Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle.  Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure are powerful BIM programs that support the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design, construction, and management phases of a building’s life.  A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom elements.  Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently.  The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® BIM Management: Template & Family Creation training course is to enable students who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom element types and families.  The class can be taught in any one or a mix of all of the software programs using practices specific to each discipline.

During this course you will learn how to:   

  • Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element styles
  • Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formulas
  • Create custom wall, roof, and floor types
  • Set up a family file
  • Create family geometry
  • Create family types
  • Create specific families, including, in-place families, profiles, annotation, and shared parameters.
  • Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types.
