We are doing steel structural detailing. Now we are planning to move into 3D platform. We are now using AutoCAD Mechanical & plain AutoCAD for our drawings. We are not in manufacturing industry. We do not use Inventor. But we are confused between Revit Structure & AutoCAD Structural Detailing. Which software between that two, will be better for us? Why?

Hi. If your aim is steel detailing, then ASD would be the right choice. I would use Revit for modeling the structural steel framing elements, export to ASD or TEKLA, perform structural detailing, Export back to Revit, and you're done. 

However, there is an addin for REVIT called SDS/2 CONNECT which does steel connections in Revit. You could download it for a 30 day free trial. I have not given it a full investigation but it looks promising. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
