Revit MEP Fundamentals Course Outline

This course has been designed with new users in mind as the perfect starting point for those completely new to Revit or those transitioning over from traditional 2D CAD processes into full 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM) workflows. Its focus is on MEP Building Services practitioners and the workflows required to produce everything from concept design through to fully realised construction documentation sets using the Autodesk Revit platform. The course adheres to industry recognised, best practice protocols and follows a logical order of setting up a typical MEP Revit model from linking in and coordinating with a base architectural model, to adding in specific discipline designs through to detailing, documentation, scheduling, and then outputting via print or digital export.
