Both CAD and Revit can be used to generate construction documents. CAD is a simple tool to create 2D and 3D designs and can also help you with rendering. You can make elevations, floor plans and other details in CAD in an easy manner without being an expert. But that is where the use of CAD ends!
Revit is a far advanced solution and used for creating models based on Building Information Modeling or BIM. To put in it simple words, CAD is useful for creating basic geometry to represent real life objects. But when you are using Revit, you are enhancing geometry with real life information.
The platform is a holistic solution which automatically generates other views when you are working on one view. For example, if you are working on a floor plan, the elevation will also be updated automatically based on your inputs. The same applies when you are making a change in Revit- the change in one view is automatically represented in other views as well.
For example, If you create a change in the views of your mechanical system, it will be reflected in the actual model and all other applicable views will also get updated.
So when do you need to convert CAD to Revit modeling?
CAD is ideal for 2D drawings, where you need only precise line work such as elevation details or drawings. Revit, on the other hand, is perfect for modeling and can be used to develop cost schedules, foster collaboration and manage change. Revit modeling can go a long way to give you an edge over the competition and facilitate project management on the site.
So we can say that Revit is a powerful tool to plan, design, construct and operate new buildings. It helps you create 3D models of your building with all physical properties and interactions of building components. The platform also helps you calculate material list along with their pricing and quantities. You can also create cost schedules automatically in a simple manner.
Revit is also ideal for big projects and can accommodate the need to scale effectively. You don't have to worry about updating all your 2D plans as Revit does the job automatically to save time and effort. Revit also leaves no room for errors, as any conflict is detected instantly and can be corrected without delay.
Revit helps you to create high-quality 3D building models with all technical specifications and optimize building systems for maximum performance. We can help you create accurate Revit BIM models, convert CAD to Revit modeling and transform drawings or images into Revit BIM.
