Hello all!

I just thought I'd introduce myself... I am an AutoCAD veteran - user since R12dos...intermediate level LISP programmer... and currently a Revit MEP novice - and hoping to soon be "good" at it. In addition I am learing the MEP AutoCAD interface as well.

Most of my experience is Arch/ Mech/ Struct and currently I work for a mechanical engineering consulting firm in Reno, NV. We have the full 2010 MEP Revit suite and are not using any of it as of now... we still draw as if we were using R12 or R14 - in fact we may as well still be.

All in all I am looking to learn the MEP ACAD as well as the MEP Revit, as we all know it is the way things are headed... not to mention I am tired of inserting blocks for duct tees, wyes, reducers, etc - as well as being tired of redrawing duct when sizes change.

Basically its time to start using the software to its fullest, so here I am.  I am a sponge at this point for both versions of the MEP software - my only problem is that my thinking is trained in the ACAD world so any help/ advice/ direction is much appreciated. So thanks in advance!


"DIMSCALE" rules!!!

My advice is to set aside a block of time, ie 2 weeks, and go through the tutorial that comes with the program from beginning to end in the first week.

Then pick a building you have already drawn in CAD and model it up as a practice for the second week. Search the help menu, the tutorial, and this website for advice. most everything you need to know is easy to find.

I have tried to learn Revit twice, the first time was on a project witha deadline and because of the timeframe I couldnt learn half the things I wanted to and I ended up getting very frustrated and disillusioned with it. But the second time I was given the space to learn the program FIRST. When you make the time to site down and ONLY learn Revit, you just pick it up so much faster and even though you cant make money off that time it will pay itself off in the future.
