Revit Architecture is Autodesk's purpose-built design application for BIM (Building Information Modeling). You will be introduced to Revit Architecture's powerful 3D model organization for visualization, presentation, and creation of construction documents. Learn how to save time and reduce errors as design changes are automatically coordinated throughout the entire model and drawing set."
