Revit software helps engineers, designers, and contractors across the MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) disciplines model to a high level of detail and easily coordinate with building project contributors. Use a single model to enhance the communication of design intent, before construction begins. Conduct simulations and interference detection earlier in the design process. Design, model, and document building systems in the context of a full building information model, including architectural and structural components.
With Revit worksharing, multiple team members can work on a project at the same time using a centrally shared model. When architects, engineers, and construction professionals work on one unified platform, the risk of data translation errors can be reduced and the design process can be more predictable.
By using Revit model instead of drawings, the takeoffs, counts, and measurements can be generated directly from the underlying model. Therefore the information is always consistent with the design. And when a change is made in the
To share design information with builders and engineers, you can produce detailed drawings from the building model, or create a drafted drawing to show specific details. Print construction documents, or publish them for electronic sharing. Enter revision information, mark changes with revision clouds, and specify the revisions to display on each sheet.
When architects, structural engineers, and mechanical engineers collaborate on a building project, they must share information about the design, so that all teams are working with the same assumptions. By coordinating efforts across disciplines, the teams avoid expensive errors and rework.
In Revit you can analyze a more detailed model. You can do whole building energy simulations on architectural building information models that include wall, window, floor, and roof constructions that all have unique thermal properties (“building elements”). Cooling load calculation and electric load calculation and LUX calculation.
Clash detection helps in effective identification, inspection and reporting of interferences in a project model. It is used for checking completed/ongoing work and reduces the risk of human error during model inspections. Clash detection is necessary because several models (structural, MEP, etc) are integrated into one main BIM model.
