Autodesk Revit: A Comprehensive Solution
Revit software is specifically built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), helping building professionals design, build, and maintain higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings. Autodesk Revit is now available as an application that combines the capabilities of Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit MEP, and Autodesk Revit Structure software.
Revit Architecture available in Suites:
Revit Architecture Suite
Building Design Suite
Autodesk Revit Architecture building design software works the way architects and designers think, so you can develop higher-quality, more accurate architectural designs. Built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), Autodesk Revit Architecture helps you capture and analyze concepts and maintain your vision through design, documentation, and construction. Make more informed decisions with information-rich models to support sustainable design, construction planning, and fabrication. Automatic updates keep your designs and documentation coordinated and more reliable.
Revit MEP available in Suites:
Revit MEP Suite
Building Design Suite
Autodesk Revit MEP Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers supports more accurate and efficient building systems design projects from concept through construction.
* Design building systems more accurately using coordinated, consistent information inherent in the intelligent Revit MEP model.
Revit Structure available in Suites:
Revit Structure Suite
Building Design Suite
Infrastructure Design Suite
Plant Design Suite
Autodesk Revit Structure Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for structural engineering provides tools specifically built for structural design and analysis. With the advantage of BIM, Revit Structure helps to:
* Improve multi-discipline coordination of structural design documentation
Lighting Analysis for Revit
The results are validated against Radiance, a commonly used simulation tool, and displayed in-canvas more quickly. Lighting Analysis for Revit also offers automated daylighting analysis for LEED.
Use the new Link IFC tool to link an IFC file to the current project. If you later change the IFC file and reload the project, the project updates to reflect the changes. Linked geometry has much better fidelity and associated parameters come into the Revit environment with the correct values and units.
Tooltips for Family Parameters
Users can now customize Revit MEP tooltips to help describe and communicate parameters and their intended use, to help improve overall product learnability.
Trim/Extend Multiple Elements
When drawing a selection box from right to left, the elements do not have to be contained in the box to be selected. When drawing from left to right, only elements fully contained in the box are selected. This will improve your productivity by minimizing the steps it takes.
Family Parameter Order Adjustment
By default, new family parameters are now added in ascending alphabetic order to the parameter list, within the group that you selected when creating the parameter. Use the Sorting Order buttons (Ascending and Descending) to sort the parameters alphabetically for the current family. To further modify the order, select a parameter and use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to change the order of the parameters within a group. This parameter order is maintained in the Properties palette (instance parameters) and Type Properties dialog (type parameters) for the family when it is loaded into a project.
Assembly Code Settings
The new Manage dialog allows you to modified the UniformatClassifications.txt location. There is a new warning indicator if there is an issue reading the Assembly Code file with an unsuccessful reload notification. The last loaded version of the Assembly code file is loaded into the document when open even if not found.
Enhanced Hidden lines
Structural and MEP users now are able to turn off their hidden lines for an entire view. Show or hide the hidden lines of your geometry independent of what discipline your view is set to.
In view properties, you can use the new Show Hidden Lines parameter to control the display of hidden lines in the current view. Define the parameter for view templates. Easily see the hidden lines of openings in Walls and Floors. Display all hidden lines automatically in 3D views for better documentation.
Deleting a revision removes the revision and all of the revision's associated clouds and tags from the model. Use standard draw tools, such as a line or rectangle, to sketch the revision cloud shape. Pressing the Spacebar, you can flip the arc direction in the cloud shape. Specify the minimum arc length for revisions clouds in a project on the Sheet Issues/Revisions dialog.
When you move or adjust the tag, the portion of the leader from the element to the elbow is flexible, while the portion from the elbow to the tag remains fixed.
The instance property Elevation at Top has been added to isolated foundations, wall foundations, and foundation slabs. Elevation at Top specifies the elevation of the highest point or plane of the foundation. You can use this information in tags when documenting a project.
Enhanced Schedules/material takeoffs
Base and top constraint wall parameters are now available for schedule (Base Constraint, Base Offset, Top Constraint, Top Offset & Unconnected Height)
Grand Totals can now be customized using the ‘Custom Grand Total Title’ field and the Schedule Properties ‘Filter’ options have been expanded from 4 to 8 rows.
Images in Schedules
Image Instance and Type properties have been added to many elements to allow you to associate an image with an element instance or type. These images can then be included in schedules and will display when the schedule is placed on a sheet.
Simplification of dialog to a single path with absolute, relative or library locations. There is a new warning indicator if there is an issue reading the keynote file with an unsuccessful reload notification. The last loaded version of the Keynote file is loaded into the document to add keynote tags when open even if not found.
Change the view reference in reference callouts, reference sections, and reference elevations after the reference has been created, as needed.
When you duplicate a dependent view, the default name for the copy is “ Dependent 1”. The copied view has the correct focus in the Project Browser (so you can rename the view) and the copy of the view is open in the drawing area.
Now, with more granular control, you can turn on Anti-aliasing for specific views, to help reduce the need for additional computing time, and improve performance.
Presentation Sketchy Lines graphics gives you two parameters for adjusting the look of the sketchy lines, Jitter and Extension. The tool is available in all views and you can work while Sketchy Lines are turned on.
Ray Trace usability improvements
Ray trace view mode now renders faster and without white "fireflies".
