Autodesk Revit 2022.1 released in September and with it we have added new features to the Revit Public Roadmap.

A reminder that we took questions on the Revit Public Roadmap at Autodesk University 2021, in three different “Ask Me Anything” sessions covering Architecture, MEP, and Structures. Recordings are available on demand here:

Fall 2021 Update:

As is true of every update, the usual roadmap ground rules apply. This roadmap may make statements regarding future events and development efforts for our products and services. These statements reflect our current expectations based on what we know today. Our plans are not intended to be a promise or guarantee of future delivery of products, services or features and purchasing decisions should not be made based upon these statements. We do not assume any responsibility to update this roadmap to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the publish date of this roadmap.
