    Getting Revit up running

    Hi all

    Allways dreamt about mastering Revit, so bought 2 Revit educational books with 2 Revit 2012 DVD´s included - bought it used, since I cant afford to buy the latest and newest version.

    But there is no seriel anywhere to find? I have contacted AutoDesk with the DVD partnumbers, but havent heard anything.

    Does anyone in here know if I have been totally screwed, and wont get it up running, or is there some request procedure or something to get it activated??

    Any help is much apriceated ;-)

    Thanks

    Firstly, Autodesk is taking the week (in the US) off so you won't hear from them until earliest next Monday. Secondly I have never heard of an actual copy of Revit being included with a book. Revit costs $1000s of dollars, unless you are a student, in which case you can download an educational version.

      The dvds were actually part of the books? Or just accompanying them? What are the books called?

        I reckon you got the books with some DVDs containing course files for the books along with a TRIAL version of Revit 2012 loaded on the DVDs or a link to the trial version. The trial version lasts for a month before it gets locked. As Dave Jones points out "Revit costs $1000's of dollars".

            Download the trial of Revit. After thirty days, you still have full use of the program, you just can't save, print, export, etc.

                You can get a Monthly subscription of Revit LT for $50
                https://www.autodesk.com/products/re...CED&quantity=1
                LT should be plenty good enough to lean the basics.

                Or you could take a class at a community college. Most of those come with a 3 year full license of the Revit Educational version. It's a fully functional Revit. You just have to agree not to use it for commercial purposes.

                  I just gave this advice in another thread, but to OP I'd suggest simply getting a job and learning as you go. People who know Revit are in high demand, and (in the MEP world at least) most managers can't tell the difference between Revit and CAD and would be hard-pressed to even explain the difference. So, just bulls*it your way into getting hired and figure it out as you go!
