Course Content

 

This is the technical operation level of BIM (Revit) in the core modelling technique – families.

Being the core of the BIM (Revit) technology, Families are the most fundamental yet most important part of a BIM project for ALL disciplines.

The course covers from the most fundamental family building using technique including Extrusion, Revolve, Blend, Sweep and Sweep Blend; to the most sophisticated parametric design principles.

These techniques can be applied in Architecture, Structure and MEP.  The course not only facilitated all disciplines to produce 3D BIM components for modelling purposes, but more importantly on the management of information to facilitate professional issue of drawings from scheduling and tagging, with consistent information flow.
