Revit 2019: What’s New

Like a box of goodies delivered right to your PC. This year doesn't fail to impress, with some of our favourite pet hates being at the very least tempered...

This is my first pass at what’s new under the hood in Revit 2019, and I have to say I like what I see!

Over the coming weeks I will delve more deeply into these and other features you really need to know.

3d software with multiple view

Multimonitor support and tabbed views

Improve working space by organizing and arranging views using tabbed documents that can be docked, tiled, and viewed on multiple monitors.

Finally, you can stretch your Revit interface across both screens, with out having to constantly adjust each individual view, or annoy the daylights out of your BIM Manager… Great for the Rhino users!


filters for 3D design

Filters Just Got Real!

“OR” condition in filters!!

The potential impacts of this one will be felt far and wide, now with the ability to create view filters with multiple rules and nested sets with combination of AND and OR conditions.


levels in 3D views

Levels in 3D views

This functionality was always part of Vasari and then Conceptual Massing, leaving many pondering why…?
Either way, now you can understand and manipulate important datum heights in your project in 3D views.


3d software for uncropped perspective views

Uncropped perspective views

It’s a beautiful thing! Work in full-screen uncropped perspective view.

Move around the view freely with navigation commands such as Zoom, Pan, and Orbit…


3d software for 3d pattern design

Double-fill patterns Double-fill patterns

Go Revit, Go Revit, Go Revit!! After many years of building hatch patterns in third party apps to compensate for this short-coming, you’ll have to excuse my excitement…

Double-fill patterns!!

But wait, there’s more…

Double Fill Patterns in Cut! OR Surface!

Go Revit, Go Revit, Go Revit


custom steel connection design

Custom steel connections

For those of us using apps like Enscape and Iris Prospect, this is going to revolutionise our experience of steel connections. With an entire new tab dedicated to Enhanced detailed steel modeling, the ability to create your own steel connections with dedicated tools is sure to be a massive improvement. I can’t wait to see what people do with this.


3d software for engineering documentation for steel

Engineering documentation for steel

Create accurate engineering documentation for structural steel, including details with steel connections.


3d software for rebar shape design

Free-form rebar shape matching

Use Revit to match existing rebar shape families or create new rebar shape families based on free-form bar geometry.


3d design data storage

Autodesk Drive

Securely store, preview, and share your 2D and 3D design data using data storage designed for individuals and small teams.
revit precast girder slabs automation

Precast girder slabs automation

Perform segmentation; add reinforcement according to predefined rules; generate shop drawings; and run CAM Export.


revit complex piping network design

Complex piping networks

Improved pressure drop analysis for complex networks, supporting primary/secondary separation for hydronic systems.


Keep an eye on our blogs for further investigations into these and more tools.
