Revit 2017 – Some exciting features

Autodesk has invented new software Revit 2017 that helps users to create better models and increase their communication and performance skills in the workflow.

 

Autodesk has announced some new key and upgraded features for its main software Revit which is designed for increasing the performance of the software and helping the users to create better models and communicating about the designs. The newest version of this software Revit 2017 is built for the works offered by BIM for the architectural, MEP and the structural engineering etc. The new features in Revit 2017 will be helpful in driving more powerful processes within an increased, multi-discipline BIM workflow.

 

This new software is the fastest and best performing one till now and the new improvements more than 100 functions help the software for keeping up with the most demandable users. It also works faster to display only the visible elements of a view and the hidden drawing elements. Revit 2017 helps in user’s productivity with the various improvements and user-requested updates which simply helps to make the features easier to use.

 

Revit 2017 allows users tools for creating models which can be more precisely and fully represent the things to be built, connect with design and fabrication workflows. The Global Parameters has the features to help in encoding and capturing design that are decided within a model by enabling the users for defining relationships between the building elements. The parameters are used for driving the dimensions and the values in a project. With the help of this software the designers can add the higher level of the detail which is needed for downstream fabrication and building, modeling projects of different sizes and the complexity. The automation of the fabrication model layout and converting design level into the fabrication level of detail elements can be done by the Mechanical detailers. Contractors can prepare their model elements more quickly than before for the detailed coordination in fabrication and installation. The structural engineers also get helpful things from it. As the designers can upgrade the explanation of design intent or the level of detailed for the reinforcement modeling and documentation for the better connected steel design for the detailed workflows.

 

Revit is the base of the active BIM processes for many architects, engineers and construction professionals etc. as they can capture document and share project design data. It is also helpful in the documentation of project’s details more efficiently with the new WYSIWYG Text Editor that has the options for text placements also. It raises the communication abilities in a way that help the users for sharing the data with both Revit and in extended BIM workflows. Data sharing has been simplified within this new software that is improved with new tools for simplifying the reuse of the schedules.

 

Revit 2017 is one of the first BIM tools that support IFC4 and it facilitates BIM interoperability and data sharing within a connected workflow under Revit. Revit also provides the new Autodesk Formit 360 Converter by which users could convert Formit, RFA and SKP files and continue the development in designs in Revit. The collaboration of the Autodesk A360 and Revit 2017 enables the easier use of the acceptance service for project team collaboration with cloud work sharing.

 

The new software of Revit make possible of communicating design with compelling 3D visualizations. It also adds depth and burst to elevations and sections in the coordination views with the new Depth Cueling option.

 

Render with Autodesk Raytracer featuring more accurate settings, video card agnostic and other things more quickly and accurately. After the release of Revit 2017, Autodesk is abandoning some of its software like Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit Structure and Autodesk Revit MEP software by replacing them and providing recent subscribers to each solution.

Revit 2018 – New Reinforced Concrete features

In this article the new features of Revit are explained. Also there is some information about Revit that will help to understand their work properly. The features and work of Autodesk and Revit are discussed here.

This article also states about the improvements of the new features, it will help the users to create models easily, there are use of curves and straight lines that will give the designs a new look. Here is the following link for observing the diagrams: revitstructureblog.wordpress.com.

Autodesk Revit is building information modeling software for architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers and contractors developed by Autodesk. It allows users to design a building and structure and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements, and access building information from the building model’s database.

Revit can be used as a very powerful collaboration tool between different disciplines in the building design sphere. The different disciplines that use Revit approach the program from unique perspectives. The Revit work environment allows users to manipulate whole buildings or assemblies or individual 3D shapes. An experienced user can create realistic and accurate families ranging from furniture to lighting fixtures, as well as import existing models from other programs.

  • In each release of Revit it is seen that a continuous trickle is there in new features and improvements to the Reinforced Concrete Modeling and detailing capabilities. Most of them are already firmly established and now Autodsek moves on to the reinforcement of complex concrete forms and cross platform workflows.
  • It is previously stated Autodesk have some stiff competition and are quickly closing the gaps. There is also an expected delivery of a BIM project which is a complete 3D model and it may longer be appropriate to issue flat 2D drawings and a bending schedule. Some new tools are very useful in Civil Projects as Tunnels, Bridges and roadside structures.
    • The new features are tested and at first the main function of the reinforcement of complex concrete features are shown. The new functions are very useful and save a lot of time. It need extra control over double curves and twists and likely have to use something like Dynamo to place ‘real’ reinforcement in a logical way.
  • Another refurbished tool is the Rebar graphical constrains. This tool enables reinforcement bar to be constrained in 3D views as well as the traditional 2D views. The user can selected the rebar plane or the end points of the bar and then constrained to a relevant plane on the host element.
    • The reinforcement bar also has Bar Handles that allows the physical leg lengths to be dynamically edited. It is easy now to directly import a 3D solid from another CAD application and host reinforcement directly into the elements.
    • The 3D ramp has been modeled in AutoCAD and then directly imported and reinforced within Revit. In conclusion Autodesk continue to strengthen the Revit application and make the legacy 2D detailing a think of past.
