About this course:

Take an idea from conceptual design to construction documentation within a single software environment. Create more accurate designs with stunning visualisations.

  • Design and documentation
    Place intelligent elements like walls, doors and windows. generates floor plans, levels, sections, schedules, 3D views and renderings.
  • Analysis
    Optimise building performance early in the design process.
  • Visualisation
    Generate photorealistic renderings. Create documentation with cut-aways, and 3D views and stereo panoramas to extend your design to virtual reality
  • Multidiscipline co-ordination
    Is a multi-discipline BIM platform allowing you to share model data with engineers and contractors within, reducing coordination tasks.


  • Understand how BIM changes how a building is designed
  • Develop good 3D modelling techniques
  • Create 2D details from your 3D model
  • Create construction documents
