Exciting news today!  The Revit 2018.1 update, the very latest version, is now available for download.

As I explained in this post on What’s Next for Revit, we’ve increased the frequency of Revit product releases essentially catching up our release schedule to better match the agile development methodology we adopted a while ago. Since we released Revit 2018 to the world in April 2017, additional features and updates have become ready for release, and we are making those features available now with Revit 2018.1, accessible in your Autodesk Account for Subscribers to Revit, the AEC Collection, and suites containing Revit.

Many of these updates are inspired by your feedback and suggestions, and we actively solicit customer input.  You can share your ideas for improving Revit with us and the user community on the Revit Ideas page.

So what’s new in Revit 2018.1?

Delivering on our long-term goals, this release includes features and functionality that strengthen Revit– building a solid foundation for product reliability and efficiency– and that modernize, creating a modern and effortless experience. There’s also functionality that helps you efficiently create information that captures design intent and connect workflows for team-based project delivery.

Core features  

These new features will benefit everyone, regardless of your discipline.

Dynamo Player improvements: The Dynamo Player which is the powerful scripting tool that installs with Revit, is now even more valuable as a way to automate tasks. You can now adapt Dynamo scripts to better-fit your needs by requesting user input before use. Providing user input directly in the Dynamo Player interface lets customers make project-specific adjustments to scripts without having to know how to use Dynamo.  In addition to a UI refresh that makes it easier to use, the Dynamo player in the Revit 2018.1 update comes with additional scripts.

You’ll be happy to see the new schedule management in project browser feature — we know you’ve been asking for this schedule browser.  This feature lets you apply project browser organization to schedules.  Reducing visual clutter makes it easier to find schedules, especially in large projects.

For Architects, Revit 2018.1 continues to deliver features that help you work more efficiently to capture design intent.

For Structure, the Revit 2018.1 update adds functionality that continues to improve the workflow between steel engineers and detailers and concrete engineers and detailers working together in a BIM environment.
