    I heard from a bird that Autodesk is currently working on combining them into one program set so you can access any of the tools at any given time.
    But it will be clearer. Only one name: Revit. could be differentiate by subscription extensions.....
    basic tools for everyone. I vote for that.

I am a little curious why they would do this from a buisness end...right now if you want MEP tools, Structural tools, and Arch tools you have to buy each of them (Revit x3) and if they combine it it will be Revit x1 so they will be cutting their own profits...
    What I've heard from my reseller is that each Revit flavor has all three set of tools in them already. In Revit Architecture, the structural and MEP tools are disabled.

    Yep, it's all there (for instance, check the "Show Categories from All Disciplines" in the New Schedule window).

    It's my understanding from talking with some of the Revit developers that this is only somewhat true. There are core things that are shared between all three, yet when they make the build for Architecture some things are flagged to not be included. So it's not just that certain things are disabled, it's that the code isn't included at all.

    While it may appear that making one 'uber Revit' would cut into profits, I'm guessing that the number of people that actually buy all three is very low. I know people here that have, but it's not very common.

    So I bet that they would make more money getting more people to buy Revit, which turning it into an uber package would certainly do. It actually better fits the original vision of Revit anyways, and would probably be cheaper to develop & maintain. So if this is true (which I'm not saying it is, I have no idea if it is) then it would be a win-win: more marketable product, lower overhead development, and a more integrated solution for the users!

    Just to add to what Jeffrey just said (which I completely agree with), VERY few firms would buy a seat of each for a single user anyway. However, getting users to upgrade for "cheap" and locking them into additional subscription fees will make them far more money - many firms will do the upgrade (or at least some of their subscriptions) just to have the ability to use the additional software if needed... it's that "you never know when you might need it" scenario that will hook many users, even if in reality they fire it up once or twice and then rarely use it. It's marketing psychology 101.

    I think it makes sense for most architectural firms to have one seat of the Premium Suite. This will allow architects to have access to all the tools to make ductwork, etc.

    It would be better if one could buy an add-on to Revit Architecture to give it all the tools that are in Structure and MEP, though this may not be a realistic wish.

    What is the timeline for the releae of the BDS Premium upgrade? Since we had to have upgrades in place by the 16th to take advantage of it, I have heard nothing from Autodesk. I upgraded from strait Revit Arch to the Revit/Cad Suite, received the disks, and have them installed. I'm looking forward to having all the flavors of Revit and Max, which I had been considering buying anyway.
