Starting a Project, Learning the Interface & the Library
What is Revit?
Revit is a commercial building information modeling (BIM) software by the company Autodesk. It’s generally used by architects, structural engineers, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers, designers, and contractors. Autodesk Revit allows users to create, edit, and review 3D models in exceptional detail.
What is the difference between Revit and Autocad?
AutoCAD is a design software that allows its users to create 3D and 2D drawings with the aid of a computer. On the other hand, Revit is used to build an intelligent 3D model with real-world information. For example, in AutoCAD, doors are just a part of a drawing. However, your Revit projects would feature an actual door model along with information about the material, pricing, etc.
Having a laptop with a Revit trial already installed is recommended, but not required.
