    We will share ideas and techniques to help make for a less painful transition from Autodesk AutoCAD® to Revit Architecture® so that others may benefit from our successes and failures. You may have heard that the only way to switch to using Revit is to just dive right in and take the plunge. Well maybe there are options to this “sink or swim” approach. Can you afford to re-train your entire staff? Do you know who should learn (or more importantly, who should not learn) Revit? Well maybe this discussion will help answer some of your questions and address some of your fears. We will share with one another how switching to Revit as affected our office, workflow, staffing and efficiency. We will discuss our biggest successes and failures. We want to hear about any unique ideas or work flows which you have discovered to help make for a successful transition to Revit. Together as a group, let’s share how we all made the switch while putting some common fears and myths to rest.
