AUGIWorld February 2012
Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu is credited with saying, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." While those new to various Autodesk products likely won't have to travel a thousand miles to reach proficiency with the software, they will have to take that initial step.
The February 2012 issue of AUGIWorld features several articles targeted to users who are beginning the journey.
Edwin Prakoso helps beginners avoid developing bad habits at the outset in "Four Simple Rules for Drawing with AutoCAD." In "Revit Structure Basics You Never Learned," Desiree Mackey offers sound advice for new users or the veteran professionals who are charged with training new users. Elisa de Dios discusses "Things to Remember as a Revit Beginner," by sharing some of what she learned on her own path to proficiency.
