Revit® software for BIM (Building Information Modeling) includes features for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering, and construction.
What's new in Revit 2018
- Coordination models: Use a Navisworks file as a lightweight context to work with others on your project.
- Schedule groups and Revit links: To better understand and quantify your project, create schedules of links and groups in the model.
- Global Parameters: Embed design intent with project-wide parameters that now work with radial and diameter dimensions and equality constraints.
- Multi-story stairs: Quickly create and modify multi-story buildings by connecting stairs to the levels in your project.
- Railings: You now have more control when creating railings. Includes hosting railings on topography, automatic adjustment to stairs, and post placement.
- MEP Fabrication modeling: Revit lets you model sloped pipe, part by part, and use multipoint routing for fabrication elements.
- MEP design and analysis: Manipulate the circuit pathways, define your own space types, and include outdoor air requirements.
- Mechanical simulation: Flow and pressure-drop data is now connected to the pump, and to the computation processes in the background.
- Rebar for complex geometry: Place rebar in free-form concrete objects. Reinforce imported concrete elements with improved varying rebar distribution.
- Rebar graphical constraints in 3D: Complete model definitions faster by editing rebar logic in 3D views with in-canvas graphical manipulation.
- Additional steel connections: More than 100 new connections. Now you can create connections for custom, user-defined families.
- Collaboration for Revit: Cloud worksharing service now installs with Revit. New sync with central window displays progress of the operation.
