The Revit Saver's Compiled List of Learning Resources

As a student and mechanical design professional I simply can't express how important it is to have a list of learning resources. Before I start to learn any new piece of software I always begin compiling a list. My list exists within my internet browser as a series of organized bookmarks. I make sure that I am logged in on any device I use, for utilization of this list, and it makes it that much easier to stay connected with whats up to date.

More recently I have began blogging. Blogging allows me to have a feed of other people that are keeping Revit Users like myself up to date. This list is also an excellent resource, and allows me to stay up to date as these individual post all of this content.

One important thing to note about this list is that it is constantly evolving. Much like the individual that is learning Revit. In order to go above and beyond you have to continue to learn! This mentality will help you evolve your Revit skills and learn things that simply would be impossible to learn without staying up to date with the technology!

Here is a look at some of my current resources that help me stay up to date with Revit.

Linked In
1.) Linked In "Revit Users" group is a great resource to stay up to date. Brian Meyers started this blog, and has helped over 70,000 Revit Users stay connected in an open forum of questions and learning material. If you have a question about Revit, it's very likely that it's been asked or addressed in this forum.

2.) YouTube Subscriptions are an excellent way to stay up to date with what is online. More recently I have come across Jeremy Roh's Learning Resources. Jeremy Roh is a professor at the Univesity North Carolina - Charlotte, and his classes are all posted online. He has over four years of classes posted online. These lessons are simply priceless. I have found that starting in his BIM Methods Fall 2014 class and then continuing to his Computational Design Spring 2015 lecture series to be the most worth while.

The Revit Saver's YouTube Subscriptions

Throughout this list of YouTube Subscriptions I have several videos that I've used to learn Revit. I would suggest following each one! You may find it helpful to answer a lot of the questions I had when I started learning Revit or as I came across a problem.

3.) Revit Blogs

To the right of this blog I have the feed of many blogs I follow. I would highly suggest adding these to your own! It will be easy to stay up to date without having to search for information. This list, as mentioned before, is constantly evolving. My list may be helpful to me, and not as helpful to others. Just keep adding to your list, and keep on learning!

I will add to my blog list as I find more valuable resources!

Have fun and be patient it takes time, but it will pay off!

I'm always looking for new resources too, so feel free to share some of your favorites with me!

Autodesk Classes on Demand

Steven Shell has some remarkable classes on Revit layout and graphics. This is very beneficial to any students or professionals looking to make their graphics pop!

Steve Stafford's Blog

The following is a list of resources from Steve Stafford's Blog. Thank you Steve!

Blog Listing - Revit Focus

Note: I've moved blogs that have not posted in the last 6-12 months farther down the list. A few URL's are not found or not available anymore, I deleted them entirely. If your blog is not on the list just let me know.

An RSS feed will save you a lot of time in the future if you just add these to your feed, you'll see their new post in your updates as they occur instead of remembering to go to them yourself. Happy blog browsing!
