Add an option to change the default isometric 3D view to a perspective 3D view with “free-flight controls”, without the need of setting up cameras, as any other Autodesk 3D product has (Autocad, 3ds Max, etc..).
Walls (straight, curved, based on non-circular curves) should be possible to Attach not only to Roofs and Floors, but also to other Walls (also those built “by face” from Masses) and to Stairs.
Allow sketch lines of Floors created by automatic generation from Mass Families (Floor by Face) to be editable as splines. Currently those lines are not splines and cannot be edited or Spunless they are straight, so they are pretty useless for further modeling of anything more complex than a cuboid.
Create a family browser, which works outside of Revit and allows viewing families in plan, section and 3D as they would appear in project environment. It should contains all the necessary file management tools, like searching, grouping based on different criteria, automatizing creation of library folder structure etc.
Refrence Planes in Revit should be visible and detectable in 3D, just like it has been done in Vasari. I would help a lot in modeling.
Currently existing Filters allow controlling visibility and graphics of objects according to various criteria, but are very inconvenient for simple selection tasks. In order to select a group of objects meeting certain criteria, one needs to create a filter for objects NOT meeting those criteria and make them invisible. It is counterintuitive and troublesome. Revit should have selection mechanism allowing explicitely selecting all objects, which meet specific criteria.
It would help for fast intuitive finding of the right views if the background in projectbrowser would be possible to divide in different colors for plans, ceiling plans, sections, schedules, sheets etc.
Allow changing names of Values in Color Schemes in the Edit Color Scheme window. Currently the only way to change the name of a Value is to delete the Value entry and recreate it under a different name. But to delete a Value, all the objects (e.g. Rooms) in the project with this Value have to be deleted first, what makes the whole operation almost impossible.
Currently, when transferring materials from one project to another using Manage->Settings->Transfer Project Standards command there are only two options:
- New Only – the existing Materials in the target project remain intact and only the new ones from the source project are imported
- Overwrite – ALL the Materials, which are different in Source project will be overwritten in the Target project. This is very inconvenient as there is often a need of overwriting only selected Materials in the Target project. A simple check box next to every Material detected by the command would fix the issue, so that the user could explicitly select what Materials should be changed.
Linked Revit models should show up in views that have “underlay” enabled.
Have the ability to create sections or elevations while in “edit” mode.
Several tools in Revit have some kind of filtering functionality, which allows to select object based on the values of their selected parameters – e.g Browser Organization, Schedule Properties, Filters – see the samples below. Usually several parameters and their values can be selected at the same time, but they are always in the logical AND relationship. You can never use OR. Trying to find a workaround (one of tens of “workarounds” one has to look for when working with Revit) usually fails, because the number of fields with parameters provided is fixed (e.g three in Browser Organization) and not enough to create the desired result with AND and negation (what is theoretically always possible). Is this such a problem for mighty Autodesk to add an AND/OR selection, switch, radio button or whatever?
The left image above shows the Filtering functionality of Browser Organization settings. Currently it is not possible to display Views in the Project Browser Views, which belong to, say, Architectural and Coordination Disciplines only. Allowing using logical OR would solve the problem immediately. Autodesk, please, have mercy upon us !!!
Worksets, their configuration and naming play a big role in maintaining and proliferating architectural office standards with large projects. For years Worksets have been used by architects for much more, than they were designed, namely as all purpose containers helping a lot in organizing Revit contents (the closest functionality to layers that Revit has). It is one of the issues Autodesk must not be aware of as for all those years they were unable or unwilling to include Worksets into Project Templates (.rte files). As always in Revit there is a “workaround” to do it, but why do we have to fight Revit again instead of using it? Could someone from Autodesk finally fix this simple, but important flaw?
I would like to set view range in an elevation graphically instead of the “where am I looking” guessing game.
You should be able to shade rows in schedules just like you can shade columns.
