Throughout this Revit tutorial, we are going to learn how to easily transition from the world of AutoCAD into the Revit world and BIM. Some key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to navigate the Revit interface and learn where the basic toolsets are located, understand the Revit hierarchy of elements and learn how to link in Revit and AutoCAD files, and finally setup strategies and processes to increase productivity. By the end of the training, we'll have the ability to navigate through Revit, utilize existing content from AutoCAD, and make sense of the processes and workflows that Revit uses. Software required: Revit 2015.
Introduction and Project Overview (Music playing) Hi everyone, my name is Evan Anderson-Decina. I'm an architectural graduate, soon to be architect, at a design firm in my hometown of Indianapolis. This is my first project on Digital-Tutors, and I'm very excited about it. The industry has been in AutoCAD for so long, and the transition has had a ton of implications on production methods, as well as the design process. In this course, we're going to help you AutoCAD users out there transition into the Revit world and BIM. Some of the takeaways from this course include learning how to navigate the Revit interface and learn where the basic toolsets are located, understand the hierarchy of Revit so navigation can be smooth and efficient, understand how CAD can be utilized in Revit to help ease that transition away from AutoCAD, and set up strategies and processes in Revit to increase your productivity. So by the end of the training, you'll have the ability to navigate through Revit, utilize those existing CAD details and drawings, and understand the processes and workflow that Revit uses. I'm excited to share these tips and techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
