Seminar on Revit Architecture at Saraswati College

Conducted Seminar on Revit Architecture at Saraswati College, Kharghar

Revit is a commercial building information modeling (BIM) software by the company
Autodesk. Its generally used by architects, structural engineers, mechanical, electrical
and plumbing (MEP) engineers, designers and contractors. Autodesk Revit allows users
to create, edit, and review 3D models in exceptional detail. Recently, MIT had organized
a seminar on Revit architecture for students of Diploma Civil at Saraswati College of
, Kharghar. The Seminar consisted of a 1-Hour interactive session on Revit
Architecture which was followed by a hands-on session where the students were
introduced to the software.

During the interactive session, the students were first introduced to the concept of
Computer Aided Design(CAD). Students were given a basic understanding of the
software and its usage in various industries. The three major sections of the software, 2d
and 3d drawing, section, elevation and Drafting were covered in succession. Starting
with the project template file, we started with showing how to change the working units
in the software. Followed by a basic 2d plan using wall, door, window commands and
the procedure to change wall thickness, door and window height and length. Hole
Wizard was also discussed and explored using Section View.

Later, the students were given a demonstration on Revit Architecture, where they were
shown how an actual Architectural model is created on the software using different
Tools involved. Students were introduced to the differences between Revit and Auto
cad. The most prominent difference being – Autocad is a CAD software, whereas Revit
is a software for BIM. While Auto CAD is a general drawing tool with broad applications,
Revit is a design and documentation solution, supporting all phases and disciplines
involved in a building project. The demonstration included, drawing using model
elements in software and also preparing standard drawings of the modeled parts using
the Drafting module. Applying material, creating roof, ceiling and shaft cut were also
shown. Their significance was stated and elaborated to the students. A brief overview of
the model was given by showing detailed parts such as proper placing, dimension,
schedule and quantity.

Finally, the session ended with creating a sheet and dragging model elements onto the
sheet such as elevation, 3d plane view, render view and also creating a duplicate view.
At the end, the expert was open to questions from the students about the software and
any other doubts from the seminar. Answering their questions the expert also motivated
them for a career in Design and Exterior Model.
