Cost-effective tool helps building professionals in small firms transition to BIM
Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK), a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, has announced its Autodesk Revit LT software. It is a new addition to its award winning family of Revit software products, designed for architects, designers and building industry professionals. It is aimed at practices currently using 2D workflows who are looking to transition to the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. Autodesk Revit LT software delivers a focused 3D application to help users create higher-quality and more accurate designs and documentation.
"Autodesk Revit LT reflects our commitment to provide architects, designers and building professionals the tools they need to ease the transition to get started with-and take advantage of-a BIM workflow," said Amar Hanspal, Autodesk senior vice president, information modeling products. "With Revit LT, customers can deliver higher-quality, more accurate designs and documentation-allowing them to bring projects to market faster and save time and money."
Autodesk Revit LT is built on the Revit platform for BIM and allows users to create designs efficiently with 3D, real-world building objects to produce reliable, coordinated documentation faster. Revit-based applications help deliver better coordination and quality. Firms are able to work more efficiently with a single, coordinated model that allows users to concurrently design and document building projects. A consistent representation of the building is maintained, helping to improve drawing coordination and reducing errors.
Revit LT allows users to see their designs virtually, improving their understanding of the building and its spaces, and helping them communicate design ideas to clients more clearly and effectively. In particular produce designs are in the DWG file format, and consequently users will experience fluid file exchange with other project team members who are using other Autodesk Revit software applications.
