The REVIT WEEK is a 6-day intensive project-based workshop and training course on using the Building Information Modelling (BIM)* tool: REVIT ARCHITECTURE.

This workshop and practical training course aims at making a hands-on training on using the BIM tool. The learning process will include a project-based practice, where each participant will be guided through a step-by step training to build up and make full detailed drawings for a sample editable medium-scale architectural project.

The aim of this workshop and training is to make participants able to use the benefits of the tools from the conceptual design stage to final stage, create colour fill, 3D perspective, rendering, detailed drawings, quantities surveying and estimation, documentation, printing and limited walkthrough animation.

BIM is beyond 3D modelling for visualization. The user creates a virtual building, with all its properties, making a virtual “real” building, where any data can be easily extracted from it such as plans, elevations, sections, schedules… etc. BIM also enables the user to communicate the model with other applications, such as structural analysis, green building analysis, heat load calculation, etc…


The workshop includes both the – commonly classified – Basic and Advanced Levels of REVIT as follows:


1. BIM, working with one model using different views, understanding Revit elements. Hierarchy, Recent files screen, application menu,       project browser, navigation, properties palette, selection and modify basics, options.

2. Starting a project, new project, template importance, project settings, open, save, levels, grids and columns.

3. Modelling basics.

4. Snaps, drawing walls, locating walls, modify tools, adding doors, widows, constrains and components.

5. Link , import and group.

6. Import DWG files, import DWG topography, import tips, group, REVIT links and managing links formats.

7. Custom basic type, stacked walls, curtain walls (curtain grid, mullions, panels), wall sweep and wall reveal.


Sketch Based Modelling Components:

Working with floors, roof (by foot print, by extrusion, modifications, slope arrows, ceiling, adding openings, stairs and railings .

Visibility and Graphics Controls:

Object style, visibility graphics override, hide, isolate, view range, using line work tool, and work with wall view.

Annotation and Details:

Add text, dimensions, symbols, legend view, detail callout, detail component, field region, and masking region.

Sheets and Plotting (With Project Practice).

Schedules and Tags:

Tags, schedules, modifying schedules, creating key schedules, Rooms, adding rooms, controlling room numbers and bounding elements.

Sheets and Details:
