What does Revit software do?

Revit is software for Building Information Modeling. Revit supports a multidiscipline design process for collaborative design. Its powerful tools let you use the intelligent model-based process to plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

Design
Model building components, analyse systems and structures, and iterate designs. Generate documentation from Revit models.

Collaborate
Coordinate projects better—reducing clashes and rework—with collaborators from all building disciplines accessing centrally shared models.

Visualize
Communicate design intent with easy to understand 3D models and use models to create high-impact visuals.

Multidiscipline BIM platform
In the BIM process, multiple team members can work on the same project at the same time in a centrally shared model. Revit has features for all disciplines involved in a building project, so everyone can use the same software, putting the project at the center and connecting participants in the building design and construction process. When architects, engineers, and construction professionals work on one unified platform, the risk of data translation errors can be reduced and the design process can be more predictable.

The Autodesk commitment to interoperability
Revit helps you work with members of an extended project team. It imports, exports, and links your data with commonly used formats, including IFC, DWG™ and DGN.
Autodesk believes that AEC professionals need to be able to use any application from any vendor at any stage in design, construction, and operations processes. Autodesk is committed to advancing interoperability throughout the industry by supporting buildingSMART International and with Revit add-ins that enhance your ability to conform to interoperability standards and meet owner delivery requirement.

Autodesk Revit for architects

Use Revit to take an idea from conceptual design to construction documentation within a single software environment. Sketch freely, create 3D forms quickly, and manipulate forms interactively. The software creates floorplans, elevations, sections, 3D views and more all based on your specifications as you design. Optimize building performance outcomes by analysing materials, quantities, sun position, and solar effects. Generate stunning visualizations and walk-throughs to effectively communicate your designs.

Autodesk Revit for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers

Design MEP building systems with greater accuracy and in better coordination with architectural and structural components, using coordinated and consistent information in the intelligent model. Design, model, and document building systems in the context of a full building information model, including architectural and structural components. Conduct simulations and interference detection earlier in the design process. Use conceptual energy analysis data for engineering-driven calculations. Model for MEP fabrication with tools that automate the fabrication model layout. Prepare a model for detailed coordination of fabrication and installation.

Autodesk Revit for structural engineers

Use tools specific to structural design to create intelligent structure models in coordination with other building components. Evaluate how well they conform to building and safety regulations. Conduct structural analysis and export to analysis and design applications with the analytical model while you create the physical model in Revit. Connect steel design and detailing workflows. Define design intent for a higher level of detail for steel connections in the Revit model. Model 3D concrete reinforcement in an advanced BIM environment.

Autodesk Revit for construction professionals

Evaluate constructability and design intent before construction begins. Gain a better understanding of the means, methods, and materials, and how they all come together. Use Autodesk Revit models to coordinate information to improve office-to-field efficiency, quality assurance, and quality control. Increase construction site layout productivity. Model steel connections with a higher level of detail. Use tools to better connect structural design to detailing, helping reduce time to fabrication. Use integrated content from fabrication products to convey intent beyond the design phase. Create models ready for fabrication and building systems installation.
