In-House Training - Revit Review

I started 2010, (the year not the Revit version) with changing what I call my Revit Review's.  A weekly Tips & Tricks session I do for in-house staff.  I was hoping to blog about it often but I obviously didn't.  Now I'd like to catch you up.
This is the format.  Once a week for 30 minutes, I show how to use one tool, in about 15 minutes, and questions and closing comments the last 15 minutes.  The reason for that format, is I hoped people would go back and try what we discussed, they have a week to play with it and come back with questions.  The response wasn't as enthusiastic, but I can't expect everyone to like Revit as much as I do.

January:  I started from the beginning.  Placing Walls, Doors and Windows.  I know more than one tool, but I think these can all go together.  Nothing complicated, just how to place a wall, change the type, and important to me, location line.  Based on the questions asked, I did learn something new, a window placed next to a door going through it will generate a warning, keyword phrase here "next to" but doing the same above a door, no warning; I found that intersting. I still haven't asked Revit Guru's why this is, but I will!
Until next time!

Revit 2011 is here

We're four months into the year, I can't believe it!  This year is going by fast.  Revit 2011 is already out (for subscription customers) very exciting, I hope you've been reading like I have all the different blogs out there talking about it. David Light has some a great overview.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am about getting started with 2011, let the fun begin!
