Subscription Advantage Pack's

Another great reason why being part of subscription is getting all the new extensions that are released periodically.  Now, there is a new Subscription Advantage Pack.  There is one download per Revit flavour and there are some pretty cool additions to the platforms.  The one that I like the most is for Revit Architecture which allows for stud modeling to occur.  This has always been a question when talking about wood framing in residential designs, and we always left it alone.  Now, we can in fact model that actual stud framing for a wall, and openings, very cool!!!.

I would suggest that you go to your Subscription webpage and have a look at the new Advantage Packs to see what the new extensions are all about.

How Do I?

With all the buzz going on about Revit, there are a large amount of users that are either learning Revit from the newbie stand point, or are the Revit power users creating content, developing families and fully customized families for your business.

It's been some time since my last post, but training and implementing Revit Arch/Struct have kept me busy. However, instead of providing one of the many types of posts that describe the new tip or trick for Revit 2010 I would like to post a question.

What do you find is the most frustrating thing that you are encountering about Revit? This question is an open ended question for the reader to interpret his/her own frustrations and hopefully respond with a question related to something they’re having problems with related to Revit Architecture/Structure..

Now, I guess this might be a dangerous thing because it can potentially be setting myself up for the unanswerable question, but what the heck, I deal with Revit on a daily basis, so who better to stump or ask for knowledge than a propeller head like myself.

I hope I can help and maybe at least provide some useful insight regarding the Revit learning curve.

I do have two suggestions for the new users:

1) Always look at the Type Selector
2) Always look at you options bar.

Paying attention to these two parts of the interface can help solve many issues since Revit has a way of usually giving you what you need when you need it.
