What do you like best?

The parametric families can be tailored to create any object you need. This saves time later when you need a similar object. Revit LT 3d views (can't create renderings) are quite ok, especially when used with ambient shadows and realistic material view. For some clients this will be satisfactory and you can skip renderings altogether. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Revit LT lacks some basic Revit Features - like manipulating flat roof points or creating renderings. It also doesnt support plugins soyou can't use more advanced rendering options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Usually Revit LT is all you need e.g. full Revit is only required when doing large project with multiple architects and other designers work on the same file. You will be missing on rendering options (only online rendering is available) but that doesn't seem to be a big issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I've created many templates so that my colleagues can just apply a template to a view and have a consistent view style in all our projects.

Also I've created a parametric window family that have varying number of subwindows, an on-off switch for opening and air went - instead of looking through library you can use one single object with all the options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Revit LT and Revit finally do what I was promised that CAD would do when I entered the profession 35 years ago. Automated schedules, instant 3d modelling, true visualization of the end product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Revit LT omits the MEP functions, which, as a sole practitioner, frequently need to be able to draw for myself. Some of the online documentation is difficult to understand Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Quick results for multiple presentation type views of the project. I was able to generate plans, sections, and interior perspectives for a design change in just a couple of hours, where creating all those different views in standard CAD would have taken at least a full day, if not more.

What do you like best?

Revit's best quality is it's ability to represent information, and it's use of existing in 3d. Drawing something in plan and knowing it will exist in elevation and section, etc, is great and helps with understanding projects in a 3d realm. It's also incredible because multiple people can be working on the same file at once, which makes it the most integral tool to use in architecture. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Revit is not a design tool, and to be fair it is never advertised as one. It can be frustrating when it is tried to be used as such. There are also minor irritations with the program in general - specifically with groups and such, but they are things that can be worked around. There is also no backwards compatibility (but this is true of most Autodesk products). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Takes some getting used to, but worth it. You'll find new things about revit everyday, and it can be very frustrating, but worth it as it cuts down a lot of time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are creating buildings with Revit. It is great to be able to send out revit files to consultants (building engineers, contractors, etc) and know that everyone is seeing the same information. Benefits include Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It has everything you would need to create construction documents and design. It has all the fancy bells and whistles full Revit has and only differs slightly in that it does not do work sharing or creates in place models. There is a way to get around creating in places models and that's by creating a wall model which you can shape in any form you would like as well as create a family which contains all you would need to create an in-place model with just the added step of importing the family. It is all you need and all you want if you are a medium to a small firm that does not need to work on anything else besides Architecture and light structural and MEP. If you're doing MEP then yes you will need FULL REVIT or structural analysis or using Dynamo, if you are switching over as a newbie from AutoCAD then this will help you feel not as overwhelmed when learning BIM modeling. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't much to dislike. However, for the sake of constructive criticism I will make an effort to think of what I believe could be done different or better. Revit for a long time used the control tab to toggle to the previous open window which in the updated version has opted to create menu tabs to move from drawing to drawing. This is helpful yet when you would like to return to the previous sheet, say after copying a detail or note or anything for that matter and you control tab it brings you back right to the first sheet opened. Which means you have to control tab and control tab until you finally reach your sheet. No one realistically does this, I imagine most surrender and just select the menu tab yet this little extra step does create a sort of a nuisance when working at a great rhythm. If Revit could keep both it would be a better drafting experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It will do all you need if you are doing simple tenant improvements, moderate new construction projects that don't require intensive MEP or structural design. If you are doing design perhaps a push pull design product would best suit your needs however your model will not be intelligent such as the one Revit can produce. Transitioning from design to construction documents is fairly easy. I recommend Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Creating Construction Documents on traditional AutoCAD seemed to be a labor-intensive task since each view elevation, floorplan, and section would have to be drawing and edited individually even for a small change such as a door that is being placed where a previous window existed. BIM does solve a lot of the work that makes traditional drafting an arduous task. Revit LT allows you to use BIM at a low cost. When choosing the subscription version you also get to render using the Autodesk Cloud with an included 25 credits to use however you may please. It's a great deal if you ask me.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
