Advances in innovative technology have given way to critical tools leveraged by the AEC industry. Driven by a need to make processes and workflows leaner, Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology is the answer for those demanding efficiencies throughout the design process. Ultimately, BIM is a tool that should be used for anything that is constructed.
Autodesk, a purveyor of broad toolsets for design and engineering entities, capitalizes on this profound innovation with its proprietary tool, Revit. Revit is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for MEP engineers, designers, architects and contractors for 3D drafting and modeling. Autodesk Revit allows users to evaluate and explore a project constructability by identifying clashes in the design.
Everywhere we look, we most likely experience what Autodesk Revit users have created, whether it's a tall skyscraper, hotel, home, or commercial building. It is no surprise that Autodesk Revit features are what makes it one of the most popular platforms used within the AEC and MEP community.
3D BIM Modeling Preview: Architectural designers have the ability to create a drafting layout in an accurate and fast way. The design is instantly available in 3D mode, allowing users to try different designing ideas at an early stage of the process. Users can also share with their peers a live preview of how the finished product will look.
Centralized Design: In the Revit architectural model, all building component are connected, decreasing any repetitive task. If there are any changes made to a building floorplan, sections or elevations it will automatically update any connecting component, changing the whole building model at once.
Error-free Construction Documents: Autodesk Revit advance 3D modeling abilities allows designers and drafters to identify any clashes or areas of congestion. This helps them address any future problems at an early stage of the building process, resulting in high-quality construction documentation.
Simulation and Visualization: Revit's impressive simulation tools allow designers to visualize every aspect of the design such as lighting, seasons, furniture and more. Revit also has the competitive advantage of Virtual Reality (VR) programming, where you can freely navigate through the building to have an idea of how every aspect of the design will look once it's completed.
Parametric Building Components: Autodesk Revit comes packed with a family of parametric building components. All components can be quickly edited or customized to your needs and saved in a library to use in other future designing projects.
Bill of Quantities Projection: Autodesk Revit allows contractors to stay within their budget by generating a bill of quantities. Based on the building model, materials, labor, and supplies can be accurately counted for an overall cost report.
Energy Efficient Design: In today's modern world, building sustainability is crucial. With Autodesk Revit, engineers and designers can do energy analysis to see how well the building will perform at different times of the year.
