Learn how to use space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and also applying colors to them to show the connections. Learn how to create and render perspective views, walk throughs, and solar studies.

Upon completion of the Essentials training, participants receive an Autodesk Certificate of Completion, Technical Help Desk support and access to online modules for future reference.

Opening the Revit Productivity Box Training

a

When: Thursday, April 27th

Where: initial.aec office

DescriptionLike any other software, Revit has tools in it to save time and increase productivity which increases your ROI. My question to you, as a new or experienced user, is this: Are you truly taking advantage of everything that Revit can do at any given time? In this workshop, we will look at all kinds of tools and processes to relieve headaches and get things done in a more efficient manner.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Look at multiple tools and make sure that certain options are being taken advantage of to increase productivity.
  • Highlight the most efficient ways of working within Revit processes and learn to avoid the ways in which users can get bogged down; for, as in any process, there are always ways to work more expediently.
  • In Revit there are certain right-clicks and keyboard shortcuts that everyone should know. Most users will never stumble upon these pathways to efficiency; however, in this course, they will be revealed.
  • Provide a “one-stop-shop” document that helps you, or your staff, remember all the tips & tricks covered in the course.
