In this video, Shaun Bryant concludes the course and talks about your next steps.
- [Instructor] We've now come to the end…of our AutoCAD Preparing AutoCAD Drawings for Revit course.…And we've come a long, long way…just from that AutoCAD 2D drawing.…We've actually started developing…a Revit BIM model from that linked CAD drawing…that we developed and tweaked and optimized,…ready to bring into our Revit model.…So, what I've done is I've saved a final Revit file,…10_OFFICE.rvt.…You can see the name at the top of the screen there,…and that's your final finished article, so to speak.…
So, you can download that from the website…and obviously work from that…and start to develop that even further if you wish.…There is also a linked CAD file.…So, I jump to the Insert tab here…and go to Manage Links.…And if I go to CAD Formats,…you can see that we've also got…a 10_OFFICE_ReceptionArea drawing.…Again, you can download that from the website…and use it accordingly to work on further after this course.…So, I'll just cancel the dialog there.…As I said, we've come a long, long way…just from that 2D AutoCAD file.…
