Revit Overview

Autodesk Revit software is built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), helping professionals design, build, and maintain higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings. Using the information-rich models created with Autodesk Revit software, architects, engineers, and construction firms can collaborate to make more-informed decisions earlier in the design process to deliver projects more efficiently. Any design changes made in Revit models are automatically updated throughout the model, keeping designs and documentation coordinated and more reliable. Autodesk Revit includes features for architectural design, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, structural engineering, and construction, providing a comprehensive solution for the entire building project team.

Revit Features

Design and manage Building Information Modeling (BIM) projects more efficiently and collaboratively with tools created for the workflows of architects, MEP engineers, structural engineers, and construction professionals.

Tools in Revit BIM software help you to:

  • Deliver higher-quality, more accurate model-based architectural designs and building systems. Make better decisions earlier in the design process by more accurately visualizing and analyzing structures, before they are built.
  • Facilitate more streamlined collaboration using information-rich models that help you make informed decisions earlier in the design process.
  • Work with a single intelligent 3D model to help improve coordination and collaboration across the project team, wherever they are located.
  • Minimize coordination mistakes and rework with fully parametric change management capabilities.
  • Improve how you communicate the look, feel, and intent of a design. Documentation tools help you stay coordinated and consistent no matter how many times the design changes.
  • Help reduce costly design conflicts during construction and minimize design coordination errors by conducting interference detection during design development.
  • Use intelligent 3D models and more accurate documentation to support building systems design throughout the building lifecycle.

System Requirements

Autodesk Revit LT 2017

  • Operating System ¹
    – Microsoft® Windows® 7 SP1 64-bit: Enterprise, Ultimate, Professional, or Home Premium
    – Microsoft® Windows® 8.1 64-bit: Enterprise, Pro, or Windows 8.1
    – Microsoft® Windows® 10 64-bit: Enterprise, or Pro
  • CPU Type
    Single- or Multi-Core Intel® Pentium®, Xeon®, or i-Series processor or AMD® equivalent with SSE2 technology. Highest affordable CPU speed rating recommended.
  • Memory
    4 GB RAM
    – Usually sufficient for a typical editing session for a single model up to approximately 100 MB on disk. This estimate is based on internal testing and customer reports. Individual models will vary in their use of computer resources and performance characteristics.
    – Models created in previous versions of Revit software products may require more available memory for the one-time upgrade process.
    – /3GB RAM switch not recommended where applicable. Revit software and system stability can be affected by memory conflicts with video drivers when the /3GB switch is active.
  • Video Display
    – 1,280 x 1,024 with true color
    – DPI Display Setting: 150% or less
  • Video Adapter
    – Basic Graphics: Display adapter capable of 24-bit color
    – Advanced Graphics: DirectX® 11 capable graphics card with Shader Model 3 as recommended by Autodesk.
  • Disk Space
    5 GB free disk space
  • Media
    Download or installation from DVD9 or USB key
  • Pointing Device
    MS-Mouse or 3Dconnexion® compliant device
  • Browser
    Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 7.0 (or later)
  • Connectivity
    Internet connection for license registration and prerequisite component download

whats included

Dynamo graphical programming interface

Enhance and extend model behavior without having to know how to program. Dynamo provides a visual programming environment that is accessible to designers, letting you visually create logic that drives the geometry and behavior of Revit elements and data.

Global parameters

Help embed design intent in a model by using project-wide parameters to drive dimension and element instance parameters with the new Global Parameters feature. Measure dimensions and calculate formulas to drive dimensions and parameter values in other elements in the project.

Combine parameters

Document projects with greater accuracy by combining parameters in a schedule to display the values in a single cell. Specify a prefix, suffix, sample value, and separator to display with each parameter.
