Revit is the BIM design tool of choice for the modern world, and its use is growing daily. Unfortunately, too many of us are stuck using out-of-the-box block, styles, families, and construction document output because we don’t know how to effectively set up and navigate the complexities of the Revit template and CAD Standards structures. Are you the CAD manager for a design firm, or looking to step up into that position? Does your firm spend far too much time trying to get your Revit output consistent with your company display standards, or too much time copying components from project to project? If any of those relate to you, then ZenTek Consultants is here to help you build both the CAD Management skills and practical template controls you need to automate and simplify all your projects.
