3D modeling tools for design changemakers

An expansive and growing set of capabilities for architectural design in BIM

Overview

Summary

A BIM (Building Information Modeling) solution for the self-starter, Revit LT™ is a cost-effective project workhorse for the small architecture studio or solo practitioner.

  • Get all the design to documentation power of Revit at a fraction of the cost
  • Win more work where BIM is required
  • Accelerate production workflows and standardize deliverables to reduce rework

Highlights

Here’s what you can do with Revit LT.

Define & document design intent
With tools for sketching, model family creation, scheduling, annotating, and document production, Revit LT drives efficient BIM workflows for architectural design.
Grow your business around BIM
Impress clients in design review with 3D visualization and data-rich documentation, and effectively protect timelines and fees with Revit LT’s productivity and coordination tools.
The best of BIM & CAD software

Manage and integrate CAD and BIM data into clear, coordinated, and complete design deliverables. Purchase Revit LT and AutoCAD LT together in the AutoCAD Revit LT Suite and save.

What's New?

Revit LT improves interoperability, documentation efficiency, and design productivity for architectural modeling in BIM.

Filter schedules by sheets
Use filters to display schedule data corresponding to views and sheets for more accurate and fast-to-produce document sets. 
Displaced elements in 2D views

Improve visibility and clarity in documentation with the displaced elements tool, now for both 3D and 2D views.

Duplicate sheet
Accelerate documentation with the duplicate sheet dialog to reproduce title block and parameters, detailing, and views on sheets.
Snap to middle of two points

Place components, sketch, and measure quickly and accurately in 2D and 3D views with new snap to midpoint functionality.

Native PDF export

Share files easily with export and batch export of Revit LT views and sheets to 2D PDF files with user-defined naming rules.

Tapered walls

Model and modify wall profiles more quickly and with greater control for sloped and tapered walls.

Improved documentation efficiency
Easily capture and communicate design intent with improvements to scheduling and annotation tools.
Shared parameters in key schedules

Use shared parameters in key schedules to drive geometry and control visibility of model elements within Revit families.

Key Features

Parametric component design

Place walls, doors, and windows in an open, graphical, and parameter-rich system for design and form-making.

Annotation

Communicate design intent effectively with tools for tagging, dimensioning, and illustrating in 2D and 3D.

Scheduling

Use tables to better capture, filter, sort, display, and share project data.

Interoperability

Import, export, and link with commonly used CAD formats, including IFC4, Rhino, SketchUp, and OBJ.

Global parameters

Embed design intent with project-wide parameters that work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.

Visibility settings & overrides

Control visibility by hiding, revealing, and highlighting building elements. Use overrides to customize appearance.

Frequent performance upgrades

Benefit from gains in hardware and processor performance and continuous evaluation against computing benchmarks.

BIM Content Libraries

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.

Other Features

Autogenerated schedules

Automatically create building component schedules to improve the visibility of costs and quantities.

3D BIM vs. 2D design
Working in Revit LT, a 3D model-based environment, can deliver information about project design, scope, and phases when you need it.
Quantify materials
Use real-world materials with Autodesk cloud services and use Revit LT to quantify through the use of schedules.
3D design & visualization
Create 3D views to better visualize and share your designs.
High-quality documentation
Create current and coordinated design documentation.
