More about the Ribbon Bar in Revit 2010, Changes, Classes, More Changes.


Just digging a little more into the software and it gets better by the keystroke.

I just discovered that you can right click on an item in the ribbon toolbar and it gets added to the top left of your favorites menu.

By the way, I don't know if this is just in Revit Structure, but when I went to move the structural loading, an X/Y/Z indicator popped up in the bottom left of the screen. Click the photo to enlarge and see it. Was that in Structure 2009?

All in all, the ribbon is better and more productive. I was at a client today working on Revit 2008 and it was painful to work with. I had to show him rendering in Accurender? Remember that little program? I don't remember hearing anyone complaining about Mental Ray being added to Revit last year and the changes that brought.

WE WILL BE OFFERING A WEB BASED CLASS ON USING THE RIBBON TOOLBAR BEFORE THE SHIP DATE.
If you are interested, you can sign up at this link. As soon as we can legally teach the web-based class, we will email you with dates. I really want everyone to not lose a second of productivity with the new ribbon. I think it really is much more productive than the current system.
I'm seeing some griping on the AUGI forum about it.

Here's the irony. All of you Revit users are the foundation of change. You've adopted and embraced Revit and BIM. Can you really complain about any changes to the software? You are the changers. You are the future of the AEC industry. Funny how it all plays out and what changes we're willing to accept, embrace or shun.

So, to summarize:
1. Ribbon good.
2. AutoCAD bad.
3. Revit great.
4. Revit3D providing classes in:
5. 2010 Massing Tool
6. 2010 Ribbon
7. 2010 Family Editor
8. We will create custom classes in any other feature you want or need for 2010. Link
9. Have a nice weekend
