Today Autodesk announced details of the 2012 AEC portfolio and once again this is my yearly roundup / review of the Autodesk Revit Architecture product. Similar to last year, the alpha for this release started particular early, so those involved in this feedback process got a good insight into what was being proposed. In fact when I visited Autodesk last year I go an early preview of some of the work that was taking place. I was fortunate enough to sit in on one of the development meetings where the concept scoping document was being discussed on a particular feature in this release. This was extremely enlightening; my overall opinion was that it was very similar to how the AEC industry works. In our case, we are the clients, we decide what we want and propose this to the researchers (the architect), the researchers then work with the developers (the contractor) to see how best to actually build the design. It is the architect as well as the contractor’s responsibilities to work within the budget constraints and to deliver the product on time. Fair enough, this is a simplistic view on the situation and it is probably not as black and white as what I have described, as there are many factors that could and will disrupt the development process. So back to the Revit Architecture 2012; I will just be covering the Architectural and major platform enhancements and features; I am sure others will do a better technical review of Structure and MEP improvements than I will do. So the key highlights include:Revit Server Citrix Ready Release Autodesk Vault Collaboration AEC Linking Improvements Work Sharing Improved DWG export fidelity Visualisation Enhancements

RS also provides support of all the new working sharing enhancements in this release. More detailed historic information is available from the Revit Server administration tools and there is now support for editing requests and notifications. my blog article back in October provides an overview of RS if you need to know more. The ability to Tag Rooms alone is worth its weight in gold as this limitation causes projects teams major headaches with the need to setup linked views etc to accommodate this previous limitation. without having to use Revit itself. RS has been further enhanced in 2012 and provides new platform server support for VMWare and Windows 2008 server release 2. The 2011 release saw a number of key improvements within this area. The original concept of one super model which can do everything has migrated to a more holistic and realistic approach of linking models.

We are often the executive architect and we produce the designs in Revit up to DD or stage D (RIBA).Monday. but they do improve the interaction experience and it genuinely improves the fit and finish of the product. Units can also be customized to a far more granular level of detail. Revit 2012 is now able to export style based dimensions.PAT file. All this should help to improve the clarity of DWG exports from Revit. I do hope it will meet most users’ needs. but will never provide the same quality you would get if it was drawn in AutoCAD in the first place. The temporary Dimensions graphics have been tweaked and these are now blue rather than black.

If you right mouse click over the type selector in the Properties Palette you can add it to the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) as well as the Ribbon. but when you do an appropriate 3dspace mouse icon will appear on the Navigation Bar. When Autodesk switched to the Ribbon. Revit 2011 stole us of this feature and the Type Selector migrated its way to the Properties Palette. unlock the view. But I am glade to say the Type Selector in the Ribbon is back. one rather nice feature in 2010 was the ability to have Type Selector positioned in the Ribbon. Whilst I am on the subject of 3d. Just go to Schedule / Quantities or Legends in the Project Browser. The guys over at Lego have been doing this for years!!! So Revit 2012 now includes a new 3d view lock feature which allows you to lock to an orientation of a 3d and then tag elements within the view. final Revit 2012 sees 3dconnexion device support.com/…/autodesk-revit-archit… 7/19 .

Core Modelling You will discover various number improvements that were implemented in Revit 2011’s massing tools have migrated their way into 2012’s project environment. when changing view properties of a view. you will only be able to use AC’s in Revit Architecture. As with every release of Revit. The creation of surface sub-regions on non-planar surfaces in the Conceptual Environment. no Revit Structure or Revit MEP support for the time being. An essential feature when apply materials to masses for energy analysis exercises. Autodesk strive to improve the product performance. The solid-solid cut tool can now be used on family instances. Also Multi-threading has also been extended to the calculation of silhouette edge graphics as well as graphical representation of model elements in open views. a number of improvements to Dimension Leaders and a new Round Function for Formulas. This allows you to draw on the surface of non-planar surface and apply different materials to the sub-region using the Paint tool. Although it should be not that there are some restrictions on the use of AC’s. has been enhanced further. The workplane Viewer is now available in the project environment and you can now use Adaptive Components in the project environment. customizable equality text. …blogspot.com/…/autodesk-revit-archit… 8/19 .

It is accessible via the Split Face tool in the Geometry panel.
families which just contain voids only and don’t actually cut anything in the family itself can be used to cut walls. Revit 2012 introduces the ability to Create Parts and Divide the model. to start to move into this arena and to address the complexities and finesse of Construction Modelling. A number of contractors have made a serious investment in Revit and are utilising the tool in their workflow. you will know exactly what I mean. floors. Columns. This starts to resolve a number of use cases such as holes in beams or the ability to automatically cut an opening in a worktop when placing a sink. Also.5/5/2011 Revit: Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 A long standing request from the Revit community is to allow families to cut other families. ceilings as well as the family types mentioned previously. Autodesk is starting to ensure that Revit can be utilised in other parts of the AEC workflow. Structural Foundations or Generic model families within the Project. …blogspot. Therefore. roofs. So 2012 now allows face-based void families to be hosted on and cut Structural Framing. Revit and Construction As the Revit platform starts to take its grip on the AEC industry as the BIM technology of choice. These features are purely focused at construction engineer who needs to split the model into smaller component parts.com/…/autodesk-revit-archit… 9/19 . If anybody has seen what Tocci Construction are doing with Revit.
Once you have created the assembly and named it. Once Parts are made.5/5/2011 Revit: Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 Parts are produced by breaking down the compound components which make up walls. Parts do have their own properties. By enabling the grip handle functionality available from the properties palette you can pull the various layers around. these feature are only available in Revit Architecture and Structure. roofs. Assembly and Assembly views have been introduced to resolve certain pre-cast construction workflows. the wall will break down into its individual component layers. To generate an assembly. This allows you to create shop drawings of components which are independent of the main model. you select the elements you want to group as part of your assembly. and then choose the Create Assembly Command. When you select a wall for instance and choose to create parts. A word of warning though. so they can be scheduled and can be modified independently. You can then generate views from the assembly by clicking on the create views commands. you can then use the Divide Parts Command to divide the compound Part further by using sketch lines on the active workplace. ceilings and floors.com/…/autodesk-revit-archit… 10/19 . However. The individual parts do retain the geometric relationship with its original element. it will appear under assemblies in the project browser. when you break your model into parts it will add weight to …blogspot. Both these features have massive potential. it will start to allow for more granular detailing.
The other minor improvement is the control of parameter values for points hosted on line or curves. Previous to 2012. The Remove paint tool allows you to remove materials you have already applied. angle. so when selected it will automatically open the materials dialog box to allow you to preview the material before applying to an element. This got even more confusion on circles as the value was expressed in radians. I joked last year when I saw this feature that I could see some going mad and breaking everything and anything without understanding the consequences! Massing Tweaks There have been a couple of useful tweaks to tools in the Conceptual Massing Environment. …blogspot. The Paint tool has undergone a change. A new parameter called “Family Type:Divide Surface” allows you to drive the display and type of a pattern or a component. the parameter was normalized between a value of 0 to 1.com/…/autodesk-revit-archit… 11/19 . normalized segment length. whilst you could host a point on a line. Now you can still express the normalised segmented length between 0 and 1. chord length. but you also have additional parameters for segmented length.5/5/2011 Revit: Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 your model as the original element is still retained. non-normalized curve parameter and normalized curve parameter. More Material Changes There have been some fundamentals changes to how material work. You can also schedule materials that have been applied by the Paint tool. You can now have Formula Driven Components. What this means is that you can use conditional formula parameters and apply this to a divided surface. Whilst much of this work is on-going and will not be immediately obvious to the user this is the first steps of a large project to focus on delivering models with Physical Materials.
but when talking with many of our clients here in London. no more keyboard combinations of selecting and deleting one at a time! Point Cloud Support One of the most exciting features in Revit 2012 is support for Point Cloud data. one of the outcomes of the recent global downturn is that clients are now looking to refurbish their existing building stock rather than finding a green field sight and plonking down a new building. Therefore. how does the notation of BIM interface with the world of refit and refurbishment? How do you capture what already exists and utilize this to develop the BIM? The concept of laser scanning it nothing new.com/…/autodesk-revit-archit… 12/19 . But capturing the data is one thing.5/5/2011 Revit: Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 The management and control of material has been upgraded. the use of the technology has certain accelerated in recent years. Finally. The management of property sets are managed through an overhauled Material Properties Library Dialogue. this is how they are thinking. Times have changed. This work has accumulated into the ability to have libraries that can be present in a project or an independent file which can be shared between users as well as other Autodesk applications such as 3dsmax. you can now purge unused materials from a project. the icing on the cake. These are collection of properties that are used to define the aspect of the material. Refurbishment has a direct correlation with the sustainability agenda. with more and more surveying firms offering laser scanning services. With this change we can again create customized libraries for project or for your office. utilizing data to develop a Revit model has. something which was not possible when Autodesk changed from Accurender to MentalRAY. up until now. …blogspot. what could be more Green than taking an existing building and refurbishing to meet current regulations and requirements? Maybe that is a rather unsophisticated view on the situation. been extremely challenging. for instance you can now create property sets for materials.

I do foresee many firms who do refurbishment making good use of this powerful feature. IFC Tweaks The IFC export engine has been tweaked and is now “layered” on the Revit API. what next? Geometry can be used to snap to planar surfaces that are dynamically detected in the point cloud. deleted and mirrored. Autodesk is the biggest player in the AEC software market. Revit will only detect planes that are perpendicular to the current workplane. a point cloud file behaves like any other model element. It will appear in views and can be selected.

Whilst many may never utilise this functionality. will open up opportunities for more enhanced geometry creation tools to be developed by third parties developers. . .fls. Once linked into a project. There are also various API enhancements which I am sure. The snap tool feature streamlines the model authoring process from the cloud data. All the normal Revit rules apply so. you would certainly think it was in there interest to drive the IFC discussion and put some real effort in. You have the capability to link multiply point cloud files and you can obviously control the display of the cloud file via Visibility / Graphics. but without the necessary appetite from AEC firms to sit down and work together to get it completely working . . More and more countries are demanding BIM. rotated. This has allegedly addressed a number of export bugs.
. Some will be thinking. Thank you for your excellent write up of the new feature they look great. Without this. improved typography and site.. if Revit is to be the BIM authoring platform of choice. Keep up the good work. However. Revit 2012 is overall a positive release. the content and views expressed in this article are purely my own. stairs etc…. improving model quality and construction assembly by providing flexible. You rock David. Nevertheless. there will always be an excuse by some diehards that this “BIM thing” is just not worth doing. I have a pragmatic view on much of this now as I have come to realize that there is no utopia and Rome really wasn’t built in a day.. Summary and Final Thoughts….. so I do hope I can report back in the near future on the efforts. Therefore. there is still plenty in this feature rich release to make most users content. some of these long standing requests really do need to be addressed over the next 1 to 2 releases... I will cover these features in a future article. It’s what makes me wake up of a morning and travel to work :-) Posted by David Light Labels: Releases.. David.
