- Will your project be in 2D? If your project is not going to be developed in 3D or BIM, then there is no reason to use Revit.
- Will the project be developed with AutoCAD? Revit files can be converted to DWG files by using a SaveAS command. AutoCAD DWG standards then have to be setup. These additional steps can be costly if you can draft your as-builts in AutoCAD to begin with.
- Is speed an issue? Revit asks for the additional Z coordinate and this takes time.
- Revit data is parametric, if you move one wall or remove a door, the building is redrawn to adjust to the changes. As-Builts are drawings of the building as it was built and an inert drawing may be more practical for data integrity.
