A few thoughts for the day....
Careful when you say "way better". What exactly do you mean?
If you mean more precise, in some instances it can be, but what you gain in precision you loose in time (especially for residential construction).
....way better...I totally disagree. Again....provide exact comparisons of Revit vs Softplan to judge "way better". (Revit is definitely not "way faster"!)
I agree that schools teach AutoCAD, but AutoCAD is NOT Revit. Many schools teach Revit, so many users say they know Revit, but they know how to use Revit, not how to configure Revit. <-- a big difference there
So far, the reasons why you would switch are not that convincing....lol
1.It is software, so learning what button to push is easily picked up, but the setup will be a nightmare, unless you have a seasoned Revit veteran that can get your setup, templates, and families properly put together. Revit is precise to various depths of configurations, and if one item is off, you will have a hard time figuring out why it is responding the way it is.
2. Drawing roofs / soffits will be much more challenging.
3. Every item you put in a plan has to be a separate family and families are not always easily duplicated for a new use. (can be, but depends on how the family was initially built)
4. Options management, if you use it, will likely be more challenging.
5. Stairs and railings will likely be more challenging.
6. Modeling all items in a house will take you much longer. (framing, ceilings, etc)
The company I work for only uses Revit. I wish I could convince them to give Softplan a try, but that Autodesk marketing and the "industry standard tool" idea has them locked for eternity.
The Softplan roof tool alone is worth keeping Softplan as the preferred tool of choice. (I have, on many occasions, used Softplan to quickly model (15 minutes or less from scratch) a complex roof to show a co-workers how it should look.
Not because Revit can't make the roof accurate, but because to get it accurate took separate roof planes, etc. that prove difficult on initial design, unless you are a roof framing expert and know exactly how roof plans should be placed etc.
I would love to hear some valid reasons why your company wants to switch, because the two you provided should not be considered as reasons to switch.
FYI - the company in my signature is my personal company, not the company I work for.
