Yesterday, I spoke with someone at a firm that offers MEP modeling services in Revit Systems v2. As much as I love the idea of having the complete model for a project in Revit (instead of dealing in ABS and Revit), I have some reservations.
I know that v1 wasn't quite ready for modeling; it lacked content and didn't efficiently support plumbing. Although we have a license to v2, I haven't had a chance to check it out.
So, where did I turn to find out if v2 was ready to support modeling? First Autodesk, then Google. And what did I find? For all intents and purposes, nothing! Autodesk has a page on features, but it didn't really tell me anything. Furthermore, I couldn't find a review of it anywhere; not in a blog, not on AECbytes, nowhere!
I'm surprised that Autodesk hasn't publicized the update more - I assumed that they would want the AEC community to know that they added more content and more features to a new software.
I'm still not sure what I'm going to do about evaluating v2; I don't have the time to test it out and review it myself. But if anyone wants to prove me wrong by finding (or writing...) a review, feel free to.
