Sept. 25, 2012: Autodesk Introduces Autodesk Revit LT for BIM

SAN FRANCISCO — Autodesk Inc. has introduced Autodesk Revit LT software, a new addition to its family of Revit software products. It is designed for architects, designers, and building industry professionals using 2D workflows who are looking to transition to the building information modeling (BIM) process.

“Autodesk Revit LT reflects our commitment to provide architects, designers, and building professionals, particularly those in small firms, 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 said 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. Benefits of Revit LT include:

• Work more efficiently with a single, coordinated model that allows users to concurrently design and document building projects. Revit LT automatically manages iterative changes to building models throughout the documentation process. As a result, a consistent representation of the building is maintained, helping to improve drawing coordination and reducing errors.

• Design and visualize in 3D. Revit LT allows users to see their designs virtually, improving their understanding of the building and its spaces, and helping them communicate design ideas more clearly and effectively.

• Create photorealistic renderings in the cloud. Users who purchase Autodesk Subscription with Revit LT can render in the cloud directly from the Revit LT interface, enabling them to produce photorealistic visualizations without tying up their desktop.

• Exchange designs in DWG or RVT file formats. Produce designs in the DWG file format, and experience fluid file exchange with project team members using other Autodesk Revit software applications.
