Hi,

So I'm a recently graduated intern and I've been using Revit for about a week; self-taught using various tutorials and guides I've managed to find on the net.  I'm the first and only person so far in the office working with Revit with the free trial period.  The partners at the office want me to go over the program with them so they can decide whether or not they want to purchase the program for the office.  I think I have managed to get hang of the main concepts of Revit and what it can do, though I think I would really benefit from some professional instruction.  Anyway, I would really appreciate input from the forum on how Revit is used in their offices, what it is really great for, what it's shortcomings or limitations are, and any other general experience or thoughts on the program.  thanks in advance.

 

S.

Thanks for responding.  I am still hoping to hear how others use Revit day to day in the office; for design development?  construction drawings?  scheduling?  presentions for clients?  what else?  Do people use it in conjunction with CAD?  Once an office is using Revit do they stop using CAD?  I guess since this is a Revit forum I will assume most people here are pretty pro-Revit, but I would love to hear any criticisms as well as what's great about.  Personally I think Revit is a pretty cool program and I think it has a lot of potential.  It is quite different from CAD though at a fundamental level.  What are the design implications of this?  Does it affect your actual design or design process?  Thanks again for any input anyone can share.

i think the goal of most offices using Revit is to be able to complete their projects 100 percent in Revit. Though in the beginning alot of times a combination of Autocad and Revit is used. you should be able to find plenty of info on what you want my searching the variest blogs and websites. For me personally i don't care what it takes. things are changing and the way to get there is a BIM application.

We selected Revit, but there are others. so it really doesen't matter what the implications are, they will have to be dealt with and solved using a BIM application. i think it affects every part of the process of what we use to do. it's just a matter of which BIM app will you select. 10 years from now we all could be using a program that has yet to be developed, but i gaurantte you it will be a BIM based application.

thats my 2 cents

Good Luck With Your Quest

Hi,

We are contractors and I am only one in the office who is using it (others just too busy to learn up)...we mainly use revit for reproduction of architect/engineer's  drawing to visualize & resolve construction issues, sometime prepare construction phasing and use in tender presentation (but not for all projects). 

Hoping to integrate cost in it so it would be an added tool for cost strategy during tendering.

Hope this give you another dimension of how revit is been used....

AutoCAD > Revit is as big a jump as Drawing Board > AutoCAD

...mainly in terms of flexibility, efficiency, versatillty- but also (unfortunately) in the learning curve.

 

Just stick with it and it "will" click.

Regards,

Ian

It's been a little while, but the good news is that my office just purchased Revit and we will be using for a pretty major project.  I'm excited.  Thanks for everyones input.
