Pros and Cons of using Revit

  • Revit is not a drafting software.  
  • There is not very much documentation on how to use Revit.  We recommend getting training. 
  • Revit is parametric. 
  • Revit uses stock blocks that are typical for the industry.
  • If your project is not typical and requires custom designs then Revit is not the optimum software.
  • If you do not need smart data attached to the drawing objects then Revit may not be not the best option.
  • Revit can model quickly in 3D.
