Creating Intelligent Revit Templates for Structural

Revit is the BIM design tool of choice for the modern world, and its use is growing daily. Unfortunately, too many of us are stuck using out-of-the-box block, styles, families, and construction document output because we don’t know how to effectively set up and navigate the complexities of the Revit template and CAD Standards structures. Are you the CAD manager for a structural design firm or group? Does your firm spend too much time trying to get your Revit output consistent with your company display standards, or copying components from project to project? ZenTek Consultants will help you build the practical structural template controls you need to automate and simplify all your projects.

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 2020. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version. Students should have a solid understanding of Revit or have taken the Revit for Beginners or Revit Exploring the Essentials course. Must attend all four sessions.
