i have been working for this architect for a long time and he has decided to move to REVIT.  i have no experience whatsoever and would like to get a VERY GOOD BOOK to teach myself the software.  i have used autocad and ADT for over ten years and would consider myself an advanced to expert user.  i also know that REVIT is completely different fron ADT.  are there any good books?

Welcome the world of Revit.

You should check the "Mastering Autodesk Revit Building". It is a pretty good book.

don't forget to look at dgcad.com or cadclips.com I believe it's called now. Free stuff for a little while, then you have to pay. It'll get you up to speed quickly.

You can also get your free manuals from autodesk using their book request system...

Don't forget to run through the tutorials, they are not overly long and give you a good feel for the program/thought process you need to adapt.

Welcome!  I had to learn Revit on my own as well a couple months back.  Your in for a fun time Smile  I used the "Mastering Autodesk Revit building" book, as listed above too (very good book, very helpful).  I've also been watching the Autodesk Webcasts that they have been playing on their site lately.  If you haven't seen them its ok their archived on the Autodesk website (I really like these because they go through what you can do and explain everything very well and at the end of the webcasts you can ask questions, if you get to watch them LIVE anyways).  I also found the DGcad tutorials to be helpful and the Revit tutorials helped me out ALOT!  Good luck.

Like others here I am learning Revit on my own in hopes of making the move to a Revit office in the near future. After years of tweaking lines in AutoCAD and being constantly frustrated with updating information I find Revit a real pleasure. I am using a great workbood and CD put out by ProSoft. It is 900 pages long and takes you through the process in a visual/text format that makes following along easy. I believe their website is www.prosoft.com.

Hi,

There are quite a few good free tutorials and articles over at www.RevitZone.com

We're just about to start a series on creating your own custom model components, if you're interested?!

Regards,

Ian

Thanks for the nice comments.
