This one is aimed mainly at the architecture guys & contractors who use structural drawings day in day out.

Now that most structural engineering firms are using Revit with anger has anyone noticed that the standard of drawing output has dropped compared to AutoCAD?

Is there a tendancy for structural technicians being lazy with their sections & details?

We all know the program is up to the job but has it had an adverse effect on the attitude of the technician?

I would not call it "tendency to be lazy".  The game has changed and none of the current technicians have had the 10+ years experience in Revit as they have with AutoCAD.  To get going with framing and tagging is fairly easy in Revit.  To get it look good and correct is a little harder and to get it looking perfect is quite hard - though I manage Smile!  Just think about the levels of overrides you need to keep an eye on:  Object styles / Materials - Visibility overrides - Phasing - Filters - Manual overrides - Physical cover (above/below) - Draw order - Line styles... the list goes on.  One of my first "disclaimers" when presenting or "selling" Revit is "Your drawings will not look the same".
