Highlights of Revit Building 9.1

Autodesk released Revit Building 9.1 a couple weeks ago with only a handful of new features. This is probably the smallest feature set to date that has been released from the Revit team.

Here are some of the new features added to Revit Building 9.1:

  • Interoperability
    • Enhancements to DWF exports
      • Rooms and Area properties export to DWF
      • Element GUIDs included in export to DWF
    • Import and Export with PNG image format
    • Export Room/Area reports to HTML
    • Specify building type and zip code for gbXML files
  • Views
    • Hide Elevation Tags per scale
  • Modeling
    • Moving end-joined components
      • New grip point where multiple object's endpoints come together
      • The grip will move all the components together without breaking the connection
    • Trim/Extend now works with braces and beams
    • Creation of non-planar beams
  • Details and Annotations
    • Revision clouds and tags have a new visibility option
    • The option has three options:
      • None - does not show cloud or revision tag
      • Tag - displays the tag and draws the cloud but makes it not visible
      • Cloud and Tag - displays the cloud and tag
    • New area property for filled regions
