This is a hands-on introduction to building information modeling (BIM) software for architecture. Instruction will focus on how both graphic and non-graphic architectural information for a building is produced through the creation of a single project database represented in a 3D model. Learn user interface: ribbon; become proficient with templates, basic floor plan, and basics of the building model; explore, create, and modify 3D view; use dimensions and constraints; and develop the building model.
Competence using Windows, familiarity with drafting techniques; knowledge of CAD is helpful.
