    My brothers, friends, uncles, roomates, sisters, co-workers, nephew who works for Autodesk told me that 2012 is going to have the ability to read your mind, print in 3D and use the new 3D TVs. Cool huh! I can't wait!!!

For the students learning Revit at UW however I think it was a great upgrade. I think for new users it was a great addition to Revit and made it a little easier to jump into Revit and start using it.
    And I thought that the upgrades to the Ribbon setup in 2011 from 2010 were a big improvement. The Ribbon and tab-switching also seemed to run faster in 2011, obviously they clean up the code as they go along.

    Actually, I heard that it doesn't need architects at all... Just spits out designs on the fly.

I dont recall if they are doing the same thing with feature lists, and releasing them slightly early, or if theyre only releasing them on the date of the actual shipment.

    Rest assured, that ANYONE telling you ANYTHING right now, is doing one of two things: Massively Violating NDA agreements, or misleading you in to thinking they have information to give away, that they dont really have. That goes for "speculation" about "upcoming AutoCAD features coming to Revit." Collectively, *WE* should not be making ANY statements regarding any potential new features.
    That's a noble sentiment. This thread already has over 560 views - inquiring minds want to know...

    Phew... at least you will still need drafters, Architects have always been optional. All they do is sit in meetings anyways.

    Whoa! I went to elementary school in Laramie & jr. high / high school in Cheyenne. Moved away to go to college, but lots of friends wound up going to UW.

    Sorry, I think this is the first time I've seen Wyoming + Revit together.

    The entire point of the NDA and the Safe Harbor statements are to prevent a bad situation where someone gets over excited ASSUMING they know whats coming, and bets a financial decision like a large purchase, on such a thing.

    Plus, NO ONE actually knows whats shipping in the next release, since the FACTORY doesnt know yet. All throughout Beta testing, they alert all beta testers that ANY feature seen MAY NOT MAKE IT TO RELEASE. So there is NO WAY anyone that posts knows anything definitive. Soooo, no one should post about it until they release the information.

    My, my...how politically correct and administrative you are becoming .

    It's fun to speculate but people who have seen the "future" aren't allowed to say and the "factory" certainly isn't going to speculate publicly, early. If you watch the Autodesk blogs you can get a glimpse of what is on their mind though.

    As I said before...we can say it won't be the same...simply repackaged. Whether what appears will make you praise or critique it will vary from user to user/firm to firm.

    Not at all. Like always, were in it for the users. If someone yells out we might get 'such and such a feature,' id hate to see some small 5 man operation knee-jerk and go drop 20 grand, expecting it to work like "that old software." Its a shaky industry right now, and- more than ever- i can see why those rules are in place. Moreso having just spent that week with the Factory.

    Its bad enough vital forums disappear for months at a time... Id hate for newbies to get sucked in to a platform change they werent ready for, because of rumors.
