This is a basic level course designed to teach you how to use Autodesk Revit as a modeling tool for a virtual pre-construction of a project.

Nowadays, the term BIM (Building Information Modeling) is expanding, causing the use of this methodology for the majority of the projects defining new building, design and quality standards.

In the same way that pencil was substituted by the computer with drawings, and blueprints, BIM is an elemental concept for the construction industry technology nowadays.

This course will teach you how to model an executive project with Autodesk Revit, being the first out of four courses to dominate the modeling in Revit for executive projects.

This course shows how to model Architecture and Structural Projects in an effective and practical manner to develop executive projects.

It includes 2 practical exercises directly involved with modeling, allowing you to execute what you learned, and once it is submitted for review you will obtain a feedback, and if needed further personalized explanation, it will be provided.

Are you tired of taking courses that have a lot of content or go very fast? Don´t worry¡ We know you are looking for quick results. “Skip between sections, retake the course lessons and exercises as many times as needed”.

Use the forum debates to improve and obtain better benefits of it.

It focus on BIM modeling with Autodesk Revit at a basic level, how to set up the project families and utilize the Autodesk Seek families and the basic libraries.

Also, if you will be the first to know about future Mag Architecture & Technology Solutions courses, you´ll get advantage of future courses opportunities and you will be sure to be up to date with the knowledge necessary to excel at work and to achieve better work and professional positions.

Students: 3556, Price: Free

Rendering engines have given us better control of the look we desire in our rendering in recent years, but like any managed software, the default look and options are not always appropriate. This course goes in detail over the reflection process in DCC application and how to tweak the results to get a life like results.

The course will go over how to achieve textured reflections, reflection blending to simulate life like materials like ceramic, porcelain and metal and ultimately have full control of the desired look of your rendering.

The course is only an hour long and requires no assets beside two spheres and a grid.

Happy rendering!
