In today's AEC industry, risk mitigation is a key factor in ensuring a cost effective project. One way to reduce this risk is to prevent costly mistakes in the field by detecting them within your Revit Model Project. The Interference Detection Tools within Revit will allow you to find all the clashes within your model and help you fix your design before it is constructed in the field. If you would like to learn how to utilize this tool to your fullest potential, then this course, Revit Essentials: Interference Checking is for you! In this course, you will learn all about Interference Checking. First, you will learn what interference checking is. Next, you will learn where and when they are used and how to create your own custom interference check. Finally, you will learn how to resolve any conflict found utilizing the interference checking tool. When you complete this course, you will be able to apply what you have learned to ensure your designs do not have any conflicts within the Revit model. Software required: Revit.

Hi everyone my name is Dzan Ta and welcome to my course "Revit Essentials: Interference Detection. I am a technical specialist based out of Kennesaw, GA specializing in all things BIM.

Today you are going to see how interference dectection tools within Revit help reduce construction time, save money and reduce construction risk. You will gain a better understanding of what interference dectection tools are, where interference checks are used, how they are used as well as learn how to create custom interferecne checks for future use.

Some of the major topics we're going to cover include:

  • You will learn what interference checking is within Revit
  • You will learn where they are used within Revit
  • You will learn how to create custom interference checks for use within Revit
By the end of this course, you will be comfortable creating any interference check and resolve those conflicts within Revit for your design.

Before beginning this course, you should be comfortable in the Revit software and 3D modeling.

I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn all about interference checking wihtin Revit with the "Revit Essentials: Interference Detection" course at Pluralsight.
