Revit has much more functionality... I've used Chief for 2 years and recently purchased Revit 6.1. Chief is faster for simple projects, the library is larger (I think), and the rendering features are a little bit better in my opinion. Revit blows Chief out of the water as far as customizable objects. You can completely customize just about ANYTHING; not to mention that the windows, walls, doors, stairs, ramps, railings, floors, and objects can be completely built from the ground up. So it depends on your needs. When I started doing small residential projects; Chief was perfect. Very fast and worked great. But when you get into larger residential projects & commercial; you need a more powerful tool. So I bought Revit about 3 months ago and have been very happy with it so far.

Thank you for replying. I have used Revit when it first came out (before AutoDesk bought Revit) and really liked the way Revit was designed and how it functioned. Reason I ask is our office would like to move towards object based CAD software and the two contender's are Revit and Chief. From what I have seen, Chief has some really nice features but when it comes to multiple users working on the same project I wasnt sure if Chief could handle that. I know Revit can with worksets. Also the capability to import AutoCAD and Microstation files as well as exporting to them is a very nice feature that I find our office needing at times. I agree with you that renderings in Chief seem a bit more realistic but in my office that isnt the main purpose of this software so that isnt a major issue. Thanks again!
