[Equest-users] Revit vs. Vectorworks

Does anyone have any experience using Vectorworks to analyze energy 
performance and/or daylight? I'm hesitant to invest in Revit MEP (and 
IES VE or Green Building Studio) from everything that I've heard lately. 
I would really love, as would many of you I'm sure, a program that can 
do it all; including CFD analysis.


Thanks in advance.
