Revit, a BIM application, supports the creation of a virtual building through its various properties. Revit is beyond 3D modeling for visualization, as revit renders outstanding perfection and accuracy to the design and helps in extracting any data from it. Some o the data that a usr can use includes Plan, elevations, sections, schedule.
Revit comes with features that simplify creating color fill, 3D perspective, rendering, detailed drawing and limited walkthrough animation. User can also communicate the model to other applications like structural analysis, heat load calculation, green building analysis, etc.
Revit architecture has been developed for architects, engineers and designers to allow them work in the traditional way, i.e. by creating building plan. The conventional architectural and designing procedure incorporates drawing of a building plan. With Revit, while the architect draws a plan, he/she is actually creating a 3D model. This helps in developing the plans and sections without any delay.
It is also possible to the building schedule from the model. A report can be created on the wall length, number of doors & windows and other schedules easily. Besides, this schedule can be customized in different languages. Creating designs in 3D aids in easy visualization and helps the designer or architect to get a better perspective.
This software allows the design process to become semi-automatic by generating 3D views for a 2D plan. This saves a lot of time, money and energy, of course. It is considered as one of the most reliable, accurate and efficient method of designing. Built specifically for BIM, Revit Architecture helps architects and designers to develop higher-quality 3D models by capturing and analyzing concepts and maintaining their vision through design, documentation and construction. The automatic updates keep the designs and documentation coordinated and precise.
