BIM Training Course | Rhino to Revit Workflow.
About this course
Embark on an enlightening journey with ArchAdemia’s Rhino Inside Revit Training Course, a perfect blend of creativity and technical proficiency for aspiring and experienced architects. This course is a unique gateway to mastering the integration of Rhino and Grasshopper into the Revit environment, revolutionising how architectural projects are visualised and executed.
Throughout this comprehensive 5-part series, participants delve into the intricacies of importing complex 3D models from Rhino, fine-tuned in Grasshopper, into the detailed world of Revit. You’ll learn to transform these innovative designs into precise architectural drawings, covering everything from detailed plans and elevations to complex sections and junctions. The course doesn’t just focus on software skills; it immerses you in a practical approach to modern architectural design.
A distinctive feature of this course is the hands-on application of these skills to a real architectural marvel – Zaha Hadid’s Heydar Aliyev Centre. This practical exploration provides invaluable insights into real-life challenges and the application of advanced software skills in a real-world context. It ensures that the learning experience transcends beyond theory, offering a deeper appreciation and understanding of architectural detailing.
On completing this course, learners won’t just have mastered ‘Rhino Inside Revit’; they will have embarked on a journey of continuous professional development. Recognising this, ArchAdemia encourages learners to explore further learning paths, such as our courses on Rhino & Vray, Parametric Masterclass, Grasshopper Basics, The Essential Guide to Revit, and Revit for Beginners. Each of these courses is designed to complement and build upon the knowledge gained in the Rhino Inside Revit course, offering a comprehensive educational journey in architectural design and rendering.
By enrolling in this course, you’re not just signing up for a learning experience; you’re joining a community dedicated to architectural excellence. With our certification, you’ll have a tangible testament to your enhanced capabilities, ready to take your architectural career to new heights.
Dive into ArchAdemia’s Rhino Inside Revit Training Course and begin a transformative journey into the world of advanced architectural design and detailing. Whether you’re just starting your career or looking to refine your existing skills, this course and our subsequent learning paths offer everything you need to succeed in the ever-evolving world of architecture.
Skills you'll gain
We start the course with the most simple approach, importing your Rhino geometry as a reference. This is perfect for when the building is finished and you want to utilise Revit’s drawing and sheeting up capacity to export drawings with your own title blocks, revisions, date and so on.
The second lesson and second workflow demonstrated in this course, brings geometry over from Rhino as if it were made within Revit to begin with. This means that the building import’s with BIM information slots so that you can fully utilise the BIM environment of Autodesk Revit.
The third lesson covers a very powerful topic, the world of connectors. Connectors combine software via a cloud connection to seamlessly transfer data been applications. This lesson focuses on marketing leading connector app ‘Speckle’. Speckle ‘extracts and exchanges data in real time between the most popular AEC applications using our tailored connectors’. This method allows you to make changes in Rhino and see them live sync within Revit. Learn more about Speckle here; https://speckle.systems/
In this lesson we deploy a plug-in built by the creators of Rhino themselves. This effectively allows you to run Rhino & Grasshopper within Revit itself. Due to the functionality of Grasshopper, a synchronisation can be made between the geometry it creates and how it’s produced and understood in Revit. This plug-in creates a new tab in the Revit ribbon at the top of the software and the geometry you see within Revit comes through as ‘native’ meaning you can apply BIM properties to everything you bring in, powerful stuff!

In the final lesson we demonstrate our preferred workflow, how to jump between Rhino and Revit to make changes and how we can deploy Revit’s production capability to produce architectural drawings fit for issue in the real world. This approach can also be used to create proper PDF drawings for presentations and other graphical means.
Why combine Rhino/Grasshopper & Autodesk Revit?
This powerful combination allows for the seamless blending of Rhino’s advanced modeling capabilities and Grasshopper’s algorithmic design versatility with Revit’s robust building information modeling (BIM) environment. It enables designers to push the boundaries of creativity and precision, facilitating the creation of complex, intricate models with efficient workflows. By harnessing this integration, architects can bridge the gap between conceptual design and practical BIM implementation, ensuring that their visionary projects are not only aesthetically compelling but also technically robust and easier to execute. Rhino Inside Revit represents a significant leap in design technology, providing a comprehensive solution that enhances both the artistic and pragmatic aspects of architectural projects.
Meet your tutor - Radu Fulgheci | Architect | BDP
Hi, I’m Radu. I’m an architect with over ten years of experience using many architectural design and modelling applications, for both professional and academic purposes. Working on challenging, high-profile projects, and international competitions, I’ve continually sought ways to optimise my workflow, from single to multiple applications, in order to achieve the best results in the shortest time. Understanding what each software excels at, what to use depending on the type of project and model, and how to migrate projects from one to another, has enabled me to expand my creativity, and has allowed me to always submit projects on time while also looking their best. I believe in constant learning, so regardless of what knowledge level you may be, there is always something new that can help you improve. I want to teach you how to do the same.
