Autodesk Revit Model Review

Autodesk Revit Model Review 19.0

Design 2D and 3D models for architectural design or structural engineering
 
19.0.1.1 (See all)

In the modern era of computers, innovative software programs have been developed in order to help humans do their job easier and efficiently. Autodesk Revit is an example of such a program and was created to help engineers or architects design 2D structural or 3D models of a building using steel fabrication elements, hydraulic functions, circuit boards, or plumbings.

The installation process takes several minutes to complete and has a tedious setup operation. Once finished, you discover a modern and complex interface, crowded with various sections, panels, and toolbars, all very well-organized.

The features the program comes packed with allow users to create, optimize and connect their undergoing projects.
You can place an instance of a previously loaded image, move elements on small distances, or create parts from bridge and tunnel geometry imported from InfraWorks.

Moreover, users can choose to display and modify levels for a 3D model, specify the projection mode of 3D view from the ViewCube menu, or use the Crop View tool to improve the modeling process in 3D views.

Also, the program automatically uses the highest resolution for Advanced accuracy in Render Quality Settings and allows users zooming into schedule view to ease up the read of small texts.

In conclusion, Autodesk Revit is a complex software for creating 2D and 3D and projects, and it's best suited for professionals. It requires a huge amount of system memory to work properly, lacks legacy saving and has a tedious interface. However, it's one of the best alternatives to AutoCAD.
