BIM software for building design and construction

Revit is a single software application that supports a BIM workflow from concept to construction. Use Revit to model designs with precision, optimize performance, and collaborate more effectively.

 

Revit® BIM software delivers tools for architectural design, MEP engineering, structural engineering, and construction, and enables coordination between disciplines.

Parametric modeling

Parametric components are the basis for designing building components in Revit. Express design intent for elementary parts as well as detailed assemblies.

Collaborate in real time

Worksharing enables multiple team members to work on the same project at the same time on a central shared model.

Stay coordinated

With Bidirectional Associativity, a change anywhere is a change everywhere. Revit model information is automatically updated throughout the model.
