Hello. Recently I've been trying to start learning Revit and boy now I appreciate ARCHICAD so much. The very first thing I was struggling with was Doors and Windows. We all know the blessed variety of ARCHICAD in this task. You go to the library and you can easily create almost every type of them. See photo for example:
While in Revit you have to either create them on your own or download them from BIM Object Website. But the thing was I couldn't find any good doors or windows like in ARCHICAD. I'd love to have all these elements added in Revit too. Could someone help me with that? Thanks in advance!

The problem with downloading from window / door companies or bimobject is they are so bloated that it slows down the file tremendously so the only option is to make it from scratch. It took me a while to make all that. Take a look at Twiceroadsfool door file that you can reverse engineer on how he makes a good set. The last time I used revit was 2019 so, it might have change since then.

I started learning revit. Hated it. Then started learning Archicad. Didnt love it too much either because of its perceived quirks as a new user. Then went back to Revit and found out that anything you could do in Archicad could be done in Revit, but in a more convoluted and obscure way. Then came back to Archicad and havent looked back.
Good to know because every so often when wrestling with something that should be simple I wonder if I chose the wrong software. Good to hear from someone who has used both that the grass isn't greener on the other side.
