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.

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.

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.

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.

The new way of doing architecture
Kommentare: Revit has changed the way I design, updating my plans while I focus on modeling.
Vorteile: Revit is simply superior to all other software on the market, with its nature BIM is the present of architecture.
Nachteile: I would like Revit to be more intuitive and certain functions to be less complex.

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.

Revit the best of BIM
Kommentare: I have been creating numerous dynamo graphs and python codes to automate many mundane tasks that the people in the office spend hours doing.(which is now minutes)
Vorteile: The best feature is that it is the customization i.e., now that the API is open to users we are able to automate many mundane tasks that would usually take days.
Nachteile: The software requires a certain level of practice to be used in the right way i.e., not anyone is able to use the software to make drawings off the bat but requires a level of training to get things right or the model could have many errors.

Perfect for architects and engineers
Vorteile: Drawing in 2d and at the same time in 3d, you get the whole product in one, with real materials, real quantifications to create a budget since the very beginning of the design. Structural, architectural, lighting, HVAC tools, and much more! As an architect I use this software daily, it´s easy and has all you need to work on a project.
Nachteile: You need a good computer for this software.

BIM made me do it
Vorteile: Autodesk makes the transition between all their apps familiar and not overwhelmingly difficult to navigate through their ribbon tool bars and navigation tools. Revit is no different. When I first began my journey in to the fast paced world of MEP coordination making the jump from AutoCad to Revit wasn't as terrifying as it could have been.
Nachteile: Minimum system requirements aren't enough to keep up with a coordination model that has many other trade models linked in. 3D CAD models do not display properly.

Autodesk Revit: Essential for architects
Vorteile: It is pretty much AutoCAD geared specifically towards architecture and construction. I find it much more intuitive than AutoCAD, and it is parametric, making it simple to change your floor plan and drawings.
Nachteile: The default libraries can be a bit outdated. And while the cloud rendering has drastically improved the rendering capabilities of Revit, you may still need programs such as 3DSMax to create truly realistic renderings.

A phenomenal Design Software
Kommentare: After doing years of drafting with AutoCAD, I discovered Revit and it has never been the same again me. I have been more efficient, reliable and authentic with my designs.
Vorteile: When it comes to 3D modelling, Revit stands out to be the best in my opinion. I like the fact that it has structural, mechanical and architectural interfaces with the three segments containing various design components under families. Revit makes 3D modelling very easy and fast because changes on one segment are communicated automatically to other segments . As we all know time is money and therefore this saves a lot of the time and money.
Nachteile: As good as Revit is, it has the disadvantage of lacking popularity due to its relative newness in the market. This is challenge because a new software has few tutors and expert and thus it takes enormous time and effort to learn and master it. Revit is also restricted to buildings and cannot do designs for roads and cars for example.
Bewertet am 9.3.2019
Vorteile: This software quickly adds BIM capabilities to any architect’s workflow. Not only does it allow users to quickly produce accurate construction documents, but you can also colaborate with colleagues on the same model and even share it directly with owners and contractors.
Nachteile: The software is rather cumbersome and takes years to master. After 6+ years using the program I still find new tips and tricks.

The best Architectural 3d modelling tool
Vorteile: For me this is the best Architectural modelling tool, is fully compatible with the Autodesk suite, and many other softwares aswell. Perfect for creating BIM content, creating blueprints, schedule quantities, etc...
Nachteile: It comes with a basic rendering engine, but this software is not made to be a rendering tool, you can use different softwares or install the Vray for Revit and get the problem easy fixed

Revit is Powerful but Slow
Vorteile: Revit has a great user interface and it is easy to find things.
Nachteile: I typically work on large files, these files get so bogged down with all the information Revit generates. I would like a better way to purge unneeded information or a way to generate less information to shrink file size. I would also like more customization within the user interface and more specifically with annotations.
