i would imagine just about everyone on this site bought Revit or Upgraded form Autocad/ADT they had all kinds of promotions the Autocad Revit series was quite popular, but the two programs are co-dependent under that arrangement i think, which i didn't like i took advantage of the "Revit It Up" promotion where you were able to keep your Autocad/ADT license as a independent license and get Revit + Subscription for about 1/3 the cost of Revit alone. now i wish they would do a multi-year Subscription renewal plan, about 5-years, no re-fund at a reduce rate Post edited on 2006-05-07 06:56:52

The reason that I asked is because it cost $4500 and I'm not paying that much for it. I use it on my job. I am the only one that is using it. Everyone else is using Autocad. I want to buy it for my computer but it cost to much.

If you are working for someone they would probably buy it if they see its value. If you are working alone, as I am, then buy your own subscription. It should pay for itself in the first year, or first job.

you can export the license and you use it between home and work also check eBay, someone may be selling unused or no longer needed licenses Post edited on 2006-05-07 08:14:22

if this helps any... if u are a student either in highschool or college or tech school... u can get revit for $495.00.... www.campustech.com... how i got mine... Yes, it is the student version / but at school we use the prof. version. Only difference I discoverd is the printing.... student version has "produced by autodesk eduational product" or something like that.

But remember, if you buy the student version of Revit 9.0, you DO NOT get upgrades. When Revit 10.0 comes out in the spring of 2007, you will need to buy that student version again if you want to keep up. Versions are not backwards compatibile, and most everyone is on subscription and upgrades regularly. If you continue to use Revit 9.0 student version, sites like this will have users mostly using 10.0 next year, and they will not be able to share families with you.

I know that... I only have 8.1... but its enough to do what I need to do... It might be in my middle year of college before I buy a newer version, maybe autodesk will have something better.

If I keep the copy of Revit that my teachers has and load it on my computer will there be a problem? Will I have to register it if I have the serial number and stuff?

some companys have laws... and license agreements.. if you do something conflicts with that then you could be fined. its like getting the program for free.. but if you are caught..then you pay for your consequences.

Hey Coreed, you might want to talk to your local AutoDesk Reseller. I'm the Revit reseller ( as well as other BSD AutoDesk products) for Alaska and we offer our customers multi year subscriptions with 5% off for a 2 year and 10% off for a 3 year subscription.. There's also a promotion this Summer called Revit up for Summer that might interest some of you using ADT and wanting to get Revit. Basically, you can get Revit for $1,495srp plus subscription of about $725 and STILL keep your original ADT license. Both have to be on subscription and BOTH have to be on the same computer though.. As for "taking" a license home, and then back to work, you might want to check out the EULA a little closer.. Post edited on 2006-05-10 02:57:28
