Many of you may have tried it from the Labs as a Technology Preview called Project Spark. It first surfaced just over a year ago with some restricted functionality, as you would expect from a technology preview, but the deal breaker for most was the lack of file compatibility. You couldn’t open a Project Spark .rvt file in Revit. You’ll be glad to know that the final version of Revit LT is now fully compatible with all other products on the Revit platform.
The comparison matrix may give you a better idea of the differences between Revit and Revit LT. In my opinion, the key factors preventing firms already using Revit from downgrading (a reasonable percentage of licences) are:
- No worksharing
- Lack of conceptual massing, adaptive components and in place modelling
- No IFC or gbXML export
- No API interface
