RE: Lord of the Revits: Fellowship of the Bim

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

My progress isn’t what I had hoped. I originally scheduled for the training class in January, but my vendor couldn’t get enough registrants to hold the class. After the second time, the vendor offered to teach the class one on one. While this was very generous, I felt that I wouldn’t get the full impact because I would be more likely to interrupt the lecture because I wouldn’t have to worry about the other students and, end the end, I wouldn’t get what I needed. My class is now scheduled (for the third time) for the first week in May. I’ve worked through some of the tutorials and the program is easier than I thought. Of course, all of the stuff I haven’t thought about for years such as setting up a title block still has to be done. It sounds like the typical monster challenge; it will probably take 20% of the effort to get 80% of the material and then 80% of the effort to get the last 20% of the material.


But, I will get there.

I intend to buy Revit Structure pretty soon. I currently do simple 2D drafting for residential and light commercial jobs with 2002 and 2006.  I want to start getting aquainted with the inevitable. I have been off line for a while. I read a while back that Bill Allen was starting Revit? Bill, anything you can add?

I will take the tutorial, though, I don't know the way...

Will begin the Revit learning process this week. Welcome all sage advice, links to helpful websites, what works, what doesn't, etc... private or public responses are fine.

Any recommendations on training/seminars? Are they worth it? From what I've been told, the tutorials that come with it will get you 1/3rd of the way there, the remaining 2/3rds comes from experience...
