Did you know...

All these functions have been developed through direct interaction with thousands of users? We and our customer saw, very early on, the need to improve the Autodesk Revit platform.  Our first launch of this product portfolio was way back in 2008. So we added a set of integrated tools in Revit to improve productivity, design automation and control whilst enhancing the user experience.
