Is AutoCAD Architecture Worth It?

This software always brings out the creative in you. It is always coming to the rescue when I least expect it so I plan on using it furthermore in the future.

Pros

This software comes with tools that allow me to model my buildings in 3D and comes with loads of options on how to create a set of architectural drawings. I can manipulate physical properties with certain parameters and drive the geometry accordingly by changing the value in the properties palette. I can even create door and window schedules based on components that are in the model I'm working on.

Cons

I really wish that AutoCAD (VANILLA) and AutoCAD Architecture were integrated as one sometimes, it would make my life so much easier.

Reasons for choosing AutoCAD Architecture

I knew nothing about the SketchUp software so I went for the more popular choice.

AutoCAD Architecture: The Leader in Architectural Software

My overall experience with AutoCAD Architecture has been a positive one. Once I completed my first concept drawing, I was pleased to see our architect come up with much the same thing, using the same software. A vote of confidence from the industry solidified my impression of the software.

Pros

AutoCAD Architecture provides an easy to use, yet powerful interface for designing homes and other structures. When the time came to do a renovation on our home, I tried several alternatives before settling on AutoCAD Architecture as the most viable option. All of the other software suites lacked the functionality I sought in terms of views, materials control, snapping, dimensioning, and more. I had initially thought I would simply be using plain AutoCAD, but AutoCAD Architecture has enough architectural-specific features that made home design so much easier (standard thicknesses for walls; blocks for windows, appliances, etc.).

Cons

AutoCAD can be a bit overwhelming for the uninitiated/untrained. I had lots of experience with standard AutoCAD as an engineer, but was worried AutoCAD Architecture might be too complex. That concern turned out to be unfounded as there are many helpful teaching videos available online. After a half hour of how-to's, I was up and running without incident.

Reasons for switching to AutoCAD Architecture

The functionality of SketchUp was not what I was looking for--it seemed to be a little too consumer-focused. Not to say that great things can't be modeled with it, just that AutoCAD Architecture has the superior interface and more powerful functionality.

Best Architectural Software Ever

Initially, it was really difficult to help a customer appreciate how his or her project will look like and it took more time to put together sketches in a way that customers can understand. However, with this software, it has become easy to interact with customers about designs they may have in mind. with the help of this software, customers get a better idea as to how their intending projects will look like when finally executed.

Pros

The modification features such as Trim, offset, layers, etc have been very impactful. The software is very easy to use. It turned out that this software has the solutions that my company so desired. hence, its integration into the company was really easy

Cons

I wish you can introduce the ability to import PDF files and either convert or work directly on such files in AutoCAD. I will also be happier if I could import RXF files and work on them. However, my company is happy about what we're accomplishing thus far with this software.

Reasons for switching to AutoCAD Architecture

The traditional method is painstakingly time consuming. This software has made things very easy and simple.

I like it better than Revit

I have been drafting with AutoCAD since 1992, so overall I like most of the changes they have made over the years. Once in while, they change something and I have to put it back the way I like it.

Pros

It's customizable. I can migrate my settings from previous versions and when they change things that worked fine before, I can change it back. I know Revit has it's uses, but for me, it's too time consuming and drafting isn't easy or pretty. Switching between the 2 programs day to day is difficult because they have different thought processes.

Cons

I'm not sure of the price, but my employer is always saying how expensive it is and that they make you get a subscription now to upgrade every time a new version comes out.
