Say Hello to Revit 2023!

From delivering on high impact productivity enhancements championed by our customers, to adding new desktop to cloud capabilities that unlock the power of data.

Revit 2023 offers architecture, engineering, and construction teams more fine-tuned, performant, and future-proofed software tools for designing and building in BIM.

Not only does 2023 offer new enhancements, but Revit is also celebrating its Silver Jubilee as the platform enters its 25th year! Originating in 1997, the software has grown to be a mature platform that continually improves each year.

What’s new to Revit 2023?

Revit 2023 offers significant enhancements to scheduling, structural analytical modelling, cloud capabilities for data management, 3D Sketch with Revit and FormIt Pro, performance upgrades and much, much more! 

Some of our favourite new features are as follows:
