Now an IFC file can be linked into an existing Revit project.
Use the new Link IFC tool to link an IFC file to the current project. If you later change the IFC file and reload the project, the project updates to reflect the changes. Linked geometry has much better fidelity and associated parameters come into the Revit environment with the correct values and units.
Trim / Extend has been updated to enable for box selection of multiple elements.
When drawing a selection box from right to left, the elements do not have to be contained in the box to be selected. When drawing from left to right, only elements fully contained in the box are selected. This will improve your productivity by minimizing the steps it takes.
Easily adjust the Family Parameter order to company standards.
By default, new family parameters are now added in ascending alphabetic order to the parameter list, within the group that you selected when creating the parameter. Use the Sorting Order buttons (Ascending and Descending) to sort the parameters alphabetically for the current family. To further modify the order, select a parameter and use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to change the order of the parameters within a group. This parameter order is maintained in the Properties palette (instance parameters) and Type Properties dialog (type parameters) for the family when it is loaded into a project.
Calculate pressure drop for duct and pipe using either Haaland or Colebrook equations in Mechanical Settings.
Specify either the Haaland or Colebrook equations in Mechanical Settings when calculating the pressure drop for duct and pipe. This helps improve the accuracy of certain mechanical calculations, with regionally applicable variations on Revit MEP’s native formula.
New Manage Assembly Code Setting dialog allows user to change UniformatClassifications.txt location.
The new Manage dialog allows you to modified the UniformatClassifications.txt location. There is a new warning indicator if there is an issue reading the Assembly Code file with an unsuccessful reload notification. The last loaded version of the Assembly code file is loaded into the document when open even if not found.
Parameter to control the visibility of Hidden Lines in your views.
Structural and MEP users now are able to turn off their hidden lines for an entire view. Now you can show or hide the hidden lines of your geometry independent of what discipline your view is set to.
In view properties, you can use the new Show Hidden Lines parameter to control the display of hidden lines in the current view. Define this parameter for view templates. Easily see the hidden lines of openings in Walls and Floors. Display all hidden lines automatically in 3D views for better documentation.
You can now delete revisions and better sketch revision clouds shapes.
Deleting a revision removes the revision and all of the revision's associated clouds and tags from the model. Use standard draw tools, such as a line or rectangle, to sketch the revision cloud shape. Pressing the Spacebar, you can flip the arc direction in the cloud shape. Specify the minimum arc length for revisions clouds in a project on the Sheet Issues/Revisions dialog.
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.
When you move or adjust the tag, the portion of the leader from the element to the elbow is flexible, while the portion from the elbow to the tag remains fixed.
Additionally the instance property Elevation at Top has been added to isolated foundations, wall foundations, and foundation slabs. Elevation at Top specifies the elevation of the highest point or plane of the foundation. You can use this information in tags when documenting a project.
Schedule Enhancements with Parameters, Filter & Grand Totals
Base and top constraint wall parameters are now available for schedule (Base Constraint, Base Offset, Top Constraint, Top Offset & Unconnected Height)
Grand Totals can now be customized using the ‘Custom Grand Total Title’ field and the Schedule Properties ‘Filter’ options have been expanded from 4 to 8 rows.
Include images in schedules to convey graphical information for elements.
Image Instance and Type properties have been added to many elements to allow you to associate an image with an element instance or type. These images can then be included in schedules and will display when the schedule is placed on a sheet.
Keynoting revision dialog has a single path with absolute / relative / library locations.
Simplification of dialog to a single path with absolute, relative or library locations. There is a new warning indicator if there is an issue reading the keynote file with an unsuccessful reload notification. The last loaded version of the Keynote file is loaded into the document to add keynote tags when open even if not found.
When you duplicate a view "Copy 1" is now added to the name.
Achieve a hand drawn, informal sketch look, by just pushing a button.
Presentation Sketchy Lines graphics gives you two parameters for adjusting the look of the sketchy lines, Jitter and Extension. The tool is available in all views and you can work while Sketchy Lines are turned on.
