About Revit

Revit is a building information modelling (BIM) software that helps constructions companies, structural engineers, architects and mechanical, engineering and plumbing (MEP) service providers manage designing, 3D visualization, analysis and other construction operations.

Revit includes communication management tools, which lets teams share files, simultaneously work on projects and add notes or annotations on designs in a shared workspace to facilitate collaboration across multiple departments. Features include process design and documentation, 2D sheets import/export, construction coordination, fabrication management and more. Additionally, engineers can generate a variety of model-based designs such as elevations, floor plans and 3D views.

Future is here

BIM will certainly change the construction industry in ways we cannot fully appreciate yet. Revit is of the best solutions that are pushing this revolution forward.

Pros

- Game-changing and full-featured building BIM design software (Building Information Modeling) - Simplified the design process beyond belief from the days of AutoCAD - Quantity take-offs are now byproducts of the building model, not a separate business process. - With BIM (Not only Revit) the plans, sections and quantity take-offs are all dynamically related. Any change to one of them is immediately reflected on the others - Works well for Architectural, Structural, HVAC, and MEP modeling. - Easy to use yet very capable. - Seamless integration with other Autodesk solutions (NavisWorsk, Robot .. etc.) - Plenty of training resources online.

Cons

- The price is too steep for companies in developing countries especially since it uses an annual subscription for each user.

Reasons for Switching to Revit

I still use AutoCAD for sketching but for anything new which matters, Revit is the way forward. BIM is the way forward and after using Revit for 5 minutes anyone would realize that.

Solid software

We have 6 licenses, a mix o Revit LT and Revit. With Revit we are able to save time by creating a 3d models along with flat drawings. Basic views (in Revit LT) with reliastic materials are ok to present to our clients. In complete Revit (sans LT) you can do realistic renderings. Thats a great advantage to be able to use one software instead of 3.

Pros

Quite intuititive. A lot of options to create ready to use templates. Realistic views of ongoing project. If something is missing you can create it with ease. Basic programing haleps to create parametric obejcts.

Cons

Requires company to create its own libraries of object. Built in libraries are beyond horrible. Fine tuning takes time. Pesky errors (dimension line lost reference and it will not tell which)

Reasons for Switching to Revit

Revit has more in built features and is easier to use

Best 3D modeling software i ever used

Revit helps me to draw 3D visualized models of house plans. Specially for civil engineers, this software is one of the best visualizing software which can freely downloaded form internet. Very user friendly & attractive software. I highly recommend this software for civil engineers.

Pros

Revit can easily download from internet. It can use to draw 2D or 3D visualized models. Revit having user friendly interface. Best thing is it having lot of templates which are suitable for our designs. Also we can easily add other features like reinforcement data & material data easily without any other third party software. If you are a good engineering designer , you can use revit to enhance your abilities with the aid of this software.

Cons

Revit use considerable storage usage for install to your computer. Also it uses some amount of memory of computer. So that if you have older version computer, you may feel uncomfortable sometimes.

Hard to use electrically

Overall Revit is a great program that is an essential tool in the MEP industry. Any time I start a new project I hope that the arch is using Revit over autocad

Pros

Overall revit has alot of good features for integrating engineering systems with a project. having families link between arch/mech/plbg/fp/elec models and have parameters that interact with each other helps to maintain consistent coordination.

Cons

Electrically revit seems to lag behind quite a bit. Lighting design is still quite difficult to implement in a model. Quite frequently electrically you have to work against revit to get the proper info to show up which can be frustrating. i hope new systems to help display lighting controls are implemented.

Revit is Great, but pricey

For architecture, Can’t beat it, but I in occasionally find the need to return to Inventor for things Revit can’t do.

Pros

We deal with Rails on a weekly basis. And this software has modifiable rail and rail systems as well as stair systems. I think that Awsome. Creating a home mockup for visual purposes for clients takes less than an hour. Love it.

Cons

I absolute loathe that for how advanced the software is to build a home, it stinks to be able to make components. You can’t treat families as components. The ability’s to customize them just aren’t there, it wasn’t what Revit was made for, although I wish it would.

Reasons for Choosing Revit

Revit BIM abilities were advanced. And manufacturers are marketing 3D BIM products downloadable to Revit. Makes drafting that much faster if I don’t have to design a part!

Reasons for Switching to Revit

I need to be able to 3D a home quickly, and I couldn’t do that easily with AutoCad.
