It seems like architects jumped on board with Revit®-based software from the beginning because it helps them produce more detailed designs and really doesn't add a lot of additional work. However, engineers have traditionally avoided the switch from AutoCAD® to Revit. In this roundtable, we will discuss the benefits of using Revit from both the architectural and engineering point of view. Architects can explain why engineers need to use Revit and engineers can defend sticking with AutoCAD. Construction managers can also weigh in on why it helps when the engineer produces a 3D model.
- Discuss the benefits of engineers who are using Revit to produce a 3D model
- Discuss why architects won't hire engineers who can't or won't use Revit
- Discuss how engineers can help architects when they use Revit
- Discuss why it helps when engineers produce a 3D model
