New Revit Tools-Features Available Soon for 2010 Products

**Credit goes to David Light where he provided information about this subject on his blog…especially for those of us that couldn’t attend**

As you may have already seen out on the blog-o-sphere, some bloggers were invited to see a sneak peak at some new features the folks at Autodesk are getting ready to roll out for the Revit 2010 products…which is being called the Revit 2010 Subscription Advantage Pack.

Unlike previous extensions they’ve released to subscription customers, this is going to be very similar to a “point” release…kind of like they did in the Release 9 days (before they went to the year designation) where they introduced 9.1 around the same time of the year.  So this will be a whole new release from the sounds of it.

There is one small thing…

It’s only going to be available to subscription customers!!

Here is a list of improvements that will be included with this new release…

  • Additional keyboard shortcut commands
  • A UI to control keyboard shortcuts
  • Conditional formatting in all products
  • DWG export improvements
  • Text formatting – from shortcuts
  • Find and replace text
  • Model lines to Detail lines and back
  • Link file improvements
  • API improvements
  • Autodesk Revit Model Review
  • Revit DBlink
  • Image modeler will now be included so you can create point cloud data from images and export this to DWG and import this into Revit
  • Wood Wall Framing tool

Also, many have been wanting/waiting to see some of the tools in Revit Structure to be available in Revit Arch…the wait is over!  These tools will now be included in Revit Architecture…

  • Curved beams
  • Beam copping
  • Create Trusses
  • Tag beam systems
  • Slab directions and decking
  • Slanted columns
  • Split with Gap

One the new features/release is available for download (which sounds like possibly this week), I will throw out a post mentioning that they are available.  I’ll also post as I can about the new features.
