Autodesk Revit 2023 Unveiled
Increased performance, productivity features seeded from customer requests, and smarter ways to work with data, both on the desktop and in the cloud, are all said to be included in new release.
April 8, 2022
Autodesk announces that Revit 2023 is in release and rolling out globally. Customers can watch for a notification in their Autodesk Account that 2023 Autodesk products are available, or they can check with your company’s account administrator.
This new version of Revit is said to be more intuitive, and more fine-tuned to the way its users work. It features more than 30 feature requests sourced from Revit Ideas.
Revit 2023 balances subtle enhancements with new introductions: upgrades that improve the quality of life today (such as Swap views on a sheet), alongside future-facing opportunities such as the new granular Data Exchange workflows enabled with Revit 2023 and Autodesk Docs in the AEC Collection. Its performance enhancements are aimed at faster computing, especially when working with large models.
Go-to Modeling and Documentation Tools
Like last year’s release, 2023 has improvements that target everyday design to documentation workflows. Filter by sheet in schedules is an addition for ensuring the right data winds up in your documentation sets. Schedules continue to get built out, with conditional formatting added to key schedules for families and types, an enhancement sourced from the Revit community.
Find new features to control the display and tagging of displaced elements, bringing more clarity to complex annotations. View filters, more cuttable categories and a new Measure in 3D tool are in Revit 2023 and mark the well-rounded advancement of Revit as a professional-grade, design-to-documentation workhorse.
More flexibility for Structural Engineers
The Revit 2023 features a new analytical modeling workflow for structural engineers. Model in context in 2D and 3D views to define design intent autonomously from the physical model, or start with a parametric “analysis-first” approach to develop the analytical model from the engineering requirements for buildings, roofing structures, pavilions, stairs, and more.
With more automation for your steel connection libraries and many improvements for rebar, including adaptive placement and better visualization, Revit 2023 is a complete toolset for the structural engineer and detailer.
Plan-based Load Analysis
A new electrical analysis workflow introduced in Revit 2023 is designed to use linked DWGs, PDFs or Revit models as the basis for load takeoffs within Revit. These load takeoffs, along with new capabilities to conceptually define electrical system elements, allow users to determine preliminary building load and load on main equipment components directly within the Revit environment.
