Overall Satisfaction with Revit
- Revit is used by our architectural design team to create an optimum model that all departments and trades can use to complete their work like structural team uses for load and stability of the structure, MEP department uses for pressure and electrical appliances fitting, estimation department and management department uses these architectural drawings for the purpose of evaluating cost and managing schedule.
- we generally used revit for various purposes but some of them are very useful for cut down our precious time
- (a) templates which can I used from its predefined library so that my time gets reduced so much in arranging doors, windows and others furniture in no time and you can also render it at any time
- (b)revit is it works on different layout level like you can create a series of sub layout in it and can see their effect combinedly after creating individually for example: if you creates some structure in first layout section then you can see it in 3D and in any elevation also without creating in other levels so it will make my job faster
- (c) we generally solve problems which I faced using the same file by different architects on the same worksheet making it best fit to customer
- Determining the cost of the material you are using in your structural project after selecting your wall and paint you are using in your structure, AutoCAD - Quantity take-offs are now byproducts of the building model so that you can find the optimum cost of your project
- Rendring is the second best thing that REVIT can provide in such a convenient way without lagging the system so that we can show a realistic view to our clients of what we want to serve them.
- For the fresher it will provide complete guidance if you are a student you can make your free account and learn from their video tutorial so that you can learn their all features customization in lesser time
- You cant save a file to lower versions of the software i.e A Revit 2017 file can only be opened in Revit version 2017 or higher. That file cannot be opened in Revit 2015 software. Backwards compatibility would be great to have, just like some other Autodesk products example AutoCAD.
- Rendering is also good but missing DYNAMIC RENDERING as it posses in some others software of its domain like in LUMION pro
- In my view it has also some price high so it gets not as much popularity it should be
- It must possess some troubleshooter option if someone failed to load its library of items then it will reinstall automatically without showing any error as I think most of the users suffers this problem which primarily not having a Revit experience
- Revit has a great ROI because it has all those functions that should be in a Architectural software
- Is it capable of drawing most MEP and Arch aspects of a building such that all equipment, materials and fittings are in the model. Ready to be specified, detailed, costed and programmed, so any industry is ready to use this product for solving his issues .
- Negative impact of revit is extremely hardware gluttonous i.e, Lots of RAM, lots of CPU (especially single thread), storage and network needs to be extremely fast, and not to forget graphics. The average computer tends to be too inferior to handle Revit on something more intense than a small house. Some entry level stuff won’t even open the program - before you’ve even drawn anything.
I'd say the advantages on the side of Revit is
- Huge demand in the market
- strong development platform (lots of add-ins),
- widely supported (courses, books, tutorials, support)
Do you think Revit delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Revit's feature set?
Did Revit live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Revit go as expected?
Would you buy Revit again?
- It does also allow for some means of previewing a building during design. Effectively a virtual prototype. To show appearance and functionality. Things like 3d views help people who can’t imagine a physical shape from just orthogonal views to see problems and solutions. Things like rendering and walkthroughs (like with the enscape addon) also help to show an impression of the final building to more easily explain to a client what they’re going to get.
- It’s able to handle multiple people drawing on the same model at any one time. Its method of allowing this is to “check out” elements through its borrowing functionality in the worksets. This has its own issues though, e.g. if you’re drawing a wall that wants to attach to another which someone else has “checked out” there’s a fail message and both parties need to synchronize their models (effectively saving and reloading).
- In REVIT you should have a backup copy of your model because that very same person who deleted it didn’t even notice the stuff they also deleted - it wasn’t displayed in their drawing. They’ve saved the file and there’s now no longer an “undo” function.
- Its method of reusing fully complete model portions (groups) is a complete waste of time. They keep breaking, they never work as expected, and can cause such frustration as to induce screen abuse.
