Autodesk Revit is a type of BIM software; a tool that is for the architectural design professions, specifically architects, structural engineers, and building systems engineers (MEP- mechanical, electrical, plumbing). This is demonstrated via the three types of Revit: Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, and Revit MEP.
Particularly in the US, Revit is prolific in the AEC industry. A large majority of architecture/ engineering firms use Revit. It is also increasingly being utilized by the construction side, with many projects and firms requiring BIM deliverables.
