I ask: "But why?"
He responds: "Uh... I don't know... it just does".
Oh it is an ongoing saga. Is it really worth trying to force those non-believers into believing? I say it's not. I have yet to hear a plausible argument behind the idea "Revit Sucks!".
A couple of the posts on that discussion I would like to pick apart:
- "As a schematic generator and scheduling, it's great. I'm not to keen on it for C.D.s"
Definitely never used the program before.
- "Archicad is more flexible and was the innovator..."
- "Would be perfect if it was command based"
- "Projects with curves, non-standard wall assemblies, complex curtain walls, i.e. most of the stuff that makes architecture fun, is not so easy with Revit. You may as well use a good 3d model (rhino because of its acad compatibility seems like the best option these days) and adapt plans, sections, elevations, and details to documents in 2d. and in regards to who is using the program, i found its greatest proponents to be students and firm principals, both of whom have had little to no real world, hands-on project experience with the technology. not to say that revit will not become the industry standard. if clients and contractors begin to demand it, it goes without saying that it will be the future, but it will also have major implications for the way we design. (similar to the way acad changed design in the nineties.)"
First off, that was impossible to read without the use of capitol letters. Secondly, you just don't get it! People like that last response will never get it. It is not worth it to try to make them get it. Out of all the nonsense in that last response the idea that Revit will change design for the worse boggles my mind.
I want all of my readers and followers to remember that these arguments are simply not worth it. Become an intelligent building modeler along with your ambition and your creativity and your actions will speak much louder.
Do not let people like that bring you down... The Revitlution is stronger than that! Muwahaha.
