Revit BIM software helps architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) teams create high-quality buildings and infrastructure. Use Revit to:
Model shapes, structures, and systems in 3D with parametric accuracy, precision, and ease
Streamline documentation work, with instant revisions to plans, elevations, schedules, and sections as projects change
Empower multidisciplinary teams with specialty toolsets and a unified project environment
Why use Revit?
Run projects more efficiently - Ease production burdens by using built-in automation for documenting design and managing deliverables.
Unify teams and workflows - Save, sync, and share model-based BIM and CAD data in Revit and connect multidisciplinary teams and workflows.
Take command of your design data - Use Revit as the data backbone of your BIM process. Develop and deploy standards, workflows, and content.
What can you do with Revit?
Quickly define and document design intent With tools for sketching, scheduling, annotating, and document production, Revit drives efficient BIM workflows and includes specialized tools and automation for every AEC discipline.
Connect seamlessly with project teams Autodesk supports the way AEC project teams work together anytime, anywhere. With Revit cloud worksharing and Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro, keep your teams in sync and your projects on track.
Explore, iterate, and refine design decisions With integrated analysis tools and interoperability support for a broad range of CAD and BIM tools, Revit helps project teams uncover insights and drive outcomes with data.
Electrical preliminary load analysis Electrical engineers and designers working in Revit can now leverage an architect’s PDF, DWG™, or Revit geometry to perform preliminary load calculations earlier in the design process—prior to modeling electrical equipment.
New workflow for structural analytical modeling (AEC Collection Exclusive) Get control over analytical modeling. Associate analytical model elements with physical geometry or automate creation of analytical elements from the physical model and its properties. Define hierarchies, tolerances, and openings for floors and walls, and sync the analytical model with changes to the physical model as design evolves.
Interoperability improvements with FormIt Pro Link FormIt AXM files in Revit, improving early-stage design interoperability with FormIt Pro. Use the 3D Sketch feature to launch a FormIt session from Revit for linked FormIt files. Leverage the fluid modeling capabilities of FormIt to define and iterate design intent, and preview changes before sending back to Revit.
Generative Design and Dynamo enhancements Take advantage of more flexible inputs, clarity in method naming, and consistency across interfaces.
Filter schedules by sheets Use the filter by sheet option to display in a schedule only the elements and their properties that appear on a sheet. Manipulate views on the sheet to show more or less of the model, and watch the schedule update dynamically.
Show displaced elements in 2D views Adjust element position in 2D plan views to add clarity to documentation sets.
The evolving features and multi-discipline toolsets in Revit® can help every architecture, engineering, and construction professional do their best work as individuals and in teams.
Parametric components Place walls, doors, and windows in an open, graphical, and parameter-rich system for design and form-making
Worksharing Save, sync, review, and update work to a centrally shared model in the Revit project collaboration environment.
Schedules Use tables to better capture, filter, sort, display, and share project data.
Interoperability Revit imports, exports, and links with commonly used BIM and CAD file formats, including IFC, 3DM, SKP, OBJ, and more.
Annotation Communicate design intent effectively with tools for tagging, dimensioning, and illustrating in 2D and 3D.
Global parameters Embed design intent with project-wide parameters that work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
Developer tools and solutions Extend Revit functionality with Dynamo, API access, developer solutions, and BIM content on the Autodesk App Store.
Generative Design in Revit Evaluate and compare design alternatives at scale with Generative Design in Revit. Available exclusively to AEC Collection subscribers.
Visibility settings and overrides Control visibility by hiding, revealing, and highlighting building elements. Use overrides to customize appearance.
3D massing for complex form-making Create site-specific form, profile, and sketch studies within the Revit in-place massing environment, and use loadable mass families to standardize and repeat geometry within a project.
Standard and custom family content Load content from the Autodesk cloud into a Revit project or create your own libraries of building components.
Personalization and customization Customize the user interface to fit, with configurable keyboard shortcuts, ribbons, and toolbars.
