    I miss Revit!

    For the past month I have been working on projects in AutoCAD, instead of Revit. It has been pretty tramatic. For example, in Autocad I keep drawing viewports all over the place. Why? Because the command for a viewport is MV.

    Anyway, I am really starting to miss working in Revit. Anyone else empathize?

    I'd love to be able to work only in Revit but alas I must also use <that other program>. It took me some time to train myself to use R shortcuts in R and A shortcuts in A but I still use an incorrect keystroke occasionally then sit there and wonder why nothing happened. Oh yeah, I'm in R, not A

      I do. I get thru a story like that few months ago, thinking I could manage to produce documents with both Autocad and Revit running. In real world, it is painfull. You're disappointed with both softs, you learn nothing cause when comes an issue, you solve it by cad.
      6 months ago, I made a choice: cad will stay behind.
      It was hard sometimes, but this was MY choice. I've learned more in 6 month than in 2 years.
      Answer this question: what can't I do in Revit that I do in Autocad today?
      Make your own choice. Do it. You'll feel better.
      Good luck.

        draw a line 0.0132" long? I work with aluminum extrusions dies for curtain wall construction. I can't leave <that other program> behind, as much as I'd like to. I will admit to doing more layout for basic construction in Revit rather than <that other program> lately. More visually accurate and pleasing I'd say. Someone sent me an <that other program> 3D model this morning. GAWD, what a mess trying to navigate and get any information out of it. <that other program> sucks but some of us are stuck with it due to accuracy issues.

            with which part? And, while I'd find a trip to Nantes, France very enjoyable I don't think that I can make it anytime soon

                You would be welcome! Flight to Paris, then take a fast speed train to Nantes (2h only). You should find a reason, guess what?....2012 release in France ;-)

                BTW I've started a small thread about accuracy in Revit. I've changed a little my opinion.....

                  Don't let Dave and his vicious dog bully you. Stick to your guns Julien!!! :laugh:

                  And yes, Sarah, I fully sympathize. I still have projects in ACA that I work on. I used to love it before I knew any better. Now I curse it!! lol

                    And I was also wondering where that funny What's-his-name-again-avatar went... My condoleances, I don't even have Acad installed anymore.
