Features

Features for MEP engineering

Revit® software provides mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers with tools to design even the most complex building systems. Revit supports Building Information Modeling (BIM), to help drive more accurate design, analysis, and documentation of efficient building systems from concept through construction. Information-rich models support design throughout the building lifecycle.

    Analysis

  • Energy analysis using building element

    Perform energy analysis using detailed Revit models.

  • Energy Analysis for Revit

    Energy Analysis tools in Revit support sustainable design decision making early in the design process.

    Collaboration

  • IFC Linking New

    Now an IFC file can be linked into an existing Revit project.

  • Worksharing

    Worksharing distributes the power of the parametric building modeling environment across the project team.

  • Revit Server

    Revit Server helps project teams in different locations to more easily collaborate on shared Revit models across a wide-area network (WAN).

  • Vault integration

    Vault Collaboration software is designed to work with Revit.

  • Autodesk 360 integration

    Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate customers who have Maintenance Subscription can access integrated Autodesk 360 features, including rendering and energy analysis.

  • IFC Certification

    Revit 2015 has been certified by BuildingSMART International for IFC version 2x3 Coordination View import and export. 

  • Bidirectional links, multiple analysis packages

    The structural analytical model in Revit software can be bi-directionally linked with Robot Structural Analysis Professional software.

  • Interference check

    Use interference checking to scan your Revit model for collisions between elements.

    Design

  • Trim/Extend Multiple Elements New

    Trim / Extend has been updated to enable for box selection of multiple elements.

  • Family Parameter Order Adjustment New

    Easily adjust the Family Parameter order to company standards.

  • Tooltips for Family Parameters New

    Improve learnability by customizing Revit MEP tooltips and communicating parameters and their use.

  • Calculation methods for pressure drop New

    Calculate pressure drop for duct and pipe using either Haaland or Colebrook equations in Mechanical Settings.

  • Assembly Code Settings New

    New Manage Assembly Code Setting dialog allows user to change UniformatClassifications.txt location.

  • Conceptual design tools

    Revit software offers easy-to-use conceptual design tools that support your creative flow.

  • Autodesk Exchange

     Autodesk Exchange enables you to access extended Revit functionality and an expanded content library.

  • Parametric components

    Parametric components, also known as families, are the basis for all building components designed in Revit.

  • Bidirectional associativity

    In Revit, all model information is stored in one place. Any information that gets changed is effectively changed throughout the Revit model.

  • HVAC/electrical design room color-fill plans

    Communicate design intent visually with room color-fill plans.

  • Piping and electrical content

    Many types of electrical content—including communications, fire safety, data, and nurse call—are available from within Revit.

  • System browser

    Gain greater flexibility during design, and focus on the systems that are important to you with the system browser feature.

  • Enhanced MEP systems

    Create and name custom duct and piping system types.

  • Sloped piping

    In Revit software for MEP engineering, sloped piping tools support enhanced productivity for piping design.

  • Point cloud tools

    Point cloud tools connect laser scans directly into the BIM process, helping to accelerate renovation and retrofit projects.

  • Temporary view templates

    Minimize the need for saving and maintaining working views. This feature allows you to change view properties without affecting the saved view state.

    Documentation

  • Enhanced Hidden lines New

    Parameter to control the visibility of Hidden Lines in your views.

  • Revision improvements New

    You can now delete revisions and better sketch revision clouds shapes.

  • Tag improvements New

    When you move a tagged element, or drag the tag head, the tag leader and elbow adjustment behavior is now consistent with that of text leaders.

  • Enhanced Schedules/material takeoffs New

    Schedule Enhancements with Parameters, Filter & Grand Totals

  • Images in Schedules New

    Include images in schedules to convey graphical information for elements.

  • Keynoting Settings New

    Keynoting revision dialog has a single path with absolute / relative / library locations.

  • View References New

    Improved functionalty when changing the referenced view after a view reference has been created.

  • Duplicate Views New

    When you duplicate a view "Copy 1" is now added to the name.

  • Tapped duct and pipe tags New

    Now tag a numerical value along a tapped duct or pipe that varies along its length.

  • Interface to external databases

    Facilitate communications with third-party tools by outputting Revit model data to any ODBC-compliant database.

  • Panel schedules

    Work dynamically and experience greater flexibility by displaying panel schedule totals in current or load values.

  • Tag on placement/by category

    Tag mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components as they are being placed instead of tagging them as a separate set of steps.

  • Interoperability

    Interoperability features enable you to work more efficiently with members of your extended project team.

  • Enhanced schedules

    Enjoy greater control of schedule formatting and increased access to data within the building information model.

  • Material Takeoff

    This tool helps calculate detailed material quantities and track material quantities in cost estimates.

  • DWG, DWF, DXF, and DGN support

    Revit imports, exports, and links your data with popular formats, including DWG™, DXF™, DGN, and IFC.

    Visualization

  • Sketchy lines New

    Achieve a hand drawn, informal sketch look, by just pushing a button.

  • Anti-aliasing improvements New

    Turn on Anti-aliasing per view to smooth out lines on the screen.

  • Displaced views

    Create exploded views of building designs to more clearly visualize building assemblies and view construction sequencing.

  • Design visualization

    Capture design ideas in a near-photorealistic state.

  • Rendering

    Cloud-based rendering helps designers, architects, engineers, and contractors to reduce time and project costs.
