In April 2018, Ideate merged its Autodesk businesses with IMAGINiT Technologies, resulting in one company offering many solutions to their combined customers. As a result of that combination, Ideate classes have been reformatted to align with the corresponding IMAGINiT classes. This class, which was a three-day class with Ideate, is now a four-day class.

This training course is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it throughout the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you learn design development tools including how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. Finally, you learn the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase.

Since building projects are extremely complex, the Autodesk Revit software is also complex. The objective of this Autodesk Revit training course is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This training course focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need.
