CAD 118 - Introduction to Revit

Credits: 5
Introduction to building design using basic features of Revit Architecture software. Revit Architecture software can be applied across the whole building design and documentation process including conceptual design, detailed design, building analysis, construction documentation and visualization. Introduces students to the design concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and to use Revit’s parametric modeling capabilities to incorporate the industry’s BIM concepts. Previously D T 142.

Enrollment Requirement: CAD 101  or instructor consent.

Course Fee: $55.00

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Create and edit files created in Revit parametric (intelligent geometry) modeling.
  2. Develop a complete set of house architectural plans that will include floor plans, roof plans, elevations and sections.
  3. Create rendered 3-D views
  4. Publish 2-D plans both electronically and printed on traditionally.

Program Outcomes
  1. Apply computer and engineering office software for documentation, communication and approval within an engineering office environment.
  2. Solve problems by referencing Residential and International building codes applicable to the industry.

College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking -Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
  • Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
  • Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning - Quantitative Reasoning encompasses abilities necessary for a student to become literate in today’s technological world. Quantitative reasoning begins with basic skills and extends to problem solving.
