I'm not a Revit user....yet. I'm doing the trial version, and I've come to realize I'll never experience the finer points of the software by just using the tutorial. and Ihave a couple questions. 1). Any reseller referrals in Colorado, USA? The trial keeps going to the selection bar that has pre-entered parts. I think this is families. So when you draw a building, any component you want has to be predefined, for ex. you wanted a porch header to be 8" x14" you have to make it then you can use it in your drawing. Then if you change it to a10"x14" later you have to make a new family member, right? same for doors, windows etc. and the custom openings. Do these libraries have limitations? can you delete a built on the fly unit without messing up your data? Being there are so many versions of stuff out there, Is there a way to effectivly catagorize it? What about something more abstract like flashing, do you have to have it entered as a part or can you draw over your assembled 3d part rotated to be a 2D detail? I'm hypothisizing here. Do these things plot as desired, with varying pens, line weights etc. Do your paper documents show as intended. Can you use all the blank spaces on your sheets to optimize paper usage? Who is benefitting from all the BIM data, Do the Suppliers actually depend on the plans references? How do you keep up with Kohler? Lots of subjects here, I'll quit. TIA

welcome aboard Smile like with any other software you are going to spend a bit of time in getting your file ready to used in your office, in Revit you will spend time setting up your template file with all the line weights and families you want, but don't let it stop you from starting, a template file will take 2-3 projects to get to a point where you are happy with, and even then it is still work in progress... yes, you will need to create your families (or download some that are already made, there are 1000's of them) but once you create your "special" family it's there forever. Revit is a big programs that can do many many things, it is easy to get started on but you will need to learn the "finer points" just use it and it will come Smile there is a lot of support here and on AUGI, not to mention Autodesk as well. good luck
