This topic keeps coming up in our studio…

 

I view it not unlike the first generation of “Apple” products/software e.g., iPods, MacBooks, etc…

 

You gotta wait for the bugs to get worked out.

 

P.S. every architectural firm that we work for that has been using it has had nothing but problems.

 

I rest my case.

Morning everyone...

 

Im hearing nothing but negatives with the implementation of Revit Structural into SE production.  Are there any positive experiences out there?

 

I appears that everyone but Structural benefits form the use. Is it worth the expense? Granted it may be a requirement in the future, Architects may insist on it. But personally if the entire purpose to to mitigate duct and piping conflicts, we are going to raise a generation of incompetent people that will rely too heavily on the graphis program and less with whats between the ears.

 

I need some success stories.
