Now an IFC file can be linked into an existing Revit project.
Use the new Link IFC tool to link an IFC file to the current project. If you later change the IFC file and reload the project, the project updates to reflect the changes. Linked geometry has much better fidelity and associated parameters come into the Revit environment with the correct values and units.
Use interference checking to scan your Revit model for collisions between elements.
Revit Server helps project teams in different locations to more easily collaborate on shared Revit models across a wide-area network (WAN).
This Revit feature helps you 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.
Revit 2015 has been certified by BuildingSMART International for IFC version 2x3 Coordination View import and export.
The components of Revit 2015 software—Revit Architecture 2015, Revit Structure 2015, and Revit MEP 2015—have been certified by BuildingSMART International for Industry Foundation Class (IFC) version 2x3 Coordination View 2.0 export.
The structural analytical model in Revit software can be bi-directionally linked with Robot Structural Analysis Professional software.
With bidirectional linking, your analysis results will automatically update your model. Parametric change technology coordinates those updates throughout your model views and construction drawings. Revit also links to third-party structural analysis and design programs, facilitating the exchange of structural analytical information. The types of information that can be shared include:
