Description

Description

Revit building design software is an extremely capable modeler for different disciplines, but using it for modeling simpler items such as furniture, toys, dollhouses, decks, and more can be a very rewarding experience. This class demonstrates the use of Revit on a smaller scale to create drawings, quantity takeoffs, renders, and cut sheets for home projects. Real-world examples are shown from conception to fabrication. As the BIM director working for a firm with over 700 employees, there is always a challenging project underway that requires in-depth planning, technological innovation, and complex workflows. After this work is done, it is a pleasure to kick back and use Revit to model something fun! This class focuses on using Revit to create models for the weekend warrior who is not afraid to build, create, and fabricate items at home.
