Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the different versions of Revit, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- As you may be aware, there are a few different versions of Revit out there. In this movie I'd like to talk about some of the differences between the various versions and also discuss the focus of this course. So, the main focus of this course is Architectural features. And for Architecture we actually have three different versions of Revit that we should talk about. So, there is Revit, or Autodesk Revit, which is the full product. It's included with the Building Design Suite and it includes functionality for all three disciplines, Architure, MEP, and Structure. Then we actually have Revit Architecture.
Revit Architecture includes only the architectural functionality and just a little bit of structural functionality. The only real difference between Revit and Revit Architecture is essentially in the options dialog where you can choose which disciplines are of interest to you and turn them on and off. In the full version of Revit you can actually disable some of the disciplines, where in Revit Architecture you don't have that feature. Now we also have Revit LT. Revit LT is the newest of the versions and it came on the scene a few years ago and you can think of it as a limited version of Revit Architecture.
It's only focused on the Architecture discipline and it includes a subset of the functionality of the full architectural product. Now there are also other flavors of Revit for engineering that you may or may not be aware of. We also have stand-alone versions of Revit MEP and Revit Structure. Now naturally each of these is focused on those disciplines individually. This course does not cover the structural or the engineering functionality. So, if you're interested in those aspects of Revit then you might want to check out essential training for both Revit Structure and Revit MEP.
Now I'm gonna be focused on the architectural aspects of the software and from that point of view it really doesn't matter whether you have Autodesk Revit, Revit Architecture, or even Revit Lt. If you are using Revit LT there are a few movies which won't apply to you. So, be sure to check the FAQ that's included here on the course page to see which specific movies don't apply. Now, if you haven't actually purchased a Revit product yet, then you might be interested in more detail on what's different between them. So you can go out to the Autodesk website and there are a few comparison charts there that I would like to show you.
If you're interested in possibly going with Revit LT there's a comparison chart here that compares Revit LT to the full version of Revit. It goes feature by feature and it shows you which features are available and which ones are not available by comparing the two products. There's also a similar comparison chart that compares the Building Design Suite with just plain old Revit and also with AutoCAD. So there's lots of information available on the website for Autodesk and you can also check with your Autodesk reseller for more information and specifics on the various flavors of the products.

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
