"See It Before It's Real"

What do you like best?

The thing that I like best about Revit Live is the ability to show and highlight to a client and/or owner their building in a way that they can get the full experience, before we have even put a shovel in the ground. This gives them the ability to make better design decisions where they otherwise may not make the best call.

What do you dislike?

There really is not much that I dislike about the product. Just like anything it is going to grow and become enhanced as the technology changes. Along with most of the technology within this Industry, there will be increased interoperability that comes in time as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure that your hardware is up to the task to get the proper experience.

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

This makes it so much easier to understand and experience the project from whatever end you are on whether it be Design, Construction, Ownership etc...See it before it is real.

"Not accommodative"

What do you like best?

It is cool that you can make a presentation and you don't have to save and transfer it to the client

The fact that you can change the lighting and turn on/off lights

What do you dislike?

Most of the receivers have to have all the windows viewer and the internet browser ready and installed for them to review the presentation

The fact that the doors wont get open

The fact that you can not take a still jpeg outcome from the scene

Recommendations to others considering the product

Your control on the presentation is pretty minimal

You can not create jpeg images without external software

It is inexpensive but you have pretty darn limitations with it as well. I would say, if you have extra money for investing in your solutions, don't go near Live since there are a lot of other good products in the market

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

Nothing. Honestly, I am using it because it comes automatically with the collection nothing more

What Building Design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Extremely useful CAD software for projects"

What do you like best?

One of the most important of the software is that it cuts down on the amount of repetition you have to go through when designing your model. It also helps you to make your own processes more sustainable.

Revit cuts down on the number of drawings you need for your models. That means far fewer printouts.

What do you dislike?

Revit isn’t the easiest software to use if you want to work on building interiors from a different perspective.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Revit has gained a lot of steam since it was first introduced. However, it’s still not as popular as the biggest CAD and digital design tools. So, it needs more popularity.

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

It is highly useful to design and if your model is intensively used for structural designing it is extremely useful. One of the major benefits is that it stores any new components, or edits to its existing components, in its library. This means you can access pretty much anything that you design instantly.

"Great CAD software"

What do you like best?

I love that the costs are reasonable and you can do longer terms to save money. This includes Revit, Civil and Auto CAD and it works perfectly for the construction industry

What do you dislike?

I wish that discounts weren't only offered to the people who have more than one license or buy for more years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is great for architects and engineers and design build companies

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

We like having the newest technology and love all of the software that comes with Revit Live.

"instant walkthrough rendering"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it does the instant rendering and cuts down the process of having to go through multiple steps during the phase of schematics vs the actual documentation. "virtual reality"

What do you dislike?

it still lacks in creating the easiest platform to use and trial of different schemes during the design phase.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are the user of the actual revit product rather than other tool to create all your phasing, revit live might be one of the best options since it directly relates back to your model without exporting / importing and all that other process you have to go through.

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

quick rendering of walkthrough to show clients what it is like.

"The easiest platform for architects or designers to show inmersive 3D Renderngs"

What do you like best?

The easy interface, the many options you have to customize the experience, the ability to connect CAD files to Revit, how smooth the walkthrough is. I mean I like it all the benefits and how accurate it is.

What do you dislike?

the software itself is very heavy to process for many average computers have to get a fast processing machine to be able to work with it happily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get it! use it! and practice a lot! and get more RAM on your computer because you gonna need it.

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

I'm an interior designer and work for a design studio and we use it to show clients the walkthrough of their future homes or spaces.

"Enables to bring architectural models to life!"

What do you like best?

Enables to bring my model to real life. Thanks to the Virtual Reality component of it, I am able to place myself within my architectural model as if it truly existed

What do you dislike?

This tool has done nothing but help me render quicker and allow for my projects to come to life, I have nothing negative to say about it as of right now

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

I am able to present my projects to my instructors and fellow studio partners. We are able to see different aspects of our revit models and experience our model beyond the 3D aspect

"Love the virtual reality feature "

What do you like best?

It’s easy to use. I love Revit because it’s nice being able to put all your drawings in one place. I love the Live features that allows you to walk through a home virtually. Makes it easy to give clients a vision of their house other than just a drawing.

What do you dislike?

Honestly nothing comes to mind. It’s annoying because the VR ability catches errors that don’t necessarily appear in a drawing, haha. But that’s what we need it to do.

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

Catching errors in VR that are not as noticeable in drawings. Uploading quickly to the cloud.

"Great tool"

What do you like best?

It is a great tool to visualize the intern aspects of an architectural design.

What do you dislike?

it's very complicated to use, demands a lot of studying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great software and has more tools than the sketch up tool we are all used to use to do the virtual tours inside the architectural designs.

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

It is a perfect way to show the design to the client.
