Revit MEP: Still Not Good Enough for All Your Projects

Friday, October 14th, 2011

(Part of our ongoing series comparing features in Revit MEP and Design Master to make it clear why our software is better.)

In our MEP BIM survey, we asked Revit MEP users what percentage of their projects they complete using Revit MEP. We wanted to know how much of a limitation it is to only be able to use Revit MEP with architects using Revit. (See this Autodesk discussion group post where an Autodesk employee states, “There really is not a recommended workflow where you use Revit MEP where you don’t have a Revit Architecture mode.”).

Over half (53%) use it on less than half their projects. We asked the same question last year, and the results were the same then. That’s a lot of projects still not being designed in Revit MEP!

Before you consider switching to Revit MEP, make sure you have a plan in place for handling all of your projects that won’t be done with it. Investing in a design-BIM program like Design Master HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing will allow you to more productively design those projects. Our software can be used on every single one of your projects, whether they are done by the architect in Revit, with pencil and paper, or anything in between.
