New in Revit Architecture 2011

New in Revit Architecture 2011

The following features are new or enhanced for Revit Architecture.

For additional detail and a more interactive listing of New Features for Revit Architecture, go to the following:

User Interface Enhancements
  • Modeless Properties Palette
  • Repeat last command / Repeat Commands recently used
  • Quick Access Toolbar (QAT):
    • Single QAT per application
    • Increased number of default commands in the QAT
    • Customization options via dialog box: move command up/down, add separator, remove command
  • Improved access to Worksets and Design Options on status bar
  • Ribbon Enhancements:
    • Redesigned Modify tab:
      • Consistent modify tools - panels and buttons are always in the same order on the left side of the Modify tab. Buttons enable/ disable as necessary.
      • Modify tab name updates to reflect the active contextual tab appended.
      • Contextual tab content is appended to the right side of the Modify tab when active.
      • Modify and contextual contents are separated by a gray visual bar.
    • Persistent access to core modify tools (Object-Action commands):
      • Move
      • Copy
      • Rotate
      • Mirror - Pick Axis
      • Mirror - Draw Axis
      • Delete
    • Type Selector Enhancements

      Type Selector is combined with the Properties Palette. Open at all times; can be opened/closed using the Properties Palette button available in the Properties ribbon panel.

    • Group Edit Mode access

      Panel is removed from the ribbon and will float in drawing area when invoked. Default is upper left corner of drawing area and can be moved.

    • Model In-Place

      Project ribbon replaced with the family ribbon when an in-place model is started or edited. When you finish editing in-place, the ribbon will revert to the project ribbon.

  • Improved icons based on user feedback
Large Team Workflow: Linked Models
  • Enhancements to the Visibility Control of Worksets in workshared files:
    • Visibility by Default for Worksets
    • Ability to open/close Worksets for linked models
    • Ability to control visibility of linked models according to host model
    • Ability to apply View Filters to linked models from host model
  • Ability to tag elements in linked files, with the exception of rooms, spaces, and areas
  • Ability to automatically generate a ceiling grid from walls in a linked model
  • Ability to apply View Filters to linked files
  • Realistic materials available in editable views
  • Hardware acceleration (DX9) on by default
  • Levels of Details (adaptive to zoom)
  • Ambient occlusion
  • Display performance improvements (over 30%)
  • Significant performance improvement in display of mechanical and electrical drawings (up to 200%)
  • Protein 2.0 appearances, in single project library
  • Increased interoperability with 3ds Max through:
    • Export of FBX files to Max with Protein 2 appearances
    • Import of DWG files and ADSK files with Protein 2 appearances
    Note3ds Max/Design 2011 is required for materials to transfer.
  • Support for new realistic display style through Protein 2 materials
  • New material classes available in Protein 2, including procedural appearances
Inventor Interoperability
  • Support for oval duct, cable tray, and conduit connectors
  • Support of new electrical properties (such as Motor)
  • Improved performance when importing ADSK files
  • Improved AEC Exchange functionality
  • Support of Protein materials
Performance Improvements
  • Graphics
  • MultiCore Operations
  • Sync with Central
  • Model Open
  • User interface reaction time
  • Linked Models
DWG Export
  • Increased visual fidelity when exporting Revit files to DWG
  • Export option for True Color
  • Export option for Text treatment
Family Editor Enhancements
  • Interactive exploration of parameter values in Revit families
  • Ability to lock labeled dimensions
  • Reporting Parameters
Parameter Enhancements
  • Default parameter type (length vs. text)
  • Parameters groups automatically set
Temporary Dimension Enhancements
  • Remembering witness lines
  • Family Editor: right-click permanent dimensions to select labels
  • Ability to control temporary dimension font size and background (transparent or opaque)
3D Alignment Enhancements
  • Align tool now works on an element's node, vertex, edge, surface, form, or level
Expanded Region of High Geometric Accuracy
  • Previous versions of Revit were unable to maintain the expected level of geometric accuracy at locations farther than 1 mile from the project origin. Revit will now maintain a high level of geometric accuracy for elements placed within 20 miles of the project origin.
Selection Enhancements
  • Select All Instances in the current view or in the entire project
Text Notes Enhancements
  • Additional leader attachment points: Top Left (TL), Middle Left (ML), Bottom Left (BL), Top Right (TR), Middle Right (MR), and Bottom Right (BR).

  • Ability to show box around text
  • Ability to create bullets and numbering
Sheet Enhancements
  • Create new sheet list rows to create placeholder sheets
  • Convert placeholder sheets to project sheets
  • Grid guide for sheets, enabling consistent sheet creation
Floor Enhancements
  • Ability to set span direction for metal deck floors
  • Sun Path
