Getting Started with Revit or Revit LT Hands-on Course

by Paul F. Aubin, at Paul F. Aubin Consulting Services on May 29, 2019

Revit is a design and documentation platform that supports the design, drawings, and schedules required for building information modeling (BIM). BIM delivers information about project design, scope, quantities, and phases when you need it. In the Revit model, every drawing sheet, 2D and 3D view, and schedule is a presentation of information from the same virtual building model. As you work on the building model, Revit collects information about the building project and coordinates this information across all other representations of the project. The Revit parametric change engine automatically coordinates changes made anywhere—in model views, drawing sheets, schedules, sections, and plans.
