This four part training is intended to introduce students to the software’s user interface and the basic electrical components that make the Autodesk Revit software a powerful and flexible modeling tool. This program, which will be instructed by expert VDC managers, will also familiarize students with the tools required to create views and accurately document the parametric model. The classes are designed to take the students through the basics of modeling an electrical system from linking external models into Revit to exporting and coordinating these models in Navisworks.
