VonVan, Let me explain my background. I work for a local reseller in Colorado. That stated let me say that there are pluses and minused to both software. I have ppl who love Revit and other who swear by ADT. Personally I have come from the background of AutoCAD also and my thought is Revit (although most think with an ACAD background it should be ADT). I like the interface better and the fact that it is bidirectional which ADT is not. Although Autodesk has had ADT longer and worked on it more so there are a more features in it then Revit. That aside Autodesk is full blown into Revit and are developing it fast. Some parts of it are ahead of ADT others lag behind but I think in release 9 or 10 it will exceed ADT, but of cource that is just my opinion. Since you are here I would assume something in Revit caught your attention. You may try the 30 day trial download from to see more of it. Dont want to take up to much space. Mack

Hello I am an Architectural Draftperson in Sydney & I have been trained & used; ADT Revit & used AutoCAD from R11, initally ADT is my first though due to commands similar & using autocad background but Autodesk will be fazing out ADT, Autocad to push REVIT, Revit is smarter & pretty, but there is a cost- Hard ware min Igb RAM fast CPU for rendereing, dual screens for working in plan & viewing in 3d. I am using Revit not with acad 2005. I just completed a dual occupancy (two homes attached up to presintation & council lodgement), the Revit file is currentlly 27.5mb with 4 backups the same size. it took me a little while to get my head around Revit, (depends on person) I like Revit alot, when using acad I miss the smart features Revit has. Revit has alot to grow & has only just started, Acad is over 20years old in softwar terms thats old. Revit can be costomised to use short cuts on key board. if I had to choose now that I am ok with Revit I will use Revit. hope this helps. Chris
