Exploration of Revit Software Aided Architectural Design Education Based on Computer BIM Technology

The development of BIM technology is an amazing trend for the construction industry. The production capacity upgrade with a new technology has inevitably become one of the most important topics of the construction industry. Therefore, the further promotion and application of new computer technologies such as BIM technology have affected the Chinese construction industry to an unavoidable critical juncture. In this paper, we show the Revit software-based experiments, their results based on the college education level. At such a moment, the architectural design major of higher vocational colleges has undergone tremendous changes. The school’s teaching goals are not consistent with the new development of the architectural design industry. In the paper, we present the current studies of the BIM based architectural education. We compared the types of applications such as CAD, SketchUp, Revit we use in education field. In this paper, we show that BIM experiment is the advanced technology, and everyone can work together to contribute to efficient transformation of the construction industry with computer BIM technology. We get BIM skill certificate as a result of the Revit software-based experiments and projects in the teaching. The paper presents the results of experiments, tests, performance, and BIM effects on trainings. In applying BIM in an education, a visualization tool is used to enrich the body of knowledge of BIM education.
