Course Objectives:

The Autodesk Revit Structure Advanced training introduces experienced users of the Autodesk Revit Structure software to more advanced techniques and concepts beyond what was learned in the Autodesk Revit Structure Fundamentals. It is intended to broaden your knowledge and maximize your use of the Autodesk Revit Structure software.


Course Description:

This training offers detailed information and practical exercises regarding creating families (tapered columns, precast slabs, tapered moment frame, and trusses), preparing the Autodesk Revit software analytical model for analysis and project sharing.

Topics include:

·  Concepts and Techniques for working with Families

·  Creating Structural Families

·  Creating Trusses

·  Working with Structural Settings

·  Setting Up Analytical Views.

·  Creating and Placing Loads for Structural Analysis

·  Project Team Collaboration working with Worksets



It is highly recommended that students have experience and knowledge in structural design and its terminology, completed Revit structure Essentials course.
