I have been working through the new features in Revit and I have to say that there are a lot this year that will make a difference to the way that you work. We have a playlist of videos on Cadline Community that will take you through the main ones; click on the link at the bottom of this article. However, I wanted to highlight the ones that I think are particularly useful or a long time coming. In particular, in my next article, I will talk more about the ability to link Navisworks models into a Revit project. This functionality effectively means that you are able to bring more than fifty different file formats into the model for co-ordination and referencing purposes.
Autodesk has now released Revit 2018. I thought I would highlight some of the great new features below.
Interface and File tab
First off is the new simplified interface and File tab. This gives it a modern feel and brings it in line with other products like Inventor.
Revit Link Coordination Model
You can now link a nwd or nwc file into the Revit project. This can even be cut using the section view tool or even the section box in a 3D view. Great for coordination of site plans.
With the Multistory stair tool, stairs are now connected to the levels, so when the levels change, the stairs automatically adjust.
Control a circuit pathway
Circuit paths can now be edited, this gives you more control:
Multi-Point Routing for Fabrication items
This lets you route fabrication items in the same way you are used to with standard Revit MEP items.
