Workshops >Migrating from 2D CAD to 3D CAD using Revit Architecture


Attend the five-day Migrating from 2D CAD to 3D CAD using Revit Architecture workshop June 13-17, 2011 at a cost of $500, at NTID/RIT in Rochester, NY. The workshop will be held daily from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM.


We are in the midst of a major shift in how the AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry is using CAD.  Sustainability, BIM, 3D, 4D and even 5D are the wave of the future.  Autodesk’s Revit Architecture is rapidly becoming the leading CAD/BIM application in the AEC industry. 

This workshop will introduce participants in the general concepts of 3D CAD and BIM.  Hands-on activities will include learning Revit Architecture 2011.




  • CAD versus Building Information Modeling
  • Basic Architectural Objects: Walls, Doors, Windows, Floors, Ceilings and Roofs
  • More Architectural Objects: Components, Families and Nested Families
  • Design Constraints: Levels, Reference Planes and Grids
  • Visual Representations: Views, Visibility, and Sheets
  • Drafting: Dimensions, Notes, Schedules
  • Conceptual Design and Massing
  • Visualizations: Realistic Renderings and Animation





This workshop is designed for professionals in the AEC industry with little or no experience using Revit Architecture.  Basic CAD experience in 2D applications, such as AutoCAD, will be helpful, but is not required.
