What’s New in Revit 2024

By Elizabeth Crofton | BIM, Training

New sample content in Revit 2024 highlights modeling and coordination best practices for multi-disciplinary design. Based on a real site in Brownsville, PA, “Snowdon Towers” was professionally modeled by an architecture and engineering team from a Scan to BIM dataset provided by Autodesk partner, Case Technologies.

Fresh from the Factory, Revit 2024 is rolling out globally! In this release, Autodesk combined eagerly anticipated additions, like Site Tools for landscape designers, with highly requested enhancements from the community, like Dark Theme and a more modern user interface. Here are three of the highlights:


Introducing Site Tools for Revit & Revit LT.

This new toolset supports the design and documentation of richly detailed landscapes. You can use Site Tools to:

  • Collect and rationalize existing conditions data from CAD Imports, CSV point files, and more.
  • Model your design intent freely and easily, with versatile site and massing tools for modeling topography.
  • Populate schedules, sheets, and views and calculate material quantities. Cut, fill, join, and run phasing scenarios. Use the design-to-documentation engine of Revit to save time and improve design quality when modeling landscape and site conditions.


Save time in concrete detailing.

Structural engineers and rebar detailers have new capabilities for creating, scheduling, and documenting rebar. Use the new bar bending details to:

  • Create reinforcement drawings and schedules with detailed fabrication instructions. With this new tool in Revit, when the model changes, the details adapt along with it.
  • Add and customize rebar bending details so that your views and sheets respect your typical practice.
  • Reduce errors and omissions in your document sets.


Evolve work together.

Link Coordination Model from Autodesk Docs into Revit makes it easier for project teams to sync and coordinate design deliverables. Keep project files light and teams on the same page.

  • Link models and views from any of the 60+ formats supported by Docs and the Autodesk Construction Cloud directly into Revit.
  • Underlay the coordination model as a visual reference when designing in Revit.
  • Reduce the need for interpretation when coordinating up-to-date design deliverables with partners and project teams.   




Also in release:

  • Spacemaker to Revit Sync
  • Twinmotion for Revit Auto-Sync
  • Insight Tech Preview for Revit 2024
  • Upgrades to Project Browser
  • Dynamo for Revit 2.17
  • New Revit Cloud Model to ACC Bridge connection
  • Revit Data Exchange Connector with Autodesk Docs 
  • Dark Theme and UI modernizations
  • New Model Content “Snowdon Towers”
  • Release of My Insights in Revit Home
  • Upgrades to Parameters Service with Autodesk Docs
  • Structural Analytical Modeling enhancements
  • Electrical Load Analysis enhancements
  • Energy Analytical Modeling enhancements
  • Ductwork stiffening enhancements
  • Layout upgrades for views, sheets, and schedules


What’s Next on the Road to Forma?

At Autodesk University 2022, they introduced the vision for Forma. Autodesk shared more about the industry cloud that will unify workflows across teams that design, construct, and operate the built environment.  

Autodesk announced that Spacemaker will create the foundation for Forma and revealed more about how Forma will enable data to flow fluidly, so the right details get to the right people at the right time.

If you are intrigued and wondering what the first offering on Forma will look like, then please join us on the 8th of May, for the official Forma launch event!

Watch out for additional news from Autodesk about Forma. We will share how industry leaders use the data that will shape architecture and AEC practices of the future.

If you’re a Revit user interested in staying up-to-date with the latest improvements, watch this video as Roger Liucci, Senior BIM Specialist from Microsol Resources, provides an in-depth look at the latest updates to Revit and showcases how they can improve your workflows and project outcomes.

During this video, you will learn about:

  • How these improvements allow for better collaboration and data exchange between different disciplines in a project, reducing errors and improving project efficiency.
  • Demonstration of new and updated tools for structural engineering, including enhancements to reinforcement modeling and detailing capabilities and a new steel connections workflow.
  • TopoSolid features in Revit, which allow users to create and modify topography directly in Revit, without the need for external software.
