Revit for architectural design

Create more accurate and optimised designs

From concept to visualisation, Revit software offers features for every phase of your project. Use its powerful BIM (Building Information Modelling) tools to capture and communicate your creative concepts and precise design intent.

What you can do with Revit

  • Building floorplan and section view

    Design and documentation

    Place intelligent elements like walls, doors and windows. Revit generates floor plans, levels, sections, schedules, 3D views and renderings.

  • Building analysis dashboard

    Analysis

    Optimise building performance early in the design process, run cost estimates and monitor performance changes over the project's and building's lifetime.

  • Rendered architectural interior

    Visualisation

    Generate photorealistic renderings. Create documentation with cut-aways, and 3D views and stereo panoramas to extend your design to virtual reality.

  • Multi-discipline co-ordination

    Multi-discipline co-ordination

    Since Revit is a multi-discipline BIM platform, you can share model data with engineers and contractors within Revit, reducing co-ordination tasks.
