AUGIWorld February 2018 -- Helpful advice for beginners

AUGIWorld February 2018

The truth is that we can be beginners, or new users, at any point in our professional lives. For example, AutoCAD pros who have been in the business for decades may find themselves as beginning Revit users facing the same learning curve as their younger counterparts.
