Features

Highlights

Learn about Revit® features for BIM, the intelligent model-based method for planning, designing, constructing, and managing buildings and infrastructure. Revit supports multidiscipline design collaboration.

Generative design

Quickly produce design alternatives based on goals and constraints you define. Available exclusively to AEC Collection subscribers.

Parametric components

An open, graphical system for design and form-making, and the basis for all building components designed in Revit.

Worksharing

Contributors from multiple disciplines can share and save their work to the same centrally shared file.

Schedules

Create a tabular display of model information extracted from the properties of the elements in a project.

Interoperability and IFC

Revit imports, exports, and links your data with commonly used formats, including IFC4.

Add-ins

Extend Revit functionality with API access, third-party solutions, add-ins, and a content library on the Autodesk App Store.

Annotation

Communicate designs more effectively with WYSIWYG editing and features that let you control text appearance.

Dynamo for Revit

Expand and optimize BIM workflows with an open-source graphical programming interface that installs with Revit.

Global parameters

Embed design intent with projectwide parameters that work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.

More features

Architectural design

Analysis with Insight

Optimize building performance with centralized access to performance data and advanced analysis engines.

Conceptual design tools

Sketch and create freeform models and create massing studies.

Architectural modeling

Add architectural elements to the building model, including walls, doors, windows, and components.

3D design visualization

Explore, validate, and communicate designs. Render more quickly and accurately with Autodesk Raytracer rendering engine.

Cloud rendering

Produce photorealistic visualizations without tying up your desktop or using special rendering hardware.

Multistory stairs

Quickly create and modify multistory buildings by connecting stairs to the levels in your project.

Point cloud tools

Connect laser scans directly to the BIM process to author an as-built model.

Structural engineering & fabrication

Reinforcement detailing

Create 3D reinforcement designs for cast-in-place and precast concrete structures. Produce reinforcement shop drawing documentation with rebar schedules.

Physical and analytical model

Create a physical model for coordination and documentation and an associated analytical model for structural analysis.

Structural steel modeling

Model connections with a higher level of detail using a variety of parametric steel connections in Revit or by creating your own custom steel connections.

Bidirectional linking with analysis

Integrate analysis results into the BIM process and work in an iterative design workflow.

Dynamo for structural engineering

Dynamo gives structural engineers, designers, and detailers tools to build structures with minimal energy, and make their own design tools.

Linking with steel fabrication

Interoperability between Revit and Advance Steel helps provide a seamless BIM workflow from steel design to fabrication.

MEP engineering & fabrication

HVAC design and documentation

Design complex duct and pipe systems to express intent, and model duct and pipe systems with mechanical design content.

Insight integration

Insight lets you optimize building performance with centralized access to performance data and advanced analysis engines.

Electrical design & documentation

Design, model, and document electrical systems. Keep track of electrical loads throughout the distribution system.

Plumbing design & documentation

Create sanitary plumbing systems with sloped piping and layout piping systems to design and document intent.

MEP fabrication detailing

Create fabrication-ready models in Revit. You can model and coordinate MEP LOD 400 components.

Fabrication service conversion

Use the Design to Fabrication tool to convert design-level model elements to construction level-of-detail elements.

Construction

Import/Export 2D sheets

Bring AutoCAD files in or out of Revit, and prepare sheet sets for export to fabricators, subcontractors, or other project stakeholders in the format they need.

Construction coordination

Upload Revit models into BIM 360 Glue and sync with BIM 360 Layout. View and share point sets in the BIM 360 Glue web interface or the BIM 360 Layout iPad app.

Construction modeling

Derive construction insight from design models. Split and manipulate wall layers and concrete pours, and prepare shop drawings for fabrication.

Navisworks interoperability

Open a Navisworks coordination model directly in Revit to coordinate your design with the work of teams who use different software.

Constructability details

Augment design intent models with the detail necessary to meet the requirements of construction teams.

Fabrication for structural engineering

Link to Advance Steel for steel detailing and fabrication to help accelerate design-to-steel construction.
