More ArchicadFail ramblings from the other side - Revit Wins Again.

Well, I've completed driven Archicad users insane with my ArchicadFAIL post. Some of this guys retorts show that he really doesn't know what's going on. First, if he's going to make an issue about software products that Autodesk aquired, don't you think he should acknowledge that Graphisoft was bought by Nemechek. Next, there's a lot of free Revit content out there. Why? Because it's actually pretty easy to make Revit families versus Archicrap's GDL scripting language.

Revit MEP is for engineers dumbass. Since don't have an true engineering package, their engineers are using AutoCAD anyway. Contractors not using Revit? Ah. Just figured out he's in Romania, so he hasn't see what goes on here. Archicad is 28 years old. That's not very innovative. Revit is pretty darned intuitive. As far as all of the acquisitions....who cares. Apparently Autodesk's software is so good, they can afford to invest in technologies to complement their already astounding portfolio.

I won't bore you with any more of this. I'd like to thank my partner in crime, Wes Macaulay, for stirring the hornet's nest in the first place with a post he made over there. Thanks Wes. It's fun to watch them implode from the posts. So, as long as Archicad is only being used in Romania, I think Autodesk's world domination of BIM shouldn't be impaced at all by Archistale.

While this is not the official voice of Autodesk, I think there's more than just a warning shot that's been fired across your collective bow.

what a BS post!

it's like buying the software for the marketing department.
hellooo! we are architects, and we have other criteria to evaluate a software.

1. we don't use a software because it's 'worldwide adopted'. we like to use intuitive and innovative tools.
2. Revit content is waay too expensive. Like 500 USD for some ikea models. who needs them?
3. MEP calculations done by architects? what next? we will also have to excavate and lay bricks?
4. IES, Ecotect and GBS were 'developed' by autodesk or were 'acquired'?
5. do contractors use revit? don't think so, maybe autocad. anyway, why should we choose our tools based on contractor's tools? shouldn't this be the other way around?
6. was navisworks developed by autodesk? is it free? why do I need another product to detect clashes? why can't revit do that?
7. OMG! there will be 3 million revit users out there. good thing not all of them will be architects!
8. again, autodesk product line is made 95% of products that were bought, not developed.
