Revit – software, the principle of operation of which is based on the technology of creating an information base about the project. This instrument is aimed at architects, builders, system designers and contractors. The main principle of work is to build a virtual 3D model of the building. The next step is to apply 2D information such as dimensions, labels, etc. to the matching model views. Next, we can make a bill of quantities and use the tool to create building construction stages (along with the demolition stage in the case of adaptation).
Creating the main building elements in Revit is very intuitive. The elements themselves are immediately ready-made libraries in a three-dimensional form. These libraries contain a lot of desired information regarding, for example, the type and quantity of building material they consist of. They also have information on the interrelationships between elements, e.g. to what level the room belongs or whether there is a geometric collision between the ventilation ducts and structural columns.
In case we need a library item that is not available with the installed ones – then we have the option of using a very universal tool, which is the editor of our own libraries, and for advanced users, Autodesk has made it possible to create our own applications working with the Revit software.
The built-in tool for creating photorealistic visualizations increases the attractiveness of the project and makes it easier to compete in tenders.
As part of building a model, in the background of the process, the program also creates a calculation model that is perfectly recognized by external calculation tools such as Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis®.
As of today, the Autodesk Revit brand is the most recognized among designers all over the world. Due to the very dynamic development and Autodesk’s plans to integrate each design stage – BIM technology based on the Revit® platform is currently the most universal and most advanced solution in the world.

Minimal: Basic configuration
Microsoft® Windows®7 32-bit
Microsoft® Windows® XP SP2 (or later)
Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 7.0 (or later)
Single or multi-core Intel® Pentium®, Xeon®, or series I or AMD® equivalent with SSE2 support. The fastest processor that can be purchased is recommended.
Autodesk® Revit® software uses multiple cores for a variety of tasks, with a maximum of 16 cores for near-photorealistic rendering.
4 GB of RAM
Usually, it is sufficient for a typical session of editing a single model using up to 100 MB on a disk. These estimates were obtained from internal tests and customer reports. Different models use computer resources to a different extent and affect their performance.
Models created in previous versions of Revit software may require more memory during a one-time conversion to a higher version.
It is not recommended to use the system option / 3GB RAM. If the system option / 3GB RAM is enabled, conflicts with graphics card driver memory can affect the stability of the system and Revit software.
