Hi,

Our firms is working for the first time using Revit. We are in the process to figure out how is the best way to handle the consultants, especially when they are using Revit. The way I see it, consultants using autoCAD are not the problem because we will just export our Revit drawings in to AutoCAD and e-transmit our background to them. In that case, the consultants are doing their job of analysing, calculating and designing.

I have issues with consultants that are using Revit. I heard from the structural  consultant: "...that's cool  you are using Revit. Because we have Revit Structure, we can just use your file to run a program that does the calculations..." I'm afraid that they might just use our information to get their stuff done quickly assuming that our design is correct, and in the long run might take us twice the time to get it right.

What is your experience dealing with consultants using Revit and what are the outlines you have defined at the beginning of the project? Any suggestions?

Thanks.

They'll need to do more work than that.  They'll need to modify and create their own structural elements in order to be able to run the calculations properly.  Unless you guys traditionally place most of the structural elements in yourself.  In this case i suggest you don't.

It turns out that my post could not be any more timely!  An article was just released today stating that Revit will begin issuing a free service to subscribers that takes advantage of a Central Server as opposed to the traditional Central File.  This system is analagous to Archicad's worksharing method.

 For the time being someone on another forum suggested a product called Riverbed that may work until the Revit Central Server has time to get it's bugs worked out.
