    The Six Stages of Revit

    This is a "re-post" of the classic...

    The Six Stages of Revit - from newbie to nirvana...


    Stage One - Initial Excitement!!!

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

    Stage 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)
    !"

    Stage Three - Creamy Middle
    "mmm... things are going more smoothly, now......mmmmm"

    Stage Four - WTF stage
    The family editor "eats you up and spits you out"!

    Stage 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.

    Stage 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.

        oops, sorry. I posted a .doc file of this in Sandbox forum before I saw your post here. Is there a way to delete that post?

          No need to worry Dave :beer:

          The "Sandbox" will probably be archived as a subforum to the "Out There" forum anyways, and I don´t believe in deleting things (Enough Revit knowledge have been lost this month already) :banghead:

            Nope, if you refer to those threads in Augi where the founders were telling the history of the beginings of Revit, I have them. I considered those posts of such historical value, that I printed them as .pdf or as a screen capture, or something. I have them.

                Needs to be a seventh step: So with your mastery, you decide to take on something bigger. Return to step one.

                I've learned far more about business in the last few years than anything Revit related! ;-)

                  There you go. These documents have historical value. Even more now that the whereabouts of the old content of Augi is uncertain to us.

                  These two pages contain posts with exact dates and information about the origins of Revit, written by the founders themselves. On the second page there are photographs taken at the debut of Revit.

                    WOW! there's some significant history contained in those two pdfs. Thanks mucho for saving those from the ashes Alf!
