Here's an interesting comparison between ArchiCAD and Revit: https://www.buildercentral.com/revit-vs-archicad/
I wouldn't buy lemonade from that guy let alone software (which is what he happens to sell seeing as he's an Autodesk reseller).
He doesn't seem to know what the hell he's talking about - particularly when it comes to ArchiCAD's capabilities.
Furthermore, his argument in favour of Revit seems to be that although ArchiCAD is "simpler" and more "straight-foward" (read : easier) to use, Revit's complexity is a boon in its favor because it allows one to do more complex things.
I've never heard a Revit user claim that its complicated spreadsheet-like interface and workflow is a benefit in its favour in working with it as a program.
He then gives a rather comical anecdote of once having observed a comparison competition between a Revit user and an ArchiCAD user in modeling a house, in which he claims the Revit user completed it in half the time the ArchiCAD user did.
He then admits that while he didn't know what the respective user skill levels were of both users in their respective programs were (something that you'd think is actually crucial information to know and having in assessing the two), he still has to conclude as a result of that that Revit was the superior program.
With such 'superior
' logic like that, we should all be beating a path to his store and reserve our Revit licenses.
