Course Information


This training is intended to introduce students to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that make it a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The goal is to familiarize you with the tools necessary to create, modify, and document your parametric model. Topics include:

  • Introduction to Autodesk Revit Structure, Basic Drawing and Editing
  • Setting up Levels and Grids, Working with
  • Starting a structural project based on a linked architectural
  • Adding structural Columns and
  • Adding Foundations and structural
  • Structural
  • Beams and Framing
  • Annotating Construction Documents, Detailing,


The objective of this course is to educate participants on the principles and concepts of building design, extending to the creation of construction documentation, using Autodesk Revit Structure.
