Overall Satisfaction with Revit

Revit is being used by the entire team to coordinate on all projects dealing with architects and planners who are using BIM for their CAD. This is being used by most all of the team with the exception of some of the higher level executives. All professions are starting to use Revit as a BIM solution.
  • 3D modeling
  • Solutions for a material schedule
  • Ability for non-designers to see a representation of the building/landscape more easily
  • Still some issues using this with landscape architects
  • Mostly still a building tool
  • The menus can be a little confusing for those coming from AutoCAD
  • Saved a lot of money on out of office 3D renderings
  • Saved costs on material schedules
  • Saved money on labor
We think Revit is hands down the leader in BIM software. It is the one program that most all shops are utilizing these days so it should be the first option you explore. There are other software packages out there but this is really the one that the vast majority of the industry uses and should be really taken seriously.
Revit is specifically well suited for the construction documents phase of a project but can be used across all phases from design to implementation. This is also great for presenting to clients with well formed 3D models of an overall project. We would highly recommend this to any firm looking for BIM software.
