Overview video

 

Revit® BIM software delivers tools for architectural design, MEP engineering, structural engineering, and construction, and enables coordination between disciplines.

 

 

Features

 

 

Platform
 
Global parameters

Global parameters

Help embed design intent in a model by using project-wide parameters to drive dimension and element instance parameters with the new Global Parameters feature. Measure dimensions and calculate formulas to drive dimensions and parameter values in other elements in the project.

(Video: 1:36 min.)

Improved software performance

Improved software performance

Work more efficiently with faster software.

Experience significantly improved Revit performance with multiple behind-the-scenes optimizations and improvements to over 100 functions.

(Video: 1:25 min.)

Family Visibility Preview

Family Visibility Preview

Get a better view of design intent by filtering out geometries that are not viewed. Work more quickly by previewing geometries and making adjustments before loading a Family into a project. The preview visibility window allows you to view it when cut into an element and when not.

(Video: 0:39 sec.)

Modernized text layout and editing

Modernized text layout and editing

Communicate designs more effectively with new “what you see is what you get” editing and features that give you more control over text, including:

  • Edit in-canvas
  • Set all text to upper- or lower-case
  • Add spaces between bullets
  • Create lists with multiple levels, indents, and numbers

 

(Video: 0:54 sec.)

More flexible Annotation Tags

More flexible Annotation Tags

Document projects more consistently and accurately with annotations that allow calculated values and obey pin restrictions. Create a tag with a calculation in it and use it with any tag type. When you reposition an element, a pinned tag remains in place while its leader adjusts to accommodate the new position of the element.

Video (0:44 sec.)

BIM interoperability

BIM interoperability

Work more efficiently with members of your extended project team. Revit imports, exports, and links your data with commonly used formats, including DWG™, DXF™, DGN, and IFC. Export your building model or site, complete with critical metadata, to AutoCAD Civil 3D civil engineering software and import models from Inventor 3D mechanical design software.

(Video: 0:42 sec.)

Bidirectional associativity

Bidirectional associativity

Minimize errors and omissions with the ability to store all model information in a single coordinated database. Revisions and alterations to information are automatically updated throughout the model. The Revit parametric change engine automatically coordinates changes made anywhere—in model views, drawing sheets, schedules, sections, and plans.

Parametric components

Parametric components

Express design intent at increasingly detailed levels using parametric components. The basis for all building components designed in Revit, parametric components offer an open, graphical system for design and form-making.

Worksharing

Worksharing

Enable teams to choose a more effective way to collaborate and interact based on their workflow and project requirements. Worksharing distributes the power of the parametric building modeling environment across the project team. Users of Revit software from multiple disciplines can share the same intelligent building information model and save their work to a central file.

Schedules

Schedules

Create a table-based view of the information in your model. A schedule is a tabular display of information, extracted from the properties of the elements in a project. Create a schedule at any point in the design process. As you make changes to the project that affect the schedule, it automatically updates to reflect those changes.

Dynamo graphical programming interface

Dynamo graphical programming interface

Enhance and extend model behavior without having to know how to program. Dynamo provides a visual programming environment that is accessible to designers, letting you visually create logic that drives the geometry and behavior of Revit elements and data.

(Video: 1:08 min.)

Revit Server

Revit Server

Help project teams collaborate more easily on shared Revit models across a wide-area network (WAN) using Revit Server. Maintain an integrated collection of central Revit models on a single server that can be accessed from local servers. Built-in redundancy helps provide protection in case of WAN connectivity loss.

A360 Collaboration for Revit

A360 Collaboration for Revit

Connect building and construction project teams with centralized access to BIM project data in the cloud with a subscription to A360 Collaboration for Revit. Stay connected in real time using the Communicator chat tool within models.

(Video: 0:50 sec.)

Autodesk Exchange add-in applications

Extend Revit functionality with add-ins and an expanded content library on Autodesk Exchange. Buy and install directly from the web into your active Revit session to more efficiently author data-rich Building Information Models.

Combine Parameters

Combine Parameters

Document projects with greater accuracy by combining parameters in a schedule to display the values in a single cell.  Specify a prefix, suffix, sample value, and separator to display with each parameter.

(Video: 0:59 sec.)

Architectural Design

 

Depth Cueing

Depth Cueing

Add depth to elevations and sections to create stunning visuals that better communicate your design. Use depth cueing with shadows on realistic, hidden lines, sketchy lines, ambient shadows, anti-aliasing and more. Control where the depth starts, stops, and define limits to add pop to elevations and sections in either architecture or coordination views.

(Video: 0:46 sec.)

Improved Railing Placement

Improved Railing Placement

Model railings that more closely represent how they will be built by hosting them on the slope, curvature, or elevation of elements such as the top of wall, floors, and roofs.

(Video: 0:47 sec.)

Conceptual design tools

Conceptual design tools

Sketch, create free-form models more easily, and manipulate forms interactively. Define forms and geometry as real building components for a smoother transition to design development and documentation. Revit automatically builds a parametric framework around your forms as you design, offering greater levels of control, accuracy, and flexibility.

FormIt 360 Converter

FormIt 360 Converter

Convert conceptual designs created in FormIt 360 to Revit files with the Formit 360 Converter provided with Revit and continue to develop your designs in Revit. Convert SKP, RFA and FormIt files for a fully integrated BIM workflow.

(Video: 1:04 min.)

3D design visualization

3D design visualization

Get a deeper understanding of how a project works before it’s built with 3D visualizations in Revit. Explore complex organic forms, study how light interacts with a design, validate a design for planning and public outreach, and market a building before breaking ground.

Work in perspective

Work in perspective

Improve productivity with the capability to make adjustments in perspective views. Make quick changes without changing views. Use editing tools to Move, Align, Pin, and Unpin and now also Cut and Paste. The Reset Target tool restores the position of the camera target to the center of the field of view. Toggle between the perspective and parallel representations of the 3D view.
