Hi there,

I am seeking advice on which is the " best version" to start with.

From my understanding Revit does not offer the possibility to switch from one version to the other which makes the file only compatible to one specific version of the software.

You can upgrade the file from and older version to the newest but you can downgrade it back.

Now we are in 2019 at the moment, I was planning to get started using Revit 2018 will that be good enough?

Should I start on Revit 2019 or even wait for new release 2020?

Start wherever you want.  All older families and files can be used in your version but as you indicate, you can never go backwards.  That means you and your consultants have to communicate ahead of time to determine which issue the project will be in.


In our office, i maintained several different libraries of families, one for each Revit issue.  We always upgraded to the latest release after the second revision of that release to avoid software problems.
