    Absolutely loving the Revit course so far. It’s an easy to follow and comprehensive course delivered in easily digestible bite sized pieces. Having picked Revit up in the work place there are many little tips and tricks that I am discovering and it’s great to have such a comprehensive resource available in order to fill in the missing gaps.
    Keep up the great work!

    great course – very clear, steady pace.

    I enjoyed finding out the WHYs of the concepts, command options and methods – really important for a fuller and broader understanding.

    I preferred to read the tutorial of each unit first and then watch the video – helped it go in – much easier. It was a shame when i got to the part of the course where the tutorials are not there yet – the videos are of course, but i liked both together πŸ™‚

    You are to be commended for such a great teaching resource and for such charity – it almost seems cheeky of me to ask for more!!!! πŸ˜€ thanks again.

    Superb course, written and presented in a way and in an order that those of us producing designs would naturally follow. I also value the explanation of concepts within Revit, as opposed to a “Just do it this way” approach. This is a thoroughly enjoyable and more importantly, engaging, course. Just finished Module 4, Unit 10 – Roofs by Footprint. Cannot wait until the subsequent modules and units are ready! Ian you are to be both thanked and congratulated for having the gumption and drive to bother producing such an informative, rich and valuable resource. Well done, indeed. Brilliant!

    Hi there Ian
    I must commend you for an absolutely superb course both in presentation and content .. I have been working with caddie for many years. I am a from South Africa and many of my colleagues had moved on from other cad programmes to Revit and recommended that I should do the same. But you know the drill .. better the devil I know ..
    Fortunately Caddie is not very popular in South Africa these days & when I started having software problems recently it was time to move on and Lo .. Revit to the rescue.
    Absolutely fantastic program.

    • Ian Nichols (verified owner)

      Hi Muhammad,

      Many thanks for your kind Review and message. I’m not really familiar with Caddie, but I am aware that it also has a niche following here in the UK also.

      I can guarantee you 100% that you will not be disappointed with your move to Revit. Also in 2 years from now you will still be learning more ways to utilise it- it really is that powerful.

      Please stick with BIMscape over the coming months and years and I’ll take you on a Revit journey like no other. This is only the beginning!!!

    Hi Ian
    Congratulations on an amazing course. Precise and clear explanations .. excellently presented. I have been involved with Architectural & Building design for over 35 yrs & been using the caddie program for the past 18 yrs & never thought that i would ever want to change programs.
    Came across your presentations via you tube & was really very impressed with everything, signed up for membership & as the saying goes .. the rest is history !!
    Keep up the good work & thank you again for a fantastic experience thus far.

      Many, many thanks for taking the time to leave a Review. It’s always a real pleasure for me to read that the course has helped someone with Revit, especially when it’s someone who has been working with a different platform for so long.

    I started the course today as the result of a recommendation from a colleague. I am very impressed by the organized and structured level of the content and the clarity of the explanations. Previously I have tried learning Revit from a book and watching other individual online videos. So far this is the best I have encountered and I am really looking forward to the remainder.

      Many thanks for the kind words about the course- both in this Review and your recent email. It’s fantastic to be able to share my Revit experience with so many people. Hope you enjoy the software as much as I do!

    G’day again from Australia, Ian

    I signed up for “The Complete Beginners Guide to Autodesk Revit Architecture” a few days ago and have been working diligently through the videos since then.

    For anyone new who chances onto this valuable resource, treasure it and work through the videos by example. Don’t just stare at the screens. See, do, learn.

    Even though I’m only up to Module 4 Unit 12 Stair by Component, I thought it was time I added my praise in here, with all the other very happy customers.

    I’m returning to study Diploma of Building Design after 2 decades’ absence from architecture, building and construction. Finding this wonderful, and free, offer of quality Revit instruction is allowing me to get a strong grip on current day 3D CAD BIM software – before I have to shoot it out with the “young guns” in class next month!

    May the universe share its blessings with you, Ian, for your generosity and Revit capabilities.

    PS If anyone is interested, I’m purchasing the newly released “The Ultimate Guide to Revit Walls” tutorial – on the strength of how empowering the Intro Guide to Revit is for me. Everyone, do likewise. It’s cheap as chips. I know you won’t regret it, not by a long shot!

    • Ian Nichols

      Many, many thanks indeed for the fantastic Review Brent- so pleased you are enjoying the Course. All the best with the Class, when you start it!!!

    Hi Ian,
    Thank you very much for a fantastic course in Revit, I believe it is one of the best courses I ever took, precise, to the point, very informative and was a great pleasure listening to you explaining it. My only regret is that I didn’t find it before I started using Revit as I have to go back and tidy the drawings, but at least I shall be doing it faster and smarter.
    I have already recommended it to my daughter who is an architect and shall carry on recommending it.
    I have not been able to view the last two lectures, module nine units 6 & 7, I have tried several times but without success, I wonder if you can help me.
    Kind regards,
    Hossam Ragab

    • Ian Nichols

      Hi Hossam,

      Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review- it’s very much appreciated. I’m so glad you enjoyed the course and I thank you for recommending it to your daughter! I’d be very interested to hear how she gets on with it to. There are currently no videos for the 2 Units you mention- these Units will (I’m pretty sure) be just in text form- as it’s easier to have it set put in text. These should be available within a matter a few weeks.

      Thanks once again,
      Kind Regards,

    Hi Ian,

    Here’s a little note from The Netherlands.
    In my daily work I am used to modelling in Tekla Structures and SketchUp Pro.
    To get familiar with Revit by your course is really great fun, each time I’m looking forward to the next unit!
    The way you explain the use of the program is just perfect!
    Thank you for doing so!!
    I must admit that at first I was sceptical about Revit, but because of your way of teaching, I’m pretty sure I am gonna use this program in the near future πŸ˜‰

    Thanks again,
    Greetings Henk

      Hi Henk,

      Many thanks indeed for taking the time to leave a comment- it’s very much appreciated indeed. Every single piece of feedback is really important to me as it better informs me as to whether the training material is proving useful / valuable to people- so thanks once again.

      It’s great to hear that you’re feeling more comfortable with Revit. Give it some time- there is a steep learning curve.

      It would be interesting to hear (in due course) how you think it compares to your “Tekla / SketchUp Workflow”?
