Autodesk Revit - Exploring the Essentials

The design world has made the shift to BIM, and working in 3D systems like Revit is vital to every firm’s growth, and every designer’s career. The problem is, that many folks have been thrown into the Revit world with no more than a quick overview, and in many cases a “figure it out as you go” directive from above. Understanding the basic concepts, controls, and features of Revit is vital. Even those who’ve been working in Revit for a while often don’t know about, or fully understand, some of the basic concepts needed in order to be productive. From initial project setup, through basic views, annotations, and working with linked Models, this course is a must for every Revit user. This course will help you, and your firm, comfortably make the move from out-of-date 2D CAD work, to the world of 3D BIM in Revit, making you confident in your understanding and capabilities!


The concepts presented in this course provide a solid platform for students who want to attend all other ZenTek Revit courses.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.


Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk Revit 2021. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version. Must attend all four sessions.
