Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk(R) Revit(R) for Architecture, MEP, and Structure is a powerful BIM program that supports the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building's life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom family elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently. The objective of the Autodesk(R) Revit(R) 2017 (R1) BIM Management: Template and Family Creation student guide is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom system, in-place, and component families. This student guide contains practices that are specific to each discipline. Topics Covered Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types. Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formula. Create custom wall, roof, and floor types as well as MEP system families. Set up a component family file with a parametric framework. Create family geometry. Create family types. Modify the visibility of components and incorporate additional family items such as controls, MEP connectors, and nested components. Create specific families, including in-place families, profiles, annotations, and parameters. The student guide also contains discipline-specific practices for families, including: doors, windows, railings, pipe fittings, light fixtures, gusset plates, and built-up columns. Prerequisites Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk Revit software, as found in the Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1) Architecture Fundamentals, Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1) Structure Fundamentals, or Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1) MEP Fundamentals student guides. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc. Information on Collaboration Tools, Conceptual Design, and Site and Structural Design are covered in additional student guides.

The Autodesk(r) Revit(r) software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This student guide 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 the "Autodesk(r) Revit(r) 2017 (R1) Architecture Fundamentals" student guide is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This student guide focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need. Topics Covered Understanding the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software. Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface. Working with the basic drawing and editing tools. Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model. Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors.

The AutoCAD(R)/AutoCAD LT(R) 2018: Fundamentals student guide is designed for those using AutoCAD(R) or AutoCAD LT(R) 2018 with a Windows operating system. This student guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. The objective of AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2018: Fundamentals is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Part 1 (chapters 1 to 20) covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are introduced throughout the student guide. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as: Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface. Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Organizing drawing objects on layers. Inserting reusable symbols (blocks). Preparing a layout to be plotted. Adding text, hatching, and dimensions. Part 2 (chapters 21 to 32) continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template. You learn skills such as: Using more advanced editing and construction techniques. Adding parametric constraints to objects. Creating local and global blocks. Setting up layers, styles, and templates. Using advanced plotting and publishing options. This student guide refers to both the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT software as the AutoCAD software. All topics, including features and commands, relate to both the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT software unless specifically noted otherwise. Prerequisites A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology. A working knowledge of your operating system.
