Features

What's new in Revit 2018

New and enhanced Revit features enable consistent, co-ordinated and complete modelling for multi-discipline design that extends to detailing and construction.

  • Co-ordination models

    Use a Navisworks file as a lightweight context to work with others on your project. (Video: 1.26 min.)

  • Schedule groups and Revit links

    To better understand and quantify your project, create schedules of links and groups in the model. (Video: 1.12 min.)

  • Enhanced

    Global parameters

    Embed design intent with project-wide parameters that now work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints. (Video: 1.30 min.)

  • Multi-storey stairs

    Quickly create and modify multi-storey buildings by connecting stairs to the levels in your project. (Video: 1.21 min.)

  • Enhanced

    Railings

    You now have more control when creating railings. Includes hosting railings on topography, automatic adjustment to stairs and post placement. (Video: 1.30 min.)

  • Enhanced

    MEP Fabrication modelling

    Revit lets you model sloped pipe part by part, and use multipoint routing for fabrication elements. (Video: 2.03 min.)

  • Enhanced

    MEP design and analysis

    Manipulate the circuit pathways, define your own space types and include outdoor air requirements. (Video: 2.08 min.)

  • Enhanced

    Mechanical simulation

    Flow and pressure-drop data is now connected to the pump and to the computation processes in the background. (Video: 1.49 min.)

  • Rebar for complex geometry

    Place rebar in free-form concrete objects. Reinforce imported concrete elements with improved varying rebar distribution. (Video: 1.38 min.)

  • Rebar graphical constraints in 3D

    Complete model definitions faster by editing rebar logic in 3D views with in-canvas graphical manipulation.
    (Video: 1.04 min.)

  • Additional steel connections

    More than 100 new connections. Now you can create connections for custom, user-defined families. (Video: 1.59 min.)

  • Enhanced

    Collaboration for Revit

    Cloud worksharing service now installs with Revit. New sync with central window displays progress of the operation.

More features

Platform
