Future is here
Kommentare: BIM will certainly change the construction industry in ways we cannot fully appreciate yet. Revit is of the best solutions that are pushing this revolution forward.
- Game-changing and full-featured building BIM design software (Building Information Modeling)
- Simplified the design process beyond belief from the days of AutoCAD
- Quantity take-offs are now byproducts of the building model, not a separate business process.
- With BIM (Not only Revit) the plans, sections and quantity take-offs are all dynamically related. Any change to one of them is immediately reflected on the others
- Works well for Architectural, Structural, HVAC, and MEP modeling.
- Easy to use yet very capable.
- Seamless integration with other Autodesk solutions (NavisWorsk, Robot .. etc.)
- Plenty of training resources online.
Nachteile: - The price is too steep for companies in developing countries especially since it uses an annual subscription for each user.

Best Architectural Software!
Kommentare: Overall, since we have been using Revit for our designs and drafting, we have been able to identify errors in our design using the clash detection abilities. Since designs are in drawn in both 3D and 2D, this has greatly increased our production time and most effectively present the actual 3D designs to our client at the same time. We have also been able share projects among other Professionals in the industry.
Vorteile: Revit is no doubt the best software out there in Terms of BIM (Building information Modeling)! No Architect should use anything less! With Revit one can build free forms easily, manage the building Information, and easily share projects. Its very easy to import other CAD files and manage them effectively. Another thing this software has been able to do is incorporate other Add-on tools like Enscape, Avail Browswer, e.t.c. for maximum efficiency. lest I forget, This software creates both the 2D and 3D simultaneously!
Nachteile: Hmmm.... this can be a little difficult, but one major thing I wish AutoDesk would do is make framing of Walls and Floors easier than it is right now.

Best and easy way to make a BIM model.
Kommentare: Through revit the modeling of different trades is very easy and fast. So at the time of submission which comes at any time from client, Revit is so much useful software for modeling and export in other file formats.
Vorteile: The tools used in the interface of Revit is very user friendly for BIM users. Like Modeling of Hvac, Plumbing, electrical and making of their families is very easy in this software. For the new users in BIM Industry one should start with revit software.
Nachteile: There are not very much problems in Revit software but through use of this software complete precise modeling is not make like the slope of Gravity pipes is not maintained accurately that you want or asper client specifications.

Far Exceeds abilities of CAD related design software
Kommentare: I use Revit on a daily basis to develop architectural projects, and use it to coordinate design ideas on a regular basis with engineering consultants.
Vorteile: The coordination of all aspects of a building through all the different sheets. Change something in one view and it seamlessly gets updated on all other related sheets in the project.
Nachteile: Every now and then I come across a tool that I wish had the ability to do something extra. Hopefully in future releases these functions will be includes.

Good Product, Could be Better
Kommentare: Again, I love the compatibility aspect, I just don't care for the required learning curve. A lot of patience is necessary.
Vorteile: I love that professional construction documents can be created utilizing this software and that it is compatible with AutoCAD.
Nachteile: I have yet to experience any cons within the Revit software other than the learning curve required even with having familiarity with other AutoDesk software.

The way of the future! Get on board now!
Kommentare: My business gave me no formal training in Revit right away. However I offered to learn the program in my free time, and found it very easy to pick up on. Within a couple weeks, I could operate just about any single command and could complete all the necessary functions for my business. Is very intuitive and easy to use, although sometimes there are just glitches that you were going to find in any other modeling program. Overall rabbit is a more versatile, and diverse program that will be useful for many fields. I would be surprised if My business gave me no formal training in Revit right away.

Vorteile: One of the most intuitive solid modeling programs. Can be used for a versatile field. It is useful in floorplan designing, 3-D modeling, and everything in between. It seems like the industries are turning towards Revit more and more.
Nachteile: It is still missing some functions that other programs have had forever. Such as a trim function, or a grouping function. Although it has other commands that help make up for this. It can definitely glitch out quite a bit, and sometimes it only allows you to do certain tasks in sketch view even when they should be available in solid view.

BIM Manager Review
Kommentare: For myself it has just been training others and helping them and picking up the slack where they aren't comfortable or able to do the work due to still learning. Our first project is a 10-story apartment complex.
Vorteile: I am the BIM Manager for my firm that recently started using Revit/BIM. I love working in 3D and in the BIM software. I setup templates and help train others.
Nachteile: My only con at this time is the development of more MEP families of all types with the proper connections. I know the development of families from manufacturers and Autodesk has grown since I last used it. I would like to see more and have them be easy to find whether it be on the Autodesk site or a 3rd party add-on. Right now I use 3 different add-ons as well as going to the individual manufacturer's website and the Autodesk site.

Revit, the future is now
Kommentare: With Revit, we are visualizing the construction of a digitally project in 4D, 3D models with time, phasing. We can pick up potential problem and issue in the design phases rather than during construction. Properly documented Revit models can avoid potential on-site changes and possible reduction in construction time and cost.
across multi discipline
object/3d model orientated rather than linework/linetype based
ease of design/construction management
model in 4 dimensions, 3d objects with phasing (time)
huge learning curve
cost of creating and managing company digital asset

Kommentare: we love the program. it is fully functional and helps us look like a large firm instead of a mom and pop operation.
Vorteile: this is very complete and thorough software, it has everything we need to design and print the blueprints for any projects we do. we are able to collaborate with others using revit and our clients love the results.
Nachteile: pretty complex. this is not something you buy off the shelf and use, it takes a lot of training and use to fully utilize it. also there are a ton of addins and extras which is good, but very confusing

Revit for Beginners
Kommentare: I used Revit for a Construction Drafting class. Even with the help of the instructor I had difficulty navigating the software, but once I was able to figure things out I found the results pleasing.
Vorteile: Revit is a great tool to bring ideas into reality. It's as close as one can get to a real. I loved how one can use the walkthrough feature to visualize each and every corner of the house.
Nachteile: Revit is complicated to use. If there is one little mistake it takes hours to figure it out, even with the use of Autodesk's help tool.

The key to get into 3D modeling era.
Kommentare: Overall I hightly recommend to purchase revit if u are in construction business. This software is cost effective and less time consuming interms of creating 3d models. This is a visually appealing software to work with.
Vorteile: My construction firm uses revit as a standard software for 3d modeling and interior designing for more than 2 years. Our company strongly believe in keeping up with the latest technology as a strategy to stay solid in this competitive business. For that revit itself has evolved alot during this two years. I feel rivit is a must know software for any architect, civil engineer or an interior designer. The best part using revit is u can give attention to each and every element individually with more care which will make a huge difference inthe final output. The inbuilt library feature is large and requires some time to master in it.this product can be integrated with Autodesk recap,3D max,sketchup,Autodesk cloud..etc. from the root level of a design to validating a design revit can be used without a question with industry standards.above all revit not only satisfies the user but also the client .
Nachteile: Honestly revit has nothing much to worry as a basic 3d modeling software,but it of course requires some time to master but at the end of the day its worthy. And also it demands a computer with high functioning capability. And also I have noticed that we can not input any pdf formets into it. And there is no reterograde compatibility since the older version had no cloud feature. As my last point revit predominantly focuses on structural elements only I wish if this improves further to help the designers as well.

Great software for great ideas
Kommentare: Revit speed the drawing process to an 80%. I will recommend to use Revit to architectural and engineering firms.
Vorteile: This software is easy to use, specially if you come from the AutoCAD background. I like the fact that I am working tri-dimensionally and see esthetics of my projects almost immediately. Also, Revit has a huge library with parametric components that I can access. Another cool thing is that Revit can be use to measure the environmental impact of my models if my clients are interested.
Nachteile: In order to create nice quality renderings, I need to use other software (s) in combination with Revit because using Revit by itself will give me clunky images with a "computer" look, that as an project manager, I don't think my clients will enjoy.

Excellent 3D / BIM software
Kommentare: Revit software has greatly improved a number of important areas: 1) much easier and faster 3D preparation and presentation, and 2) great improvement in technical drawing speed.
Vorteile: Revit is structured to create buildings and structures immediately in 3D. It is ready to go "out of the box" with a great variety of built in components (walls, floors, roofs, stairs and more). The model can be viewed in 2d (plan, elevation, and section) at the same time as in 3D. Compared to other similar products, Revit has a very high level of accuracy. Revit models can be exported to a wide variety of other disciplines. Revit has excellent 3d shading and realistic modes. It also has a strong rendering engine. Great outside sources of additional building components are available.
Nachteile: Revit models can become quite large. Obtain a copy of file transfer software (many are available free online) to send and receive Revit models.

Great software for architecture, design and engineering
Kommentare: My overall experience with Revit is very positive. This has sped up the design and documentation process at work. The software, although it's not the most intuitive to use, once it's learned, it's easy to use
Vorteile: The software has a lot of capabilities. The amount of things it can do are incredible. For a designer like myself, it makes the design process much easier than having to use multiple software. I can design the space, build a model and render all in one. It also helps tremendously when it comes to construction documents, as it is much easier to create and edit those in the same file. This program is also great because multiple people can collaborate in one model at the same time
Nachteile: Because how much this program does and helps, sometimes there are too many ways to edit things. This is not usually an issue when one person is working on a model, but when many people work in the same file, it can be confusing

Very good architectural BIM software
Vorteile: One of the best features on Revit, because it is a BIM software, everything you work is created on several planes, on floor plans, elevations, section cuts and 3D model. As you progress, you feed the project with premade infomation about materials, thermal resistance, finishing layer and other stuffs, wich is premade (already within the software) or it can be dowloaded and also created by yourself. Revit has a very large library avaible within but there are a lot of elements avaible to dowload on internet. The best plus is once you have gone through your project, is that withe the parameters you fed, you can easily create charts of materials and elements quantities, helping with later stages of the project (like construction quotes).
Nachteile: As autocad, the learning curve is extensive, you have to dedicate several hours to get acquainted, most importantly getting and creating libraries for everything, furniture, texts, symbols, materials...., but once you get what you use the most, everything goes more swiftly.

Revit is what more and more companies are switching to and it makes sense
Kommentare: Overall I think Revit is a great tool and I highly recommend it. I think it is also great for older generations who have been working with AutoCAD for 20+ years. It forces them to have to stay on their toes and to learn how to adapt to new technology in engineering and design, which I think it a great thing. It lowers the threshold for entry into various positions with a company and gives access to people so they don't have to compete with someone simply because they haven't had the chance to do AutoCAD forever.
Vorteile: I think Revit is incredible and I cannot recommend it enough. Its ease of use and versatility makes it a great BIM software for many engineering and architecture companies. Unlike AutoCAD, I think Revit is easier to understand, to navigate, and to adopt. If you are coming from doing AutoCAD for 30 years, it may not be intuitive initially, but people grow to love it and eventually prefer it to AutoCAD.
Nachteile: While I have not experienced this issue, many people I know who switch from AutoCAD to Revit say that it's not as intuitive, however, I have found it to be entirely intuitive. I think the main reason people feel that way is because they can't type shortcuts like you can for CAD. People who have done CAD for years can get sloppy and there are many ways to do many different things, you have to really know what you're doing and precision is key with Revit. I personally don't mind this, but some people do.

Revit is a great multi-dimensional software for architectural projects
Kommentare: Overall, I love using Revit. It supports work-sharing and inter-disciplinary collaboration. This platform enables simultaneous work on a design file which improves efficiency and redundant work.
Vorteile: This software provides multi-dimensional layers to an architectural projects, enabling collaboration between structural, lighting, and mechanical engineering and architects. Design challenges, alternative options, and different phases can be created through options, worksets, or links. Revit schedules area great way for data management and coordination.
Nachteile: Exporting the revit file into CAD is not entirely 2D. It may needs some improvement in terms of export properties. Sometimes syncing is an issue when multiple people are trying to save at the same time.

To go to plug for construction designs.
Kommentare: I use Revit personally for my day to day work activities and it is an innovation that is very relevant to the AEC industry. It has been awesome.
Revit is a software that solves the problem of herculean creation of architecture and engineering drawings in 2D. With revit designers can create 3D intelligent models that accurately projects the visual and functional properties of a building/facility.
There are tons of educative materials and support documents that can help a user become adept with the software.
The pricing is a little expensive, especially for small firms or lone design practitioners.
Also System requirements will need purchase of high end computer device, to use at maximum capacity seamlessly.

Revit - Essential for Architectural Practice
Revit offers a great opportunity for design, but it can limit those who don't have the skills necessary to manipulate the tools and parameters. In that way it can be intimidating.
However, it offers great software to draw, design, and prepare documents.
Every component is customization and able to be manipulated, once you know how to use families/types/rules.
Easy to use and pairs nicely with 3D rendering tools such as Enscape.
Worksharing is simple with a shared network or Revit cloud feaures.
Nachteile: There is a learning curve to mastering Revit. Because of the way certain things can be linked, such as type parameters in families, it is easy to see mistakes made in Revit have a domino effect and cause problems down the road.

Revit is a no-brainer
Kommentare: Couldn't imagine documenting buildings any other way. Robust capabilities, good support. It's become an industry standard.
Vorteile: Hands down, one of the better design documentation software's on the market. Having experienced both CAD and BIM delivery, Revit has saved thousands of hours from traditional drafting. Now with inclusion of Dynamo, model interoperability is seamless and bi-directional, making Revit a much more functional tool for those who may still want to design in Rhino, SketchUp, etc.
Nachteile: Revit was concieved as a documentation and model management tool. It does not have the same geometry modeling capabilities and user-friendliness as other 3D modeling platforms.

Revit - Workflow Powerhouse
Kommentare: Revit has the benefit of allowing multiple users access the model at once. Although it does require a some frontloaded hours to set up the model, it will make up that time and more at the end of the project.
Vorteile: Revit allows you to draw in 3 dimensions creating plans, sections, elevations, and 3D all at once.
Nachteile: Revit while being one of the most powerful production software, it does have quite a learning curve. This can lead to major issues if a user does not fully understand the workflow.
Bewertet am 6.8.2019
Vorteile: There's no question why this is industry standard construction software. Revit is powerful enough to create highly detailed record as-built models, while at the same time being clean and elegant enough for new users to pick up quickly. I switched over my office to use Revit for Qty. takeoffs instead of OST. By the end of the process, we put in the same amount of work but get much more of a work product by having the 3D model.
Nachteile: The price is fairly prohibitive if you were a single person, but for large companies, it isn't a big ask.

Another amazing design tool from autodesk.
Kommentare: Overall this is a very useful software in architecture and structural design firm. I hope to see further developments.
Vorteile: Revit is a design product from autodesk since our company utilize multiple products from autodesk its easy to incorporate revit with the other softwareslike autocad. Apart from your inputs revit has multiple in built elements which can be incorporated into your project. It enables multiple users to work on the same project. It may be a little confusing at the beginning but once you learn how to use it then it will become a wonderful experience to work with.
Nachteile: There are only few drawbacks regarding revit. It takes a lot of time to understand this software this will be very challenging to the beginners. There are only few layers when compared to autocad. And also this software is not eye friendly to work with. Somehow it makes my eyes to get tiered while working with it.

Kommentare: Great product! Tough to start working with but gets easier quickly. GREAT TIME SAVER!
Vorteile: My first instinct always when selling someone on Revit is the efficiency aspect. Revit is great for drawing one object and it's instantly use-able in another application. A floorplan automatically becomes a section, detail, etc. as long as you know what you're doing - it's a HUGE time saver!
Nachteile: The learning curve is steep at the beginning, switching from a 2D (driven) program such as CAD or ArchiCAD which can make it intimidating to start or transition into.
