How long did it take you to learn Revit and start working at a speed that was commercially viable?

I have been learning the past 8 months appx 15 hrs/weel and finally feel proficient at it however it will probably take another year to implement templates and transfer office standards and learn absolutly everything. Get a lynda.com membership it helps a ton.

Commercially viable isn't what it used to be. 

 

I learned the basics of revit back in 2003 while working as an office peon before the program was full-fledged. After a long break, and coming back to work in 2008/2009, I started working on revit in a cad-only office as a means of creating conceptual models to show clients.  Rough was good enough.  Clients were blown away by 3D images, and for awhile, 3D modeling was the bulk of my work.  Eventually, a couple of us pushed to try a full project in revit.  This fell to me, I think I cried my way through 20 hours of work trying to make VG settings, annotations, filled regions and linework look good for a sheet set of about 8 sheets.  Not very efficient.  After that minor success, our office took about 2 years to switch from cad to 100% revit.

 

So at no point were my skills unmarketable, but it was a fortuitous time to learn.

 

today, new hires in our office with little to no revit experience can get brought up to speed in about 2 months.  This is to a point where they get the fundementals.  However, it takes about a year of them asking questions, and me troubleshooting problems until accidents and bad practices taper off and allign with our office standards.
