Welcome to the Course

So you are looking to get up to speed with Autodesk Revit Architecture?

The good news is that you’ve come to the right place to learn all the fundamentals of Autodesk’s industry-leading BIM platform. You probably have a few questions regarding what you will learn and how. I’ll try to pre-empt some of the questions you may have, by means of the Q&A below. If you have any further questions about the course in general, please feel free to contact me.

Who is this course aimed at?

This course is for the total novice. No prior experience of Revit is required. It assumes you know nothing about the software.

What will I learn upon completion?

By the end of the course you will have a thorough understanding of all the primary concepts & principles of Autodesk Revit Architecture. With an appropriate amount of familiarity of these concepts (you’ll need to practice what you learn), you will have the competence to produce a detailed BIM (Building Information Model)

What is the format of the course?

The course is divided into a number of Modules and Units. It is broken down into logical sections such as 3D Elements, Detailing, Creating Views, etc. Each Unit has a video to watch. The videos are hosted on the BIMscape YouTube Channel. You can use this page as a quick index to all the videos in the course.

What if I have a technical question as I undertake the course?

The basic video course is free on YouTube. However, if you would like unlimited forum support when taking this (or any other BIMscape) course, you will need to have an active BIMscape Membership. The Premium Version of this course comes with 6 months membership as standard, as well as a 300+ page companion Ebook. If you are taking the free version, please do not email me technical questions or ask them in the YouTube Comments box. That’s what the member’s Support Forums are for.

I do not have a copy of Autodesk Revit

All Autodesk software is available for a free 30 day trial. I would suggest you start your trial when you are ready to undertake the course. Just visit the official Autodesk website and search for ‘Revit‘. If you wish to purchase a licence for Revit, you can do so through the Shop here at BIMscape.

What are the benefits of the paid version of the course?

The premium version of the course offers a number of benefits over the free YouTube playlist:

  • Videos are embedded at BIMscape and streamed from Vimeo Pro (so no adverts)
  • BIMscape’s LMS (Learning Management System) keeps track of your course progress between sessions.
  • You get unlimited Forum Support. Ask as many questions as you need to to accelerate your learning.
  • You also receive a 300+ page companion Ebook to download and keep.
