Revit has gradually emerged as the most accepted software as it supports BIM, one of the major innovations in architecture industry in the 21st century. Since 2002, Revit has become a popular word in the AEC community. In combination with BIM process and 3D modeling, Revit has transformed the entire architecture design, drafting and modeling processes. Autodesk Revit suite is the most widely used software by architects spread all over the globe. Some of the advantages of using Revit are as follows-
Revit allows previewing the finished look of the home in 3D BIM modeling: Revit Parametric modeling is an important tool for conceptual design. Revit software allows architectural designers to quickly sketch a rough layout of the floor plan, or modify the standard set of building designs. Through Revit, designers can immediately let their customers preview the finished look of their future homes. Besides, 3D design views also enable designers to experiment with different design ideas and detect design flaws, if any, at early stage.
Quick and easy modification to designs and no repetitive tasks: There are frequent modifications made in the building structure and floor plans during the design phase. And Revit BIM software helps in precise and prompt architecture designing and drafting. All the building components like plans, sections, and elevations, in Revit architecture model, are connected to each another, hence, whenever model is modified, the software automatically updates every related component, affecting the entire building model.
Comprehensive library of parametric building components: Revit software is available with a vast library of parametric building design components which enables quick alterations to the existing components. It stores the new modified or customized parametric objects to be used later in other projects. When designing a new model, architectural designers can make use of the stored parametric building objects for easy and fast references to the prospective clients.
Construction documents of the best quality: 3D modeling capacity of Revit architecture allows designers and drafters to easily detect and identify the conflicting issues and areas of congestion. This helps them in resolving the disturbing issues early in the process. Easy detection of errors results in flawless and top quality construction documentations.
Revit helps in precise estimation of quantities and cost: BIM allows automatic generation of bill of quantities (BOQ) and Revit generates accurate material quantity takeouts as a by-product, in the most hassle-free manner which helps contractors and owners to determine whether the project is as per the budgets.
Revit offers better coordination: Revit is renowned for unifying design, drafting, construction and facility management processes in one single environment. This allows all stakeholders to be aware of their responsibilities and thus enhance the overall coordination. An improved understanding and coordination removes design conflict and risks which aids in smooth designing.
High Level of Flexibility: Revit allows the storage of all project data in one single project file. Multiple users can work on the same project file and merge their modifications with every save. Apart from all these benefits, Revit is also exports and imports DWG, DXF, DGN, PDF and JPEG files.
