Built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), Autodesk® Revit®
software combines features for architectural design, MEP and
structural engineering, and construction, in a single, comprehensive
application. The 2016 release continues to support user productivity
with improved Revit software performance and usability enhancements.
New features include MEP fabrication detailing within Revit,
improved structural reinforcement detailing, and improved workflows
specific to steel connection design and detailing.
Revit Features and Benefits:
Improved Revit project performance -
Work more efficiently with improved model performance enabled
by new features and settings in Revit.
Navigation during Redraw -
Navigate models more smoothly and continuously without having to
wait for the software to finish drawing elements at each step
when you pan, zoom, and orbit around a view. The Navigation
during Redraw feature speeds navigation by interrupting the
display of model elements as you move through the model.
Calculation setting options - Work
more efficiently, with improved model performance in large
projects enabled by new settings in the Calculations drop-down.
Loadable family instancing - Revit
takes better advantage of video hardware to provide faster
updates to views that contain multiple instances of families.
Linked file performance - Revit
models with links display faster, with geometric display
calculation working only on links that appear within the crop
Automatically linked views in PDF exports - Help
improve communication by more easily navigating PDFs exported
from Revit. Share your designs as electronic PDF files with
automatically linked views and sheets. Each view tag in the PDF
file is a hyperlink.
Work in perspective views - Improve
productivity with the new capability to make adjustments in
perspective views. You no longer always have to change views to
make quick changes with new tools and capabilities available in
perspective views including:
Editing tools—Move, Align, Pin, and Unpin.
Reset Target tool—Restores the position of the camera target
to the center of the field of view.
Toggle between the perspective and parallel representations
of the 3D view.
Improved IFC file usability - Use
existing geometry in a linked IFC model as a reference for
dimensions, alignment, snapping, and hosting of some face-based
families in a Revit model. When you link an IFC file, its
elements are assigned to a default phase. With the new IFC Links
and Rooms feature, when creating rooms in the host model you can
use many IFC-based elements to define room boundaries. When you
link an IFC file to the Revit project you can add rooms using
the IFC model elements. This improved IFC linking capability
further integrates open standards into Revit.
