Switching from AutoCAD to Revit Structural and MEP


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


We're a consulting engineering design firm specializing in Mining. Currently we use AutoCAD 2011 but are reviewing parametric 3D design software. We have a few seats of Prosteel, Inventor and SolidWorks too.


Autodesk made a presentation of Revit Structural, MEP to us last week. It was truly impressive but I was wondering what users out there have made the switch and if so, what should we look out for? We've also looked at Bentley, SolidWorks (with Structural and Plant add-ins) and are looking at Intergraph Smartplant. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thx!

Thanks for the suggestion. We looked at Autodesk Plant 3D but found it lacking in Structural steel work. Also, our Pheonix AZ office switched to Revit and found it very easy to use.


Funny you should reply as I am writing up a report this week to compare various software we've looked at. If you have any links to reviews/reports that don't cost too much, feel free to pass along any links.


Regards, Richard Malloy
