Every year, we look forward to the new software releases to see what new features and enhancements have been made to help streamline the BIM workflow in Revit. Let's take a look at 3 of these new features.
With the new multistory stair feature you can now create stair towers by attaching stairs to the levels in a section or elevation view of the project. When level heights change, stairs automatically adjust to match. Stairs will be grouped by level height with changes propagating automatically to all other stairs within the same height group.
Railings can be added to an entire multistory stair tower with a single click and will be grouped with their host stairs per level heights. Edits made to the sketch of one instance in the height group will propagate to the other instances in that height group.
Sketching new railings allow hosted railings to automatically recognize the slope of the host stair. Railings can also be hosted to elements other than stairs such as roofs, floors, walls and topo surface.
Users can now link Navisworks NWD and NWC models into your Revit projects for coordination purposes. It also allows for any file format that is supported by Navisworks to be included within the coordination model link. NWD and NWC models appear in all views including 3D views, floor plans, sections, and elevations.
These are just a few of the enhancements in the 2018 release. Register for the What's New in Revit 2018 Webinar on May 31st at 10am CST to explore these new features and more!
