AutoDesk have uploaded some Revit 2013 Videos.

AutoDesk have uploaded some Revit 2013 Videos. There are a couple without and description and they have lost the RAC RST and MEP identifyer, I assume due to One Box being released. However these acronyms assist Revit Users in quickly identifying who the feature will directly benefit. In the listing below I have added some information about that to assist you.

As with last year the big winners with new and enhanced features are the MEP guys, followed by Architecture and last as normal are Structural Enhancements - RC detailing in Revit is nothing more than a glorified toy, you still could not detail and schedule to UK and Eurocodes using it.

LIST UPDATED 5th April 2012

Core Feature:- Autodesk Revit 2013 continues to extend the powerful capabilities to produce shop drawings.

Core Feature:- Autodesk Revit 2013 extends the capabilities to support construction modeling by allowing further customization in parts. Parts can now be merged, exclude, and restore. Two or more parts can be merged into a single part, excludes will removes parts from the project, and lastly, you can restore parts that was previously excluded at any time.You can divide parts with parametric gap offset

Structural Feature:- Autodesk Revit 2013 provides a new feature named Structural Fabric Area.
Structural Feature:- Area and Path Reinforcement has been updated with new behaviour that makes these elements containers for hosting Structural Rebar.

Structural Feature:- In all places where automatic Rigid Links would previously have been generated, now new Analytical Link elements are generated. Now analytical Links can be created manually in the Analytical Adjust mode in places where you need them. The placement editor allows you to select 2 nodes between which a new analytical link will be created.

Structural Feature:- In Autodesk Revit 2013, you have greater control over the analytical model. Analytical floors and analytical foundation slabs now have corner analytical nodes in Analytical Edit mode which allow direct manipulation of the analytical model. A new openings editor enables you to indicate openings to be ignored in analytical floors, analytical foundation slabs, and walls.

Structural Feature:- Fillet and Hook references have been improved and now they let you define a rebar or rebar set in the appropriate position within a fillet or hook. By snapping to these references you can avoid interferences and collisions with other rebar. After modifying properties of rebars or reinforced elements snapping to the references is preserved and adjusted to modified settings

MEP Feature:- Improve space and zone calculations as a foundation for energy analysis by placing a family calculation point inside a space to help ensure that the family is included in the calculation data. Use results to help inform design decisions to better predict the performance of the systems.

MEP engineers can design ducts to meet with ASHRAE standards by using built in tables that are accessible during design.

MEP Feature:-  Design and document more efficient building systems and improve performance with more accurate reporting. New Pressure Loss Reports can be generated for a single duct or pipe system or multiple systems. MEP engineers can set up your report in a number of ways that includes whether or not to show the critical path used, etc. The report format can be saved for use later and obsolete reports can be deleted.

MEP engineers can access Routing Preferences to design pipe systems to help meet industry standards. Real-world materials can then be applied to pipe and pipe fitting sizes to help drive calculations necessary to determine pipe size to support required flow.

MEP Feature:- Design duct and pipe systems with greater accuracy with tools for calculating flow and pressure loss. Flow and pressure is now calculated separately for each sub-segment of a duct or pipe run when using taps instead of tee fittings to streamline the process. Calculated results can be viewed using the system inspector on duct and pipe runs. You can see the pressure loss and flow data for each sub-segment between duct and pipe branches that use tap fittings.

MEP Feature:- No Description
