Kenesto Plug-In for Revit
The Kenesto Plug-In for Revit serves the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Industry. With Kenesto, Autodesk Revit customers are able to store, share, view and version Revit files. Kenesto – along with our Kenesto Drive feature – allows users the ability to obtain access to the current file, regardless of how many recipients the file has been shared with. With our exclusive editing writes, users can be assured that all edits are captured, making overwriting of files virtually impossible.

NOTE: Users must have a licensed version of Revit (or a trial license) to create Revit files for sharing.
