Revit and BIM – What’s the Difference?

17 th April 2023

Often, the terms Revit and BIM (Building Information Modelling) are interchanged. Revit BIM training centres often come across the question, ‘Is BIM the same as Revit?’

According to NBS (thenbs.com), ‘BIM or Building Information Modelling is a process for creating and managing information on a construction project across the project lifecycle.’

Building Information Modelling involves a series of tasks executed collaboratively with people from different disciplines. Some tasks include:

  • CDE (Common Data Environment)
  • LOD Levels (information added in each project stage)
  • Cobie Sheets
  • SMPs (standards, methods and procedures)
  • Clash reports and 4D construction sequencing

All these tasks are a part of the BIM process which provides detailed information about the construction project.

Autodesk defines Revit as ‘Autodesk Revit software is specifically built for Building Information Modelling (BIM), helping building professionals design, build and maintain higher quality, more energy-efficient buildings.’ In other words, Revit is a BIM-enabled software or a software that enables the BIM process.

Revit helps create digital models that contain vital information of each project stage. Revit supports the BIM process by creating 3D models that provide key information, such as:

  • Construction documentation
  • Cost estimates
  • 3D visualisation
  • Coordinated drawing

Grey Edge, an Autodesk Authorised Training Centre (ATC), offers Revit BIM training through its professional training courses in Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure). To know more about BIM and how learning Revit helps understand the BIM process, contact our course counsellor at +91 7304942079.
