Review of Revit

What do you like best?

I like that the software allows me to simultaneously create the floor plan while I build the model three-dimensionally. As a designer, this makes the process of designing a space quicker since I can create floor plan drawings and a three-dimensional model of the space at the same time. Also, I like the program's organization of different drawings located along the left side.

What do you dislike?

I believe that the rendering quality can be approved. Other programs, such as V-ray, typically create renderings that are a lot more realistic due to its accurate portrayal of artificial and natural light in the space and how light interacts with objects. It requires a lot of time and tweaking in order to create a convincing rendering. Also, the software requires a lot of working memory, depending on the size of the file, which often causes my computer to shut down.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest that others make sure that their computers can accommodate the amount of memory needed when using Revit LT. I bought a new computer that would have been able to work along with Revit LT's memory usage, but within two years, my computer completely crashed due to the overload of memory usage. I needed to upgrade to a better processor so that it would work correctly. I wish I knew earlier what to purchase in order to be able to use Revit LT.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Revit LT has more cost-effective, streamlined BIM software than Revit. Yet, it is a bit more restricted in features. I currently create floor plans and models of existing spaces in the software and then design these spaces with 3D modeling. I create working drawings on this software in order to carry out the desired design with in the space.

It's the go-to architectural drafting software for Millennials

What do you like best?

Two key command shortcuts, white background, easy to work with multiple perspectives using tiles screens.

What do you dislike?

Cannot access structural or MEP tools or functionality within the architectural Revit Lite platform, cannot create in-place custom families.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's the cheapest option and is offered as a monthly subscription, I recommend it for customers looking into a pilot project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It blends the early schematic design approach of Sketchup with the CD level documentation on AutoCAD, and I can edit one model to update all views.

Revit in the Engineering field (design specialist)

What do you like best?

Revit platform and interface is very unique. Once mastered the productivity on this software is unmatched by any other relevant software. Revit interface is easy to manage and easy on the eye. BIM in revit is also useful when dealing with structural design.

What do you dislike?

Revit could use a better text placement function as sometimes it turns out to be a little bit finicky to get the text how you want it to look. Allowing more freedom with hotkeys and programmable hotkeys would be a bonus.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Once mastered, can be a much more productive software than AutoCAD. Simply no other software can match up to Revit's 3D modeling.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently staging traffic compartments of a proposed LRT system by municipality. 3D and 2D modeling is used. 3D modeling is very smooth compared to AutoCAD and easier to manage.

Design

What do you like best?

Easier to use and nice for smaller projects and companies.

Nothing - great software! Just too expensive a large files

Revit LT is great for companies whoa re smaller and want to use BIM for the right purposes. It is not exactly like Revit, which is a much more of a complex software - but easier for smaller projects and companies. And easy to view documents faster as well!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps with smaller business tackle their solutions

Powerful program, yet can be difficult to learn & master.

What do you like best?

Integration between 3D design and 2D production. Nice looking visual production & line weights.

What do you dislike?

Not a very intuitive program. Even simple tasks can turn into roadblocks that may take a long time to resolve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely requires some formal training. Is helpful to have other staff available to help beginners with the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The program has many benefits the BIM offers, including being able to coordinate doors with schedules, etc.

quality revit product

What do you like best?

runs smoother in latest versions; many new functions added for 2016 greatly ease daily usage

What do you dislike?

I will always hate the Revit symbol menus until they make them easier to figure out wth they are for. I don't want to memorize 5,000 symbols and go through a maze of menus (that change ffs) just for the one and only tool that will do what is needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

good product that has improved greatly in last few years; Revit will require rethinking all process flows for training / document creation / staffing

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

team collaboration, very rapid 3d export at any given time for collaboration or client reference; full coordinated cds are far easier in revit than other products
