What is AutoCAD?
AutoCAD is powerful and comprehensive 3D solid modelling software.
AutoCAD is one of the most widely applied commercial software application for 2D and 3D
computer-aided design and drafting. Professionals in different industries such as:
architects, project managers, engineers, graphic designers, etc. use AutoCAD to facilitate their daily duties.
Students, educators, and educational institutions have free* access to our design software, creativity apps,
and learning resources.
Course Basic Information
Learn the basics of using Revit 2018 for architectural design.
This course is designed for students who have no prior Revit experience and want to work in imperial units (inches and feet).
It is a beginner’s course that approaches Revit from the ground up.
Fundamentals and good work habits are emphasized every step of the way.
First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels
and dimensions that will anchor your design.
Then author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into modeling:
- adding walls, doors, and windows
- using joins and constraints
- creating and mirroring groups
- linking to external assets and DWG files
- and modeling floors, roofs, and ceilings
Revit 2018 is a great program for structural engineering, offering cutting-edge tools for creating design
alternatives, building simulations, and publishing clear, easy-to-share documentation.
This training course focuses on the major components of Revit used for structural design and is designed for
the user who prefers to work in imperial units (inches and feet).
Starting with referencing an architectural model, you’ll learn how to add foundations, rebar, and framing;
set up views and drawings; model slabs and trusses; and build a whole lot more.
This course is designed for members with no Revit experience, or for more advanced users who want to jump
to a topic and start from there. Either way, this comprehensive course will teach you what you need to know
to be dangerous in Revit structure.
MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design is one of the major components of the BIM chain
—and Revit is the design tool of choice for many MEP engineers.
This course focuses on the MEP features of Revit 2018, the latest version of the software.
It’s designed for the novice user who prefers to work in metric units (meters, centimeters, etc.).
You can dive into a specific trade, or take the entire course to learn about all aspects of the vast Revit MEP ecosystem.
Upon completion, you’ll know how to create basic floor plans, design electric circuits and lighting systems
model air intake and exhaust systems, create plumbing plans, and design fire alarm and sprinkler systems
and document your designs for construction and fabrication.
