My Revit journey is inching towards something or other. Namely, a certain level of competence in the use of Revit.
To this end, Robin has kindly lent a book, "Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011" by Eddy Krygiel, Phil Read and James Vandezande. A total of 1122 page, and weighs in around 2.3 kg. Not a complete beginners book it goes into such areas as Film and Stage and Revit in the Cloud , which I am not going study.
Up until now, I have just picked up a project done previously in Autocad and redrawn it in Revit.
While useful, it seems a bit of a disorganised approach. So I have taken stock of what I do know, and used the headings in the book as a guide for a sequence of study to be undertaken.
This is my list:
1. Advanced modelling and Massing
2. Walls and Curtain Walls
3. Floors, Ceilings and Roofs
4. Family Editor
5. Stairs and Railings
My present situation is that I threw in my mechanical drafting job on the 19th January 2015, hoping to get a change of scene by drafting houses instead. This ties in with a desire to work at home, seeing as I have Revit 2015, along with Autocad etc. I have approached about 8 local architects with an offer of a fixed price per square metre for residential house drafting, but no takers as yet.
Just trolling through other Reviteer's blogs is a depressing journey: I realise how little I know.
Some blogs stand out, this one I like and will be going back to: http://revitrants.blogspot.co.nz/
Just because drawing a wall and inserting a wall is very easy in Revit can lead you into the false idea that this is an easy program to master.
