New job finally; Pre-Cast Detailer

Post by Bloodkraze » Thu Sep 06, 2012 12:44 am

So after being out of work for far too long, I finally not too long ago (6 months) got a full-time position at home depot. Now after once again realizing why I hate retail I finally got a job offer to get back into my career path. Structural Drafting/Designing. The company uses Autodesk Revit (which I've never used before) to make pre-cast concrete molds. Hopefully this will open up even more career paths back into what I was doing before (designing alternative fuel factories).

Now, there is a reason for this post and it's to ask people who have experience with Autodesk Revit to share any tips that they think would be relevant to someone completely new to the program. I don't want to go into this job fully blind even though they know I've never used it before.

Thanks, I probably will end up looking at youtube. Autodesk also publishes a lot of training videos, just thought I might look at j2 first since I know a lot of people here do modeling and drafting.

Revvit tends to be a more complex/specialized program than what us modelers might be used to, I know it's used by architectural firms (my mother, for example, is somewhat familiar with it) so the people here that are familiar with it may be limited.

I used it for two years during my High School Engineering courses, however I'm still not too adept with it :T
This is what I did instead

Thats amazing dude. I just sent that around to a bunch of my friends.


Anyways BloodKraze, here's a series of tutorials on youtube. Maybe you've found it already but I thought I'd post to be sure.

This is the first one on the playlist. Hope it helps
