Although Autodesk Revit is not a tool I use, I did want to pass on some news that hit the Revit world recently. Autodesk Revit LT was announced this week. This is a simplified application designed to help small AEC firms transition to a BIM workflow with a cost-effective tool built on the Revit platform.

Below is some basic information from Autodesk. Please visit the home page for Revit LT for more details. Read more about Autodesk announces Autodesk Revit LT 2013
