Revit 2017 smartly utilized BIM features to further optimize efficient processes for smooth and stable workflow. Revit 2017 represents a specialized software for architects, as well as MEP and structural engineers as well as construction specialist. The optimum goal of software is to unite all disciplines working on a building project, so they are able work efficiently on a project using the same platform. Besides that, all participants remain connected while working on a building design or some construction-related processes. As result, the risk of data translation errors reduces and interdisciplinary communication improves, resulting in a more effective process of building design.
The following new features of Revit 2017 aim to optimize the entire workflow, from drafting and up to final design approval. Rendering in A360 allows to come up with high-resolution, photorealistic images within shorted time frames. Insight 360 feature allows to optimize performance of building with centralized access to advanced analysis engines and performance data. New solar analysis workflows shorten the time to take the decision, while improving the understanding of PV energy production. Besides that, Insight 360 also includes EnergyPlus, which aims to design dynamic thermal cooling and heating loads in Revit 2017.
Structural Analysis in Revit 2017 has undergone enhancements as well and allows to perform analysis from the cloud as a part of the BIM process. Design models now can be transferred from Revit directly to the cloud and users can perform static analysis, which aids in minimizing possible workflow disruptions. After the analysis is concluded, the results are being visualized and further explored in Revit.
In overall, more than 100 various performance enhancements and optimizations have been done to Revit 2017. Global parameters, modernized text editing as well as layout controls have been upgraded to smoothen the entire work process. Additional tools for automation model layout for MEP fabrication, as well as family-based rebar reinforcement connectors and IFC4 support have also been included in Revit 2017.
With Revit 2017 designers are able to access a higher level of detailing required for building, downstream fabrication, as well as projects modelling regardless of size or complexity.

What customers say
Excellent customer support. Well done! With the help of the support service, a non-trivial, from my point of view, problem with AutoCAD activation was solved. Helped to adapt the interface to the familiar UI 2014, sent an adaptation file. When I applied for additional licenses again, I was informed about a discount campaign, which made it possible to purchase two licenses for the price of one! Thanks!
Our company acquired Autodesk software, this was our first experience. Your experts helped with the choice, advised available, promptly helped to purchase the product. We were pleased with the cooperation with you, we will be happy to recommend Procadis soft store to our friends! Thank you, success in your work!

Good company, with low prices and excellent support for all issues. At the suggestion of this company, the licensed AutoCAD 2017 was replaced with the AEC package. They worked quickly, well done! Continue in the same spirit!
I have been using Revit since 2011. For me, this is the best BIM software for almost any project task. The only downside for me is that there is little embedded content, but the built-in tools help me develop the missing components. It's also great that updates come out every year.
