This is really sweeping me off my feet....Does anyone know how long it would take to do this in AutoCAD?

The masses would be very easy and fast to create in Autocad. Autocad has a loft tool that enables you to blend multiple profiles and you can chose to have a ruled or smooth connection between the profiles. Revit has the swept blend tool that limits you to two profiles on a path. However, once the mass has been created, Revit is much faster than autocad to convert mass faces to building components like wall and roofs.

Greg, thank you for this posting as well. Your comment is in tune with my thinking that even though you could design it in AutoCAD, how long would it take to generate your CDs.

It's a shame that there are so many AutoCAD drafters that will insist that you can only do it in AutoCAD and how fast they do their work.
Of course, accuracy, coordination and productivity get tossed out the door, but who cares other than die hard Revit fans.
