Arch/Planning practice w/focus on streetscape<>bldg interface + small subdivisions design on hilly terrains.
No actual Civil engineering, but detailed approvals work includes street/bldgs-interface planning: Detailed street, parking, stormwater portrayals critical.
Also, good portrayal of graded cut/fill/ret.walls design (much topo modification).
Way more 2D over 3D, yet 3D critical to verify design. Aside from above, require BIM for multi-story elevations & occasional MEP work.
Revit, Archicad, & many others ALL can do these tasks. But I need a program which is FACILE & USER-FRIENDLY in performing them.
Considering Archicad over Revit (based on research so far) but remain very open.
Experienced user opinions welcome !
FYI, never used Autocad. Will NOT do gradual transition: instead intense 3 week "cold turkey" transition. (too many new projects to straddle old w/ new program)
