Courses for Revit

Whether you are looking for a beginners course in Revit, or you are planning on upgrading your skills, there are plenty of Revit courses out there. I have selected a couple that are worth looking at, with varying costs that will suit any budget. 

Linked In Learning

Formally Lynda.com, LinkedIn Learning has a great selection of courses for Revit. Below are a couple of the most popular courses, and the ones we recommend. 

Learning Revit 2020

 

Autodesk Revit is one of the most popular building information modeling (BIM) solutions today. In this course, join Paul F. Aubin as he delves into the basics of Revit 2020, showing architects and engineers who are new to the software how to work with its key features. Learn how to choose a template; set up the basic levels, grids, add dimensions; and start adding walls, doors, and windows to your model. Paul also demonstrates how to create views and documentation that clearly communicate your plans, import files from other CAD programs, and produce construction documents.

Learning Objectives:

  • Setting up levels and grids
  • Adding doors and windows
  • Loading families
  • Working with 3D views
  • Dimensioning a plan
  • Adding a schedule view
  • Importing CAD files
  • Linking to another Revit file
  • Working with sheets
  • Generating a cloud rendering

Revit Detailing


 

While Revit is a tool for building information modeling (BIM)—and BIM is a 3D-model-based process—2D drafting and detailing are still fundamental aspects of the Revit design workflow. In this course, Paul F. Aubin demonstrates how to create, manage, and reuse 2D construction details in Revit. Paul shows how to create drafting and legend views in Revit, use 2D linework, place detail components, and complete a detail by adding notes and dimensions. He shows how to create hybrid details, which incorporate a live view of the model geometry with view-specific detailing applied on top. Plus, he demonstrates how to speed up your workflow by using existing CAD details and exporting details from project to project.

Learning Objectives:

  • Creating drafting and legend views
  • Adding text and dimensions
  • Creating hybrid details
  • Adding detailing elements
  • Organizing and naming callout views
  • Using existing CAD details
  • Importing and exporting details

 

Learning Revit Families

 

 

If you’ve used Revit, you’ve probably noticed that the entire model is based on the families you have in place. If you don’t know how to make families, then this course from veteran instructor Eric Wing is for you. Throughout this course, Eric demonstrates the process of creating a family and adding parameters, 3D elements, symbolic lines, and materials. Along the way, he covers template selection, reference planes, line-based families, arrays in families, Yes/No functions, if statements, generic families, and more.

Learning Objectives:

  • Creating a basic profile family
  • Creating a door
  • Creating reference planes and labels
  • Creating visibility parameters
  • Working with advanced families
  • Using yes/no parameters and if statements

Revit: Tips Tricks and Troubleshooting

Courses for Revit
 
In this series, there’s a little something for every Revit designer—beginners and seasoned users alike. Each video focuses on a specific tip, trick, or troubleshooting technique within Revit. Do you import CAD files and want to achieve consistency? Want to get more from your dimensions? Need to check all of the views in a project and see if the settings are correct? Want to consistently configure crop boxes across the entire project? What about getting all the parameters in your family content in just the right order? These are just some of the topics in store. With a new video every week, you are sure to find something useful to add to your growing arsenal of Revit tools and techniques.

Revit Pure

Revit Pure is something a little bit different from your usual online course. This great site offers a complete Basics 2020 Learning Package.

The Basics 2020 Learning Package includes a 258 page straight to the point ebook, 155 minutes of video tutorials, an exercise project to work through so that you can fully understand the key concepts of Revit. Finally it includes a beginners template for Revit, lean, efficient and beautiful. If you don’t know where to start with Revit, I would suggest that RevitPure is a very good place.

Udemy

Udemy has a couple of courses for revit that really stand out.
