I've taught this class many times, and it's actually up to 82 tips-but 60 in 60 sounds better. This fast-paced class is designed to give productivity tips to help users improve their modeling and documentation speed. Tips range from simple ones, like using the tab key and the chain selects, to more complicated ones, like selective use of the properties in view templates and modeling sloped topography. There's intentionally no use of tools like Dynamo or other plug-ins; this is about being as productive and efficient as possible with the native Revit software. The other benefit of this class is that most people attending Autodesk University will be asked to show what they learned to justify attendance. This handout and the YouTube video that will accompany it will satisfy those queries and provide firms with some tangible productivity increase.

I have been working in the architectural industry since 2002 and with Revit since version 8 (2005), I have worked on Revit projects from $50k-$900Million and have been responsible for BIM projects up to LOD 500, 4D and 5D. Additionally, I have completed multiple practice Revit implementations and the training of over 200 users. With a broad range of experience on different types of projects, I'm always trying to implement new technology to enable higher productivity. I'm currently working on 3D printing, VR and real-time graphics engines, real-time collaboration, reality capture using photogrammetry/drone scanning and analytics for architecture.
