Overall Satisfaction with Revit

Revit is used by our firm to generate drawings and renderings for a client as they have hired us to design their building. This program allows us to keep all of our drawings in one file while allowing us to link in consultant models so that we can coordinate design issues.
  • Revit's organization abilities are second to none as we are able to organize a set of drawings a particular way.
  • Revit also allows us to work in 3D so we can really analyze problems that originate with in the design community.
  • I think Revit causes the designer to lose some design intent based on the rigid drawings components that don't offer much flexibility.
  • Revit also creates a file size problem, the more detail you add, the more complex your model becomes and thus creating a slower model.
  • Revit is a great ROI because it is basically an all in one program. The industry will move toward this program until CAD becomes obsolete.
  • There haven't been any negatives as the interns we hire continue to get better and better at Revit.
I don't think there are any other alternatives to Revit as it does what multiple programs do in one. This allows us to have one license to do all of our drawings, coordination, and planning. It really is a program that you only need to use when designing in the architecture world.
Revit is well suited during the construction document phase as you are generally coordinating with other industries such as mechanical, electrical and plumbing. We are able to link in their models so that we can see where we have clashes. I think it is less appropriate at the beginning programming and layout phases.
