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. Show or hide the hidden lines of your geometry independent of what discipline your view is set to.
In view properties, use the new Show Hidden Lines parameter to control the display of hidden lines in the current view. You can also 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. You can 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. You can also 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.
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. 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.
Rebar and fabric reinforcement now have number sequencing that matches with existing reinforcement.
Numbering allows identical reinforcement elements to be matched for schedules and tags. In assigned partitions, the rebar and fabric sheet numbers match those of the same type, size, material, and shape. The number for a rebar or fabric sheet instance may be viewed in the Properties palette under Identity Data.
Modeling tools help you derive better construction insight from design models.
Split and manipulate objects, such as wall layers and concrete pours, to more accurately represent construction methods. Prepare shop drawings for fabrication with features that give you greater flexibility in documenting assemblies of model elements.
Create details from views of a 3D model with additional annotations or from scratch with Revit for structural engineering 2D drafting tools.
Import details from conventional CAD files. To help save time, import entire sheets of typical details in DWG™ format from previous projects. Dedicated drafting tools are available for structural modeling of steel and reinforced concrete details, such as:
