Download Revit Architecture 2009 Program, Tutorials, Training Files, Familes Guide, Family Training Files, Getting Started Guide, User's Guide

OK, I hope everyone's done installing their copies of Revit and have finished playing around with all of the new features. Did anyone lose any productivity with the new version? I didn't think so. Thank goodness you aren't using AutoCAD with it's completely new and different interface. They'll be spending weeks trying to figure all that out, while you're busy cranking out your renderings with Mental Ray. Raise your hand if you've already done a rendering with Revit Architecture 2009. Now keep your hand raised if you ever did a rendering in AutoCAD. I didn't think so. Yeah, I know...too time consuming.

Well, here's some more stuff to keep your time occupied. Lots of guides and tutorials for 2009 Revit products. Enjoy.....
