Quoting thetabest from 2011-05-24 10:23:05

"if everyone had the time to sit down and read the help files"

along with buying my first student version of revit building 8-

i bought my first book "Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit Building 8"

by Daniel John Stine.. i read the first couple of dozen pages about things

like trim and align and dimensions and stuff- but i never read the rest

of the book.. over the last five years i have bought maybe a half dozen

of the best revit books and so far i have only read the introduction on

a couple of them.. (i guess they look good on my bookshelf)..

i bought the santa barbara house kit videos from cadclips and i have

looked at them a few times but never really watched any of them..

i have almost never read any help files- nor have i ever really read

any user guides or tutorials- nothing..


the only thing i have done with revit in the last five years is play with it..

by play i mean like explore things.. i try to figure things out and test

things and see what they do- until i get it.. that has been HALF of the

way i have learned revit..


a THIRD of the way has been from me being a revit troll in several

revit forums over the last five years.. i like to read revit questions by

members and see how quickly i can get an accurate as possible answer

and really be a help to somebody.. but i rarely asked questions of my own..


the other third of the way has just been me reading stuff on the

internet about revit.. and i like to get inside the mind of the revit

development team at the "factory" and figure out what's going on

at autodesk..


but "read the help files"?- no not me..
