Description

Description

At this point, most Revit software users can confidently rely on using Revit software throughout every stage of a new construction project. But when the topic of using Revit software for renovation work comes up, most people cringe. Many firms use a hybrid approach with AutoCAD software and Revit software to crank out their renovation projects. Why not just do all the work in Revit software? After all, for most firms, renovation projects account for the majority of the workload. In this class, you’ll learn how to quickly add existing conditions for demolition drawings, and you’ll understand why this will help you expedite the new design work. We will also explore situations where existing conditions do not have to be completely modeled, as well as how to get your drawings to look the way you want them to look. By performing all of the work in Revit software, you will collaborate better with your colleagues and maintain your company standards, while improving productivity. This session features Revit, Revit Architecture, and Revit MEP. AIA Approved
