Key features of Revit

The evolving features, capabilities, and toolsets in Revit® serve every architecture, engineering, and construction discipline to work more productively in BIM (Building Information Modeling).

Parametric components

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

Worksharing

Save, sync, review, and update work to a centrally shared model within the Revit unified project collaboration environment.

Schedules

Use tables to better define, filter, sort, and communicate information from the model.

Interoperability

Revit imports, exports, and links with commonly used CAD formats, including IFC4, Rhino, SketchUp, OBJ, and more.

Annotation

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

Global parameters

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

Developer tools and solutions

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

Generative Design in Revit

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

Visibility settings and overrides

Control visibility and appearance of elements in a view to hide, reveal, and highlight building elements. Use overrides to customize appearance.

3D massing for complex form-making

Create site-specific form, profile, and sketch studies within the Revit in-place massing environment and use loadable mass families to standardize and repeat geometry within a project.

Standard and custom family content

Load family content from the Autodesk cloud into a Revit project or create your own libraries of building products, mechanical components, and more.

Personalization and customization

Customize the Revit user interface to meet your work style or apply office standards, with custom keyboard shortcuts, ribbons, toolbars, and more.

What’s new in Revit

The latest release of Revit building design software provides better interoperability, improves efficiency and accuracy of document production, and delivers on many user-requested features.

More features of Revit

Architectural design

Conceptual design tools

Articulate form in the Revit massing environment with freeform tools for profiling and massing and refine geometry parametrically in the project environment.


AEC Collection only

Analysis with Insight

Use advanced simulation engines and building performance data integrated in Revit to assess daylighting, whole building energy, heating and cooling loads, and more.


Architectural modeling

Add architectural elements to the building model, including walls, doors, and windows, or define custom components and families to meet any modeling need and level of detail.


Point cloud tools

Use scanning tools to capture existing and as-built conditions and import into Revit as point clouds.


3D design visualization

Explore, validate, and communicate design decisions visually. Revit renders with high quality and precision through the Autodesk Raytracer rendering engine.


Multistory stairs

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


Cloud rendering

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


Structural engineering and fabrication

Physical and analytical model

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


Reinforcement detailing

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


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 and fabrication

MEP Systems Analysis

Systems Analysis optimizes your HVAC systems design and modeling, letting you make data-driven design decisions. 


HVAC design and documentation
