Anybody know of a good starting book for Revit. Had a look at a guy using this program the other day in one of our offices and I was blown away. I just gotta learn it. So any suggestions where to start, I have been searching the net but it's probably better to get info from somebody that has done it. Any self taught revit users out there with any hints. :roll:

Cheers All Dodge.

I LOVE using Paul Aubin's series of books for learning Autodesk programs. I originally used Mastering Autocad Architecture, and decided to use his Mastering Revit Architecture book to learn Revit. He uses very easy to understand items, and you follow two projects from beginning to end. He gives the hardest ways to complete the task, and later within the book shows you more ways to accomplish the same task, but usually a bit easier. This sort of forces you to look at various ways to do the same task within the program, thus helping build your problem solving within the program.

I am teaching myself Revit using Paul Aubin's Mastering Revit Architecture 2009 and it's so helpful. It is simple to understand and I really like that he walks you through the creation of a project start to finish, but also supplies the same project completed on the CD so you can evaluate your work and compare. It is definitely one of the best books I've purchased.

Hi Crystal

How long have you been using Revit and did you find it a steep learning curve from Autocad.

It is a pity that AutoDesk didn't make it with a similar user interface.

I started teaching myself last summer, but got distracted. I actually started going through Aubin's book again last week to refresh went I had learned and to hopefully become better with the program. I don't think there is a steep learning curve from AutoCAD, if anything knowing AutoCAD has helped with learning Revit because there are similar tools and concepts. Honestly if you can draft in AutoCAD you can use Revit, at least that's my opinion.

 

I haven't really ventured far from the tutorials in Aubin's book, but I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with it. I'm an Interior Designer and figured it wouldn't hurt to learn Revit to show clients mock-ups of what their space could be, instead of using hand drawings.

I am an Architectural Draftsman and have never used Revit, but I think it would be good for me as I do mostly interior work these days. In my office we started having a look at it, and I must admit I was impressed with the program.

Do you have any experience with Autocad Architecture? I have found that the learning curve from Autocad to Revit to be pretty steep, but the learning curve from Autocad Architecture to Revit to be very flat, almost non existent. The same principles apply, just different commands and interface.

Hi

I do mainly residential and a lot of interior work, this involves perspectives and Isometric drawings, thats why I am interested in Revit.
