The evolving features and multi-discipline toolsets in Revit® can help every architecture, engineering, and construction professional do their best work as individuals and in teams.
Place walls, doors, and windows in an open, graphical, and parameter-rich system for design and form-making.
Save, sync, review, and update work to a centrally shared model in the Revit project collaboration environment.
Use tables to better capture, filter, sort, display, and share project data.
Revit imports, exports, and links with commonly used BIM and CAD file formats, including IFC, 3DM, SKP, OBJ, and more.
Communicate design intent effectively with tools for tagging, dimensioning, and illustrating in 2D and 3D.
Embed design intent with project-wide parameters that work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
Extend Revit functionality with Dynamo, API access, developer solutions, and BIM content on the Autodesk App Store.
Evaluate and compare design alternatives at scale with Generative Design in Revit. Available exclusively to AEC Collection subscribers.
Control visibility by hiding, revealing, and highlighting building elements. Use overrides to customize appearance.
Create site-specific form, profile, and sketch studies within the Revit in-place massing environment, and use loadable mass families to standardize and repeat geometry within a project.
Load content from the Autodesk cloud into a Revit project or create your own libraries of building components.
Customize the user interface to fit, with configurable keyboard shortcuts, ribbons, and toolbars.
Electrical preliminary load analysis
Electrical engineers and designers working in Revit can now leverage an architect’s PDF, DWG™, or Revit geometry to perform preliminary load calculations earlier in the design process—prior to modeling electrical equipment. (video: 2:05 min.)
New workflow for structural analytical modeling
Get control over analytical modeling. Associate analytical model elements with physical geometry or automate creation of analytical elements from the physical model and its properties. Define hierarchies, tolerances, and openings for floors and walls, and sync the analytical model with changes to the physical model as design evolves. (video: 2:09 min.)
Interoperability improvements with FormIt Pro
AEC COLLECTION ONLY
Link FormIt AXM files in Revit, improving early-stage design interoperability with FormIt Pro. Use the 3D Sketch feature to launch a FormIt session from Revit for linked FormIt files. Leverage the fluid modeling capabilities of FormIt to define and iterate design intent, and preview changes before sending back to Revit. (video: 1:58 min.)
Generative Design and Dynamo enhancements
Take advantage of more flexible inputs, clarity in method naming, and consistency across interfaces. (video: 2:20 min.)
Filter schedules by sheets
Use the filter by sheet option to display in a schedule only the elements and their properties that appear on a sheet. Manipulate views on the sheet to show more or less of the model, and watch the schedule update dynamically. (video: 1:26 min.)
Show displaced elements in 2D views
Adjust element position in 2D plan views to add clarity to documentation sets. (video: 52 sec.)
Conceptual design tools
Articulate form in the Revit massing environment with freeform tools for profiling and massing, and refine geometry parametrically in the project environment.
Analysis with Insight
AEC COLLECTION ONLY
Use advanced simulation engines and building performance data integrated in Revit to assess daylighting, whole building energy, heating and cooling loads, and more.
Add architectural elements to the building model, including walls, doors, and windows, or define custom components and families to meet any modeling need and level of detail.
Point cloud tools
Use scanning tools to capture existing and as-built conditions and import into Revit as point clouds.
3D design visualization
Explore, validate, and communicate design decisions visually. Revit renders with high quality and precision through the Autodesk Raytracer rendering engine.
Quickly create and modify multistory buildings by connecting stairs to the levels in your project.
Produce photorealistic visualizations without tying up your desktop or using special rendering hardware.
Analytically driven modeling
Leverage accurate and versatile structural analysis tools to assess and adapt design intent as the BIM model develops. Automate analytical representation, run multiple analyses from a single BIM model, schedule data for documentation, and assure quality control of structural design. New in Revit 2023.
Create 3D reinforcement designs for cast-in-place and precast concrete structures. Produce reinforcement shop drawing documentation with rebar schedules.
Structural steel modeling
Model connections with a higher level of detail using a variety of parametric steel connections in Revit or by creating your own custom steel connections.
Bidirectional linking with analysis
Integrate analysis results into the BIM process and work in an iterative design workflow.
Dynamo for structural engineering
Dynamo gives structural engineers, designers, and detailers tools to build structures with minimal energy and make their own design tools.
Linking with steel fabrication
Interoperability between Revit and Advance Steel helps provide a seamless BIM workflow from steel design to fabrication.
Electrical preliminary load analysis
Electrical engineers and designers working in Revit can now leverage an architect’s PDF, DWG, or Revit geometry to perform preliminary load calculations earlier in the design process—prior to modeling electrical equipment.
MEP Systems Analysis
Systems Analysis optimizes your HVAC systems design and modeling, letting you make data-driven design decisions.
HVAC design and documentation
Design complex duct and pipe systems to express intent, and model duct and pipe systems with mechanical design content.
Electrical design and documentation
Design, model, and document electrical systems. Keep track of electrical loads throughout the distribution system.
Plumbing design and documentation
Create sanitary plumbing systems with sloped piping and layout piping systems to design and document intent.
MEP fabrication detailing
Create fabrication-ready models in Revit. You can model and coordinate MEP LOD 400 components.
Insight lets you optimize building performance with centralized access to performance data and advanced analysis engines.
Fabrication service conversion
Use the Design to Fabrication tool to convert design-level model elements to construction level-of-detail elements.
Document model layout more effectively. Document, schedule, and tag fabrication elements.
Derive construction insight from design models. Split and manipulate wall layers and concrete pours and prepare shop drawings for fabrication.
Open a Navisworks coordination model directly in Revit to coordinate your design with the work of teams that use different software.
Import/export 2D sheets
Bring AutoCAD files in or out of Revit, and prepare sheet sets for export to fabricators, subcontractors, or other project stakeholders in the format they need.
