Revit 2018 is the latest step in the continual evolution and development of Revit for multidiscipline BIM. We are striving to deliver tools for consistent, coordinated, and complete modeling for architects, MEP and structural engineers and detailers, and construction contractors. Last year, we put out our first public Revit road map and this release marks some movement along that path. The road map defines forward-looking themes that guide and prioritize the development of Revit features and functionality with input coming directly from you via the Revit Ideas Page. We think Revit 2018 is the best yet.
As Autodesk moves to a subscription model, we are working to ensure that Revit delivers more frequent value with multiple releases per year. Revit 2018 includes and builds on new features and functionality that were first made available to subscribers in the Revit 2017.1 and 2017.2 point releases.
Our goal is to help designers and engineers provide accurate design intent models and gives detailers the ability to develop models to a higher level of fidelity for fabrication and installation purposes.
Our VP of BIM products, Jim Lynch, says “Revit 2018 is optimized to be part of a foundational BIM portfolio that serves the major design disciplines of architecture, MEP, and structure, and the major material trades with MEP, steel, and concrete,”. “This enables designers, the trades, and contractors to model with greater levels of detail that can drive the drive the fabrication process seamlessly.”
We want you to focus on design rather than on the software, Revit 2018 helps you capture your design intent with productivity improvements that automate workflows and simplify painful multi-step processes.
Key new or enhanced features include:
– The Dynamo Player, released with Revit 2017.1, is now part of Revit 2018, offering a utility that plays scripts created in the Dynamo graphical programming interface, making it easier for users to apply scripts that can enhance and extend Revit model behavior. This tool lets everyone enjoy the power of Dynamo’s visual scripting without having to be an expert yourself.
– Revit 2018 extends the power of global parameters, which help embed design intent in a model to also apply to radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
– The new coordination model linking lets you use a Navisworks file as an underlay in Revit, making it easier to coordinate with outside teams that might not be working in Revit. This lets you extend Revit and we are excited to see what you start to use this functionality to accomplish.
