Autodesk is always looking for ways to communicate with Architects (not an easy job) and they are developing another. It is called Diana. They have observed that architects and engineers have a difficult time figuring out which Autodesk product would be best suited for their design needs. So here is a stab at answering the question

Should I buy Autodesk Revit Building or Autodesk Architectural Desktop?

To take a sneak peak of the beta version before it is launched to the public next week, go to: (Remember, she i?s in beta, and you may find a few glitches.)

I took a look and found it informative albeit on the simplistic side of things, but I have been doing this for a while, so you may not find it that basic. Diana will talk with you and ask you some questions about your environment and then propose a solution. It does a very good job of leading you through some of the issues that you need to consider. It does a good job of making BIM understandable to the novice.

Many Architects struggle to know whether they should be using Revit or ADT and this might be helpful in thinking it through.

I also suggest you talk to your reseller and ask their advice.

I have posted some items to think about on this blog before and you may want to check them out.
