Course purpose:

The course aim is the mastering of basics and also more advanced solid modelling, parametric control and quantity calculation with REVIT 2020. At the end of the program, the student will have drafted their house project in BiM using prefab x-lam techniques.

The course must also provide the student with basic knowledge and understanding of how BiM is used within the AEC industry. The BiM course will have a focus on industrial construction, prefabricated wooden building systems and efficient production.
The aim of the program is that after completion, the student should have the following knowledge, skills and competencies.

The course provides knowledge in:

-LoD (Level of Development) BIM Development level.
-LoG (Level of Geometry) Modeling development level.
-LoI (Level of Information) Information development level.
-Categories, Families and types elements.
-Basic principles for parametric control.
-Basic principles for Revit computing power.
-Prefabricated wooden building systems within BiM.

After the course, the student should have skills in:
-Create sketches and extrusions to model construction details.
-Create walls, stairs, ceilings, windows and floors etc.
-Create assemblies using parties.
-Create elements at the right distance in between them and setting aligned dimension
-Reinforce a simple concrete footing
-Use some simple steel form and steel connection
-Install and use a plug-in for Revit for X-lam wooden structures
-Create sections and facades.
-Insert BIM elements downloaded from corporate websites.
-Manage visibility of BiM information warehouse.

After completing the course, the student must have the competence to plan and model simpler constructions, building components and building parts, generate construction drawings of these and be able to create configurations to handle variants of a BiM product.
The knowledge that the course and skills that the course provides must give the student competence to work after approximately 500 hours of additional internship, as a BIM specialist in construction consultants, construction contractors etc.

  1. Elise O

    Interesting course, I liked the way it was explained the Families and LoD

  2. simon.m

    I couldn’t expect more from this Revit course, I warmly suggest it!

  3. mark.l

    Fully satisfactory from the 5 weeks of BIM.

  4. regina.w

    Now a totally unexplored BIM world is unfolded, thanks to the organizers!

  5. gerd.r

    I liked the way in which Michele simplifies difficult BIM concepts, I suggest to follow the course!

  6. tulkin.k

    Michele är en av mina lärare. Han kunde lära mig att använda rätt programvara “Revit” och jag är mycket tacksam åt honom. På de perioden var jag en studerande på Yrkeshögskolan i Skellefteå – Specialist träkonstruktion. Sutureringen var distans och han kunde lära oss på distans och detta var fantastiskt! Nu jag kan använda Revit också, men jag har inte hittat ett arbetsplats.

  7. mila.k

    I was expecting something different from this BIM thing, I do not know if I will use it actively in my career.

  8. elizandra.t

    Achei muito bacana o curso do Miquele, o cara conhece o BIM e sobretudo gosta de ensinar a matéria. Esforçado e preparado, dinheiro bem gasto.

  9. robcat127

    Very interesting course, higly recommended to a novice in BIM like I am. Michele is an amazing teacher.

  10. ashok.s

    Excellent Course, that gives a good overview of BIM simulation in construction very well design . I learnt so much about BIM and new features. I look at for the first time and the presentation given by this course was awesome.

  11. valeria.b

    Great teacher and very interesting class, he made me love BIM!

  12. silvia.b

    Michele and his team are a great professional support, with a wide knowledge in BIM and Revit modeling. I would recommend Kalisode Network to anyone who needs help in lighting design or technical and graphic support.

  13. nikolaj.l

    I expected more training during the week-ends, other than this the course was interesting.

  14. martina.m

    Gli esercizi e le spiegazioni sono state commisurate al tempo che avevamo a disposizione.

    Forse 15 persone sono troppe per avere un buon follow-up personale!

  15. niklas.v

    Utbildning som väver ihop teori, övningar och verklighet. En erfaren lärare som verkligen brinner för att lära ut.

  16. johan.f

    Proffsig och energifylld utbildning om BiM.

  17. kajsa.f

    Jag tycker att kursen är svårare och mer krävande än man tror. Jag lärde mig mycket värdefulla kunskap om BIM och fick en bra bild av vad yrket innebär.

  18. josefin.o

    Jag gillar att kursen är bred även om det bara är en grundkurs. Övningar är roliga, dem ger mersmak och jag känner mig tryggare som professionell!
