In my limited experience using it, I don't think most engineers familiar with Etabs or Risa (or any GUI based structural analysis software) will have much trouble adapting to Revit and building models. I think the challenge will be in making it look good once printed on paper.

We haven't done a BIM project yet, but we are looking to do an upcoming project in Revit for the first time because the architectural firm uses Revit.  We figure this would be a good time to try it out and get some experience using it.  I'm the lucky duck who gets to learn how to use it, so hopefully I won't make a mess of things.  Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated. 


Sorry Casey…didn't exactly answer your question.

There is an article on "Building Design & Construction" interviewing with David Bleiman, S.E. on BIM.

I'm curious as how many structural firms (California and others) have actually integrated BIM (Building Information Modeling) into the design process?
