2011 Electrical Setting: Run Calculations for Loads in Spaces - The #Revit Clinic

I always wonder as I make Revit MEP posts as to whether Revit Architecture users are telling their engineers that they have to make the switch (no pun intended) to Revit MEP from AutoCAD.  After all, wouldn't you want to have them working live in your model so you can reduce coordination conflicts?  What would be the point to working in Revit and having your engineers work in 2D.  How much time do you lose each year answering RFIs from the GC and subs as to coordination conflicts up in the ceiling.  Are your engineers telling you it's too expensive for them to make the switch?  What if when they told you that, you told them you'd bill them for every hour you have to spend resolving MEP conflicts on your projects.  I'm sure that would get their attention.  

Just something to think about on ThanksBIMing Day.
