With the newly released version of our favorite Building Design software, Autodesk Revit 2019, I thought it would be a great time to share my top 5 favorite new additions to the software. There are many new features in Revit 2019, but so far my favorites are Tabbed Views, Levels in 3D, Uncropped Perspective Views, ability to Dimension Curved Objects in Section, and Double Filled Regions. All of these features are useful for any Revit user, and if you were looking for an excuse to upgrade sooner rather than later Tabbed Views alone might be the only reason you need to start using it today.
Navisworks is just for clash detection, right? Nope, you can actually do some really cool stuff with Navisworks. One of the great features is the Animator Tool. This video shows you how to take your Revit design model and create a virtual Flythrough utilizing the Navisworks Animator. We will start by doing some minimal prep work in Revit by setting up views, then moving straight to Navisworks Simulate or Navisworks Manage where we will tell the software when to show each view in our animation. Navisworks will stitch the views together and create an very nice and smooth Orbit or Flythrough animation.
That didn’t take long! It seems like we just rolled out Revit® 2018 and learned all of the new improvements that came with it, and now here we are just a few months later with a whole new set of great functionality added to our favorite BIM application. Revit 2018.1 features some exciting enhancements including the ability to provide user input within the Dynamo Player interface, additional library content, enhanced Rebar for Structural Engineers, and added functionality for MEP Fabrication Parts.
