Overall Satisfaction with Revit

Revit is being used across my entire firm. We are using it for integrated BIM work with our consultants, mainly engineers, who are also using the program. Revit also allows us to collaboratively work on projects which benefits us greatly on larger projects where multiple people are required to finish the project. This allows our firm to complete projects faster than if we were using other programs and allows designers to work together in real time at their own work stations.
  • Revit allows users to create real buildings and is very much rooted in making functional buildings.
  • Revit allows users to collaborate both within their own firms and with other types of firms as well. This is particularly useful for coordinating buildings between architecture and engineering firms.
  • Revit integrates fairly well with other programs such as AutoCAD and SketchUp. This allows us to bring in elements modeled in other programs into our revit models.
  • The rendering operations are a bit clunky in Revit. For example, moving throughout a scene and getting the correct eye level and perspective set up is very difficult and time consuming.
  • I wish there was more tutorials or explanation for making families. I enjoy how much Revit can do but I feel lost at times trying to understand how to use this tool.
  • Revit allows us as a business to be more efficient and take less time on projects.
  • There is a large learning curve for revit to get new users to learn how to use the program efficiently.
Revit is the fancier version of AutoCAD. It has more features and is much better for fully integrated 3D modeling.
Revit is well suited for creating collaborative projects that are fully integrated into the design and construction document process. We work a lot with engineering firms who also use Revit and the program allows us to fully integrate and coordinate our models together to make sure that everything is correct. I can see where my electrical engineer has placed lighting into the model and same with my mechanical engineer and their HVAC equipment.
