What is a RVT file
Revit, a program for building information modeling (BIM), stores project information in an RVT file. This project file contains all information needed to work on an architectural project such as sections and rooms, elevation, floor plans, and more. This information is stored in 3D for advanced modeling. Project settings and other related data like notes and metadata are also included in the project.
The 3D data inside the RVT file serves as a work in progress for architects and other people using Revit for BIM. On the basis of this project file, a fully rendered 3D scene of a building, room or house can be displayed.
Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open RVT documents:
- Autodesk AutoCAD Architecture (Windows)
- Autodesk MEP (Windows)
- Autodesk Revit Structure (Windows)
