Top 10 features in Revit 2023 to look At

The Revit 2023 is full of new features, updates, and bug fixes, which will be of great help to REVIT users. Users have already started appreciating it, indicating that soon it might become the most stable version of the software.

Revit 2023 claims performance improvements, more productivity capabilities, and more careful data management approaches on desktop computers and in the cloud.

Our team received a first peek at the new Revit 2023 version, and here are the top 10 features and updates we think you should know about.

Let’s take a dig at the Top Features and Benefits of Autodesk Revit 2023.

What’s New in Autodesk Revit 2023?

The AEC professionals are optimistic about the Autodesk Revit 2023 update, and why would they not? It’s faster, easier, and more tailored to their workflow. With around 30 feature requests originating from Revit Ideas (A Revit Community platform to directly communicate your thoughts, ideas & opinions for upcoming product enhancements with the Revit team).

Revit is evolving to meet the changing needs of its users. This Revit New version 2023 includes significant speed improvements aimed at efficient execution, especially when working with large models.

1: A new Revit 2023 Icon

The first thing you will notice is the ICON; it’s blue and easy to see. And Autodesk has introduced new logos throughout the board, including for Revit( no cost-cutting there )

The transformation is remarkable; let’s see how the architectural designers react to this pretty change in the logo design. It’s gonna be ironic!

2: Measure in 3D Views

If you ask any BIM engineer or architect, they will tell you how strenuous it was to change the workplace in 3d view just to check the measurement. But the Revit 2023 update is now a thing of the past.

Shifting the workplace in 3D is no longer necessary only to check a measurement.

In Revit 2023, the ability to measure between two points in a 3D perspective was added. And To limit the measurement in a plane perpendicular to the first point, use CTRL or the override shortcut SP (Snap Perpendicular).

You can access this feature on the ribbon, under the Details Panel, in any family creation or edit tool spaces.

3: Filter by sheets For schedules

With the new feature “Filter by Sheet” check box to the Schedules Filter Properties, your project schedules will automatically remove elements that do not form part of the view presented on the sheet and will update accordingly as views get changed.

Let’s take an example here when the door schedule for a project is placed on the first-floor plan; it includes all of the doors in the model. The program will automatically adjust if you change the views on the sheet later.

4: Views in Use Identification

In the “Project Browser,” visual markers are added next to each view, which turns blue once placed on a sheet. This dramatically simplifies tracking and managing your idea.

5: Fill Pattern in 3D Families

This new feature of Revit 2023 enables family creators and detailers to generate fill patterns on selected views for enhanced, exact value (3D views excluded).

You can access this feature on the ribbon, under the Details Panel, in any family creation or edit tool spaces.

6: SWAP VIEW

In Revit 2023, you can change one view on a sheet for another using a contextual Ribbon command. It is a quick way to switch views on a sheet without deleting the present picture and then drag/drop another idea.

In Revit 2023, you can change one view on a sheet for another using a contextual Ribbon command. It is a quick way to switch views on a sheet without deleting the current picture and then drag/drop another idea.

To utilise this feature simply.

Begin with a Revit project with multiple views and sheets on views.
Navigate to a sheet view and choose a picture from that sheet to swap.
To move to a different view, use the dropdown menu in the contextual Ribbon called Modify | Viewports.

7: Mechanical Control Devices and Plumbing Equipment Categories

There is a new category of Plumbing Equipment and Mechanical Control Devices (for things like thermostats) with corresponding family parameters.

It can now re-host a connector in the family editor, making it possible to move it within the family editor without redefining it.

Mechanical, Plumbing, and Control Devices.

Now it’s even more sophisticated to introduce these new MEP disciplines categories in Revit 2023.

8: Pick Working Plane

With the single “Pick Plane” function included in the Revit 2023 update, you may now select your working planes in a more streamlined manner. Now you can choose a Work plan for families or projects with ease.

A new button on a dropdown menu allows users to select a plane directly from a view. Alternatively, you can use the Keyboard Shortcut ‘PK’ to get the Pick a Plane command.

9: Rebar Solid/Line Display driven by LOD

It is no longer essential to change the rebar’s visible status for it to appear as solid bars or as a line. Revit 2023’s new functionality provided an accurate solution to that.

And the solution is Its adaptive Rebar propagation. The Detail Level options now control the View Visibility States.

Architecture designers can replicate and adjust shape-driven rebar from the source to the destination using Revit 2023.

10: Connection Automation

And here comes another one from the lost, Revit 2023 ‘s new toolkit for connection automation.

And here comes another one from the lost, Revit 2023 ‘s new toolkit for connection automation. To improve productivity, it came with this feature; You will no longer need to run through the project, eliminating undesirable “over propagated” connections in every corner of the model.

By choosing the ” connections and automation feature “in the connections panel under the tool ribbon’s structural and steel tabs, you will be presented with what is called a ” Dynamo driven toolset.”

Conclusion

Revit 2023 is undoubtedly a feature-packed update to Revit, featuring numerous speed changes meant to assist in speedier processing, mainly when dealing with big and complicated models. Aside from the logo, newbies are unlikely to notice much of a difference, but experienced users and BIM professionals are likely to benefit the most from this overhaul.
