Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an integrated process for sharing all information related to the project in a single and accessible model. This process enables collaboration and ensures accuracy and efficiency as each discipline builds their relevant elements directly into the model, creating a complete and data-rich virtual representation of the project.
Revit was developed to allow AEC professionals to design and document a building by creating a parametric, 3D model including the geometry and other required information to construct a building. The data-rich environment allows for information to be embedded into each element, enabling scheduling and estimating objects to be tracked in the 3D environment.
Revit is the most widely used BIM technology and the flagship AEC product of Autodesk®, the longtime industry leader. Autodesk commands a significant market share, backing up this market leadership with an abundance of training opportunities and trained support specialists. A single platform allows real-time collaboration and integration among diverse disciplines on a project.
Autodesk’s product portfolio and market share promotes a robust development path for every product in its line, regularly releasing new and updated tools and functionality for the platform. As the industry standard, Revit file formats mean interoperability and integration with a wide variety of complementary technologies.
Adoption is increasing for Revit residential building software due to the benefits of the BIM process. BIM integrates 3D design with scheduling and estimating, both vital stages in construction, especially in the face of labor shortages and restricted profit margins. Revit is the most versatile and scalable platform on the market today.
