How do architects use BIM?

Architects use Building Information Modeling (BIM) throughout the design process to help improve quality and accelerate design processes with integrated workflows for concept design, modeling, multidiscipline coordination, and construction documentation.

What is BIM architecture software?

Use a more fluid process to create conceptual designs that you can easily move into BIM workflows to complete detailed design work.

  • Revit

    Use this BIM tool for every phase of your project, from concept to visualization. Capture and communicate concepts and precise design intent.

  • FormIt

    This conceptual design software allows you to unlock your ability to collaborate, iterate, and analyze your designs.

  • AutoCAD

    Architects, engineers, and construction professionals rely on computer-aided design (CAD) software to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.
