  • Underlying knowledge of Architectural design, Drafting or Engineering practises is recommended. Experience of using CAD packages is advantageous but not essential. Delegates should have a working understanding of Microsoft Windows 7 or latest version.


Course Content


  • This is the fundamental course of BIM.  It aims at the overall introduction of BIM – its nature, core concept, process and implications to the industry.Contents includes the various system settings with Revit environment; the parametric nature of the components and compilation to overall building form; definition and editing of BIM properties, creation of drawings sheets and bill of materials and the overall management of BIM model files.


  • Setting up a drawing and BIM environment


  • 1. Core Concepts
    • 1.1 Introducing Building Information Modeling (BIM)
    • 1.2 Working in one model with many views
    • 1.3 Understanding Revit element hierarchy
  • 2. System Settings
    • 2.1 Basic Standards for Technical Drawings (drawing size and format, scale, line style, lettering, dimensioning, etc.
    • 2.2 Setting up a new drawing and BIM modeling environment
    • 2.3 Basic concepts and operations of BIM software (modeling environment settings, project settings, definition of coordinate systems, creation of levels and grids, input of commands and data)
    • 2.4 Selection of a suitable template
    • 2.5 Creation of a template file (parameter, family, view, render scene, walkthrough, input/output and print settings)
  • 3. Parametric BIM modeling
    • 3.1 Method and skill of parametric BIM modeling
      • 3.1.1 Process and basic method of parametric BIM modeling
    • 3.2 Method and skill of editing BIM entities
      • 3.2.1 Definition of basic model element
      • 3.2.2 Creation of basic model element and its type
      • 3.2.3 Method and operation of parametric BIM modeling – Basic building shapes – Basic building elements such as wall, column, door, window, roof, floor, ceiling, railing, ramp, stair, curtain wall etc,
      • 3.2.4 Editing and operation of BIM entities
      • 3.2.5 Common operations: Actions like move, copy, rotate, array, mirror, delete, group etc.
      • 3.2.6 Sketch operations: Drawing or editing profile of a floor or stair.
      • 3.2.7 Creation and editing of parameters and properties of a family or its instances

      • 4.1.2 Add or edit property value or parameters of a family instance using Property Editor, View Properties
  • 5. Creation of drawing sheets and bill of materials
    • 5.1 Creation of bill of materials based on BIM properties
      • 5.1.1 Creation of BIM property lists: Automatically calculate the parameter values according to relative information from the model. The results are presented as lists of windows, doors, element quantities and materials etc.
    • 5.2 Creation of drawing sheets
