Course Aim
After completing the course student shall be able to:
- Model buildings in 3D in Revit Architecture
- Understand alterations needed to be applied to a model before export/import
- Understand the meaning of global coordinates and its role in construction
- Export models to Google Earth
- Use parameterization to model repeatable objects

The course focuses 3D modelling of building objects. Students will model buildings and their details in 3D in Revir Architecture. The course will not address drawing production.

The course holds three tutorial assignments and two project assignments. The first project assignment is the modelling of a building in Luleå intended for publication on Google Earth. The second project assignment contains parametric modeling of a bridge..


The course is examined through completing all the assignments. The grade is decided through grading the building model in Luleå and the parametric modeling project.
