I have a small veteran owned drafting business and I need to buy Revit. Where is the best place to get it as Autodesk does not offer military/veteran discounts. If I can get the bundle Revit/AutoCAD/Civil 3D, then I'll go that route. But $2700 is steep at the Autodesk site! Some of the websites that popped up on a Google search didn't show as a trusted site, so we know how that's gonna go. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Legitimate Revit is only available from Autodesk and their authorized resellers.  From anyone else, it is illegal.

You should be able to get it on a month to month basis and as such, it is a cost of doing business, just like your utilities or rent.

BTW - Revit is not drafting so don't consider it to be for that purpose.

I thought Autodesk changed the licensing to more align with Adobe style licensing - that being Revit is now only able to be leased?Personally, I would transfer that leasing cost directly across to your clients if you could.Try contacting your local Autodesk resellers. I found there was a range of offers available as some are bronze/silver/gold level resellers and the higher grade resellers buy it from Autodesk cheaper.If you are in Europe, European licensing permits software licences to be resold. So second hand licenses can be bought. If you buy a slightly older version - say Revit 2017 or 2016, you are still getting a great piece of solftware that fully does the job.Outside of Revit, the only way to obtain Revit second hand legally is to buy a company / practice that owns Revit. You therefore take ownership of all software licenses.I have seen Revit for sale on Gumtree before. I'm not sure if the licensing is legitimate though.

If you are a student, or an educator (teacher) you can use Revit for free. Check the website for details. https://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/revit

There are alternative websites that offer OEM Revit software for far less. Their websites appear to say their products are licensed but I've never used them apologies. I found them by googling "buy revit"There is a watered down version of Revit called Revit Lt that costs less. It has many key features that I personally think are critical to leveraging Revit's diverse range of tools. I would never buy it, but take a look, it may suit your practice.As an alternative, smaller scale practices often use alternative cheaper softwares like ArchiCAD. I have never used ArchiCAD personally and since I work on many large projects I rely on other consultants using revit too and ArchiCAD wouldn't be suitable for that.

Hi.

If you do not want surprises I recommend you buy it in the official Autodesk store (https://www.autodesk.es) although you can get good deals on Amazon.

Luck!

Although you can 'draft' in Revit, and we do when we add detail components to model views or create drafting views, Revit should not be baught by someone that only needs a drafting program.
