As it's written in my profile I use ArchiCAD. But I see that lots of you use Revit for the same purpose (architecture design).
Are there any advantages of Revit?

Revit is Autodesk's 4D building data demonstrating programming. This capable instrument utilizes a clever model-based procedure to help design all parts of a building venture, from outline through to development and past. While Revit is a fabulous instrument for planners, its degree is immense and its tool compartment is profound - it likewise benefits engineers, manufacturers, venture chiefs and that's only the tip of the iceberg. 

ArchiCAD is a BIM programming delivered by Graphisoft and intended for indistinguishable purposes from Revit. 

There's no preventing that both from claiming these CAD alternatives are effective devices, and as usual, devoted clients of each will normally think their inclination is better. 

Revit Advantages:  immense request in the market, solid improvement stage, broadly upheld by courses and instructional exercises, more noteworthy coordination and joint effort. It is implied for design, yet additionally for structure and MEP. 

Revit Disadvantages are: it doesn't keep running on OSX, just incompletely multi-strung (so it needs the quickest CPU), document size and adaptability issues. 

Ar iCAD`s preferences and inconveniences 

It is a 3D Modeling and CAD application which enables you to draw, model and show building outlines essentially and rapidly. ArchiCAD is protest situated, which implies that it will empower you to create and alter three-dimensional questions and deliver 2D structural illustrations and 3D models of structures. 

ArchiCAD Advantages are: completely multi-strung, runs additionally on OSX, has a friendlier UI and is arranged towards designers. It has an extremely very much created help for IFC, great drafting, format approach and not too bad rendering. Likewise, it has exceptionally adaptable and proficient parametric articles (GDL objects don`t influence record estimate). 

ArchiCAD Disadvantages are: custom articles require GDL scripting, numerous old workarounds are never completely fathomed, a few expansions are never legitimately refreshed and less-utilized API. - 3D Rendering Studio
