Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) are undergoing a digital transformation. Information sharing, processes, and the management of things are all being transformed by technology. BIM virtual design and construction can integrate a construction project with these technologies. So, what is BIM, and how is it affecting the industry?

Revit is a Building Design software that helps you in Design and Drafting of a facility. It has features that helps Architecture, Engineering and Construction professionals to Design, Analyze, Visualize and produce Drawings for all stages of Design, from Concept to Construction.
Toposurface or Topographical surface is created by using Toposurface Tool located on Massing & Site Tab. This tool allows us to create Site Topography in complete three dimensions. We can study slopes, identify buildable areas, plan out roads and paths. We can identify areas of potential problem as well as areas of opportunity. In a way, we can perform the Site Analysis in a fair amount of detail. In a situation, where you are working on a project, that is on a large piece of land and has great complexities, site planning is done using other software such as Autodesk Civil 3D
You often need to convert AutoCAD to Revit. At times to convert “Standard Details” to Revit or use DWG files to build a Revit Model.
Creating Construction Drawings on Revit requires a slightly different approach than AutoCAD. Architectural Construction Documents in Revit helps you develop these documents faster as Elevations and Sections are generated automatically so you do not need to spend time drafting these. Revit also helps you develop your Details Library where all such details can be copied across projects. Creating Architectural Construction Documents in Revit is a process. Use effectively can help you save time
This article describes the process of how to use Revit to develop Architectural Constructions Documents.
Revit VS AutoCAD. How do the two compare? You have been using AutoCAD for a long time, should you switch to Revit? What are the benefits that Revit offers over AutoCAD? This article discusses AutoCAD vs Revit describing the features and uses of each. AutoCAD is a Drafting software and has been around since 1984 when it was first introduced by Autodesk, While Revit is a 3D Modeling tool that enables BIM (Building Information Modeling)
Scan to BIM is a process of using Point Cloud to develop a 3D BIM or Revit Model. The Point Cloud is generated using various types of scanning technologies. The type of Scanner and the process used depends on the objective of the Scan to BIM Project.
Scan to BIM can be used for a wide range of applications where As-Built Surveys are needed.
What do you do when you have built up a whole library of standard details in AutoCAD and now you’ve switched to Revit? Do you continue to use AutoCAD and print out sheets from within it? In a situation where you’ve not built up your Revit Details Library, Importing CAD in Revit may be a good starting point. Eventually it is a good idea to do these details in Revit itself using Revit lines and families. To get the best results and save you time, you need to do little setup before you import your DWG files,
