Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 32 & 64bit
Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software helps architects and designers work naturally, design freely, and deliver projects efficiently. Purpose-built for building information modeling (BIM), Revit Architecture helps you explore design concepts and forms, and better maintain your design data through documentation and construction. With parametric change technology, any change you make is automatically updated throughout your project, keeping your design and documentation coordinated and more reliable. Share essential BIM data with your partners for a more collaborative, integrated building design process. Support a more efficient design process that enables improved sustainable design analysis, clash detection, construction planning, and material fabrication.
Complete Projects, One Environment
Autodesk Revit Architecture software’s conceptual design features provide easy-to-use tools for freeform modeling and parametric design, enabling you to analyze designs from the earliest stages of development. Sketch freely, create 3D forms quickly, and manipulate forms interactively. Prepare your models for fabrication and construction with built-in tools for conception and clarification of complex forms. Autodesk Revit Architecture automatically builds a parametric framework around forms as you design, offering you greater levels of creative control, accuracy, and flexibility. Take your design from concept model all the way to construction documents, all within one intuitive environment.
Authoritative Decisions, Sooner
Autodesk Revit Architecture software supports early analysis of your building forms so your team can make better informed decisions earlier in your project. Use this capability to clarify areas and volumes, perform daylighting and energy analysis, and gain insight into manufacturing viability and early construction material takeoffs.
The Building Maker feature in Autodesk Revit Architecture helps you transform your conceptual forms into fully functional building designs. Select and add faces to design walls, roofs, floors, and curtain systems. Extract important building information, including gross area per floor. Bring conceptual massing concepts from applications such as AutoCAD® software and Autodesk® Maya® software as well as AutoDesSys form•Z®, McNeel Rhinoceros®, Google™ SketchUp®, or other ACIS®- or NURBS-based applications into Autodesk Revit Architecture as mass objects, and begin schematic design.
Coordinated, Accurate Design Information
Autodesk Revit Architecture software is built to work the way architects and designers think about buildings. Work naturally, design freely, and deliver efficiently within a single environment.
Autodesk Revit Architecture generates every schedule, drawing sheet, 2D view, and 3D view from a single foundational database, automatically coordinating changes across all facets and presentations as your project develops and evolves.
A change anywhere is a change everywhere. In Autodesk Revit Architecture, all model information is stored in a single, coordinated database. Revisions and alterations to information are automatically updated throughout the model, minimizing errors and omissions.
Schedules provide another view of the comprehensive Autodesk Revit Architecture model. Changes to a schedule view are automatically reflected in all other views. Functionality includes associative split-schedule sections and selectable design elements via schedule views, formulas, and filtering.
The extensive detail library and detailing tools provided within Autodesk Revit Architecture enable extensive presorting, easing alignment with the CSI format. Detail libraries can be created, shared, and tailored to better accommodate your office standards.
Parametric components, also known as families, are the basis for all building components designed in Autodesk Revit Architecture. These components offer an open, graphical system for design thinking and form making, while providing the opportunity to adjust and express design intent at increasingly detailed levels. Use parametric components for elaborate assemblies, such as cabinetry and equipment, as well as for elementary building parts, such as walls and columns. Best of all, no programming language or coding is required.
Calculate detailed material quantities with Material Takeoff. Ideal for better calculation of material quantities on sustainable design projects and cost estimates, Material Takeoff helps smooth the material quantity tracking process. As projects evolve, the Autodesk Revit Architecture parametric change engine updates material takeoffs.
Use interference checking to scan your model for collisions between elements.
Task-Based User Interface
The Autodesk Revit Architecture user interface offers desktop organization through a large drawing window and access to the tools and commands you need. Tools are organized into a collection of tabs and panels to represent architectural workflows such as creation, annotation, or collaboration.
Exceed and Succeed
Better Manage individual and team processes. Deliver more complete documents and higher-quality designs. Most importantly, win more business with clear and complete presentations.
Create and capture photoreal design ideas and contextual environments to help you experience your project, even before it is built. Integrated mental ray® rendering software is easy to use and delivers high-quality output, faster render times, and a striking design presentation.
Improve your workflow with projects containing linked files with the ability to apply view filters and tag elements, and control the visibility of worksets in linked files. Autodesk Revit Architecture also allows you to export building model or site data directly to AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software or to import data-rich models directly from Autodesk® Inventor® software.
Native 64-bit Support
Native 64-bit support enhances Autodesk Revit Architecture software’s ability to handle large projects and helps improve performance and stability for memory-intensive tasks such as rendering, printing, model upgrading, and file importing and exporting.
Support for Sustainable Design
Autodesk Revit Architecture supports sustainable design processes from the earliest stages. Export building information, including materials and room volumes, to gbXML (green building extensible markup language). Perform energy analysis using Autodesk® Green Building Studio® webbased services, and study building performance employing Autodesk® Ecotect® Analysis software. Use Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software to help evaluate indoor lighting analysis in support of LEED® 8.1 certification.
Purpose-built for BIM
Autodesk Revit Architecture is purpose-built for BIM. BIM is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. By adopting BIM, architecture firms can use this consistent information throughout the process to design and document innovative projects, accurately visualize appearance for better communication, and simulate real-world performance for better understanding of cost, scheduling, and environmental impact.
The BIM advantage
BIM helps building professionals stay competitive in an increasingly complex business climate by giving them the ability to better predict the outcome of a building before it is built. Using BIM helps architects and designers to create more sustainable, accurate designs with fewer errors and less waste, helping to achieve higher profits and more satisfied clients. BIM also optimizes team collaboration, enabling architects to more clearly and reliably communicate design intent to engineers, contractors, fabricators, and owners
