I work for a full service office that is getting ready to switch to Revit from ADT 2004. Should I look at integrating Building systems 2006 for the MEP package or use Revit as a drafting tool and convert my details and customize the heck out it until the MEP package is available.

How urgent is your timeline? Revit Systems is tagged to be released around April 2006. Thats only 6 months from now.

Revit as a drafting tool is slow - look forward to a fun three months!  My firm is looking at using Revit as a drafting tool only for the mechanical rooms of a project.  The catch is that someone in your firm will have to spend time creating "families" - equipment cuts that are not only 3D, but have duct, piping, electrical connections, fan data... etc etc as basic or detailed as you like.  This takes time and the family editor doesn't seem to be a very powerful 3D drafting tool (complex geometries are very tough to create).

A lot has changed since my post in November 2005. I have put a lot of time into building families, learning what Revit can and can't well.  our mechanical department will be moving 100% Revit at the end of the month.  The power of the family editor is quite amazing when you start to get the full range of what can be accomplished.   The automated routing and sizing is still a few releases away from being what has the potential to be.  I have several jobs under my belt now with plumbing, fire protection and mechanical.   If the program sized everything properly and had every feature we wanted why would our companies need designers.
