Alright!!

this "appears" to be the community i was looking for.

i am an architecture student who is not new to CAD, nor the idea of modeling design, but i am brand new to BIM.

i am so excited about this software format.  i am now researching books to learn as much as possible.

 look forward to meeting you all,

abulin

((btw: i am having trouble accessing posts, but not posting.  so hopefully i will be able to read your replies soon.))

I'm a student at a Community College in Texas trying to get the minor stuff out of the way.I'm about to transfer to UT in Arlington to really get cracking on my major.

The prog we (the company) are investing in is Revit Architecture.Am I right in saying that the BIM version has the MEP and Structural added for total completion of project scope??

this is great my boss and i were just discussing this. the thing about bim defined as building information modeling can happen without revit, revit arch, mep, and structure are setup to achieve a fully bim model however i have seen models that are only glorified 3d cad model that have come out of revit. the difference between the 3 displines of revit are minor changes within the programing and what you get out of the box however soon autodesk will be starting a file sharing network similar to buzzsaw that will be free for a time to up and down load families.

specifically, bim is a model-based technology that is linked with a database of information. if you need anymore information i can direct you to a plethera of it.

Hmmmm, let me see if I understand this right:

Revit (regardless of the version) can equally be used to create great BIM models or "crap."  It all depends on the user's ability to 1. understand BIM concepts, 2. understand the versatility of Revit and 3. execute it properly.

 I know I need a plethora of information. :DPrimary a good learning guide to not just get started, but to learn all the teachable ins and outs related to the software and its proper implementation for most any project, especially BIM.

You are 100% correct. There is absolutely nothing stopping you using Revit just as a 2D "dumb" CAD programme. You could just draw out everything using detail lines, on seperate drafting views.

Revit seems very rigid when you start learning it- but the more you get to know it- the more you realise it is a VERY, VERY flexinble and powerful system.

Hehe!  Good.  I will try to keep up with the times then.  Puh   I have always been a little disappointed with the old CAD ways of life.  Soooo, how about that educational material that we can purchase?  Any suggestions that may be most applicable to accelerator tips to speed up productivity and then anything for BIM beginners?

I'm sure you've already researched books and materials available, but the tutorials that come with Revit, and then the turorials on this site really are the best places to start.  Then I'd suggest diving right in.  You can read all that's available, but I think that using it, stopping, asking a question here, looking up your question in the help menu (and here) to figure out the terms in Revit (vocabulary in Revit is just enough different from CAD to make it confusing), and learning as you go is really the best way to actually learn the program.  And hopefully, if you pick up any bad modeling habits along the way, you'll learn how to correct them by using the program.

 

Best of luck, and if you have questions, don't hesitate to email.
