Description

Description

We will share ideas, workflows and techniques to help make for a smoother and less painful transition from Autodesk AutoCAD® to Revit Architecture® . You may have heard that the only way to switch to using Revit is to just dive right in. But can you afford to re-train your entire staff? And do you know who should learn, or more importantly, who should not learn, Revit? There are options to the sink or swim approach, and this discussion will help answer your questions and address your fears. Together as a group, we will share how we have made the switch. We will all share with one another how switching to Revit has affected our office, workflow, staffing and efficiency. We will discuss our biggest successes and failures and any unique ideas or workflows we have discovered that help in making a successful transition to Revit. And we will share our personal experience, knowledge and advice with anyone who is considering Revit, but has not yet made the move.
