Revit is just curse. Revit is blocking me from creating nice buildings. Revit is far from BIM and I hate go to work because of

this piece of curse.

-It gets in the way of my creativity and workflow. I fight it, instead of working or acomplishing a wonderful design.

-It took a half hour to delete the mullion.

-I don't want to spend 1 hour modeling the dam* thing, I just want to draw it. I don't want to open 3 phases and 2 models just to put in a dam* door. It's just a dam* door, not a frikkin' jet plane. Please for the love of god. Please. It's just a dam* door.

-It would be nice if you could double click a view to activate it. Just sayin.

 

Hahaha...love the blog....http://revit-sucks.blogspot.se/2011_06_01_archive.html

Sounds like you really aren't sure what you are doing in Revit.  Revit is actually a really great and proven program if you know how to use it correctly.  Not really sure how you created the mullion but if it was in the family then looking there is a good place to start.  On your blog I would have to say your "Revit expert" is probably not an expert at all.  Revit does not delete things, YOU delete them.  If you dimension to an object and then delete the object WHY would the dimensions still be there? Are you dimensioning nothing?  You should take the time to read about families and all of the other HELPFUL articles, tutorials, books etc. before complaining that you don't like Revit.  Revit is only as smart as the person that is using it and that seems to be the problem in your case.  There are multiple other USER errors that I can see from you blog but I think the main point is that you need to get yourself educated to the program becasue its not something you learn over night..just like when you first used AutoCAD, you had to LEARN IT! and I would suggest you do that.

What if I want to dimension nothing??? Stupid software pretend to be smart...Archicad is out of the box, Revit is inside the box.

I love to be free.

You are right, if you want to dimension to nothing Revit isn't the right program for you.  Our clients prefer that our dimensions mean something so having dimensions that are actually dimensioning something is more important that trying to dimension space.  This forum is ment to answer questions that arise while working in revit, if you are having a specific problem try putting it in a question on here and I'm willing to get it will get answered.

Let me take a run at this one WW.

 

Wow you're a true dork in all senses of the word.  As in clueless and ignorant. LMAO

 

To delete a curtain wall mullion, 'un-pin' it (that's the big blue pin icon upon selection) an then hit the delete button on the keyboard. Cost to customer 2 cents.

 

Your "REVIT expert" is on crack if he / she doesn't know that. Your REVIT expert actually knows NOTHING and could not be further from an expert. To put it in AutoCAD terms your 'expert' doesn't know how to turn off a layer.

 

Curtain walls and store fronts are an integrated system family driven by 'curtain wall grids'. To simply put a door in, . . . . . . once again 'UN-PIN' the panel, (are you picking this up?) then click it and change it to a curtain wall door from the type selector. Time >  4 seconds, cost to your customer 9 cents.

 

In fact my advise to your customers is to fire you and get a real designer who knows what they are doing. I'd actually be careful and wouldn't want your customers to get a hold of your little rant. Makes you look incompetent.

 

REVIT is not Sketchup or MS Paint. It is a sophisticated 3D parametric Building Information Modeling system. It is extremely powerful and extremely efficient if you take the time to learn it. We use REVIT to design International Airports, Massive Hospitals and Convention Centers. What do you think we all do here for a living ? We use REVIT efficiently and for the most part seemlessly. It appears to me that you do not have the intelligence to learn the product and we like that because it just makes us all look smarter and more valuable.

 

REVIT is not something you play with for a weekend and start into design and documentation.

 

Buddy do yourself some good and get some proper training because whether you think it or not all you're actually accomplishing with your rediculous blog and these silly posts is "MAKING YOURSELF LOOK STUPID". Trust me on that one.

 

* If you want to dimension to nothing draw a reference plane. Cost to customer > 0.1 cents.

revit has a steep learning curve.

 

Deleting a mullion should have taken 1 second.  There's an underlying problem.  Curtain grid lines? 

 

Doors being a problem?  Let me guess--you're trying to put it in a curtain wall. There's an underlying problem.  Curtain grid lines, and replacing the panel of the curtain wall with a door.  should take a second.  There's generally a lot of logic behind why revit makes you do things certain ways.  It may seem arbitrary to a new user, but it makes sense later on when you start to see the power.

Huh. Someone actually took the time to put together a blog to piss and moan about small problems instead of taking

the time to actually figure out the solutions. Takes all kinds, I guess.

I did my firs project in revit along side an autocad version, so I could fall back on the autocad one if the Revit project turned out to be too much for the first run. In about a two day period I had such an amazing presentation with Revit that I never went back...Ive ranted about things in revit too, but its true, if you take time to learn it...really learn it, its fuckin awesome.

It's guys like you that give me job security!  Show up to the RFP with your 2D lines, and I'll show up with an animation and a photorealistic rendering, all connected to my CD's.  Stick with 2D lines cave man, when you're done maybe you can chizel it out on a piece of stone for me.

I learned REVIT at my previous job. When I got layed off and was looking for another job, I got the job because my Boss wanted someone that knew REVIT. We have had potential clients come in to look at drawings, and they keep going back to the 3D renderings of the building we drew for them because they could envision it better than a plain old line drawing, ie. ACAD.... BORING. I will admit that when you first start learning REVIT it can be a bit of a challenge, but after you learn it, it is so much better. If someone can't learn it, maybe they should get an easier job that involves "Would you like fries with that burger" Just sayin.

Well put Keith.

 

Let's start by getting this person a fast food uniform and see if he's capable of placing 1 pickle on each burger without creating a blog on the complexity of it all.

"Now was that 1 pickle or 2" . . . . "Which side of the pickle faces up". . . . "What if I drop the pickle on the floor". . . . "Where do pickles come from anyway" . . .
