What are the differences between Revit versus AutoCAD

Biblio CAD, the youtuber, presents this video tutorial highlighting the most crucial differentiations amid Revit and AutoCAD.

Given below some basic differentions between Revit and AutoCAD :-

Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit are both extensively used in the architecture industry of the globe. AutoCAD is a first class tool for drafting of interior and exterior spaces of buildings but Revit offers a superior solution for developing exact plans for building information modeling (BIM) toward large projects.

AutoCAD is most recognized commercial software for 2D & 3D Computer Aided Designs (CAD) and drafting whereas Revit is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) product facilitating the users to design a building, structure and its elements in 3D.

Revit is mainly designed for Structural Developer and Designer whereas AutoCAD is intended for any 2D/3D designer and drafter.

The application of AutoCAD is found across a wide array of industries like architects, project managers, engineers, designers, and diverse professionals. Revit software is primarily used by structural engineers, architects, designers, MEP engineers, and contractors.

AutoCAD is mostly suitable for 2D drawing i.e. where only perfect line work like elevation detail drawings is required. Revit is mainly used for modeling, producing cost schedules, collaboration and change management.
