A Comparison of Revit and AutoCAD

Autodesk has a family of software products designed for designers and engineers, including Revit and AutoCAD, which can even integrate when needed.

Nevertheless, their purposes are distinct. AutoCAD creates 2D geometries with 3D modeling capabilities, whereas Revit dedicates to building information modeling (BIM) and is the parametric modeling software. Architects and engineers use each for a variety of tasks in construction.

Features & Functions of Revit

Coordination of Construction

Because it is a BIM, Revit is particularly useful when it comes to allowing the entire team to share information. With the construction coordination feature, everyone can keep their autonomy while staying up-to-date on each step by uploading models to a shared drive at every stage.

Global Parameters

Throughout the whole project cycle, Revit configures project parameters. As well as radial diameters, they are concerned with equality constraints.

Insight Integration

Due to the BIM capabilities of Revit, it is also valuable for modifying existing structures. Using insight integration, you can view detailed information on how a building’s efficiency and environmental impact compares to others, tweak the measurements to match your personal preferences, and fine-tune the design accordingly.
