We have been using Revit as a AutoCAD alternative to document our projects, but have only scratched the surface of what Revit can do. At Autodesk University 2009 I tried to focus on classes in Conceptual Design, Planning and Urban Design, and visualization to see how we might expand our use of Revit and use it more intelligently.
I think Jim wants to have a lunch-and-learn type thing to share what we learned. Some of the information will probably also get put into the blog by topic. I put some of the information I downloaded here:
K:\Autodesk University Class Data\AU 2009
Here area some of the topics:
Creating and Analyzing Conceptual Massing Geometry With the Revit API
Programming in the API is probably a little too advanced for most of us, but it gives you idea on how information could be brought into Revit from a variety of sources as data and used to drive geometry.
Parts of iRobot, Snakes on a Plane, the Watchmen, X-Men: the Last Stand were modeled in Revit.
Autodesk® Revit® for Urban Design - HOK presented some planning work they have done at a variety of scales. They have a lot of information on their blog.
