What’s new in Revit 2021

New and enhanced Revit® design software features support consistent, coordinated, and complete modeling for multidiscipline design that extends to detailing and construction.

  • Generative Design

    Quickly produce design alternatives based on goals and constraints that you define. Available exclusively to AEC Collection subscribers. (video: 2.45 min.)

  • Enhanced

    Real-time realistic views

    Work directly in real time with better, easier, and faster realistic views. (video: 1:09 min.)

  • Electrical circuit naming

    Electrical workflows in Revit 2021 are more adaptable to global requirements with flexible circuit naming schemes. (video: 1:28 min.)

  • Customized workspace

    Easily tailor your workspace to your work discipline and job role.

  • Slanted walls

    Intuitively create and edit slanted walls, and instantly handle slanted doors, windows, and other wall-hosted geometry.

  • PDF and image linking

    Link PDFs or image files into Revit from local or cloud storage.

  • Cloud model hosting in Europe

    Host Revit cloud workshared and non-workshared models on European data centers.

  • Row striping for schedules

    Read schedules more easily with row striping on sheet views.

  • Infrastructure discipline and bridge categories

    Revit 2021 supports bridge and civil structures workflows with InfraWorks, including extended bridge categories for modeling and documentation.

  • Dynamo 2.5 integration

    Dynamo Revit 2.5 comes out of the box with Revit 2021.

  • Enhanced | Rebar modeling

    A series of improvements for shapes, coupler connections, and end treatments for working with rebar.

  • Integrated precast automation

    Structural precast extension is now native to Revit with precast tools available on install.

  • Integrated steel connections nodes

    Dynamo nodes for placing steel connections now come out of the box with Revit.

  • Enhanced | Tools for steel modeling

    Enhancements to the create, edit, view, and snap command behaviors with steel stiffeners and plates.

  • Integrated structural analysis results

    Structural analysis results storage and exploration is now native to Revit on install.

  • Enhanced | Electrical design

    New support for single phase (line to neutral) panelboards, and improvements to switchboard circuits.

  • Enhanced | MEP worksharing

    Improved worksharing provides better collaboration among stakeholders and a more consistent experience.

  • P&ID Modeler on BIM 360 Docs

    P&ID Modeler for Revit now connects to BIM 360 Docs.

Revit 2020.2

  • Dynamo node filters steel connections by analysis results

    Perform structural design and analysis at scale. Load structural analysis results from Revit and set parameters for filtering, selecting, placing, and replacing steel connections in Dynamo. (video: 1:33 min.)

  • Better navigation with Fly mode

    Take off in Fly mode from the navigation bar and move around the model with ease, using a familiar set of keystrokes. (video: 1:22 min.)

  • Expose internal point of origin

    Better model coordination between disciplines with a new feature for toggling display of model origin. (video: 30 sec.)

Revit 2020.1

  • MEP systems analysis

    With newly integrated workflows, mechanical engineers can use the same Revit model for HVAC system documentation, design and analysis. (video: 1:39 min.)

  • BIM 360 Design Sync Activity Indicator

    View the sync status for a cloud workshared model, including the username of the person synchronizing with the central model. (video: 43 sec.)

  • Rebar-to-rebar constraint types

    Now, shape-driven rebar sets can be constrained together at a specified distance, regardless of the bar shape or style. (video: 2:47 min.)

Revit 2020

  • PDF underlay support

    Insert a PDF into Revit from any source and snap to the PDF to model new elements based on the 2D data. (video: 2:03 min.)

  • Path of travel

    Understand how people will move in a building or navigate a space to analyze design performance. (video: 1:48 min.)

  • Elliptical walls

    Create more advanced wall geometry with the ability to draw elliptical walls and curtain walls. (video: 43 sec.)

  • Enhanced multi-rebar annotation

    Use multi-rebar annotations for planar parallel freeform rebar sets and concrete faces.

  • Create parts from imported geometry

    Imported geometry (direct shapes) can now be split into parts. Make cuts and adjustments to parts using Revit opening and cut tools.

  • Copy and paste legends across sheets

    Enhanced copy-and-paste functionality for legends lets you efficiently copy legends for use in other locations.

  • Tag, schedule, and view filter for elevation

    Schedule elevation of elements and use those values in view filters, streamlining the ability to interact with elements in the properties palette.

  • Track and edit scope box parameter in view list

    Include the scope box parameter in a view list, coordinate crop regions across multiple views without opening each view.

  • Revit extension for fabrication exports

    Generate CSV output to be used in spreadsheets or other data environments directly from Revit.

  • Improved rebar copy and move logic

    Get more predictable behavior when copying and moving shape-driven rebar, for higher accuracy and design intent fidelity.

  • Electrical panel feed through lugs connection

    Model the connection of panels through feed-through lugs, more accurately documenting the system design.

  • Electrical homerun wiring improvements

    With more control over arrowheads and tick marks, create electrical documentation that is easier to understand and use.

  • Change service improvement

    Change service now allows multi-shape services to be preserved or replaced in a single operation.
