Bill,

 

What's the structural package that you use with that?  Or does it have a stand-alone structural program?

 

I considered upgrading as you have, and I may have made a huge mistake by not doing so.  If you don't mind, please let us know how your adventures into the uncharted jungles go.

I bit the bullet and upgraded to Revit Structure Suite. I incredibly dubious not only whether this will help me do a better job within budget but also whether this feeble old brain (which survived the 60s BTW) can absorb a new CAD package after working with AutoCAD for, gulp, 17 years! Holy crap! Has it been that long?

 

Of course, to earn the nickname my wife’s family has given me (Uncle “Worst Case Scenario” Bill), the “Suite” part includes AutoCAD 2008 which means I will at least get rid of the odd numbered version aka ACAD 2007 (I still get tremors when I hear “ACAD R13”) and will be able to at least move to Revit by evolution rather than revolution.

 

I’m scheduled for training class January 28th-30th, 2008.

 

Wish me luck. I’m going to need it.
