.rvt File Extension

Developer: Autodesk
File type: Revit Project File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .rvt. Files with the file extension .rvt can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .rvt files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .rvt file?

A Revit project file can be created using the Revit software product line from Autodesk. The content of a Revit project file is integrated with data compilation specifications proprietary to Autodesk and the Revit application, and these Revit project files are also implemented with encoding standards agian proprietary to Autodesk and used for the RVT file format. These Revit project files are affixed with the .rvt extension, and the Revit software is classified as a Building Modeling Information (BIM) program that is integrated with a set of features useful for the development of visual 3D building designs. The data stored in these Revit project files include architectural detials associated to a building design project created by a Revit user, and can specifically contain elevations, floor plans and building sections among other images and metadata details that correspond to the Revit project file being viewed by the user. These Revit project files can be opened and viewed as a 3D scene fully rendered and displayed on the fly by the Revit software. Project settings are also stored in these .rvt files.

how to open a .rvt file?

Launch a .rvt file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .rvt file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .rvt files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .rvt file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .rvt file will open the correct application.

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 is an architectural design software that used mainly for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and for capturing and analyzation of design, design documentation, and construction. It provides models that will help in making informed design decisions to be able to support sustainable designs, fabrication, construction planning and clash detection. The basis for all building components that are designed in Revit is the Parametric Components or Families which helps in designing cabinetry and equipment or building parts, walls and columns. It also features a collaborative design process called the Revit Server which enables users to share models across the project team even if they are on different locations. It has an integrated collection of models on a single server which is accessible by users from the local server. This process allows multiple users to share information and save their projects in a central file. The built-in Redundancy helps in keeping this process secure an protected in cases where there's loss in WAN connectivity.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .rvt files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .rvt. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
