Autodesk Revit 2013: So what's new?

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

I know I'm a little late to the party with this one, but nevertheless here goes.....

Even if you haven't yet sampled it for yourself yet, I am sure you have heard about the release of Revit 2013 over the last few days? So the obvious question is "What is new in Revit 2013?". It just so happens that the well respected Revit guru and blooger David Light has produced a comprehensive run down of all the new features. You can read David's report here. You can expect tutorials and articles on each of the new features in the coming months, here at Revit Zone.

In this article we will take an introductory look at Revit Stairs. What I want to do is explain the basic components and workflow that make up a typical Stair element in Revit. Once we are done with the theory, we will run through a very basic, quick example in which we will create some stairs from scratch. Hopefully this will give you the knowledge (and enthusiasm!) to then delve a little deeper into what the Stairs tool can produce.

In this article we are going to look at the use of the “Edit Profile” tool, used to manipulate the profile boundary of a Revit wall element.

I've found a new blog: Family Jewels

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

In my daily perusal of the interwebs I cam across this "jewel" of a Revit blog- "Family Jewels"

As you may imagine, this blog is all about creating content (in the form of "families") for Revit. The five authors (William Spier, Ian McGaw, Martin J Schmid, Jason A Spleha and Scott Brisk) have done a stirling job in producing some great information.

Check out Family Jewels here.
