Revit vs. ArchiCAD

An in-depth key feature comparision

Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Technology is transforming the way that buildings and infrastructure are designed, constructed, and operated. And it’s helping to improve decision making and performance across the building and infrastructure lifecycle.



Revit & ArchiCAD

Revit BIM software helps architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) teams create high-quality buildings and infrastructure. 

Introduced in 2002 by Autodesk, it is not only of incredible help to architects, but also assists everyone in the construction industry – from engineers to project managers.

ArchiCAD is also a BIM Software which offers CAD solutions for all aspects of the Build design process including exteriors, interiors, etc.

With an extensive toolkit, a wide range of software applications are integrated in Archicad to cover most of the design needs of an architectural office.

With Revit & ArchiCAD being the two biggest names in the industry, let’s have a look at what they can offer you!

    Why Use Revit?

    Run projects more efficiently

    Ease production burdens by using built-in automation for documenting design and managing deliverables.

    Unify teams and workflows

    Save, sync and share model-based BIM and CAD data in Revit and connect multi-disciplinary teams and workflows.

    Take command of your design data

    Use Revit as the data backbone of your BIM process. Develop and deploy standards, workflows and content.

    What You Can Do With Revit

    Quickly define and document design intent

    With tools for sketching, scheduling, annotating and document production, Revit drives efficient BIM workflows and includes specialised tools and automation for every AEC discipline.

    Connect seamlessly with project teams

    Autodesk supports the way AEC project teams work together any time, anywhere. With Revit cloud worksharing and Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro, keep your teams in sync and your projects on track.

    Explore, iterate and refine design decisions

    With integrated analysis tools and interoperability support for a broad range of CAD and BIM tools, Revit helps project teams uncover insights and drive outcomes with data.
