To take fulladvantage of Building Information modeling (BIM), the Autodesk Revit MEP Fundamentals course has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of MEP systems from engineering design through consruction documentation.  This hands-on course is intended to introduce students to the software's interface and basic HVAC, electrical and piping/plumbing components that make Autodesk Revit MEP software a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool.  The objective is to familiarize students with the tools necessary to create and document a complete parametric model.  The examples and practices used are designed to take the student through the basics of a real world project, from linking an architectural model to an MEP template to using Revit MEP tools to design HVAC, electrical, plumbing and piping systems to create complete construction documents in 2D or 3D.  Coordination is accomplished by monitoring of the Architectural model to detect changes to the design and interference detection to assure that clashes between elements are picked up during the design phase rather than during construction.

 

 XCAD-028 Autodesk Inventor-Introduction

Section: W01 (Old Westbury)

Tuesdays: June 3, 10, 17, 24, July 1, 86:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Fee: $395

Autodesk Inventor's inherent andf intuitive command set allows users to create, edit, analyze and print 3-D models and drawings.  Create one model/assembly and the orthographic (plan) views are automatically generated and you may parametrically modify the entire model from any view.  This course will provide fundamental training for Autodesk Inventor users.  Upon completion, you will be able to contruct simple parts and assembly models of basic to moderate complexity in generating 2-D/3-D drawings.  With AutoCAD compatibility, adaptive technology, large-assembly performance and intuitive workflow, students have the freedom to design enhancements to make top-down assembly design faster and easier.  Expanded tools give users more options for importing and exporting designs.  Drawing manager enhancements that give users more control over the behavior of detail views.  This program can be utilized by all disciplines of engineers, designers, technical personnel and drafters alike.
