You may recall that on the 9th May I posted Revit Structure Services and Support ~ Lack of Content informing you that Skill Builders & Families Guide had no content and I would let you know when something appears.
Something has appeared on the Families Guide page.........
A hyperlink to Release 2009 (Now you get the back to the Future headline ;0)
Click on the hyperlink and you get the screen on the left
Ummm looking at the bottom of the page it's talking about getting started with Revit Architecture and Revit Architecture User Guide.
A quick scroll up to the top of the page and your now in the Revit Architecture Services and Support Page!!!!!
And your in the Past!
And there is still nothing in the Skill Builders area!
Come on Autodesk get your act together.................
I've been participating on Autodesk MyFeedback over the last few years. It’s a method by which you can participate in the development and improving Autodesk products.
Autodesk have just sent an email to participants informing them that the current MyFeedback platform has grown way beyond its originally designed structure and they are looking to introduce a new Autodesk Feedback Community over the next few month.
They are also reorganizing the management of Autodesk betas. Beta projects will be managed individually on this new community by each of the four Autodesk Divisions.
They will be retiring MyFeedback on May 30th 2009, and will be moving future betas to our new Autodesk Feedback Community server.
So instead of complaining about what did not make it in the next version or bugs that are in the program, get on the inside and help find those problems and develop those features before the next version of the program is released! .
Problem is most are Revit Structure 2008......... Boooo Boooo Hiss Hiss
Come on Autodesk, get them up to date and show off Revit using your new User Interface and 2010!
The site says:-
"Get the most out of Revit® Structure with these free tutorials. Each one contains valuable information but is only a few minutes long, so you can watch them as many times as you like. View each tutorial online by clicking on its title." But it would be nice to see the program flown using the new UI
Skill BuildersAutodesk Revit Structure Skill Builders are advanced learning exercises that focus on accomplishing a specific task.
Families GuideA guide that contains conceptual explanations, tutorials, and reference information to help you understand how to work with Revit Structure families.
As you will see from my last few postings I’ve been poking around the Autodesk Revit Structure Services & Support area of the Autodesk web site for information to download.
Looking under the How–to–Articles Menu. I’ve found that although there is a nice description of what should be available there for downloading, there is nothing to be found under either Skill Builders or Families Guide!
Has someone forgotten to upload the information?
Does the information Exist?
Is it coming soon and if so when?
For previous versions of Revit Structure the Getting Started Concrete Project and Getting Started Steel project were also available for download. I have not been able to find these for 2010 anywhere either.
If anyone from Autodesk is looking (and I know you do, because it shows up on my sitemeter information) then please email me with some answers to my observations and questions.
Click on the Image on the left to link to the page where you can download the new 2010 version of Autodesk® Revit® Structure as a standalone and as part of the AutoCAD® Revit® Structure Suite 2010 software.
It is available to registered users of Autodesk Revit Structure 2010 or AutoCAD Revit Structure Suite 2010 software, and is subject to the terms and conditions of the end-user license agreement that appears during installation. . It works for 30 days then can be used as a viewer.
Many commands are repeated over and over as they exist on different ribbon menus. As such, developing a workable list is difficult since duplicate commands can easily get different key assignments as one moves about in a text file with over 1,400 lines.
I was in the process of trying to reformat the original shortcut reference sheet I made for 2008 and had got this far when I saw his posting on his blog.
