The evolving features and multi-discipline toolsets in Revit® can help every architecture, engineering and construction professional do their best work as individuals and in teams.
Place walls, doors and windows in an open, graphical and parameter-rich system for design and form-making.
Save, sync, review and update work to a centrally shared model in the Revit project collaboration environment.
Use tables to better capture, filter, sort, display and share project data.
Revit imports, exports and links with commonly used BIM and CAD file formats, including IFC, 3DM, SKP, OBJ and more.
Communicate design intent effectively with tools for tagging, dimensioning and illustrating in 2D and 3D.
Embed design intent with project-wide parameters that work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
Extend Revit functionality with Dynamo, API access, developer solutions and BIM content on the Autodesk App Store.
Evaluate and compare design alternatives at scale with Generative Design in Revit. Available exclusively to AEC Collection subscribers.
Control visibility by hiding, revealing and highlighting building elements. Use overrides to customise appearance.
Create site-specific form, profile and sketch studies within the Revit in-place massing environment and use loadable mass families to standardise and repeat geometry within a project.
Load content from the Autodesk cloud into a Revit project or create your own libraries of building components.
Customise the user interface to fit, with configurable keyboard shortcuts, ribbons and toolbars.
New workflow for structural analytical modelling
Get control over analytical modelling. Associate analytical model elements with physical geometry or automate creation of analytical elements from the physical model and its properties. Define hierarchies, tolerances and openings for floors and walls, and sync the analytical model with changes to the physical model as design evolves. (video: 2.09 min.)
Interoperability improvements with FormIt Pro
AEC COLLECTION ONLY
Link FormIt AXM files in Revit, improving early-stage design interoperability with FormIt Pro. Use the 3D Sketch feature to launch a FormIt session from Revit for linked FormIt files. Leverage the fluid modelling capabilities of FormIt to define and iterate design intent and preview changes before sending back to Revit. (video: 1.58 min.)
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.
Analysis with Insight
AEC COLLECTION ONLY
Use advanced simulation engines and building performance data integrated in Revit to assess daylighting, whole building energy, heating and cooling loads, and more.
Add architectural elements to the building model, including walls, doors and windows, or define customised components and families to meet any modelling 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 visualisation
Explore, validate and communicate design decisions visually. Revit renders with high-quality and precision through the Autodesk Raytracer rendering engine.
Quickly create and modify multistorey buildings by connecting stairs to the levels in your project.
Produce photorealistic visualisations without tying up your desktop or using special rendering hardware.
Analytically driven modelling
Leverage accurate and versatile structural analysis tools to assess and adapt design intent as the BIM model develops. Automate analytical representation, run multiple analyses from a single BIM model, schedule data for documentation and assure quality control of structural design. New in Revit 2023.
Create 3D reinforcement designs for cast-in-place and precast concrete structures. Produce reinforcement shop drawing documentation with rebar schedules.
Structural steel modelling
Model connections with a higher level of detail using a variety of parametric steel connections in Revit or by creating your own customised 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.
Electrical preliminary load analysis
Electrical engineers and designers working in Revit can now leverage an architect’s PDF, DWG or Revit geometry to perform preliminary load calculations earlier in the design process – prior to modelling electrical equipment.
MEP Systems Analysis
Systems Analysis optimises your HVAC systems design and modelling, letting you make data-driven design decisions.
HVAC design and documentation
Design complex duct and pipe systems to express intent, and model duct and pipe systems with mechanical design content.
Electrical design and documentation
Design, model and document electrical systems. Keep track of electrical loads throughout the distribution system.
Plumbing design and 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 co-ordinate MEP LOD 400 components.
Insight lets you optimise building performance with centralised access to performance data and advanced analysis engines.
Fabrication service conversion
Use the Design to Fabrication tool to convert design-level model elements to construction level-of-detail elements.
Document model layout more effectively. Document, schedule and tag fabrication elements.
Derive construction insight from design models. Split and manipulate wall layers and concrete pours, and prepare shop drawings for fabrication.
Open a Navisworks co-ordination model directly in Revit to co-ordinate your design with the work of teams that use different software.
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.
Augment design-intent models with the detail necessary to meet the requirements of construction teams.
