In the 2010 subscription advantage release, and later for all in 2011, Revit Architecture users received access to more of the Revit Structure functionality that had been previously unavailable.
This involved exposing more of the structure tools and enhancing elements like slabs so the direction could be controlled via the sketch and not just the span direction annotation.
We also demoted the Architectural Column making the Structural column the default choice for the column split button. All this was in response to customer feedback.
As part of some further efforts to improve all our Revit products (including Revit MEP, and Revit Structure). We would like to understand your needs and your workflow better; and particularly your need to work on more than one Revit product for your job. Which features/functions do you would need in addition to your primary design software whichever it is?
To help us gather this information we have a survey:
sorry - survey is now closed
It should take about 15 minutes of your time to complete and the information gathered will only be used by our product design team.
Comments on this post are also welcome . How are you using Revit in multi-discipline scenarios?
I am happy to introduce a new blog in the Revit-focused blogosphere. BIM Apps has just been started by Emile Kfouri, the BIM Application Development Manager here at the Factory. This is an excellent topic that I think is very relevant to the readers of this blog. He is going to focus exclusively on the variety of add-ins that are being created to suppliment the Revit experience. (An important correction: BIM Apps will focus on add-ins for the entire Autodesk BIM ecosystem: Revit, Navisworks, Vasari, etc.) For example, his first post is on Eagle Point's Siteworks. The timing is perfect. The API is one of Revit's killer apps and it is a great time to shed some sunlight on the topic. So take a look, fill out the survey and leave some comments about the types of add-ins you would like him to write about.
