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.
There are two options for creating a down spout.
- One option is a wall Sweep and it will place a very simple straight down spout.
- The second option uses an in-place family sweep where you define the path that you would like a profile to follow.
