.. Not only that I don't think I've ever seen £1000 worth of improvements from one years upgrades, a few tweaks here and there normally, and alot of the time fixing and adding things that really should have been there in the first place.
the most poignant nugget it a post that I could not agree more with. A lot of good points on this thread, and wouldnt you know it. as soon as the questions got a little tough, the Autodesk respondants bail out.
to the above point,
We are a small commercial/residential design firm and from 2010 to 2012, the only upgrade we've leveraged has been the Create Parts feature. not exactly worth the two years of subscription fee.
Why not make these types of 'improvements' a plug-in that users could opt to purchase rather than force the entire community to cough up for upgrades that lately seem to focus on interoperability and collaboration.
took a minute to validate my point by poking around and made it over to David Light's blog, http://autodesk-revit.blogspot.com, and was enlightened as to a few functions I had not uncovered yet and can foresee utilizing. but as not to totally recant, the differences between 2010 and 2011 by no stretch validate an entirely new release.
