SYNOPSIS:

 

Building upon skills acquired in the “Architectural AutoCAD I” course, this course presents advanced topics in architectural CAD software centred on problem-based tasks, topics such as 3-dimensional modelling, parametric building design, building information models (BIMs), material take-off, energy-efficient planning, rendering and presentation, and others will be explored. Industry standard CAD tools such as Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD and Google SketchUp will be used to accomplish this.
