    NEWS FLASH: AUTODESK TO ACQUIRE REVIT

    Autodesk, the largest U.S. developer of architectural CAD software, has announced that it intends to purchase the Revit Technology Corporation. For two years, Revit has been producing parametric modeling software that challenged the industry leader's object modeler in both capability and ease of use. Yet in a market of architecture firms reluctant to adopt new CAD technology, neither company was achieving the growth in users it had hoped for.

    Now this David-and-Goliath competition appears to be ending in partnership. What this will mean for customers is still an open question. Will there be a combined product that out-performs (and outsells?) either of its two components? One that becomes, in the words of Revit CEO David Lemont, a "catalyst for the worldwide building industry to adopt model-based design, construction and management"? Or will an AutoCAD acquisition of Revit simply mean fewer competitive voices in the CAD software market?

    ArchitectureWeek will follow the story and report on implications as they emerge.
