Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the differences between AutoCAD and Revit, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
So let's take a quick look at one of the major differences between AutoCAD and Revit.…Naturally this discussion could lead us down many paths, but I would like to start with…the fundamental difference in the workflow.…With all its tools and sophisticated features, at its core, AutoCAD is essentially a digital drafting board.…It does not fundamentally change the basic drafting workflow utilized by many design…professionals in any appreciable way.…In other words, before you can create drawings in AutoCAD, you have to decide what kind of…drawing you are making. Are you making the plan or a section or an elevation?…If you want to create a plan, you have to apply your personal knowledge of architectural…communication to begin creating a series of lines and curves to represent your building…design specifically as a plan.…
You then need to repeat this process to create a section or some other kind of drawing that might be required.…While in some cases you can copy and reuse parts of the drawing, they are not connected…
