Intro to Chemistry Meets Revit

The Intro to Chemistry Assignment

A couple years ago, our college intern, Rachel Hughes received a high school 'Introduction to Chemistry' assignment to: Calculate the volume (in cubic centimeters) of her irregularly-shaped Chemistry classroom, with a a sloped ceiling.

While she was taking  AutoCAD architecture classes; she was willing to learn how to solve this problem using Revit Architecture. Her Chemistry teacher approved the use of Revit to solve the assignment and asked for a brief description of the steps she used.

 We used a Revit "test drive" training process; that I developed for shortening my students' Revit classes. She took the Revit "steering wheel" and two hours later discovered the answer to her Chemistry assignment. While enjoying the intuitive "test drive" of her first Revit project; it also underscored the value of "I" in BIM.

"Revit creates the entire room faster than my AutoCAD."

Here's a summary and brief description of sequential Revit steps taken; that she submitted to the Chemistry Teacher.

Revit-BIM Experience Required | Architect –Engineer -Construction Jobs

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 25, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Many architectural, engineering and construction job postings; require applicants to have proficient BIM software and project experience with Revit, ArchiCAD, Bentley, or Vectorworks. The BIM skill-set is now in higher demand; then the CAD skill-set.

Here are 3 sites, I personally use and continue to refer to my colleagues; if they are looking for jobs that require Revit experience OR advertising their open Revit job positions.

1) LinkedIn.com | Jobs Search Page: www.linkedin.com/jobs

LinkedIn is a highly respected, networking portal; with millions of global members from all professions. Post a job, maintain your resume in your profile while searching for jobs or key contacts within the organization you are researching.

Last night, I found 17 Revit-BIM based jobs in LinkedIn Job Search using the keyword "revit". They were posted within the last 24 hours. More than 45 Revit BIM-based jobs were posted in the last 2-7 days. Use the left margin "Filter Tools" to refine the search results. Unlike many job sites; LinkedIn jobs are highly detailed in the job position description.

Another benefit, LinkedIn will also scan your contacts/connections and list possible ways you might leverage your connections to contact or engage in a job's submittal process.
