I'm trying to decide between Revit and Autocad for our 70-unit shipping container project. I love Revit, but I'm not sure how I'm going to customize all the units. Does anyone have any ideas?

44 shipping containers will be for two and three bedroom apartments, 22 for double-height retail, and 16 for office spaces.

you will work some time, and lose maybe 1 or 2 months of work making all the customization, but if you stay the families parametric as possible... you will save work (work= time, time = more proyect to make= more money).

You can also build multi use families, adding a visibility parameter to each Type. It have its own pro/cons, so you decide... working only once or making the same thing over and over.. to cleanup the final design.

What do you mean by "customize all the units". From what i'm reading i only get 3 types? That being said, ask yourself why would you not use Revit. this would also be great opportunity for the company to advance their family building proceeses. are you actually building a structure from these containers?

Believe me there are at least 20 different container types. I'm thinking of just doing 20 different families because I've got to provide a schedule for the modifications to the shipping container supplier/modification company. So, I'd like to be able to schedule the different shipping container units similar to a door or window schedule with references to their individual elevations and floor plans.

We are using the shipping containers as structural elements. Because of the customization/removal of the steel sidewalls there will be steel tube reinforcement in places.

Hi,

I thought that this information might be useful for your project.

Whilst you are correct in saying that there are many different type of ISO containers, when it comes to container homes we really only use 4 types commonly. 

They are the

Type 1A 20 Ft GP ( general purpose )

Type 1A 20 ft HC( High cube )

Type 1A 40 Ft GP

Type 1A 40 Ft HC

Most designers prefer the extra height of the High Cube ( HC ) Series so that breaks down even further to two types. 

Knowing this might save you a lot of work setting up configurations that will not be used.

There is more information in video presentation format here if youre interested.

Hope this helps.
