    Alas, my post to this blog was not "allowed" and a fair and honest rebuttal of this challenge has been denied.

    As expected, but it proves your point. The challenge was obviously slanted in favor of SU. If the blogger honestly wanted to compare the two programs they would have welcomed your feedback and maybe even ran a new competition, head to head against you or another Autocad expert. But since they blocked your comments, they're showing that they are only interested in pro SU feedback. No critiques allowed. This blogger has zero credibility in my opinion.

    I don't know anything about SU but the comparison of two PDF's is a weak way to determine which program is better. I also have never heard anyone claim one was better than the other, sounds like a straw man argument to me.

    I went to the SU website and watched an architect go through some drawings he was working on and I was blown away by them. That looks like some serious software and seems to compete with Revit, although I know next to nothing about Revit either. I am not sure but SU seems to be geared to the building industry like Revit, but again I don't know much about either one. Based on what little I know and judging by price and licensing I would say SU is a better choice that Revit, at least for a one man shop doing house designs. No idea how it would be for a large commercial project with many people involved.

    So AutoCAD is a jack of all trades, master of none kind of program, has a large user base and is so successful there are lots of cheaper clones available

    SketchUp is GREAT but it isn't Revit in any way, shape or form. Not even close. I believe that Trimble's goal with SU was to mold it into their own BIM product but that has not happened yet. Our Revit experts can cite the extreme differences between the two in more detail.

    I'm obviously involved in the MEP side of the industry, but I do hear my fellow architects go back and forth on which one is better between Revit and SU, and it always comes down to a specific output or task. Conceptualizing, SU take the cake. From there, Revit pulls ahead exponentially. I just sit back and smile while they argue... probably like what most people do here when I get fired up over a topic lol.

    I think Kent has the right response, it's hard to look at outputs and compare. Which doesn't surprise me, for Kent has probably one of the most common sense minds on this message board. But, to back him up, my AutoCAD 2D outputs in PDF form, and my Revit 3D outputs in PDF form, in plan view only, are almost identical. This is, of course, planned because I want our standards to be as close as possible with our deliverables and most untrained eyes can't tell the difference. But wow, what a difference in platforms to get to the PDF output - which is a whole other topic of discussion altogether.

    Maybe if the same results were on an AutoCAD blog I would give it some weight, seems pretty damning to me that quite a few knew the better one was AutoCAD on a SketchUp blog. Trying to add undecided and wrong picks together is also misleading. The AutoCAD is clearly much better, the fact many of the blog readers (I presume mostly SketchUp users) couldn't tell which was which is irrelevant.

    Well that's my point, the supposed Acad PDF was not even from AutoCAD to begin with. It was made with the online DWG viewer. I would also bet that the DWG file was produced in SU Layout. A completely biased "test" either by design or sheer ignorance.
