Hi, I'm Diane from Orlando, FL. I have extensive experience in Autocad and got some formal training here at work on Revit about a month ago.

I FINALLY got onto a Revit project and am looking forward to learning all I can about the program.

See ya on the boards.

Thanks on the Jeep!

When we picked it up in Sept. 2004, just before Hurricane Jeanne blew through it was a 1948 Willys jeep.

Over the past couple years has gone through major modifications and fabrications to become the Willy Mammoth.

The list of mods is extensive.

Off the top of my head:

It's been stretched twice for a total of 25" longer, its got about a 100' wheelbase. It's got a roll cage, and removable exo cage.

It got Toyota axles and running gear, the latest modification has been installing a 3.0L Toyota Turbo Diesel imported from Japan. They are offered, I believe in Japan, Australia, and Europe. That's been quite the undertaking!

It's got a Toyota transmission and Marlin Crawler dual transfer case for an overall crawl ratio of 10.7:1

There are ARB air lockers front and rear, Bobby Long chromoly axles and 38" super swampers.

There's an onboard welder, air compressor and hydraulic winch.

The list goes on, my husband has done extensive fabrication. We have a 32' motorhome and flat trailer the Mammoth across the country to join in the annual Marlin Crawler Roundup on the Rubicon Trail.

Here are a couple links if you are interested.

WOW! That is a serious trail machine. I LOVE the name of your Jeep! Mine isn't nearly as impresive as yours, but I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, I just traded in my 2002 Wrangler sport to get it. I got bit by the Jeep bug and I've owned them since my first '96 cherokee. If you ever have any questions about Revit or just want to talk trail let me know. 

Good luck and Happy Trails

Matt

Thanks Matt! It great to meet another Jeep enthusiatic on a work related board.

I am sure looking forward to both our upcoming vacation and learning Revit (but moreso on the vacation!)

Looks like this'll be a fun City to visit!

I have heard about it, and in fact Imaginit is where I got my training.

There are a few guys from my office that go to the users group. I will look into it as well.

Thanks.

I have been useing Inventor to do my building models. Now I am slogging through another series of tutorials, but I have a project that has a time clock ticking and although i can build a six floor retail building I can't seem to build a simple one floor house that looks like a lean-to. I can't figyre out how to make the side walls angled to join the front and back walls. I'll bet I can't see the forest for the trees.......

Hi Mark,

I can't help you there, or here. You might want to post your question to a tech thread instead of my newbie intro thread. LOL

You might try it here http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewforum&forum_id=2 

 Good luck with that.
