New features connecting data, cloud, and customer.
Since the release of Revit 2019, Autodesk developers have put a lot of focus on suggestions from the Revit Ideas page. This is a platform where users can post ideas and features that they wish to see in Revit. Subsequently, with enough votes, it might be added to the Revit Roadmap
Here is a broad overview of the new features in Revit 2019.2.
With BIM 360 Design starting to replace file-based Workshared models, users have expressed the need to store non-Workshared models in the cloud. Now, you have the ability to save non-Workshared models in BIM 360 cloud platform and open it directly from the cloud in Revit, without the need to download. This is available to Revit and Revit LT subscribers.
In addition to this, you can now publish your workshared and non-workshared models directly from Revit Home (release in Revit 2019.1).
With Revit 2019.2, Project Admins can now update projects stored as cloud models to a later version of Revit, within BIM 360. However, this currently supports only the upgrade of models from Revit 2018.3 to Revit 2019 data format. For the moment, this is only available as a technical preview.
Site Collaboration Workflow
In Revit 2019.1, released Site collaboration which allows you to link Civil 3D terrain to Revit topography through BIM 360 Docs and Autodesk Desktop connector. Revit 2019.2 now includes the ability to place building pads and sub-regions on complex surfaces. BIM 360 supports the transfer of site information and project location data between project teams.
- You can now use familiar keyboard and mouse shortcuts to zoom in and out of a schedule view. As a result, there is better readability of especially small and complex characters like kanji.
- In Revit 2019.2, the “too small on screen” message has been removed, resulting in more accurate placement of elements.
- Revit 2019.2 will automatically use the highest resolution textures when rendering.
- Custom Fabric sheets (CFS) can be created with any collection of reinforcement, speeding up precast concrete modeling, automating design to fabrication.
- Structural Precast Extension for Revit Update 1 brings new features for people working on precast concrete projects.
- A set of new precast hollow-core slab families with an additional 13 types have been added.
CPS Revit Tools
