Skill Level Beginner
So now that you've finished this course, you may be looking for some other resources to help expand your knowledge. I'd like to direct you to the sample project that comes with the full version of Revit. Revit LT also has a sample project but it's not this one, so, this sample project is only available for the full version. And you can get to it by going to by going to the big R, highlighting Open And clicking sample files right here. And then, the name of this file is just called the r-a-c basic sample project. And i have it open here on screen. And, that's included with full version, as I said. This is a really handy little project.
It has these little icons here, floating around in the various views called help links. And I'm going to zoom in on this. Schedule right here, which has a complete list of all those help links. And basically the way this works is when you click on one of these little icons, over here on the properties pallet, it'll have a learning link. So for example let's look at the very first one here, add levels to a project in the east elevation. So I'm going to open up the east elevation. And there's some learning links here. And if you click over here there would be a small browser icon and that will take you out to the wiki help and outer desk website, explain that feature, tell you the steps that are involved to use that feature and so on.
As you complete each of these learning links you can check the little box here. And when you do so, if you go back to that original schedule. It will begin telling you which ones you've reviewed, so you can see here that one of those now says yes, and when all the revieweds change from no to yes, then you know you've completed going through the whole project. So there's a lot of really good information in here, so you definitely might want to check that out, and you already have that available to you, so it's right there. In addition to that, there are plenty of online an offline resources. The most obvious online resource that you have available to you is the lynda.com library.
I would encourage you to check out Revit Essential Training next. That's the full Revit Essential's course that goes into much more detail on many of the topics that we've talked about here and many other topics as well. We have several other Revit courses. We have the Revit Family Editor; we have a Revit rendering. So, feel free to check all those out. And then, just explore; do a Google search. Check out my website, paulaubin.com. And, have fun learning Revit.
