This copy of the software is a single-user, download license for installation on 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows.

What's New for 2015

Enhanced Structural Analytical Mode
The structural analytical model was improved in several different areas. Use Analytical Model Categories visibility settings to display Local Coordinate System (LCS) widgets along structural analytical elements in a view. The LCS for Columns is now consistent with the LCS for beams and braces. Hosted Loads and Boundary Conditions now can be oriented to the Host LCS. They also respect host LCS direction and rotate as the LCS is changed
IFC Linking
Use the new Link IFC tool to link an IFC file to the current project. If you later change the IFC file and reload the project, the project updates to reflect the changes. Linked geometry has much better fidelity and associated parameters come into the Revit environment with the correct values and units
Pinned Elements Enhancements
Elements must be unpinned before they can be deleted. Delete elements by unpinning them and deleting, or deleting through the expanded warning dialog. Revit will now warn you that the element is pinned and instruct you to unpin the element before using Delete. Delete objects in a non-graphical context, such as deleted from Schedule
Trim / Extend Multiple Elements
Trim / Extend has been updated to enable for box selection of multiple elements. When drawing a selection box from right to left, the elements do not have to be contained in the box to be selected. When drawing from left to right, only elements fully contained in the box are selected. This is designed to help improve your productivity by minimizing the steps it takes
Family Parameter Order Adjustment
By default, new family parameters are now added in ascending alphabetic order to the parameter list, within the group that you selected when creating the parameter. Use the Sorting Order buttons (Ascending and Descending) to sort the parameters alphabetically for the current family. To further modify the order, select a parameter and use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to change the order of the parameters within a group. This parameter order is maintained in the Properties palette (instance parameters) and Type Properties dialog (type parameters) for the family when it is loaded into a project
Tooltips for Family Parameters
Users can now customize Revit MEP tooltips to help describe and communicate parameters and their intended use, to help improve overall product learnability
Calculation Methods for Pressure Drop
Specify either the Haaland or Colebrook equations in Mechanical Settings when calculating the pressure drop for duct and pipe. This helps improve the accuracy of certain mechanical calculations, with regionally applicable variations on Revit MEP's native formula
Assembly Code Settings
The new Manage dialog allows you to modify the UniformatClassifications.txt location. There is a new warning indicator if an issue arises reading the Assembly Code file. In the event of failure, the last loaded version of the Assembly code file is loaded into the document when open even if not found
Accuracy of "As-Built" Model Definition
Shape handles are now available to click and drag the end extensions or cutback of beams and braces in the drawing area. Use shape handles to directly manipulate framing element geometry and snap ends to other geometry or reference lines. Quickly offset the physical geometry of framing elements using the Offset y and Offset z justification tools. Fine adjustments are now possible working directly in the drawing area without manually calculating and entering parameter values in the Properties palette. Display the location lines of beams and braces in any view as a reference while modeling.
Structural Section Properties
Structural Framing elements can be identified by their section type, containing consistent and unambiguous definition of sectional properties. You can assign parameters representing expected characteristics to structural framing and structural column families. This can present unreliable information to external analysis and code checking applications. Improve data integrity within BIM workflows and get consistent parameters by applying a section shape category to structural framing families
Reinforcement for Parts
Concrete parts created from surface elements (such as walls and floors) possess rebar cover and can host rebar, rebar sets, area reinforcement, path reinforcement, and fabric reinforcement
Presentation for Rebar Sets
Document multiple rebar within a host, only showing a representative subset, allowing the creation of legible reinforcement documentation. It gives you the ability to create better correct detail shop drawings of reinforcement. The bar presentation allows the reinforcement of structural elements to be displayed in a simple, more readable way. Defining different bar presentation for a rebar set in each separate view gives more flexibility in creating reinforcement drawings
Enhanced Hidden Lines
Now you can show or hide the hidden lines of your geometry independent of what discipline your view is set to. In view properties, you can use the new Show Hidden Lines parameter to control the display of hidden lines in the current view. Define this parameter for view templates. Easily see the hidden lines of openings in Walls and Floors. Display all hidden lines automatically in 3D views for better documentation
Revision Improvements
You can now delete revisions and better sketch revision clouds shapes. Deleting a revision removes the revision and all of the revision's associated clouds and tags from the model. Use standard draw tools, such as a line or rectangle, to sketch the revision cloud shape. Pressing the Spacebar, you can flip the arc direction in the cloud shape. Specify the minimum arc length for revisions clouds in a project on the Sheet Issues/Revisions dialog
Tag Improvements
When you move or adjust the tag, the portion of the leader from the element to the elbow is flexible, while the portion from the elbow to the tag remains fixed. Additionally the instance property Elevation at Top has been added to isolated foundations, wall foundations, and foundation slabs. Elevation at Top specifies the elevation of the highest point or plane of the foundation. You can use this information in tags when documenting a project
Enhanced Schedules / Material Takeoffs
Schedule Enhancements with Parameters, Filter and Grand Totals. Base and top constraint wall parameters are now available for schedule (Base Constraint, Base Offset, Top Constraint, Top Offset and Unconnected Height). Grand Totals can now be customized using the "Custom Grand Total Title" field and the Schedule Properties "Filter" options have been expanded from four to eight rows
Images in Schedules
Include images in schedules to convey graphical information for elements. Image Instance and Type properties have been added to many elements to allow you to associate an image with an element instance or type. These images can then be included in schedules and will display when the schedule is placed on a sheet
Keynoting Settings
Simplification of dialog to a single path with absolute, relative, or library locations. There is a new warning indicator if there is an issue reading the keynote file with an unsuccessful reload notification. The last loaded version of the Keynote file is loaded into the document to add keynote tags when open even if not found
View References
Improved functionality when changing the referenced view after a view reference has been created. Change the view reference in reference callouts, reference sections, and reference elevations after the reference has been created, as needed
Reinforcement Numbering
Rebar and fabric reinforcement now have number sequencing that matches with existing reinforcement. Numbering allows identical reinforcement elements to be matched for schedules and tags. In assigned partitions, the rebar and fabric sheet numbers match those of the same type, size, material, and shape. The number for a rebar or fabric sheet instance may be viewed in the Properties palette under Identity Data
Enhanced Multi Rebar Annotation
Multi Rebar Annotation, when applied to more than one rebar set, now includes enhancements such as grouping and sorting tags or segments. Multi Rebar Annotation also now updates to better reflect data changes to rebar sets. This includes Bar Presentation changes
Duplicate Views
When you duplicate a view, "Copy 1" is now added to the name. When you duplicate a dependent view, the default name for the copy is "Dependent 1". The copied view has the correct focus in the Project Browser (so you can rename the view) and the copy of the view is open in the drawing area
Tapped Duct and Pipe Tags
Now tag a numerical value along a tapped duct or pipe that varies along its length. With this enhancement, the text 'Multiple Values' is reported in the tag, and Revit displays the actual value based on the location of the tag or its leader
Sketchy Lines
Achieve a hand drawn, informal sketch look, by just pushing a button. Presentation Sketchy Lines graphics gives you two parameters for adjusting the look of the sketchy lines, Jitter and Extension. The tool is available in all views and you can work while Sketchy Lines are turned on

Analysis

Structural Analysis for Revit
Perform static analysis for various buildings from the cloud. More easily calculate different variants of the same model
Structural Analytical Model
Revit provides a physical model to use for documentation and an associated analytical model to use for structural analysis and design. An analytical model is a simplified 3D representation of the full engineering description of a structural physical model. The analytical model consists of those structural components, geometry, material properties, and loads, that together form an engineering system. The analytical model is created automatically while you create the physical model, and can be exported to analysis and design applications

Collaboration

Worksharing
Worksharing distributes the power of the parametric building modeling environment across the project team. Multiple users can share the same intelligent building information model and save their work to a central file
Revit Server
Revit Server helps project teams in different locations to more easily collaborate on shared Revit models across a wide-area network (WAN). This Revit feature helps you maintain an integrated collection of central Revit models on a single server that can be accessed from local servers. Built-in redundancy helps provide protection in case of WAN connectivity loss
Vault Integration
Vault Collaboration software is designed to work with Revit. More effectively streamline data management associated with architecture, engineering, and multidiscipline projects - from planning through design and construction
IFC Certification
Revit MEP 2015 has been certified by BuildingSMART International for Industry Foundation Class (IFC) version 2x3 Coordination View 2.0 export
Bidirectional Links, Multiple Analysis Packages
The structural analytical model in Revit software can be bi-directionally linked with Robot Structural Analysis Professional software. With bidirectional linking, your analysis results will automatically update your model. Parametric change technology coordinates those updates throughout your model views and construction drawings. Revit also links to third-party structural analysis and design programs, facilitating the exchange of structural analytical information. The types of information that can be shared include:
  • Release and boundary conditions
  • Loads and load combinations
  • Material and section properties
Interference Check
Use interference checking to scan your Revit model for collisions between elements

Design

Conceptual Design Tools
Revit software offers conceptual design tools that support your creative workflow. Sketch freely, create free-form models more easily, and manipulate forms interactively. Define forms and geometry as real building components for a smoother transition to design development and documentation. Revit automatically builds a parametric framework around your forms as you design, offering greater levels of control, accuracy, and flexibility
Autodesk Exchange
Autodesk Exchange enables you to access extended Revit functionality and an expanded content library. "Buy and install" directly from the web into the current Revit session. You can also access the large Revit content library through Autodesk Exchange
Parametric Components
Parametric components - also known as families - are the basis for all building components designed in Revit. They offer an open, graphical system for design and form-making as well as an opportunity to express design intent at increasingly detailed levels. Use parametric components for the most elaborate assemblies, such as cabinetry and equipment, as well as for the most elementary building parts, such as walls and columns. No programming language or coding is required
Bidirectional Associativity
In Revit, all model information is stored in one place. Any information that gets changed is effectively changed throughout the Revit model
Multiple Materials Modeling
Revit software for structural engineering includes building materials such as steel, cast-in-place concrete, pre-cast concrete, masonry, and wood. Since the buildings you design are constructed of multiple building materials, Revit building software enables you to model your structure using the materials you need
Structural Reinforcement
More quickly and easily define and visualize concrete reinforcement. Methods for managing the definition of reinforcement as well as controlling its placement include:
  • Multi-planer reinforcement support
  • Support for hosting reinforcement in generic model families
  • More precise display of self-intersecting reinforcement bars
  • Support for attaching stirrups beyond cover references
Point Cloud Tools
Point cloud tools connect laser scans directly into the BIM process, helping to accelerate renovation and retrofit projects. By visualizing point clouds directly within the Revit software environment, it's easier to author an as-built model with more confidence and accuracy
Temporary View Templates
Minimize the need for saving and maintaining working views. This feature allows you to change view properties without affecting the saved view state

Documentation

Construction Modeling
Modeling tools help you derive better construction insight from design models. Split and manipulate objects, such as wall layers and concrete pours, to more accurately represent construction methods. Prepare shop drawings for fabrication with features that give you greater flexibility in documenting assemblies of model elements
Material Takeoff
This tool helps calculate detailed material quantities and track material quantities in cost estimates. The parametric change engine helps support more accurate material takeoffs
DWG, DWF, DXF, and DGN Support
Revit imports, exports, and links your data with popular formats, including DWG, DXF, DGN, and IFC. This makes it easier to work with data from consultants, clients, or contractors
Structural Details
Create details from views of a 3D model with additional annotations or from scratch with Revit for structural engineering 2D drafting tools. Import details from conventional CAD files. To help save time, import entire sheets of typical details in DWG format from previous projects. Dedicated drafting tools are available for structural modeling of steel and reinforced concrete details, such as:
  • Welding symbols
  • Anchor bolts
  • Rebar
  • Concrete area reinforcement

Visualization

Displaced Views
Create exploded views of building designs to more clearly visualize building assemblies and view construction sequencing. Exploded models can be configured to your view preferences
Design Visualization
Capture design ideas in a near-photorealistic state thanks to the mental ray rendering engine
Rendering
Cloud-based rendering helps designers, architects, engineers, and contractors to reduce time and project costs. Produce compelling, near-photorealistic visualizations without tying up the desktop or requiring specialized rendering hardware
