Is there any good "Creating Families" tutorial that can be downloaded?  I really have a problem using the solid form and void form tools, and I often dont know what tool to use when, and how to use them.  I am learning by trial and error, but it is painstankingly slow.  If there was a tutorial that showed how to use all those features, and the cut/dont cut geometry, and the join/unjoin tools, it would be a big help.  I read the Help section on these, but they dont really tell you how to do it, or when to use it.

Have you looked at the links from this site?  There are quite a few of them and all have some tutorials that you will find useful.  Look under the resouirces tab below.

There is also the Families Guide from Autodesk. This is the 2010 Version

Thanks, that is for Revit Arch, and 2010.  Can I use that for 2009 MEP?  I have 2010, but havent loaded it yet, I dont have a handle on 2009 yet, and again, it is MEP.  i was hoping there is a tutorial for MEP 2009, but I cant find one.  I did look at resources, but couldn't find anything with a quick scan.

Hey ... if you are just starting - go directly to 2010.  You don't want to have to learn all over with the ribbon.  In addition 2010 MEP has way more MEP content than 2009.

I would, unfortunately the one job we are doing is in 2009 currently.  That is one thing I really dislike about changing programs every year is all the new stuff and changes you need to learn.  This program is hard enough to learn without worrying about next years version.  I know they really really changed the GUI, I hope other aspect got better too.

I am thinking though that most stuff I am having issues with in 2009 will still be there in 2010, as allot of it is basic.

 I taught myself AutoCad, taught myself Autolisp, created our companies custom menus, and got to be very proficient.  With Revit, I'm getting very proficient at denting the walls with my forehead!

I should use that for my signature!
