Learn Revit - Stairs and Railings at your own speed
(PRWEB) December 19, 2013
Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its Revit - Stairs and Railings Tutorial, an advanced Revit course providing detailed training on this specialized tool palette within Revit's building 3D design and modeling software.
Revit is Autodesk's platform for building information modeling (BIM) and building design documentation, supporting all phases of building from initial conceptual studies through to the most detailed modeling and scheduling phases.
With Infinite Skills’ Revit - Stairs and Railings Tutorial, users with some Revit experience can quickly master Revit's toolset for creating and customizing stairs and railings within building designs.
Course author Tim Dundr began his career as an AutoCAD draftsman, and has spent nearly twenty years working in the fields of architecture and engineering helping companies and individuals with implementing and training in CAD software. He has taught at multiple universities, including Kent State, educating students on CAD software from the fundamentals of modeling to advanced modeling concepts.
Following an introduction to Revit and the stairs and railings tool palette, Dundr explains the basics of working with stairs, including stair rules, components, and properties, as well as the two primary methods of creating stairs, building by components or starting with a sketch.
From there, the course moves into using these basic approaches to produce typical types of stairs. Students will use the component method to create straight-run stairs, L and U-shaped stairs, modifying stairs and adding railings.
The course also covers multi-story stairs and monolithic stairs, before moving on to annotation, covering symbolic representation, numbering, and tagging stair components.
Dundr concludes with chapters devoted to creating and placing railings and ramps.
