What is Revit?

Revit® BIM software helps architecture teams create high-quality buildings and infrastructure. Key Capabilities include:
- Place walls, doors, and windows. Generate floor plans, elevations, sections, schedules, 2D and 3D views, and renderings quickly and accurately.
- Share, sync, and iterate designs with engineers and contractors in Revit in a unified project environment.
- Optimize building performance in early-stage design, run cost estimates and more!

Future is here

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: BIM will certainly change the construction industry in ways we cannot fully appreciate yet. Revit is of the best solutions that are pushing this revolution forward.

Pros:

- Game-changing and full-featured building BIM design software (Building Information Modeling) - Simplified the design process beyond belief from the days of AutoCAD - Quantity take-offs are now byproducts of the building model, not a separate business process. - With BIM (Not only Revit) the plans, sections and quantity take-offs are all dynamically related. Any change to one of them is immediately reflected on the others - Works well for Architectural, Structural, HVAC, and MEP modeling. - Easy to use yet very capable. - Seamless integration with other Autodesk solutions (NavisWorsk, Robot .. etc.) - Plenty of training resources online.

Cons:

- The price is too steep for companies in developing countries especially since it uses an annual subscription for each user.

Best tool for parametric modelling

4.0 7 months ago

Comments: Very comprehensive and easy to use software that has made creating models and streamlining design easy and fast.

Pros:

Revit is the best and easiest tool to create parametric bim models when compared to the others. It has the shortest learning curve and the most tools available

Cons:

It struggles when importing geometry from non revit formats even if it is coming from the same ecosystem (autocad). It also needs to improve the topography

If I win the lottery

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: If I won the lottery I'd buy Revit and sell it to another competent company like ArchiCad or Sketchup.

Pros:

It did the mundane relatively quickly like schedules and elevations.

Cons:

Pathetic updates and implementation of necessary updates and features.

BIM with Automation

5.0 4 months ago

Pros:

When it comes to repeatative task, its in integration with python, Grasshopper and dynamo is really very helpful. Also we can automate complex task as well with revit automation.

Cons:

There is no option for downgrade of revit file. I think, at least they should provide this option with limitations.

Insightful design software

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: Considering the compatibility with other Autodesk applications and helpful features such as 2D and 3D drawing, BIM modeling, presentation tools this is a great application to use. But it comes with a larger price tag. Can be used for many purposes and currently, this is the industry standard for designing. Designing complex structures will be harder but considering advantages and disadvantages this is a good application to use.

Pros:

Another great solution from Autodesk. In Revit, we have the ability to draw, design, and model structures depending on our needs. With tools to draw in 2D and easily model it into 3D, Revit is the solution architectures and civil engineers have been looking for. And especially with modeling and presentation tools Revit is the whole package. This package can be effectively used for architectural, structural, HVAC, and MEP modeling. And with enhanced support from other Autodesk applications, Revit seems like the industry-standard design software.

Cons:

The main disadvantage is the higher price value for Revit. So middle and startup companies have to think twice before purchasing Revit. Also somewhat harder to create complex models. And for a beginner, this would be harder to learn and use.
