AutoCAD 3D vs Revit for Structural Plans and Renderings
CheSyn posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' AreaI have extensive experience with AutoCAD - but I would like to start learning/using Revit. The majority of use would be for residential applications. From my understanding, Revit is mainly used for floor plans, leaving "space" for building materials, but not placing materials themselves. A client has asked for a 3D rendering of a proposed deck on his house (for visualization and "instructions"), as well as orthographic 2D plans to submit for permits. I have done this many times with AutoCAD, but was wondering if this was a task Revit could help expediate. Am I better off layering a 3D AutoCAD drawing with all materials sized and placed appropriately, or is this a task Revit would excel at? Thank you in advance for any insight and advice.
