After you have mastered how to use the software and utilise the provided library, this 2-day course will teach you how to create custom Types, Families and Materials to create your own personal library.
You will learn how to manipulate components and create bespoke detail components, apply phasing to your project and creating what is known as a Design Option which allows you create multiple design variations in the main model.
You will then cover the remaining aspects of the software such as the projects location, altering the Visualisations, importing & linking CAD files and Collaborating on a single model.
This course is instructor led, involving the utilisation of examples and exercises in a workshop environment. Download the course details
