Revit Structure Basics e-Learning

Subscription members, as part of your benefits, you can download the following through the Subscription Center or via the Communication Center located in the Info Center within the product.

Building Information Modeling

This lesson describes building information modeling (BIM).

Exploring the User Interface

This lesson describes how to use different parts of the Revit Structure user interface. You begin the lesson by learning about the parts of the user interface and the steps to display and hide the tabs on the Design Bar. Next, you learn some recommended practices for exploring the user interface. The lesson concludes with an exercise on exploring the different parts of the user interface of the software.

Working with Revit Elements and Families

This lesson describes how to work with different types of structural elements and families. You begin the lesson by learning about structural elements and families. Next, you learn some recommended practices for working with them. The lesson concludes with an exercise on working with structural elements and families.

Working with Views

This lesson describes how to work with the different views listed in the Project Browser. You begin the lesson by learning about views and the use of view parameters. Then, you learn about the steps for creating a dependent view and some recommended practices for working with views. The lesson concludes with an exercise on exploring and creating views.

Controlling Object Visibility

This lesson describes how to control the visibility and graphical representation of objects in a structural model. You begin the lesson by learning about controlling object visibility and graphical representation. Then, you learn the steps to modify line styles to control object visibility and use filters. Next, you learn some recommended practices for controlling object visibility. The lesson concludes with an exercise on controlling object visibility.

Working with Elevation and Section Views

This lesson describes how to work with elevation and section views. You begin the lesson by learning about elevation and section views. Next, you learn the steps to control the visibility of elevation and section tags. You also learn some recommended practices for creating elevation and section views. The lesson concludes with an exercise on working with elevation and section views.

Working with 3D Views

This lesson describes how to work with 3D views. You begin the lesson by learning about 3D views and cameras and how to navigate through a 3D view. Next, you learn the steps to create and modify 3D views and change the material properties of elements in a 3D view. You also learn about some recommended practices for working with 3D views. The lesson concludes with an exercise on working with 3D views.

Starting a Project

This lesson describes how to set up a project and transfer standards between projects. A project is the database of information for the design of a building model. It includes the entire structural design and the associated documentation. You set up a project before you start creating a building model. You also need to learn how to organize your content on levels, load in content families, and set up annotations to match company standards. All these requirements can be met by setting up template files.

Adding and Modifying Levels

This lesson describes how to add and modify levels in a structural model. Levels are finite horizontal planes that act as references in a structural model for level-hosted elements such as roofs and floors. You can also use levels to define the vertical extents of walls and the vertical placement of elements such as beams and columns.

Creating and Modifying Grids

This lesson describes how to add and modify grids. Grids form the basic framework in a structural model. Grid lines are displayed on structural plans specifically for locating columns and beams.

Working with Structural Columns

This lesson describes how to work with structural columns. Structural columns are load-bearing elements having type and instance parameters. Before adding columns in a structural plan, you create a grid. You then add structural columns relative to grid intersections. By default, only a few column sizes are loaded into a project. For additional column sizes, you can load columns from the structural column libraries to the project template. You can create new structural column types by duplicating an existing column type and specifying the dimensions and other parameters.

Working with Structural Walls

This lesson describes how to create new wall types, create structural walls in a plan view, and add footings and pilasters. Structural walls resist gravity and seismic forces and are designed and scheduled accordingly. During the design phase, you add structural walls to the structural model that act as placeholders for the height and width of actual walls. You can modify predefined structural walls or use them as templates to create new custom wall types. After creating structural walls, you add footings and pilasters at the base of the walls to provide support. You can also create stepped walls and stepped footings by placing individual walls, each with its top and base elevation set based on the requirements.

Adding Floor Framing

This lesson describes how to add floor framing to a structural model by adding beams. Floor framing is a collection of elements such as girders and beams that support a floor system. Floor framing is generally supported primarily by framing members such as walls and columns. Beams are floor framing elements that form the primary support structure for the floor. In certain projects, you need to use beam webs or flanges to represent openings in a structural model. These openings allow passage of ducts, pipes, or other construction elements.
