Revit Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Autodesk Revit is a building information modelling software for architects, landscape architects, structural engineers, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers, designers and contractors. The original software was developed by Charles River Software, founded in 1997, renamed Revit Technology Corporation in 2000, and acquired by Autodesk in 2002. The software allows users to design a building and structure and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements, and access building information from the building model's database. Revit is 4D building information modeling capable with tools to plan and track various stages in the building's lifecycle, from concept to construction and later maintenance and/or demolition.

Brian W., Electrical Design engineer mentioned some of the CONS of Autodesk Revit in a review he wrote back in July 2020 for CAPTERRA website: Revit LT lacks (among other more important features) a tool to modify the shape of a floor. Designing a 3d flat roof is almost impossible and your best bet is to draw flat lines (which defeats the purpose of the BIM model) - certain families and certain corrections in the model will cause the disappearance of spot dimensions or regular dimensions. The built-in error window will display something like "43 error" but you will never be able to locate all deleted annotations. - lack of quality content built in the software. You can create all the families (objects in the model) by yourself but it takes time. So it becomes necessary that you have a designated person drawing specific families used in your company or you can depend on 3rd parties for that. The families that come with Revit are basic and often need adjustment -material schedules are not to be dependent upon. A single wall will have the same area of material that is both inside and outside but that is minor. If a wall is cut or joined with another object the volume will be double-counted. At the same time, any concrete elements in the wall will not be subtracted from the wall material volume. It's best to avoid said schedules. - the tools for site planning are basic and often insufficient. A simple road on a slope can be a problem (unless you divide the plane into triangles) - No autosave function and "model hasn't been saved in a while" prompts. The save can take a couple of seconds sometimes but automatic would be better


Tell the world why Revit sucks!

I certify that this review is based on my own experiece and is my opinion of this person or business. I have not been offered any incentive or payment to write this review.

Company Driver (Current Employee) says

"I feel they are not very good at making sure everybody needs are met and when repairs needs to be made to the trucks they are not fast acting on those problems.You get paid by route not hoursChecks come 3-4 days late"

Supervisor de Obra (Former Employee) says

"La empresa tenia muy buenos proyectos que permitían adquirir muy buena experiencia laboral"

Career Qualification Specialist (Former Employee) says

"I had been 6 years experienced Architect Facade Designer occupation career in local Singapore.I have been working at Singapore in this present moment."

Exhausted says

"Just doing simple things like getting existing columns to have a poche is insane. They should consult architects, or see how this program is used. We aren\'t software engineers. The tool needs to support the design process and not become an obstacle, but half the time is just trying to figure out how to go from A to B. "
