Description

Description

As a group, we will share ideas, workflows and techniques to help make for a smoother and less painful transition from AutoCAD to Revit Architecture so that others may benefit from our successes and failures. You may have heard that the only way to switch to using Revit is to just dive right in and take the plunge. Well maybe there are options to this “sink or swim” approach. How do you re-train your staff? Who should learn (or not learn) Revit? How can AutoCAD fit into a Revit office. This discussion will help answer some of your questions and address some of your fears. We will share with one another how switching to Revit has affected our office, workflow, staffing and efficiency. Share the successes and failures which you experienced making the transition to Revit. Let's help anybody who is considering, but who has not yet made the move to Revit. Together as a group, let’s share how we all made the switch while putting some common fears and myths to rest.

Target Audience
