Revit Architecture is design for Architects, Civil Engineers, Draftsmen and Interior Designers to design and document a building by creating a parametric three dimensional model that includes both geometry and non-geometry design and construction information which is also known as building information modeling (BIM).
Revit Parametric modeling is a significant tool for conceptual design. With Revit software, Architectural designers can quickly sketch a rough layout of the floor plan, or make changes to the standard set of building designs and instantly let their customers preview their future homes. 3D design views give designers to try out different design ideas and guide their design decisions at early stage.
During the design phase, the building structure and floor plans needed to be modified frequently. With Revit BIM software, architecture designing and drafting becomes very fast and accurate. In Revit architecture model, all building components such as plans, sections, and elevations are intelligently connected to each another. Whenever a change is made to the model, the software automatically updates every related component, affecting the whole building model.
3D modeling capacity of Revit architecture enables designers and drafters to easily identify the clashes and areas of congestion, and resolve them early in the process. It results in error-free and high quality construction documentations.
One of the most important advantages of building information modeling software is the automatic generation of bill of quantities (BOQ). BIM modeling software like Revit produces accurate material quantity takeouts as a by-product, with less-efforts. This advantage helps the contractors and owners to determine if the project adheres to budgets.
BIM drafting software Revit unifies design, drafting, construction and facility management processes in single environment, allowing all stakeholders to remain updated and aware of their responsibilities, and thus improving overall coordination. A total understanding by everyone on the projects of what's happening removes the design conflicts and risks.
Unlike AutoCAD, Revit allows all projects data to be stored in single project file. It allows multiple users to work on the same project file and merge their changes with every save. Besides, Revit exports and imports DWG, DXF, DGN, PDF, JPEG files.
The list of BIM advantages continues. It is proved that BIM approach is "significantly more efficient" that the traditional drafting- based approach. A significant numbers of architecture design and drafting company are realizing the implementation of BIM software.
