Hi all,

I was just wondering how many Revit users are taking projects from start to finish within the application? And if so, what type/size are the projects? The policy at my current place of work (3 months) is all new jobs start in Revit. I have also taken parts of existing projects into Revit to re-work or develop. I have lot of experience taking residential and/or smaller projects all the way through to CD’s within the application. Currently (in Revit) I’m working on a church/rectory rehab projects that fairly large, and in my last position we had several very large office blocks and tenant fit outs that were completed in Revit. I visit the gallery very often and I never see CD work. I know we all like to look at pretty pictures, but if we want to really sell this application to our 2D Cad users we’ll have to advertise that CD work is possible and I might add more coordinated within Revit. 

Thanks, quiller

personally i think the only purpose of Revit is cd work and we should have gallery section for that purpose only

All my works in Revit are Completed Projects. Smile

I only export to DWG to send to the engineers to make the specialties.

We only have a few people in our office that are fluent in Revit, so only a few of our projects go through to CD's.  For the most part, they are great, but setting up the graphics the first time for CD's took more time than any of us were expecting.  But set it up once and CD's sure are fast.

Check out this link:

It talks about how SOM used Revit to do the Freedom Tower.

One thing to keep in mind is that SOM is the largest firm in America and they are direct with Autodesk which means that they had a team of developers on site to help with any problems and write add on programs to fix or create things otherwise not possible.

I tell this to all who doubt what Revit is capable of. We owe a lot to this project because Autodesk made great improvements to this software because of it.
