    I'm not sure I understand the end goal. This seems like a waste of overhead. What is her reasoning for this?

    I dont hate AutoCAD, contrary to popular misconception. Good AutoCAD files that are set up correctly are works of art, in their own right. But what comes out of Revit for AutoCAD is no more valuable than a cursory background. They are TERRIBLE working files.
    The opposite is also true

    Hmm. Well, I stand by that. Revit exports vs native built CAD files, the Revit exports are complete ****.

    They were never meant for anything more than or anything but "background drawings files"... Further import/export of/to CAD was a necessary evil, necessary to break into the market.

    100% agree. Completely different universe.

    edit - just to add, I was referring to cad files being almost useless in Revit, same as Revit exports are junk to autocad.

    Not sure who you're responding to with this, but it's definitely symptomatic of most non-native software exports.

    I remember a marketing message that suggested Revit made better DWG that AutoCAD. After my first export I realized that was a slight misrepresentation... that or an outright lie.
