Most people believe that The AEC Associates Revit Modeling Services have little to do with landscape projects, having an inclination mainly towards architects and engineers. This is one reason the landscape architects rarely employ Revit Modeling Services even though the inclination of Revit software for building industry professionals is merely a myth. Even though the software was primarily built to help the building professionals design, build and maintain high quality buildings; it has many features that can help you create excellent landscape designs for both large and small projects.
Benefits of Revit for landscape architects
· Better collaboration
Revit Modeling services enable landscape architects to work in cohesion with other AEC professionals. Most of these professionals employ Revit, so BIM allows them to make their inputs to the shared information resource; landscape architect can also access the data and enjoy a better collaboration with other stakeholders.
· Accurate modeling of exterior site elements
Revit has many tools that allow a landscape designer come up with accurate modeling of exterior site design elements; for example, retaining walls, area of paving; site fixtures like fences, seating etc. A database associated with these parametric objects can be used for detailing,, quantity calculation, procurements and future maintenance requirements etc.
· Efficient workflow
Revit Modeling services ensure a greater work efficiency for the landscape professionals. Revit workflow is centered on the creation of a virtual 3d model of the design, so the alterations to the design are carried across all the 2D and 3D drawings, guaranteeing a smooth and efficient workflow.
· Rendering tools
Revit software possesses some very effective rendering tools for exterior site elements, like paving areas and various site fixtures. Toposurface is one of the tools offered by Revit, for instance, that allows for creating 3D terrain models. One has to place spot levels or import 3D terrain data from another available source to create a basic top surface.
