Revit Architecture Core Competency Workshops

Modena Design Centres have developed a series of workshops to assist Revit users to upskill to Revit expert status.
The workshops are offered at one of our training centres every Friday afternoon for 17 weeks or alternatively on-site (please enquire for on-site pricing). Students receive workshop notes as well as exercises for each workshop, and may choose which workshops they would like to attend.

  • Prerequisites:
  • Revit Architecture, Revit Structure or Revit MEP Fundamentals Course or equivalent in experience in working on Autodesk Revit.
    Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, ie. creating standard elements, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, creating walls, roofs, and other objects.

  • Who should attend:
  • This course is designed for intermediate users of Revit Architecture. The workshops are ideal for aspiring BIM Designers who have existing experience with Revit and are looking to improve the quality of their current portfolio using the latest version of AutoDesk’s Revit Architecture software. The workshops have been perfected in consultation with some of South Africa’s largest architectural firms and offers the quickest and most cost effective way to upskill for a successful Revit implementation.
  • Core Competency Programmes are available for:
  • Revit Architecture | Revit Structure | Revit MEP – Each workshop also includes practical exercises

Lists of available Workshops - Revit Architecture

  • Workshop 1 – Site & Project Setup

Setting up your project with the correct co-ordinates and levels. How to use a DWG from a land surveyor inside of Revit and how to build the topography from it. Cut and Fill calculations of the topography.
  • Workshop 2 – Worksets & Collaboration

A better an in depth explanation on working with a Revit Central file. Part of the workshop is dedicated to better understand working with other Revit files for coordination between disciplines.
  • Workshop 3 – Conceptual Massing

Basics of creating a Conceptual Mass family in Revit. Basic tools and shape creation methods, to loading a Mass family into your project and creating a building from it. Creating Mass Floors, Scheduling the floor areas of the mass that was created, solving the ‘Fish Scaling’ problem when creating curtain walls from Mass Family faces. This workshop will also include some basic adaptive component creation.
  • Workshop 4 – Areas, Rooms & Finishes Schedules

Get more out of working with areas, rooms and finishing schedules. This workshop is also a brief introduction to project, family and shared parameters.
  • Workshop 5 – Views, Sections & Callouts

This workshop highlights common mistakes made in Revit and is dedicated to learning better workflows when working with Views, Sections and Callouts.
  • Workshop 6 – Floors, Columns and Beams

This workshop provides a deeper understanding into working with floors. This workshop can also be considered as an introduction into working with structural elements in Revit.
  • Workshop 7 – Stairs & Railings

Working with component staircases and railing basics. A step up from using the default settings associated with staircase creation. Create a floating staircase, custom railing with a slanted baluster railing.
  • Workshop 8 – Curtain Walls & Mullions

Get more out of Curtain Walls in Revit with this workshop.
  • Workshop 9 – SANS 204 (includes SANS Template) – R1 500,00 excl VAT

Tools, Parameters, Filters, Project Browser Organization & View Templates and Setting up your SANS specific views, Using the key schedules, Combining the SANS 204 Revit Template into your current project, applying the SANS 204 to the project and filling in the necessary information, Building Orientation & Energy Consumption, Floors, External walls,Fenestration, Roof Assemblies.
  • Workshop 9 – SANS 204 (includes SANS Template) – R1 500,00 excl VAT

Tools, Parameters, Filters, Project Browser Organization & View Templates and Setting up your SANS specific views, Using the key schedules, Combining the SANS 204 Revit Template into your current project, applying the SANS 204 to the project and filling in the necessary information, Building Orientation & Energy Consumption, Floors, External walls,Fenestration, Roof Assemblies.
  • Workshop 10 – Family Creation 1 (Basic)

A simple workshop dedicated to understanding the basics of family creation.
  • Workshop 11 – Family Creation 2 (Parametric Arrays)

Nesting and creating formulae to drive or control what these components do inside another family. Nesting is the process of creating families that are then nested inside of other usually larger families. This is done specifically when we want to create an element that has sub elements inside of it. These sub elements are made to react in certain ways depending on what the host family is doing. Control all customised aspects of a family with parameters.
  • Workshop 12 – Family Creation 3

Family Creation 3 will focus on how to create a simple timber truss system, as well as, a more complex steel truss system. The simple timber truss system will focus on parameters such as length and angle in order to create a flexible truss family. The more complex steel truss system will focus array parameters driven by the length and pitch, we well as trigonometric formulas which allow the family to remain flexible.
  • Workshop 13 – Door Schedules

This workshop is dedicated to understanding the workflows for door schedules specific to an architectural application.
  • Workshop 14 – Design Options & Phasing

An advanced look at additional features in Revit related to options and phasing for architectural applications.
  • Workshop 15 – Annotation Families

Families that can be created and used as legend or table views of information that needs to be displayed in this format for your project. This will include a Key Plan for the scenario of multiple buildings on a site. The family will indicate to the contractor or relevant consultants which building the sheet is referring to on the site. The second family will be the step-by-step creation of a Refuse Area Calculation family. This will be a family that will indicate to plan examiner what the size of the refuse area needs to be depending on the use of the building. Lastly we will create a table for showing the schedule of rights and the required parking spaces, how many have been supplied and how many are still required.
  • Workshop 16 – Rendering

This workshop focuses on how to work with the Rendering settings and it’s dependents in Revit.
  • Workshop 17 – Detailing & Annotations

Start creating more intelligent family components and get the most our of detailing in Revit.
