Autodesk Revit Architecture Essentials



Autodesk Revit is a Building design and construction software for Architects, Interior Designers, Structural Engineers, MEP Engineers, and Quantity Surveyors.

Autodesk Revit software is built for Building Information Modelling (BIM), helping professionals design, build and maintain higher-quality buildings. Using the information-rich models created with Autodesk Revit software, professionals can collaborate to deliver better projects more efficiently.

This is a 4 days (32 hours) training course covering the Autodesk Revit software which is a powerful Building Information Modelling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process using a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. 

The objective of the Autodesk Revit Fundamentals for Architecture training is to enable you to create a full 3D architectural project model, including walls, doors, windows, components, floors, ceilings, roofs, and stairs, using the basic tools that most architectural users need. This includes how to navigate the user interface and use the basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. The final part of the course focuses on creating construction documents.

Understanding the purpose of BIM and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software.

  • Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface.

  • Working with the basic sketching and modifying tools.

  • Review Revit file work-sharing, terminology, and workflow.

  • Linking CAD and Revit files as the basis of a project.

  • Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model.

  • Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors.

  • Adding component features, such as furniture and equipment.

  • Adding floors, ceilings, and roofs to the building model.

  • Modelling stairs, railings, and ramps.

  • Setting up sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules.

  • Creating details.



  • Access to the 2021.0 or later version of the software, to ensure compatibility with this guide. Future software updates that are released by Autodesk may include changes that are not reflected in this guide.

  • An understanding of architectural terminology is an asset.
