Take your Revit Skills to the Next Level – Autodesk Revit Training

Want to take your Revit knowledge to the next level?

The capacity of Revit is huge. Even the most experienced Revit user is still finding new and more efficient ways to use the software and as a result, training and education for this software is of paramount importance. From digital drawings, 3D models, sections and details there is so much to learn. Autodesk Revit Training is critical to the successful implementation of the software.

4 Reasons to learn Revit?

1. Presentation skills that get your work noticed

Revit is all about presentation, whether it be winning your next pitch, marketing your product/service etc or just to better convey design intent. Revit is all about presenting your work in the best possible light.

2. Gain valuable exposure to BIM

Revit is built for BIM. Both Revit and BIM are very important for your future. Revit helps designers design, simulate, visualise and collaborate in order to capitalise on the advantages of the interconnected data within a BIM model.

3. Expand your skills and work prospects

Revit is being used everywhere now and having a background in Revit is fast becoming a set standard that businesses look for. And whilst you are enhancing your job prospects you are also further increasing your efficiency. Win win!

4. Maximize your design possibilities

What’s the chance you like solving problems? Solving problems is what people in the design and construction industry do! But the more quickly and efficiently you can solve these problems the better results can be derived. Using Revit’s intelligent building components to improve accuracy and updating the model automatically enhances collaboration and streamlines your design process.

What’s New for AutoCAD 2021 software

Here’s the official Autodesk AutoCAD 2021 software release playlist from the AutoCAD YouTube channel.

 

AutoCAD 2021 Software Information

Listings of the new AutoCAD 2021 Features and some 2021 ToolSets specifics can be found here. There are additional short official Autodesk features and benefits videos on the page. The free trials for AutoCAD 2021 and AutoCAD 2021 Toolsets are available or will be by this post’s publication.

The What’s New in AutoCAD 2021 page in the rest of the AutoCAD 2021 online help is live along with the new LISP and Developer help. As of this writing only some of the rest of the ACAD 2021 ToolSets online help is yet live. That may change before you read this.

The AutoCAD 2021 System Requirements including the additional requirements and issues for the AutoCAD 2021 Toolsets are published.

The New AutoCAD 2021 software highlights

Commands

Blocks Palette Improvements

View and access your blocks content from AutoCAD on desktop or within the AutoCAD web app.

  • The Blocks palette has been enhanced to provide more convenient access to blocks anytime and anywhere. Use your Autodesk account with a supported cloud storage provider (Box, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive) to get quick and anytime access to your recent blocks and block library drawings.

Revision Cloud Enhancements

Revision clouds are now a distinct ACAD object. They now include a single value for their approximate arc chord lengths, the distance between the endpoints of each arc segment.

Break Objects at a Single Point

With the new BREAKATPOINT command, the Break at Point tool on the ribbon can now be repeated by pressing Enter. This command directly separates a line, arc, or open polyline into two objects at a specified point.

Streamlined Trim and Extend Option

Instead of having to first select boundaries for the Trim and Extend commands, the default Quick mode selects all potential boundaries by default.

Measure Geometry Option: Quick Measure

The Quick option of the MEASUREGEOM command now supports measuring the area and perimeter within a space enclosed by geometric objects in the plan view of a drawing.

Performance and Connectivity

Performance Enhancements

Experience faster save and install times. Leverage multicore processors for smoother orbit, pan, and zoom operations.

  • The speed of panning and zooming in 2D has been enhanced with a technique that takes advantage of objects with similar properties, and another technique that displays appropriate levels of detail at different levels of magnification.
  • When panning and zooming in real-time in 2D, AutoCAD-based products automatically perform regeneration operations as needed. Normally, this operation is not noticeable except in very large drawings. In those cases, you might want to turn off the RTREGENAUTO system variable to prevent automatic regeneration.
  • When working with 3D models, navigation generates higher or lower fidelity graphical representations of the 3D geometry in some circumstances. The program’s responsiveness when using 3D orbit, pan, and zoom operations has improved significantly by making use of multi-core processors. This improvement is most noticeable on complex 3D models using visual styles that render curved surfaces.

Cloud Storage Connectivity

Access any DWG file in AutoCAD with Autodesk’s cloud, as well as with leading cloud storage providers. Support for Google Drive is new. One Drive, Dropbox, and Box are supported.

More and Better Compares

Drawing History Compare

Compare past and present versions of a drawing and see the evolution of your work.

Enhanced DWG Compare

Compare two versions of a drawing without leaving your current window.

Xref Compare

See the changes made to your current drawing from changed external references (Xrefs).

Is it time to go Beyond the Basics? AutoCAD

First of all, why do you need to go beyond the basics?

You’ve probably been using for AutoCAD for longer than some employees in your business have been alive. You may be getting stuck on the same problem with no knowledge of how to solve the issue? Or you may just be looking to make what you do currently quicker, easier and more effective. Whatever the reason might be continuous learning and skill updates are essential.

Continuous Learning the Facts

Eighty-three percent of executives consider it to be important or very important. Companies that offer comprehensive training programs have 218% higher income per employee than companies without formalized training. But it doesn’t stop there.

Companies enjoy a 24% higher profit margin than those who spend less on training.

 Association for Talent Development

 

It would seem that continuing to invest in training and development, even when there are economic downturns, is the smart play.

So what does the AutoCAD Beyond the Basics Training teach you?

This AutoCAD Beyond the Basics training course is designed for those using AutoCAD with a Windows operating system to create, modify and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software, using efficient and effective tools.

The AutoCAD Beyond the Basics course continues on from the topics covered in the AutoCAD Essentials training course. For example, the training will go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block, to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template.

AutoCAD Beyond the Basics Training

*this offer is only available for this date.
