I currently have ABS 2006 and am about to upgrade to 2007.
The company I work for is a smaller (10 employees) MEP firm. Everyone is on base AutoCAD except for me. I was able to convince the owners to try one version of ABS so we could see if it would be a benefit.
I have been able to play with it a decent amount, but cannot convince the owners to allow me to attend an ABS training course, Autodesk University, or the like. I am trying to teach myself at this point and am getting the hang of things.
Basically, I am figuring that as with all AutoCAD, the hardest part is getting the company standards set. Once this is done, I believe things should move along much faster.
I finally have a computer at the house that has the ability to run ABS, and am thinking of installing it at home under the trial version and working on tutorials and learning more there(seeing as there is never really time to spend on it at the office).
Have most people on here running ABS taken a course to learn it, or did you have to teach yourself? Also how hard has it been to get your company to implement ABS for the rest of the users?
