Advanced 3D Modeling for Architectural Design

Explore the possibilities of creating 3D architectural models in Revit. Apply these new skills to your work and take your career to the next level.
Software used in this course:
  • Revit

Overview

Revit offers many tools for creating production-level BIM models with speed and efficiency. Dive into these essential features using an industry-standard workflow for modeling. You’ll create and work with architectural elements, such as walls, floors and ceilings, roofs, stairs, and railings. Round out your skills with lessons on topography, mass families, rooms, areas, and materials.

After completing this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Create wall types, embed walls, and create sweeps and reveals.
  • Create and adjust curtain walls, work with curtain wall panels, and place doors in curtain walls.
  • Create ceilings, place lights, and create floor upstands.
  • Use shape-editing features and assign thickness to floors.
  • Model advanced roofs, such as glazed and mansard, place fasciae and gutters, and create dormer windows.
  • Edit railing paths and create multi-story stairs and u-shaped staircases.
  • Create a toposurface from a linked CAD file.
  • Create a building pad in a toposurface and add site components.
  • Create mass families, edit masses, and develop the model using model by face tools.
  • Develop an area scheme, area plans, and area boundaries.
  • Work with room bounding objects, room data, schedules, and color schemes.
  • Create and assign materials to objects.
