Autodesk Revit is our approach to building information modeling (BIM). Revit allows architects and engineers to explore early design concepts and forms, and more accurately maintain their vision through design, documentation, and construction. Revit allows a user to make a change, and it’s automatically updated across the project. Analysis of BIM data supports sustainable design, clash detection, construction planning, and fabrication.
BIM Platform Manager, Emile Kfouri, recently observed how one could start with Project Dragonfly and then add detail using Revit.
What is Project Dragonfly?
Project Dragonfly is a web-based application for home improvement projects targeting entry level “designers” like the homeowner. Dragonfly's intuitive design tools help you rapidly create and furnish a floor plan, experimenting in real time with your ideas in 2D and 3D before making it real! Project Dragonfly also enables you to share any saved designs with others by simply clicking the “Share” icon in the upper left hand corner of the Designer window. The site has seen very brisk traffic since its launch in March.
For professional designers who use Project Dragonfly, you can export the floor plan and furnishings as a Revit RVT file.
Project Dragonfly is the second Autodesk SaaS solution that uses Revit technology in the back end. The original trail blazers were the Autodesk Seek team.

Thanks Emile! Looking at interoperability between traditional and software as a service applications is alive in the lab.
