Autodesk Revit Structure Fundamentals

This course aims to teach the concepts and principles of building design through documentation of construction using Autodesk® Revit® (R1) Structure software. This course is intending to introduce the user interface and components of basic building of the software which makes it powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The training will familiarize you with the tools required for creation, modification, analyzation, and documentation of the parametric model.
