Description

Description

Are you considering a change? Is it time to make a move? Do you have the right attitude to use Revit Architecture software? Changes in staff and the way we set about doing our designs may need to be rethought. We’ll look at many of these issues and aim to ease your transition. If you already know how objects work in AutoCAD Architecture software and you know how a building is put together, then you’re more than halfway home. Revit software will help you continue on your Building Information Modeling (BIM) journey and help set you up for post-design use. Don’t merely create drawings with your CAD package. Create entire building designs!

Target Audience

Target Audience
