I came here hoping someone would help me out with Revit, and all ive heard are the same things. Oh you need to "spend more money on training" "Its not the softwares fault" its yours... Ive had more help from people giving their products away for free, the only thing ive seen here are salesmen. I guess 5k doesnt buy you that much from this company.

You need training, if you don't want to pay for it there are resources
online for free that will help. There are YouTube videos and self paced
pdf's, some from Autodesk that I think work just fine.

However no matter what you read or learn as long as you insist that Revit
work like any other software than Revit you will not get past your
frustration. No Revit isn't perfect but you have to deal with it as it is
not how you think it should be.

Badmouthing a product isn't a good way to ask for help, IMO. It gives the impression that you have already judged the product as lacking and thus any help volunteered would fall on deaf ears. And you are in the wrong place; there are groups explicitly for Revit both here, AUGI, and elsewhere where you can get very specific help.

So then why dont you train me, and pay my $2400 round trip ticket to go get training. This product is costing more money than the time its supposed to save.

What exactly does it say to you, really? that they made a sound business
decision?

And yes it is what every company does. Anytime a company hires someone for
their knowledge or experience. It is the exact same thing on different
scales. Buying a company preserves not only the knowledge and experience of
the individuals (which is what you get by hiring someone) but of the
institution something that could take a decade or more to reproduce from
scratch

Really do a google search before complaining you would have to fly
somewhere.

perhaps, but I do think that this product really is over priced and over rated. I think that instead of putting real innovative thinking into Revit, it was over designed, cluttered, and confusing. It does alot, yet most PCs cant even handle the 50+mb files you end up with. If there are little areas to be impressed about, its overshadowed by all the hoops needed to jump through just to get your drawing right. If you think Im just rambling off, ive been counting the amount of mouse clicks it takes to do a certain task, between Revit release 2009 and 2010, and the amount of clicks has nearly doubled. What does that say about evolution? If the steering wheel was a way to relieve carpal tunnel sufferers, then someone really wasnt paying attention to the soup. Im not impressed. If anything release 2009 was alot easier to use. I know the shareware community will come out with a series of products that will be completely affordable if not free, that will be revolutionary to the way we do what we do, and im cheering them on.
