Using Revit as AutoCAD

For all of you who are not ready to make the journey to BIM and use the most powerful, user-friendly, easy peasy program REVIT like it was designed... you can STILL make the jump to Revit and USE IT AS AUTOCAD.

Yep, you can just draw lines, arcs and circles and waste tons of time and money like you are doing RIGHT NOW!!!

In fact - it will kill your productivity and make you cry and go back to hand drafting - so GET OFF YOUR SORRY BUTT and continue throwing money and resources right down the tubes - because you will never do things quicker and easier until you grasp a hold of REVIT and let it do what it was designed to do...

(YES... I'm on my soapbox again - but I keep getting people telling me it's faster to just use AutoCAD to draft their designs in 2D... they can't seem to see past the end of their noses.)

Hooray! The new versions are out!

The 2009 versions of Revit have been released! New features and many bug fixes make this an exciting time for those of us who have been working with previous releases. One note of caution (I know, such a party pooper) be careful when upgrading projects from a previous version to the 2009 releases. Especially with Revit MEP. The new Spaces feature may require some reworking of schedules and data analysis, so watch for stuff like that.

Also be sure to Audit your files when you open them with the new versions.

Check back here for more information on all the cool new stuff with the Revit 2009 products, coming soon.

Oh, and HOORAY for Mike and Heather!
