Use the Site Designer Extension for Revit to shape the terrain for building sites within the Revit environment and help convey building site planning concepts to engineers. Site Designer runs inside Revit software and uses native families, components, and toposurfaces, so site designs become part of the overall model. Use it to model alternatives for mass grading, building pads, streets, sidewalks, parking lots, and retaining walls, all within Revit.
With new BIM Coordination Model features in AutoCAD 2017, you can now open Navisworks models within design products, pushing project coordination upstream. Designers can now model in context using the integrated Navisworks model as an underlay to assist with clash avoidance.
Optimize building performance with access to performance data and advanced analysis engines with the Insight 360 central interface. With robust bi-directional integration with Revit 2017, Insight 360 integrates existing workflows such as Revit Energy Analysis and Lighting Analysis for Revit, which now includes expanded customization options. Visualize solar radiation on mass or building element surfaces with new solar analysis workflows in addition to better understanding PV energy production.
Insight 360 also harnesses the power of EnergyPlus to deliver dynamic thermal heating and cooling loads in Revit 2017.
Quickly reveal a range of potential design outcomes through the Energy Cost Range factors and help identify key energy performance drivers. With millions of potential design scenarios at your fingertips, visualizing the impact of orientation, envelope, WWR, lighting equipment, schedules, HVAC, and even PV is now even easier. Save and compare your design scenarios to help track performance spanning the building lifecycle in a more consistent and cohesive manner. Share your insights with project stakeholders and measure performance against Architecture 2030 and ASHRAE 90.1 benchmarks.
