Autodesk Revit for structural engineers
Autodesk® Revit® software provides structural engineers and designers with the tools to more accurately design and build efficient building structures.
Revit for Structural Engineering
Built to support Building Information Modeling (BIM), Revit helps you use intelligent models to gain project insight through simulation and analysis and predict performance prior to construction. Document designs more accurately using coordinated and consistent information inherent in the intelligent models.
Multiple Materials Modeling
Autodesk Revit software include building materials such as steel, cast-in-place concrete, precast concrete, masonry, and wood. Since the buildings you design are constructed of multiple building materials, Revit building software enables you to model your structure using the materials you need.
You can quickly and easily define and visualize concrete reinforcement in Autodesk Revit. Methods for managing the definition of reinforcement as well as controlling its placement include:
- Multi-planer reinforcement support
- Support for hosting reinforcement in generic model families
- Accurate display of self-intersecting reinforcement bars
- Support for attaching stirrups beyond cover references
Tools in Autodesk Revit can help you create and manage the structural analytical model, including control over the analytical model and consistency with the structural physical model.
Bidirectional Links with Multiple Analysis Packages
The analytical model in Autodesk Revit software is bi-directionally linked with Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis software. With bidirectional linking, your analysis results will automatically update your model. Parametric change technology coordinates those updates throughout your project views and construction drawings.
Use interference checking to scan your Revit model for collisions between elements.
Modeling tools help you derive better construction insight from design models. Split and manipulate objects, such as wall layers and concrete pours, to more accurately represent construction methods. Prepare shop drawings for fabrication with features that give you greater flexibility in documenting assemblies of model elements.
You can create details from views of a 3D model with additional annotations or from scratch with Revit structural 2D drafting tools, as well as import details from conventional CAD files. To help save time, import entire sheets of typical details in DWG™ format from previous projects.
Autodesk Revit for MEP engineers
Autodesk® Revit® software provides mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineers with the tools to design even the most complex building systems.
Support for Building Information Modeling
Revit supports Building Information Modeling (BIM), helping you drive accurate design, analysis, and documentation of more efficient building systems from concept through to construction. Use information-rich models to support building systems design throughout the building lifecycle.
Designing Piping to Industry Standards with Routing Preferences
With Autodesk Revit software, you can design and route piping according to industry piping standards to help improve accuracy. Pipe material type and sizes are defined based on industry standards, making it easier to ensure designs meet project requirements.
Calculating Pressure and Flow for Duct and Pipe
Flow and pressure can be calculated separately for each sub-segment of a duct or pipe run when using taps instead of tee fittings. Results can be displayed to ensure that ducts or pipes are properly connected to equipment and do not have open ends.
HVAC/Electrical Design Room Color-Fill Plans
Communicate design intent visually with room color-fill plans. This functionality minimizes the need for deciphering spreadsheets and using colored pencils on printed plans.
Update all revisions and alterations to color-fill plans automatically across your model. Create any number of schemes, and maintain better consistency for the duration of your project. 3D modeling for ductwork and piping enables you to create HVAC systems that use color schemes for design airflow, actual airflow, and mechanical zones. Create electrical color schemes for power loads and lighting per area.
Piping & Electrical Content
Many types of electrical content—including communications, fire safety, data, and nurse call—are available from within Revit. Modeling capabilities for managing electrical and data cable trays and conduits are also available. Cable trays and conduits can be routed as individual runs with or without individual fittings placed between straight sections. Control panels and individual controls or devices can help you connect objects to their appropriate panels.
In Autodesk Revit software, sloped piping tools support enhanced productivity for piping design. Create pipe slope values and transfer from project to project for design efficiency. Define the rise over run and lay out your plumbing design more easily. Calculation is automatic and slope propagation is easier when you apply a slope to a run of multiple pipe selections through fittings. Tag invert elevations at the beginning or end of a pipe run, minimizing guesswork and manual calculations. Keep track of the current pipe elevation with dynamic on-screen tooltips while routing sloped piping. Connect between 2 points in space regardless of the slope required.
Material Takeoff is a Revit tool that helps calculate detailed material quantities and track material quantities in cost estimates. The parametric change engine helps support more accurate material takeoffs.
Autodesk Revit for architects
Autodesk Revit software works the way architects and designers think, so you can develop higher-quality, more accurate architectural designs.
Revit for Architectural Design
Using tools specifically built to support Building Information Modeling workflows, you can capture and analyze concepts and maintain your vision through design, documentation, and construction.
