Pinned elements are prevented from being deleted unless you specify. Elements must be unpinned before they can be deleted.
Delete elements by unpinning them and deleting, or deleting through the expanded warning dialog. Revit will now warn you that the element is pinned and instruct you to unpin the element before using Delete. Delete objects in a non-graphical context, such as deleted from Schedule.
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.
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.
New capabilities and features enable precise definition and placement of structural framing elements in space.
Align the end of a joined beam to another beam, structural column, or structural wall. Reset beam ends that have been previously aligned.
Shape handles are now available to click and drag the end extensions or cutback of beams and braces in the drawing area. Use shape handles to directly manipulate framing element geometry and snap ends to other geometry or reference lines.
Quickly offset the physical geometry of framing elements using the Offset y and Offset z justification tools. Fine adjustments are now possible working directly in the drawing area without manually calculating and entering parameter values in the Properties palette.
Display the location lines of beams and braces in any view as a reference while modeling.
Structural Framing elements can be identified by their section type, containing consistent and unambiguous definition of sectional properties.
You can assign parameters representing expected characteristics to structural framing and structural column families. This can present unreliable information to external analysis and code checking applications. Improve data integrity within BIM workflows and get consistent parameters by applying a section shape category to structural framing families.
Document multiple rebar within a host, only showing a representative subset, allowing the creation of legible reinforcement documentation.
It gives you the ability to create better correct detail shop drawings of reinforcement. The bar presentation allows the reinforcement of structural elements to be displayed in a simple, more readable way. Defining different bar presentation for a rebar set in each separate view gives more flexibility in creating reinforcement drawings.
Parametric components, also known as families, are the basis for all building components designed in Revit.
They offer an open, graphical system for design and form-making as well as an opportunity to express design intent at increasingly detailed levels. Use parametric components for the most elaborate assemblies, such as cabinetry and equipment, as well as for the most elementary building parts, such as walls and columns. No programming language or coding is required.
In Revit, all model information is stored in one place. Any information that gets changed is effectively changed throughout the Revit model.
Revit software for structural engineering includes building materials such as steel, cast-in-place concrete, pre-cast concrete, masonry, and wood.
Since the buildings you design are constructed of multiple building materials, Revit building software enables you to model your structure using the materials you need.
More quickly and easily define and visualize concrete reinforcement.
Methods for managing the definition of reinforcement as well as controlling its placement include:
Minimize the need for saving and maintaining working views. This feature allows you to change view properties without affecting the saved view state.
