Autodesk® Revit® software is built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), helping professionals design, build, and maintain higher-quality buildings. Using the information-rich models created with Autodesk Revit software, professionals can collaborate to deliver better projects more efficiently. Any design changes made in Revit models are automatically updated throughout the model, keeping designs and documentation coordinated and more reliable. Autodesk Revit includes features for architectural design, mechanical, electrical and plumbing, structural engineering, and construction and is available as part of Autodesk® Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate editions, providing a comprehensive solution for the entire project team.
What's New - Core Features
- Improved software performance
Get better performance, using less memory to analyze energy for large models. Revit 2016 can also edit and regenerate complex toposurfaces, subregions, and building pads. Produce documents more quickly with smarter, smaller, and more powerful files. All text is searchable, and you can attach PDF files to your drawings for better performance.
- 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 speeds navigation by interrupting the display of model elements as you move through the model.
- Automatically linked views in PDF exports
Improve communication by navigating PDFs exported from Revit more easily. Share your designs as electronic PDF files with automatically linked views and sheets. Each view tag in the PDF file is a hyperlink.
- Reveal Constraints Mode
Better understand the reasons behind your Revit model’s behavior using Reveal Constraints mode to see all dimension and alignment constraints in a view.
- Dynamo graphical programming interface
Enhance and extend model behavior without knowing how to program. Dynamo provides a visual programming environment that is accessible to designers, letting you visually create logic that drives the geometry and behavior of Revit elements and data.
- Work in perspective views
Improve productivity with the new capability to make adjustments in perspective views. Make quick changes without changing views with new tools and capabilities available in perspective views. Use editing tools to Move, Align, Pin, and Unpin. The 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.
- A360 Collaboration for Revit
Connect building and construction project teams with centralized access to BIM project data in the cloud with A360 Collaboration for Revit Cloud Service Subscription. Stay connected in real time using the Communicator chat tool within models.
- 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, further integrating open standards into Revit. Use many IFC-based elements to define room boundaries when creating rooms in the host model.
