So you've read a few articles, attended a few lunch & learns, or maybe you've been to a conference or two. You've been meaning to make that switch from AutoCAD to Revit but just haven't had the time to invest in learning a new design tool. Well you're in the right place! In this course, Revit for AutoCAD Users, you'll learn how to make the transition from AutoCAD over to Revit. First, you'll explore the Revit user interface. Next, you'll discover how to import DWG files from AutoCAD. Then, you'll learn how to create floor plans and elevations. Finally, you'll learn how to create details and sections. By the end of this course, you'll know how to work with imported CAD files in Revit. Software required: Revit.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Pierre Derenoncourt, and welcome to my course, Revit for AutoCAD Users. I'm an author and curriculum manager here at Pluralsight with over a decade of combined experience using CAD and building information modeling platforms like AutoCAD and Revit. So you've read a few articles, attended a few lunch and learns, and maybe you've been to a conference or two. You've been meaning to make that switch from AutoCAD to Revit but just haven't had the time to invest in learning a new design tool. Well, you're in the right place. This course is designed to help AutoCAD users like you make the transition over to Revit. Some of the major topics will include exploring the Revit user interface, importing DWG files from AutoCAD, creating floor plans and elevations, and also creating sections and details. By the end of this course, you know how to work with imported CAD files in Revit. You'll also be able to create your first set of floor plans, elevations, sections, and even details, and finally, you'll know how to place your views and drawings onto title blocks. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with working in AutoCAD. Some 3D modeling experience is helpful but not required to follow along. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn Revit for AutoCAD users here at Pluralsight.
