I'm a sophomore in high school and for my senior graduating project I'm making a 3d model of the school building and putting it on the school's website for people to "walk through." The school's new, circa '98, and I have all the original floor plans (the architectural package, about 200 drawings) and I'm thinking about using Revit and Viz for the design. My question is, where do I go next? Is this project even feasible? I have about two years until I present it, but I'm only one person and I have some experience with Autocad but none with Revit. Just need some advice, because honestly i've already started doing the drawings by hand in Revit and it's tedious, so I'm wondering if I'm better off doing something else. Thanks for your help, --Josh Campfield

I would certainly go with Revit over Viz. I am evaluating Viz now but to use for renderings. Revit is for building and you can get a student version cheaply. It's the same except it prints out with a "Student something" on the sheets. Stay on Revicity or AUGI and people will be glad to direct you. DGCad is a cheap scource for tutorials. Revit is fairly easy to learn and it is a sound investment since it IS the program of the architectural future. Don't waste your time drawing by hand unless you are doing it for an anthroplogy class. You only get one drawing when you are finished. With Revit you can have hundreds and tons of underlying information. Good luck, you'll have fun with Revit.
