You asked for my wish list well here it goes:

Revit needs more of everything residential.  Sloping roof options need to be improved and simplified. I can't ven do a square tower with four gables very easily.  I have to create two through gables and then make four cut openings because the program 'doesn't get it."

Components are dreadfully light on useful items.  I.e. the 1960's slide in range is a nice touch.  How about some 48" and 60" wide ranges by Wolf, Thermador, Dacor, etc.  Sure, I can download some shareware, if available, but it would be nice to just get it with the next version.

Get Kohler working on fixtures. Build in more options for trim / casing.  Windows with simulated divided lite muntin patterns that are parametric and will adjust the number of lites in the grid based on how far the window is stretched.  I could try to do it but, like most architects, I suck at computer programing.  I also don't think it is worth MY time to create something that I think should be part of a basic modeling program.

Have you ever tried to make an elliptical brick solider course arched opening?  Good luck.

I'll get back to you when I have more time to type!

Jim

four sided gable like this?  easy!  Just use slope arrows instead of slope defining lines.

I was going to suggest the same thing about the slope arrows.

 

The brick soldier course has been discussed extensively on AUGI - http://forums.augi.com/search.php?searchid=648217

 

There are also many, many Kohler fixtures located in the download section along with a Wolf gas Range. Granted we don't have nearly as much as AutoCAZD does, but they've had how many years on Revit? Plus you can use all the AutoCAD blocks in your Revit program along with many Max/Viz models which are freely available. 

 

There is NO perfect CAD software. Never will be. If there was, then everyone would be using it now wouldn't they? ADT is close, but even Autodesk realizes it's not going to make it there because it has it's limitations. Otherwise, why would they have bought Revit in the first place?

Thanks guys.

I realize that no CAD software is perfect and that AutoCad has been given a huge head start, but they did ask for suggestions.  So far I am having a good experience with the Revit but somethings that I think should be simple are more difficult then they need to be.

 

Thanks again

As part of my ongoing saga, I would like to continue to suggest the following list of changes.  Take them for what they are worth: 

1.  Site work is very cumbersome and is lacking details that I think would be very helpful.  I'd like to see fences, with some options.  Maybe this can be part of the Wall command?

2.       I'd still like to see a MUCH larger library on standard components.  I spend a great deal of time 'creating' items that I'd rather be 'inserting'.  How hard would it be to include large libraries of components?  It's just data.  It doesn't even affect the programming.  I could see hundreds of moulding, light fixtures, appliances, trees, plumbing fixtures, stair components, etc.

3.       I want to understand 'why' the typical Door insertion doesn't include jambs and why the jambs can't have a property for material selection?  I guess this would apply to other types of openings.

4.       I'd love to see Revit find a window company that would be willing to spend the time to model their windows and have their product included in the software.  I know there is probably marketing and licenses issues that make it difficult to do.  Once you let one company in, where do you draw the line.  Maybe it would be better to simply model the current window inserts around a typical window company so that profiles and options are more sophisticated?  I'd like muntins to be dynamic for casements, picture windows and double hungs and I'd like them modeled (not drawn on.)

5.       Is there anyway to get the roofing command to understand the difference between the interior and exterior of a structure and allow you to select how an eave is constructed?  Let's say I have 2 x 12 rafters but at my eave / overhang, I want exposed 2 x 8's with wood planking in between.  Right now I have to construct two separate roofs and join them together.  I'd kind of like this to be more intuitive.

6.       Can the door routine include and option for hardware where it could be linked to a library of handle types?

7.       Fireplaces?  Currently there is nothing.  I’d like to see fire boxes and possible some modeled flue caps.

8.       I’d love to see a countertop routine that acts like a floor or roof system.  Pick the edge of the cabinet, add and overhang, (possible with a selected edge profile), a desired thickness and material, and let it go!  Holes for sinks and specialty appliances could be handled through and edit command.

Thank you for continuing to listen to my rants.  Happy holidays.  JPrisby

There's a need for a bigger library for Revit Systems! Things as comon as a Pressure Tank or a simple Domestic Toilet are not found in the Mechanical and/or Plumbing families, needless to say about the Electrical Libraies...
