6 Phases of a Revit User
« on: July 09, 2007, 08:17:58 AM »
No Revit site is complete without Chris Zoog's 6 Phases of a Revit User!

Phase One - Initial Excitement!!!

"Holy ****! Look what I can do with this thing!"

Phase Two - First bump

"Hmmmm...? Why won't it do what I want? That's not how I do it in (insert other cad software here)!"

Phase Three - Creamy Middle

mmm... things are going more smoothly, now......mmmmm"

Phase Four - WTF stage

The family editor "eats you up and spits you out"!

Phase Five - The Enlightenment

Things really begin to click! You understand why things are happening in your model, and better yet how to control them and avoid problems. You have conquered the family editor.

Phase Six - Zen of Revit

You have mastered nearly all things revit. You "know" what Revit "likes", and what it "dislikes" during model construction, a sixth sense, really. You spend your time exploring and tweaking advanced scheduling, OBDC, external parameters, AR3. You have a template to beat all templates, families for every situation.

Now if I could only get past Phase 2.  I suppose some formal training is in order.  :?

I'm mostly on level 5. The family Editor on step 4 I'm not a master at yet, but I can use it. Everything "clicks" now for me, I just need to research answers from time to time. It will be a loooong time before I reach final enlightenment.  :-o :-)

Shouldn't this be titled:
"6 Phases of a Revit Jedi Master"? ;)




....there is no try.  Only do.
