Dams in Revit

  • Registration Closed

This workshop will cover the user interface, how to navigate a 3D view, and the basic model tools including how to place Walls, Floors, Columns, Beams, and Foundations.

A computer is required with Revit 2023 installed to follow along and develop a 3D model of a small Dam. The Dam will consist of a left and right training wall with buttresses, a sloped spillway with baffle blocks and an end sill, piers, and a walkway. After the lab, participants will have the ability to navigate a Revit Model to use for client meetings, presentations, and help estimate a budget for drafters. 


Discover the Autodesk BIM software called Revit. Get familiar with when it can be used and how Revit is used to model Dams and develop construction documents. Learn how to model a small dam using the Revit tools to place a wall, floor, column, beam, and foundations. Get training on navigating Revit to present or use in a client meeting. Collect information to be able to estimate time and budget for drafters.
