>AutoCAD is like 20 years old and is still by far the most popular tool for architecture and industrial design>"state of the art" "BIM" software Revit isn't even capable of chamfering a corner and literally punishes you for importing CAD geometry>tfw forced to use this piece of shit programPic related; something that never fucking happens in Revit because everything looks like ass.
AutoCAD came out in 1982. It's34 years old.
Revit is a great program.Are you sure you are not an idiot?
>>522665Okay, smartass. Try to make a curved object that is bending (Iike a potato chip or a chair seat) and has rounded corners. If you know how to use Revit, you won't even bother wasting your time because you would know it's impossible to have a form like that without importing geometry.
>>522661>AutoCADPig disgusting, but I say it from mechanical engineer perspective. Don't understand why people still use it, nearly everything it does comes as in-built features in other programs.
>>522661autoCAD is stil only popular becuase large companies fall for the autodesk meme and get serious discounts and priorty tech support for their sped employees cos they buy like 50 subs worth of ittell me one fucking thing you can do in autocad that you cant do in sketchup and layout also autocad fucking retards that go to school for architecture then never learn how to make their models properly so its just lines on top of lines then when you try to bring it into any program to make a 3d model of it they look like shit, and the original designer just goes "hurr i didnt know there was so many lines there sorry!"fuckingcancer shit on my assarevit is good too
>>522661>that hideous "architecture"
>>523843autocad is for 2dbtw, autocad is more commonly used in engineering, rather than architecture
>>522667curved elements are in fact one of the major functionalities in revit
>>523843Sketchup is garbage and has garbage interactability with other software.It's not a real CAD application. All it does is make a poly mesh and hide the wireframe from you. When you export this to any other application it looks like garbage, and rightfully so.
>>525034heard 1 house was built had walls to 560 directions
Worked in a practice last year, where we did one project just in Revit and another in AutoCAD, 3DS etc (i.e "the old way"). The second method required exactly 3 times the amount of time and twice the number of people. It's so fucking stupid.
>>525319Revit is good for shitting out a set of drawings as quickly as possible, but it's not so good for modelling complex objects. Especially in families (excluding the massing families, which have features that permit creating more complex forms).
>>525326Just make it in Rhino and import it m8. Also, most of the people crying about Revit's inability to create "muh complex form" are meme-tier Gehry wannabes.
>>525349I'm not a memer, I know you can use import geometry as guides fot walls and roofs by face. I just was working on furniture families where the client requested the maximum amount of precision. In those cases, it's not so easy. Like I said, half the problems would be eliminated if autodesk implemented proper chamfer corner functions into revit that actually work so I don't have to spend hours trying to make a void sweep only to realize it's never going to cut.
>>525349This. Structural engineer here.We use rhino + robot (or other Fe) + revit to crunch designs without dicking around, and to deal with design changes quickly and efficiently.The only gripe is that autodesk Jews you into their environment like apple does.Fuck that.Also. No one gives a fuck about Pringles chairs or whatever. Do some real work.
