Description

Description

You’ve been using AutoCAD software to produce your drawings for some time, and you have a huge library of details. Now that you’re moving to Revit software what happens to all these details? You don’t what to just trash them, and you don’t want to recreate them in Revit software. In this class, we'll look at the next step in your transition to Revit software. We'll see how you can still use those details right in your Revit projects straight from AutoCAD software. We’ll explore how we can bring those existing details into Revit software and have them be referenced correctly in our projects just like they were created there. We’ll even look (when you have time) at how to Revitize your AutoCAD details to start building a true Revit detail library. So, if not being able to use your details is holding you back from switching to Revit software—or you're just not sure how to do it—don’t let that stop you. You don’t have to throw them out—they’re still good. This session features Revit, AutoCAD, and Collaboration for Revit. AIA Approved
