Revit 2011 Blogger Webcast

Here are some bullet-point highlights I took from the Blogger Webcast today for Revit Architecture 2011…

  • Design Options and Worksets accessible via the Status Bar
  • Workset visibility updates
  • Box option around Text
  • Select All Instances in View
  • Decals show in the new Realistic View
  • 1 Mile radius from Origin limit has been extended to 10 miles
  • Consistent Material Library between 2011 products – Revit has new materials
  • 4 Core limit removed for Rendering in Revit
  • Background images for Rendering
  • Last Command is remembered, accessed via right-click or the Enter key
  • Filters through Links
  • Tagging elements though links
  • Editing base sketch when working with Massing (this was missing in 2010)
  • (some) Structural Tools are core in Revit Arch, not part of a subscription pack.  Things like sloped columns, enhanced beam system tools, curved beams, floor decking (sorry, no roof deck), etc.
  • NWC Exporter will now have the ability to kick out Room info and objects
  • Interactive Sun Path

And I know I don’t talk much about MEP, but WOW…2011 looks nice!  They really went to town with Revit MEP 2011 and have some very nice new features.
