Revit File Format

What-is-a-revit-file

‘Revit’ is the name of Autodesk’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) software and its file format (rvt). Revit is a popular BIM file format in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry for designing and constructing buildings and other structures.

Besides native Revit file formats, the Revit software also supports common computer-aided design (CAD) formats as well, such as DGN, SAT, DXF, DWF, and others.

In addition to modeling and designing buildings, Revit can also be used to analyze its meta-data for analysis, clash coordination, and other tasks.
