    Are your clients demanding you move from AutoCAD to Revit, but you have no idea where to start? Join our class and learn the essential steps from the award-winning Rockwell Group, which recently started the transition from a Rhino-to-AutoCAD workflow to a Rhino-to-Revit workflow. Get an overview of what it takes to move from CAD to building information modeling (BIM), identify the strengths of your team, and learn what to look for when hiring a BIM manager. We'll also cover the critical building blocks for the conversion, highlighting the Revit template and its key ingredients—families, view templates, view types, and more. Finally, discover the plug-ins that can help boost your productivity, such as Ideate and pyRevit. By the end of the course, you'll be well-equipped to make a successful transition to a Revit workflow.
