in order to gain the most optimal timesavings. At the end of the presentation the group will have a breakdown of the labor savings gained when using a Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution such as Revit software.
- Make a finite decision as to whether or not it is beneficial to use Revit
- Gain a basic understanding of Revit software and its merits
- Learn how to identify how to increase efficiency with your current Revit workflow
- Learn how complex components can speed up your drafting experience
