Hey everyone,

I am a newbie to the forums but not so much a newbie to Revit.  I've used it for my last four semester projects in school, and now I'm working at an office in NYC.

My office doesn't use Revit for CDs, I am mainly a 3D renderings guy.  It has been implied that if the office were to transition to Revit, it would basically be my project to initiate, since it's a small office of CAD-loving people.

THEREFORE I'm looking for a good reference book (or blog) for implementing Revit in the office.  I started out and am happy with Paul Aubin's Mastering Revit book from 2008, but I need more help with worksets, schedules, linking, and other things that go into CD's.  Any help would be appreciated

I know this may be a weird way to introduce myself, but after moving, getting a job and starting my IDP, I'm really excited about participating in the BIM community, so here I am!  Hopefully I'll have some families and stuff to upload in the future.

I'll tell you what our office did (and there was only 2 of us).  We basically jumped in head first.  We did not have anybody in the office familiar with the program, see we learned in on our own from the ground up.  There are two things that really helped us...

1. Revit city is AWESOME!  Just reading through other posts helps just because you'll get a good understanding of the trails other people have gone through... and usually the solution to their problem.

2. has the best training videos.  In my opinion, these are a lot better than any book.  Very well worth the money.

AUGI forums are nice too


also, search youtube for free tutorials, as CADclips cost money (no idea how much).

The above channel has some good tutorials.

Good luck to you!
