Pros

This software is a good tool to aid in estimating. Lots of useful tools and accurate, with various costs being consolidated in a timely fashion.
The ability to produce estimates much more accurately and quickly has been useful.
Customer service is awesome. After getting the proper training it is easier to use and there are plenty of videos to help if a problem arises.

Pros

With great Autodesk help support and an active online community, you can always find solutions to any issue you may have. I have been recommending Revit to colleagues every chance I get.
The product offers high quality 3D views of any structure and is fantastic for coordinating with other divisions of engineering in a construction project.
It is a great software for modeling of construction to help us to save time and money modeling your projects3.

Cons

You only get one license, it is very confusing if there is no training, it is not user friendly, the cost is very high and to maintain the software up to date is costly.
Back up service in Australia is poor referring you to a contact in Brisbane which is pretty useless when your in Perth.
Fairly dumb program in that to do a complete build up estimate you Either have to pay another 4K for quick bid or develop a excel spreadsheet and live link the data which is sometime temperamental.

Cons

I hate the way the walls should be painted, the lack of compatibility between the various versions of the program, and how long it takes to do a single project.
I also think their error messages are not detailed enough. It makes it hard for you to know what the actual issue is, just that something went wrong, or something was deleted for no reason.
Partly because the BIM competition is still weak and partly because now we have invested so much time that it would be hard to recreate all this experience again.

Revit

a must for construction documents

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

I have been always using AutoCAD for my construction document drawings. I still use CAD but Revit makes it easier because I get to see my drawings in 3D instantly which helps to understand space better.

Cons

Revit is definitely for CD phase, not for the schematic design phases where you try different design options. Unless you have your construction method all figured out, Revit might not be for quick design studies.

REVIT IS THE FUTURE

Reviewed 3 years ago

In order to get a whole building project executed in quick timing and algo 3d models, i would absolutely use revit, since the lumion ad in is quite excellent.

Pros

What i liked the most, is the quickness of 2d drawing and 3d modeling, since it gives you a clearer image of the building itself.

Cons

I find it quite octogonal, and for some reason , i dont like the plot styles, i think there are another softwares way more easy to costumize.

Revit

makes life easier

Reviewed 2 years ago

The software itself is very easy to use. quick and well detailed results. It allows the user to create without limitations without counting on the BIM tool which is a revolution for the area

Pros

the ease that the Software offers in providing the 3d model from the low end automatically makes the modeling of the project much easier! Facilitating the perception of details that without this feature would be very difficult to notice! Not to mention the functionality of the BIM tool

Cons

As it is a very robust software, it requires the need for a powerful computer to run more elaborate renderings, but it is not a software limiter.

Best in Class Professional Architecture Design and Construction Software

Reviewed 3 years ago

I use Revit (Architecture) every day from schematic design through construction administration, for quick design exercises, client presentations, and of course construction documentation. It is the industry standard for producing clear and accurate documentations and can be customized to show any level of detail required.

Pros

Revit connects design and documentation seamlessly, allowing design changes to be reflected in construction documents as soon as they are modeled. Currently, it is the only software capable of efficiently 3D modeling with construction accuracy, while also allowing for CD level detailing without excessive 2D line drafting.

Cons

Because it is the best in class software, it comes with a hefty price tag. Some operations can be finicky and difficult to learn, but it is so widely used and frequently updated, that it's easy to find learn how to do anything you may need to do for a typical architectural project.

Great deal to save your time and efforts

Reviewed a year ago

I would highly recommend settling up this software which is becoming a common choice in several firms. The key benefit is that Revit can manage building data during its complete lifecycle, starting from the conceptual design stage to an end rendered walkthrough, real quick while getting into objective complexity. I must say, here lies a great deal to save your time and efforts!

Pros

Revit’s pros are all about its versatility in creating easy-going and impactful solutions through computer-aided designs, drafting, and graphics, both in 2D and 3D. It offers: • Versatile toolsets for - architectural design, MEP and structural engineering and construction • BIM software benefits - 3Cs: can Collaborate, Communicate, and Co-ordinate • Quickness - All components are dynamically related. Any changes made are reflected immediately in all aspects. • Advancements - Allows parametric modeling and Smart object import, realistic renders, walkthroughs, etc • Inbuilt vast library and templates • Multiple users can work on a file at the same time • Easy and user-friendly interface

Cons

I have been using Revit for two years now. I feel this software has great potential with practical aspects, but it is not flexible enough to try experimentation or organic modeling. The quirks lie with “so many tools equal to so much of confusion.” I had issues in tackling topographies, working organically, higher-lower version conversions, storage capacity, error messages not being that detailed, and yes, its hefty price tag. Some operations get too challenging to go along. It seems to be a bit rigid, although, overall, it gives out a practical, working output.

An excellent tool if you are willing to invest the time.

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've been using Revit Architecture since (I believe) 6.0 version I used as a student. I was actually recruited because of its knowledge which was relatively scarce in 2011. It a great BIM (building information model) software that can accomplish almost any design task. What sets it apart from say Archicad is that the built in content is scarce but the built in tools will let you design all the missing...

Pros

- Easy to learn (hard to master). And intuitive for the most part. - Family editor offer a basic programming syntax so you can design almost anything - many 1st and 3rd party addons to tailor the software - built in 3d views are basic but with ambient shadows and realistic material view they can be shown to the client as a in-progress model. Very convenient to have the possibility. Even in Revit LT (lite, addonless) - Updated every year. Often minor tweaks

Cons

- Revit LT lacks (among other more important features) a tool to modify shape of a floor. Designing a 3d flat roof is almost impossible and your best bet is to draw flat lines (which defeats the purpose of BIM model) - certain families and certain corrections in the model will cause a disappearance of spot dimensions or regular dimensions. THe built-in error window will display something like "43...
