Revit for architectural design

Create more accurate and optimized designs

From concept to visualization, Revit offers features for every phase of your project. Use its powerful BIM tools to capture and communicate your creative concepts and precise design intent.

What you can do with Revit

Explore ideas and perform early analyses, using Revit to create masses

Conceptual design

Explore ideas and perform early analyses, using Revit to create masses. As your design matures, manipulate these forms to use them as the basis for more detailed architecture. Learn more about the software’s conceptual design tools

Revit lets you work in perspective

Detailed building design and documentation

Revit automatically creates more accurate floor plans, elevations, sections, 3D views, and more—all based on your specifications and updated as you design. See how Revit lets you work in perspective

Insight 360 helps optimize building performance

Building performance analysis

Optimize building performance outcomes by analyzing materials, quantities, sun position, and solar effects. Collaborate more effectively with stakeholders, and share potential costs savings to help inform design decisions. Learn how Insight 360 helps optimize building performance.

The depth cueing feature helps you communicate your design


Generate visualizations and virtual walk-throughs to explore, revise, validate, and communicate design concepts. Produce project documentation with cut-away sections, 3D views from any angle, or exploded views. See how the depth cueing feature helps you communicate your design.

Extend the power of Revit

Revit works with complementary products and services that help expand your ability to conceptualize design, analyze and interate, and create visualizations.

Sketch, collaborate, analyze, and revise early-stage design concepts, then export them to Revit. Work smarter from the start with BIM-based conceptual design.

Use Revit models and Insight 360 to conduct simulations that help you understand which design elements can lead to better building outcomes.

Take advantage of virtually infinite computing power to create photorealistic and high-resolution images to convey and share your designs.


Bring your Revit models to life with fast click-to-cloud tools. Transform Revit models into interactive visualizations that you can present, or share with others.


Explore more Revit design options. Create visual logic to evaluate parametric conceptual designs and automate tasks in Revit.

Renzo Piano Building Workshop: High-quality design

Renzo Piano Building Workshop successfully implemented BIM with all partners involved in the construction of the Cachan Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS Cachan).

"BIM . . . helped to significantly improve the quality of our design by removing potential spatial positioning conflicts between different buildings in the planning phase, long before they would have become a problem during construction." —Hélène Gobert, Director of Construction Project, Cachan Ecole Normale Supérieure
