What’s New with Revit 2018?

By Anna Liza Montenegro | Video

The new release of Autodesk Revit 2018 software is the latest step in the continual evolution and development of Autodesk’s software for multidiscipline connected BIM. Delivering tools for consistent, coordinated, and comprehensive modeling for architects, MEP and structural engineers and detailers, and construction contractors.

Review our webinar as Francis Sebastian, BIM Specialist from Microsol Resources explores new features, including:

  • 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.
  • Revit 2018 extends the power of global parameters, which helps embed design intent in a model to also apply to radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
  • New coordination model linking lets users use a Navisworks file as an underlay in Revit, making it easier to coordinate without side teams that might not be working in Revit.
  • Meeting along-time user request, Revit 2018 now includes Schedule and add parameters for links and groups, helping users to better understand and quantify a project.
  • Connecting conceptual design into the Revit design environment, Revit now supports SAT and Rhino file import.
  • With tools for additional control over steel connections, Revit 2018 improves the workflow between engineers and steel detailers, helping to reduce errors with more accurate estimating and detailing.
  • Fabrication modeling improvements in Revit 2018 help users to more efficiently model fabrication-ready elements using routing capabilities, and now supports detailed modeling of sloped piping elements.
  • Revit 2018 introduces a multistory stair object that enables faster and easier modeling of complex stair towers for buildings with many stories.
