What do you like best?

It is a program in which you can work on an architectural project and obtain all the necessary material to deliver.

The use of families allows greater control over what is being represented and in turn, information is obtained from materials, components and others that are very necessary for construction.

Added to this is a user-friendly program that allows the naked eye to locate what is looking for work, being an improvement in efficiency and time reduction Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that because I do not know completely the installation mode, which is a bit cumbersome, you only get the skeleton of the program and you can not work optimally.

It is also annoying that if you want to create unique elements such as a "hollow wall", existing families limit it and it is not possible to create it and include it in the calculations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

El modo de trabajo de revit presenta elementos preconfigurados que permiten una elaboración en menos tiempo. Se debe considerar el tiempo que lleva preparar los proyectos, ya que el tiempo es oro cristalizado. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Currently I use it for the elaboration of projects in the office, it has allowed us to elaborate all the necessary material much faster than what we had worked before.

The program is quite friendly, which allows the group to explain the basic concepts to solve the last minute inconveniences.

If it is necessary to present the project, only with the use of this program we have all the elements in a single file where, with a click on the menu, you can quickly access what you want to show. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Product Description

Revit® building design software is specifically built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), empowering design and construction professionals to bring ideas from concept to construction with a coordinated and consistent model-based approach.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

- Revit is a multidiscipline BIM platform:
In the BIM process, multiple team members can work on the same project at the same time in a centrally shared model. Revit has features for all disciplines involved in a building project, so everyone can use the same software, putting the project at the center and connecting participants in the building design and construction process. When architects, engineers, and construction professionals work on one unified platform, the risk of data translation errors can be reduced and the design process can be more predictable.

- Extend Revit collaboration with BIM 360


- Power Revit with cloud services

What do you like best?

You can get all the schedules within no time. You just have to build your 3d highly detailed and rest is automatically generated. Now, the integration of the analytical software within Revit itself, like Daylight and Energy Analysis is just one touch away. Above all, Revit also allows us to make structural analysis and provides a detailed report based on ASHRAE requirements. The inbuilt Dynamo plugin allows creating parametric designs and optimisation process so easy and within the Revit interface.

Moreover, now Revit is capable to link with Rhino and Grasshopper as well, you can now use all open-source plugins within grasshopper to create an optimised design from grasshopper+Rhino into Revit. The plus point here is that you can provide material properties to each building element from within the Revit which makes it highly accurate in results when simulating the building for environmental analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. MacOS doesn't support Revit. You have to use only the Windows operating system for Revit. This is the biggest disadvantage of Revit which reduces a huge amount of users from being using Revit. Revit should definitely come up with some solution to support in macOS soon.

2. The quality of the 3D in the interface without renders is not good, the material in such interface doesn't look real; which means you can not export 3d images directly from a working 3D interface. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You must definitely go for Revit, its a must use the software as it is majorly used software around the world at the moment due to integration of BIM. You can connect your file through cloud BIM 360 to work in collaboration. You can create your drawing or design reach to a large audience in any file format they want. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Architectural designs, conceptual design, planning, floor plans, working drawings, detail drawings, 3D renderings and views. The befit is that it is highly flexible, you can store your selected view, any changes to main 3D will automatically be updated in your saved views so you do not forget to change it. Also, every drawing are kept within the same file, so you can create one master file as your backup data and store everything about the project within the same file. You can also export your 3d into Rhino or Sketchup, can export 2d drawing to AutoCAD or pdf, can export image capture in jpeg/png/pdf; so the Revit becomes easy to export in any format we needed.

What do you like best?

This software is incredible for being able to quickly view plans and elevations in 3d!

You can create full building models of varying complexities for a huge range of purposes!

The software is suitable for such a huge range of applications which makes it a must in a variety of industries.

Revit can also be used as a tool for Building Information Modelling which is a requirement of many construction projects and is the way of the future! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes a while to understand the user interface and the full capabilities of the software. Although there is a huge amount of training resource available, it’s almost impossible to use without a project to implement it on.

The subscription fee for the software is by far its biggest disadvantage as the jump from Lite use to full use is extraordinary. The cost of the software really lets it down and makes it difficult for small businesses to invest initially. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Personally we use the software for a variety of project stages; from conception to construction.

We use in house laser scanners to undertake measured building surveys which can then produce point cloud data and be imported into Revit to create a 3D existing model of the building. From here we can specify wall types with specific build ups and export a series of drawings that can be used for a wide application of things, such as planning drawings, detailed drawings for building regulations compliance, construction drawings and CGI graphics and visualisations.

The software is also fantastic for collaboration and clash detection which makes projects run much smoother when there are lots of consultants required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I use Revit to design architecture projects before my first choice, for you can combine it with structures and designers and if you can use it even in budget and time that is one of the biggest methods for designing and monitoring architectures. It is also great to connect it to light at once and work simultaneously so that you don't waste time making adjustments and changing software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's not that easy to learn how to use by yourself, people just had to take instructional courses, and the best option is to have a Revit certified course. I despise that you'll never be able to collaborate with older versions after you update the software version and your co-workers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Before you start your roll-out, have a sound implementation plan. It is very essential all of those in the organization are both on the same section as aspirations from application. When this is done, you will be more successful and have faster ROI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I design and concentrate as to what should be constructed, and architectural projects are precise and harmonious, so that you know how it's happening to have been, the technicians as well as the architect, and also know what material it needs, as well as how to develop it, so you don't have to do duplication with the engineers.

I use Revit as my first option to design architectural projects cause you can link it with the structure and engineers it calculates materials and if you know how to use it even budget and time of construction, is one of the best tools for architects to design and follow construction. Also, it is great that you can instantly connect it with lumion and work in both at the same time so you do not lose time changing software and making adjustments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not as easy to learn by yourself how to use, you have to follow tutorials and if you can a Revit course certified will be the best option. I hate that once you update the version of the software and your colleagues do not you can work together anymore, is not compatible with older versions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I design architectural projects and focus on how it should be built is precise and it shows harmony, so you know how the structure is going to be, the engineers and the architectural, also to know the amount of each material to be used, and how to build it, collaborate easily with engineers so you do not have to do double work.

Revit is a wonderful system that uses incredible qualities for advanced design for the buildings that you want to create, in a more comfortable way in the course of said work in the digital area of ​​a certain plane, drawing my attention in immense quantities, due to to its extensive list of tools to execute a particular project, precisely for total and perfect effectiveness, since this system is programmed so that the margin of errors does not exist in these high-contrast determinations, being one of my favorite applications to a general level since its functionalities are confined to an architectural, structural and technical field, which turns its functionalities into a totally interesting and peculiar feature, mainly due to its flexibility of use, for experts in these high-end designer areas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Revit is a complete system due to its immense functions that it keeps programmed, including that it is a very deep software in layers of view filters and overrides, without excluding its tools, since they make it a confusing system, most of the users who use this system without basic knowledge in the branch, tend to get lost due to its complexity in the interface and in the areas where certain projects are executed, which is not a flexible and easy to use application generally. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Revit is very suitable for multidisciplinary construction projects, especially for companies that carry out their work worldwide, since we can use this system for different operations based on the design of an entire infrastructure, even for the culmination of certain purposes or idealized objectives, which are in the cloud for completion, being very useful since it meets very outstanding expectations, thanks to its multiple functionalities and tools that it acquires for the effectiveness of a building, in which it effectively manages that there is no margin of error, since they are very significant and delicate works in their digital rendering of the design to be executed in real matters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We use Revit mostly in the areas where our teams made up of engineers are concentrated for the work of constructions and entire buildings, which is the branch in which we are dedicated as a company, globally, and we use this software to idealize and translate all the projects that are presented to us, since we can carry out any type of work thanks to its flexibility, logically managed by this tool by experts in the field of design of certain specific architectural ideas, which suits us immensely, since it is software that it has become essential to the kind of labor movements we run on a daily basis.

What do you like best?

As I will tell for Revit the best thing is the opportunity to collaborate together with both stakeholders on the project. Thanks to obsolete sketches this improve efficiencies and future rework. Having direct input on the design simply by knowing how various elements interact with each other helps smarter design choices to be taken even sooner in the cycle and in effect saves time and resources. With the opportunity to locate the site for real-world dimensions we will get a better understanding about the consequences of any nearby structures or whether the sun would add shadows on the structure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You can't migrate to an older version and if a team operates on an older version the files won't be able to connect to each other. The same happens to friends, so everything stored in a later edition is inconsistent with existing versions. For eg, I just saved about a block of titles in 2019 and still have little links to our common block of titles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What I would say the best part about Revit is the ability to be able to work with all parties on the project at the same time. These increases efficiencies and potential rework due to out of date drawings. Getting instant feedback on the design by simply being able to see how different aspects integrate with each other allows for better design decisions much earlier in the process which in turn saves time and money. With the ability to position the project with real-world coordinates we can get a great idea on the effects to the building from either surrounding buildings or how the sun is going to cast shadows. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not a lot that I dislike about Revit but it would be great if they added some features that specifically help the Construction side to make the models more constructible. At times depending on who is driving the project and what the plan is based upon the BIM Execution Plan, the file sizes can get to be quite large and sometimes they put quite a toll on the hardware of the machine you are using. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have a solid Implementation plan prior to starting your rollout. It is very important that everyone in the organization is on the same page with the expectations that they are going to get from the Implementation. Once this is in place then you are going to have greater success and a faster ROI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You cannot save to an earlier version so if a team is working in an earlier version, the files cannot link to one another. Same is true of families, anything saved over in a newer version is then incompatible with previous versions.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Revit can be really helpful in your project and can contribute a ton to what you will produce. But studying will take some time, and the expense of it to your business and your clients is not what you want if you don't regularly use it for projects. Often, make aware that the various models should not be included if you operate in conjunction with certain disciplines. You can't restore latest iterations of Revit models back to older iterations as AutoCAD are doing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We use Revit for all steps of construction planning, from finite element analysis to construction management. It's very nice to have a one stop store with all of this. It enables us to view all previous knowledge at every point of the process, and to function jointly. This skill reduces our workload dramatically and helps us to invest more time maintaining consistency instead of minimal qualifications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
