I'm a student of architecture and I use REVIT on quite a regular basis at university. Using REVIT has made me aware of a whole new area of digital design software I never knew existed. Parametric design software can be argued to be an invaluable tool in many architectural practices throughout the world by many architects, and others may say that they feel restricted by this approach. The point of this post is that I'm currently studying the usage of such software for a university project and I'd like to get the opinions of industry professionals about how they feel that this digital design approach has benefited (or in some cases, restricted) them and their practice. If you could spare 15-20 mins of your time and help me out by completing an online survey I've developed in order to gather some professional opinions on the subject, I'd be more than grateful! Even if you can only spare 5 mins of your time and fill out half of the survey, I'd be very happy since this type of information is like gold dust to me. If you only fill out part of the survey, please do click through to the end to make sure it submits your answers! Complete the survey here: http://www.deadpencil.com/questionnaire/ Thanks in advance for any input you offer me

Can I participle in this survey even I am not an architect? cause you mentioned pro architects... Really Iike to see some of the findings in your assignments/ thesis once it is done..same with Mr. Spot...(considering post-graduated study again, if it really going to happen in the future!) However, What I really like to see are more inputs from other architects/ designers practices which are yet to shift to BIM and what is they thoughts about their current practices...and are they thinking of shifting to BIM? Properly posting your survey in AUGI's Autocad Forum/ ADT forum and Revit forum would help too.

Not trying to crash your study, but when you post the exact same message on another software's forum, but replace the name of the software in your text, it will start to lessen your credibility. So are you truely a Revit user, or an ArchiCAD user? The best advice I can give you is to go see Phil Bernstein's "Vision Tour", or get the Revit 7.0 "Trial" CD, which comes with some bonus materials. Part of the bonus materials is a condensed video of the Vision Tour. Phil is VP of Building Solutions at Autodesk, and has a very compeeling concept of what BIM means for the future of our profession.

Quoting Scott Davis - 2005-04-13 23:22:27

"So are you truely a Revit user, or an ArchiCAD user?"



I honestly use both pieces of software. We are actively encouraged not to be reliant upon a specific software when designing our buildings since the software is purely a design tool.
By having access to more than one tool which does the same type of thing, it personally helps me to feel like I could work on any platform since I've learnt the common factors between both tools and these could be applied anywhere.

Many people are studying BIM/Digital Design at the moment and I believe that this in itself shows that there is an active interest among current students in the principles of this technique. With all of our students being introduced to these ideas that software can be used to help design structure, it can only mean that it's going to become more a popular technique in the future.

Of course you may take part in the survey. The questions are tailored to architects currently in practice so there may be some questions you cannot complete, but I'm sure that you may have some valid points or ideas to raise on the questions you can answer.
