Students learn how to create building components: walls, doors, windows, floor slabs, suspended ceilings, roofs, staircases and ramps, balustrades, terrains, etc..; how to change parametres of these components customizing them to the specific requirements of the project; how to create anf shape views, such as plan views, elevations, sections, 3D and photorealistic images. In the seminars, students learn about good practices for use of highly effective tools, available in this software.
