Overall Satisfaction with Revit
Revit is being used by our organization to produce architectural drawings and plans for construction purposes. It also provides clients with a detailed visual representation of their final product. It is currently only being used by the drafting department. However, visual representations are able to be exported into other formats for viewing by engineering personnel. The business problem that Revit addresses is the need for 3D representation of a construction plan to head off any potential problems during construction.
- Re-drafting of existing plans.
- The ability to clash detect and provide solutions to building construction.
- MEP planning.
Revit is purely an architectural design and drafting tool. It is best used at this current time of its development for visualization purposes. It does have features for documentation purposes for building construction however extracting building data and information is not yet fully utilized or streamlined. What Revit does well, and why it was selected is for the construction and building tools and elements, is that it has enabled the creation of a building to be done in a minimal amount of time by qualified staff.
The creation of a building for client approval is where Revit is best suited. Revit is less suited to providing detailed workshop drawings for features within the design that are a part of the construction build. Revit has a standard library and is able to be expanded with online tools from direct manufacturers, enabling a real-time version of what is to be constructed.
