Course modules

~10 min.
User interface
Module

The user interface provides all the tools you need to work on a drawing. Increase productivity and simplify your workflow by customizing the interface to support the way you work.

~10 min.
Modeling steel structures
Module

Create a model for a typical steel structure, and analyze and test designs on the model.

~15 min.
Loads for steel structures
Module

Define load types, assign loads to load types, define area and point loads, and create and modify load combinations.

~12 min.
Analysis and design for steel structures
Module

Run analysis for steel structures, review analysis results, and perform design. This helps you determine and validate element sizes for code compliance.

~15 min.
Modeling concrete structures
Module

Create a model for a typical concrete building, and analyze and test designs on the model.

~13 min.
Loads for concrete structures
Module

Define load types and apply loads to structural objects.

~15 min.
Analysis and design for concrete structures
Module

Run analysis for concrete buildings, review analysis results, and model designs to determine the required reinforcement. 

~15 min.
Code design for concrete
Module

Use analysis results to calculate reinforcement requirements dictated by country codes. 

~15 min.
Reports and documentation
Module

Create documentation and reports based on the content of the project file. Extract the required information and then arrange it according to your needs to prepare a report ready for printing or sharing. 

~15 min.
BIM connectivity
Module

Connect to BIM by exporting Robot’s model data to Revit, where you can manage changes and coordination. Compare results in different solutions to understand the model and promote collaboration.
