At the end of last year I was asked by Mohamed Khettab (the founder of rvthub.com) to do an interview for their ‘Member of the Month’ section. This was a great honor to me as they have only just launched this month, meaning I’m the very first Member of the Month!
rvthub.com is a Social Network for Revit users. It’s a great place to share knowledge, get help, share exciting projects and connect with like minded Revit users from around the globe. I encourage everyone to sign up and get involved!

Soon after I needed to get back into work and I luckily scored a role as a Junior Structural Draftsman at Thorburn Consultants. It was here that I learned a lot about the profession of drafting from some really knowledgeable “old school” guys (guys who remember drafting with pen and paper!). Thorburn Consultants were also relatively early adopters of BIM and Revit so I began using Revit in 2008.

Can you tell us why and when you became interested in Revit ?
I began using Revit in 2008 and was immediately impressed. Drafting in AutoCAD can become tedious after a while, and especially when I was a Junior Draftsman I couldn’t really understand what I was drawing – I was just blindly copying Engineers sketches. I found when using Revit, you’re….[continue]
