How to Convert Paper Drawings to Revit
What is Revit and how is it used?
Revit® is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software product by AutoDesk. This application includes features that enable it to be used for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering, and construction. Revit users design, plan and track the various stages in a building’s lifecycle from concept to construction and later demolition.
But what happens if the building was designed and built in the pre-Revit days and you would like to be able to use Revit’s BIM capabilities to plan and track remodeling projects, tenant build-outs, building maintenance and other activities within the building’s life span? You may have the building’s plans in CAD files, or even in paper drawings. Can you still make use of Revit’s BIM efficiencies? The answer is a resounding YES!
