What’s New in Autodesk Revit 2015?

Schedule Enhancements with Parameters, Filter & Grand Totals

Schedule Enhancements with Parameters, Filter & Grand Totals

Autodesk Revit software is built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), helping professionals design, build, and maintain higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings.  Using the information-rich models created with Autodesk Revit software, architects, engineers, and construction firms can collaborate to make more-informed decisions earlier in the design process to deliver projects more efficiently.  Any design changes made in Revit models are automatically updated throughout the model, keeping designs and documentation coordinated and more reliable. Autodesk Revit includes features for architectural design, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural engineering, and construction.

Here’s the list of new and updated features to Revit 2015:
