Revit for Fabrication - A Comprehensive FREE Class!

David Beach contacted me about his new FREE class titled "BIM to Fabrication for Conceptual Design".  I first ran across David's content 2+ years ago when he posted a great video about printing Revit models on a Makerbot...  (Click here to view my post about his post...)  David's new class, hosted on Autdesk's Design Academy, features 15+ hours of video tutorials, written guides, and sample files that will walk you through the process of fabricating your Revit models using CNC machines, laser cutters, and 3D printers...  Continue reading to view David's 45 minute Google hangout and to learn more about the class....

More about the class:

"Think like a designer: fabricate a museum building... 

Digital fabrication for architectural design is the process of using computer controlled machines for manufacturing physical objects by leveraging the geometrical output from a 3D BIM model. In this project we will explore CnC manufacturing, laser cutting, and 3D printing as an integrated part of the design process. 

Go from virtual to physical model with this project...

Digital fabrication enhances design insight and design communication. The best way to begin learning the toolsets inherent to digital fabrication is to begin small, integrating model making as part of a design process while understanding its potential for scalable constructs. In this project you will build a conceptual design for a small museum while connecting a BIM model to fabrication processes designed to drive CnC routers, laser cutters, and 3D printers..."

I've begun running through the content and it is very well paced, full of value, and contains great sample files... The age of digital fabrication is upon us and David has created a great resource for our community...
