Hi Ladies & Gents,I have just recently started working at a small company doing mostly residential and some commercial projects. We have been using AutoCad for years, now we are transitioning to Revit, however, we don't have anyone in the office know how to document with Revit, particularly construction documentations. Now I have taken some responsibility to learn to document with revit, with only beginner skills. Thus, I am wondering if you experts could lead me to useful resources you may have come across with, let it be libraries; families; templates; websites; tips it would be very much appreciated, and if someone could share a sample or two of a Revit file at CD stage it would be fabulous.Cheers!Andy

So much to learn for one person, you would be better off if someone else is learning with you in an open environment where you can share what you learn.   I suggest you start with outside training from someone like Imaginit where after 3 days, you will be in overload.  Then you start very small with a very simple project.   It will not be right by later standards but it will bring up what you need to learn.   It took us a couple of years to develop our standards and we had an office of over 40. 

 

Again, take it slow and understand now - THIS IS NOT CAD! - Don't try to make it look like or act like CAD.  Learn instead the great attributes of Revit and how to make those work for you.

"Hi Hub, thanks, it does seem that people have been taking a huge amount of time to get well sorted out with revit, we did not know that going in, thanks for the advice again!

We were lucky in our office because a few of us took the training and we were able to start using it right away.   At first, some of us were swearing every day about it doesn't do this or I can't do that.   The interesting thing is that within 6 months all of us hated doing anything in CAD and swore when we had to.  

 

You have to fully embrace Revit.   If you only go half way, then you will probably fail.

 

I will point out that after you learn how, even 2D drafting in Revit is far easier tghan CAD.  And I used CAD a fery long time - since ver 2.6 in the 80's.
