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.
If you’re a consistent user of Autodesk Inventor you’ve probably at least heard of iLogic. Maybe you think of it as “that programming thing that I don’t have time to get into and probably don’t need”. Maybe you’ve dabbled in it, or copied some rules from the Autodesk Inventor Customization Forum to save a few clicks or solve a problem. Maybe you’ve even created some complex rules to drive configurable parts and assemblies. Regardless, it’s important to have a good understanding of the tool – what it is, what it isn’t, and where it fits in the overall scheme of Inventor’s Design Automation toolset.
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.
