So, how is Archicad better than Revit? Open BIM. At the end of the day, or actually, right now in the middle of the day, it's all about collaboration, sharing, interoperability and workflow. Archicad, being more nimble and agile, and not being weighed down by AutoCAD, has created an allegiance with buildingSmart International and making their files easier to share and work with others. Will this be the downfall of Autodesk with a much more proprietary file type? Archicad is much further ahead on IFC and Autodesk should have been working on that a lot more.
