I am a general contractor and as part of our business I design build residential additions. I've been using CADSOFT Build for about 12 years or so. It has an autocad engine and is similar to autocad architectural. I'm very close to switching to Revit and wondered what others thought about subscription versus purchase. I have always updated my software with each revision.

In my opinion subscription is the only way to go. You always get to upgrade to the newest release and you also get access to other support.

thanks, seems to make sense. On average how much do subscriptions increase each year?

one othe thing to keep in mind is network v standalone licience.

both have plus and minus, but in general if there are more than 25 users i would recomend network. If you set up the options file right you can get away with a lot less liciences than the number of users. in our office we have 100 fairly heavey users and 20+ plus users who us it for a few minutes a day. We only have 70 liciences and are never short of licences.
