I was just informed we will be using Revit to do smaller projects (residential) but we will use lines, text and 2d elements to produce drawings. No 3d modeling will occur, no parametric families or tags, no schedules so on so forth. 

Anyone else do this kind of work using Revit?  I feel my Autodesk training on BIM is being tossed out the window.

I found Revit to be far easier to 'draft' with than AutoCAD but why would you give up all of the advantages of Revit?  During the transition to Rervit, this might occur on a limited level but the ultimate goal should be to use all of the Revit tools.

I agree and I wouldnt classify this as a transiiton.  We have had revit for 8 years and the powers that be have seen all of the bells and whistles.  Unfortunately seems smaller projects never make money in Revit if modelled with all the parametric familes.  We have autocad and those residential and small projects were done in that platform.  The ultimate goal is to model large projects and draft small ones just all in revit.  Most if not all residential clients do not work in revit nor do they request a model from us.

I am not in support of this new direction.  Seems counterproductive and allows for the old ways to continue on instead of trying to adapt.

Even if you don't want to completely model, why would you not at least use Revit walls / doors / windows for plans and the base for elevations?

It sounds like some tried to model too heavy all the time and no, that is not necessary on something like a residential project.

I have used the buying a Ferrari and then having the engine removed and replaced with a prius.

I was just checking to see if there was some new trend going on that I was unaware of.
