It's been a long time!



I really cant believe it was the 19 March 2013 that I last published an article on Revit Zone. Well, I can believe it actually- I only have to look at the date of the article below this one. So to all readers (both new and old): I am still here and what's more- I'm back with a vengeance!

So if I haven't been posting on Revit Zone, what exactly have I been doing with my time? And why am I back, now? And what's does the future hold for Revit Zone? For the answers to all these, just "read more"


OK. So up until now Revit Zone was a hobby for me. It was something that I developed in my spare time, away from the Day Job. For the last 17 years I have worked for various Local Authorities in the West Midlands, UK. I worked my way up from Architect to Team Leader over that time. For the last ten years I have been working with Revit. And from "day one" I was enthralled with the software. I just felt that it was the future. Little did I know back then just how much the programme would develop!


Unless you have been living under a stone for the last few years, you will have noticed how BIM has gained traction. Revit obviously has an important role in the world of BIM. So what has this to do with me? Well, during the middle of last year, I did a LOT of soul searching and decided to make a decision to follow my passion. So I decided to leave my employment and set up my own company, specialising in BIM Training & Support Services. I have now been self-employed since April this year: And it's GREAT!


So what does this mean for Revit Zone? Well, you'll be glad to hear that it means there will be time for new articles, new tutorials and more discussion on the Forums.


Work is nearly finished on my company website- once it is in a state where I can publicly launch it, I'll post the link on here. The company website will also have free articles and tutorials not only Revit, but also Navisworks, general BIM concepts, etc). I am also launching a YouTube Channel- YES, fully narrated video tutorials are coming soon! But don't worry, if you still prefer to read articles- they'll be coming thick and fast on Revit Zone.


Just before I finish, I'd like to say thanks to the many loyal readers who have stuck around here despite it appearing to be abandoned. Well, quite the opposite! OK, are you ready to really get into Revit?


Kind regards,
