Revit Structure 2012 What New?! (Revit 2012 so với 2011 và 2010)

[img source] = revitst
Brochure hơi cũ nhé:

Analytical Model Enhancements
Enhancements have been made to help you create and manage the structural analytical model, including greater control over the analytical model and better consistency with the structural physical model. Specific areas of improvement are:
-Better control of visibility/graphics
-The inclusion of analytical parameters in analytical model elements
-The addition of a surface to floor, slab, and wall analytical models
-The addition of the “enable analytical model” parameter to physical model elements
-Easier identification of linear analytical model end segments
-Improved full edit mode for analytical adjustments
-New model adjustment features allowing for editing via nodes and direct manipulation widgets
-The ability to adjust linear analytical models at each end with new projection and hosting behaviors
-Enhanced auto-detection for the preservation of physical element joins and attachments
*Nhận xét: Nỗ lực nâng cấp để "sơ đồ tính khung" hoàn thiện hơn cho cả việc trình bày mô hình kết cấu cấu kiện lẫn sơ đồ khung.

Reinforcement Enhancements
Enhancements have been made to help you more easily define and visualize concrete reinforcement in Revit Structure. New methods for managing the definition of reinforcement as well as controlling its placement have been added, including:
-New multi-planer reinforcement support
-Structural connection category improvements
-Support for hosting reinforcement in generic model families
-More accurate display of self-intersecting reinforcement bars
-Support for attaching stirrups beyond cover references
-Improvements to rebar bend dimension display

*Nhận xét: Nâng cấp bố trí thép trong kết cấu bê tông cốt thép, đợi các kỹ sư kết cấu phán xét xem là "liệu có thể dùng được với TCXD - VN không nhé"

Revit 2012 API Features (gom vao day thoi nhe)

Source: thebuildingcoder by Jeremy Tammik
"Revit 2012 and the other Autodesk 2012 products have been announced, and already there is abundant information on it on the web. David Light discusses quite a few of the user interface and product features.

A detailed exploration of some of the following items could fill volumes, but I'll try to briefly give you an idea of what each feature is about, at least. First, here is simply an overview of the highlights of the Revit 2012 API features. See below for a brief explanation of each item:

Modifications and Updates Overview
These are the rather mundane but important issues which affect existing applications:
•.NET Framework 4.0
•Final bye bye ini, hello add-in manifest
•Vendor identification
•Manual regeneration mode
•Compound structure and wall sweeps
•Line and fill patterns
•Independent tag
•Import and export
•Save and close
•Reference properties
•Structural analytical model

New Features Overview
This is the really exciting and in some cases radical new stuff:
•Open and Activate Document
•Setting Active View
•Custom Ribbon Tab Management
•Analysis of Room and Space 3D geometry
•Detailed energy analysis
•Conceptual energy analysis
•Analysis Visualization Framework enhancements
•MEP API enhancements
•Rebar enhancements
•Construction modelling
•Point Clouds
•Extensible Storage
•Linked Models
•Performance Advisor API
•And More!

Modifications and Updates Explanation
Many of the modifications have to do with cleaning up the separation between the user interface and the API, completing the database/user interface split that was introduced in the Revit 2011 API. Many changes are also due to improved automatic API code generation procedures that align the API much better with the internal Revit code and functionality.
•.NET Framework 4.0: the Revit 2012 API has been enhanced to run with the .NET 4.0 runtime; to debug add-ins, you must Use Visual Studio 2010; add-ins compiled with VS 2008 will run outside the debug environment.
•Final bye bye ini, hello add-in manifest: loading of external applications and commands through Revit.ini is no longer supported.
•Vendor identification: an additional add-in manifest tag identifying the application developer is required. It makes use of the Autodesk Registered Developer Symbol RDS.
•Manual regeneration mode: automatic regeneration mode has been removed. All add-ins now use manual regeneration mode.
•Compound structure and wall sweeps: the compound layer structure is now read-write and can be fully created and access via the API. It was previously read-only.
•Line and fill patterns: new API classes.
•Independent tag: API changed.
•Import and export: API changed.
•Save and close: API changes, better separation of UI and API, preview image can be set.
(an toàn cho file dự án)
•Reference properties: the Reference class has been completely renovated.
•Events: various event argument changes.
•Move/Mirror/Rotate/Array: a new ElementTransformUtils class has been introduced to replace the previous methods on the Document class. Implicit dependencies on the current view have been removed.
•Materials: new material classes are introduced and the existing ones deprecated, part of a company-wide materials management undertaking.
•Structural analytical model: API changes.
•Rebar: API changes.
New Features Explanation
Some of the new features are longstanding and frequently requested wish list items, other are unexpected and exciting completely new areas:
•Open and Activate Document: a document can be programmatically opened and activated in the user interface.
•Setting Active View: the active view can be set programmatically.
•Custom Ribbon Tab Management: custom ribbon tabs can be created.
•Worksharing: a comprehensive read-only API to worksharing features is introduced; access the list of worksets, find out what elements are in the workset, who borrowed what, has the element gone out of date with central.
•Geometry: some really exciting new geometry features: applications can now create their own geometry; the geometry library was previously read-only. Boolean operations can be performed, and the results can be displayed using the Analysis Visualisation Framework AVF. More detailed access to and analysis of geometrical aspects of Revit elements is supported.
•Analysis of Room and Space 3D geometry: We can now get the 3D geometry of spatial elements like rooms and spaces. It provides access to elements which form the boundary of the rooms and for those who needs fine-grained information of the geometry of the room. You can now access the detailed geometry of the elements that form the boundary of the rooms. Until now we were only able to read the general shape of the room – now we can associate that shape with the elements that form the boundary. One of the existing samples, RoofsRooms, which used 300 lines of code to find out if the top boundary of the room intersected the roof or not, has now reduced to 30-40 lines of code.
•Detailed energy analysis: obtain and analyze the contents of a project's detailed energy model, as seen in the Export to gbXML and the Heating and Cooling Loads features; produce an analytical thermal model from the physical model of a building composed of spaces, zones and planar surfaces that represent the actual volumetric elements of the building.
•Conceptual energy analysis: provide access to the elements and objects created by Revit to perform energy analysis on conceptual design models.
•Analysis Visualization Framework enhancements: support multiple analysis results in the same view, store persistent meta data.
•MEP API enhancements
◦Placeholder ducts and pipes: Identify, create, and convert placeholders to physical elements
◦PipeSettings, PipeSizeSettings: Read and write access to the plumbing settings governing pipe sizes in Revit MEP
◦DuctInsulation, PipeInsulation, DuctLining: Read, write and create access to new procedural insulation and lining features
•Rebar enhancements: multi-planar 3D rebars, corbels.
(nâng cấp rebar, để các kỹ sư kết cấu kiếm tra xem sao nhé)
•Construction modelling: access to parts and assemblies, shop drawings, isolate groups of elements.
(các cấu kiện được trình bày kỹ hơn về cấu tạo, cho việc làm hô sơ thiết kế thi công)
•Point Clouds: Engine API for point cloud generation, Client API for point cloud consumption.
(1 vấn đề mới có thể rất hữu dụng)
•Extensible Storage: read and assign application-owned data to specific elements, create custom XML-based schemas for data storage.
(lưu trữ gì?)
•Linked Models: find external file references, trace the file path of external files and understand the load state in a Revit session, identify if a file is imported or merely linked, what kinds of link, what path.
•Performance Advisor API: issue warnings for elements or settings that may cause performance degradation or affect model performance , access built-in Revit rules, define, add and remove custom rules, execute any combination of rules.
•And More:
◦Adaptive Components
◦IFC Document Open
◦FamilyParameter.GUID property: identify shared parameters.
◦Copy Element: copy and translate (copy + move).
◦Workplane Flip for Family Instances: face-hosted family manipulation.
◦Disallow Wall End Joins
◦Write access to Element Pinned
Sound exciting?
I promise you, it is!

Revit Architecture - RAC 2012 - Có gì mới và nhận xét bình luận chủ quan???

Source:’s New

Construction Modeling Tools

New modeling tools help you derive better construction insight from design models. Split and manipulate objects, such as wall layers and concrete pours, to more accurately represent construction methods. Prepare shop drawings for fabrication more easily with features that give you greater flexibility in documenting assemblies of model elements.
*Nhận xét: Cải thiện việc trình bày cấu kiện rất quan trọng cho các bước thiết kế dự án (nhất là từ bước thiết kế cơ sở) cấu kiện càng được trình bày rõ ràng và kỹ lưỡng sẽ rất tốt.
Nếu như theo nhà sản xuất, việc trình bày kỹ hơn các cấu kiện xây dựng như sàn, dầm, cột, tường (như hình minh hoạ) việc triển khai thiết kế kiến trúc sẽ hiệu quả hơn rất rất nhiều.
Đó là điều rất hoan nghênh và đón đợi.

Point Cloud Tools
Revit® Point Cloud tools connect laser scans directly into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, helping to accelerate renovation and retrofit projects. By visualizing point clouds directly within the Revit software environment, it’s easier than ever to author an as-built model with more confidence and accuracy.
*Nhận xét: nếu là "Realtime data Point Cloud Tools" thì điều đó mới có ý nghĩa!, những gì muốn phản ánh cần sự hiệu quả, nếu không hiệu quả sẽ phản tác dụng.
VD: Chúng tôi không thể xây dựng những căn nhà hiện trạng ở bản đồ Google với bất cứ dự án thiết kế nào, mà chúng tôi còn phải trình bày theo bản đồ quy hoạch đã được phê duyệt của UBND TP, và đó là cả 1 vấn đề.

Conceptual Energy Analysis Tools
Conceptual Energy Analysis tools support sustainable design decision-making during early design.  Using cloud-based analysis tools, you can compare the estimated energy consumption and lifecycle costs of design alternatives within Revit Architecture software.  Analysis results are presented in a highly-visual, graphical format for easy interpretation.
*Nhận xét: Có phải là Vasari X64? :), tôi thì yêu Vasari quá đi chứ lỵ!
Hiện nay VGBC - Lotus Certification đã được thịnh hành ở Hanoi, VNM. việc "làm Green" là lợi thế không những cho doanh nghiệp tư vấn thiết kế, mà còn cho chính những nhà đầu tư bất động sản vì giá trị công trình và hiệu quả kinh tế, thương hiệu của công trinh.

Revit Server
Revit® Server helps project teams in different locations to more easily collaborate on shared Revit models across a wide-area network (WAN). Maintain an integrated collection of Revit central models on a single server that can be accessed from local servers. Built-in redundancy helps provide protection in case of WAN connectivity loss.
*Nhận xét: Những công ty tư vấn thiết kế kiến trúc đa quốc gia sẽ làm dự án có BIM trên WAN sao? có thể đó là công nghệ tốt, những hiện tại thì tôi thấy không cần thiết.
Vấn đề "Checked & Idea" là vấn đề luôn mâu thuẫn giữa những kiến trúc sư luôn cứng đầu và chẳng khi nào phục nhau.
Có chăng thì thi hành như 1 quân đội, và người làm "tướng" được trao đầy đủ "ấn kiếm"

Worksharing Enhancements
Worksharing enhancements help you better understand and collaborate on shared models across the project team. Gain more visibility into element ownership and status to better manage team workflows.

*Nhận xét: Thật là tuyệt diệu điều này, đội làm việc với nhau sẽ rất khoẻ.

Performance Enhancements
Performance enhancements help deliver a smoother experience when working on Revit projects of any size. More multi-threaded operations and improvements to imported data management result in faster open and load times within a project.
*Nhận xét: Nếu sự thật đúng như vậy, tức là lỡ tay trình bày dự án cho bắt mắt với tô bóng bôi màu và bóng đổ, mà "gắp ra sheet" vẫn trơn tru v.v thì đó chính là hạnh phúc của thời gian thư giãn.

Model Linking Enhancements
Model linking enhancements provide more flexibility in working within large projects by allowing you to tag a variety of elements within linked files. New to this release is the ability to tag rooms, areas, keynotes, beams, and beam systems.

*Nhận xét: Năm ngoái năm kia mình lỡ chế nhạo việc "không làm sao để tag cho các linking component element", việc này ổn thoả thì cũng hạnh phúc lắm.

Citrix Readiness
Revit now provides support for Citrix® XenApp™6, giving you more flexibility and options for working from remote locations using a local server.
*Nhận xét: "Hem bit"!!! tra google từ khoá "Citrix XenApp" được link trên!!!

Materials Appearance Libraries
Create your own materials appearance libraries to standardize materials across projects and improve collaboration within the project team. More easily apply finish materials to surfaces, regardless of the underlying physical materials, to generate more accurate quantity take-offs.
*Nhận xét: vật liệu hoàn thiện mà được trình bày dễ hơn, kỹ hơn v.v thì giai đoạn sau của thiết kế cơ sở sẽ rất tốt.

DWG Fidelity
Improvements to DWG™ export functionality allow you to map Revit categories and subcategories to layers in DWG files, giving you more control over layer naming. In addition, you can also map Revit lines, patterns, and fonts to their DWG equivalents.
*Nhận xét: Cải thiện dwg export cũng tốt, nhiều người làm dwg vẫn có thói quen đòi hỏi này nọ mà không thể tự xử lý được để in ra cho đúng và tốt hơn... hhhh, họ cần được học 10 năm ACA cho biết đời, tuy nhiên quản lý kiểu AIA trong ACA vẫn là cách quản lý bao quát và đáng học hỏi.

Visualization Display Options
Visualization enhancements present you with more options for displaying your project. You now have the ability to display edges in realistic views and shadows in consistent colors mode. New semi-transparent views help provide clarity in viewing elements within projects.

*Nhận xét: Nâng cấp hiển thị đồ hoạ nhìn cho bắt mắt rất là tốt, nếu duy trình việc "xuất ra thành vextor" cho các bản in từ việc tô bóng hoặc đổ bóng thì sẽ tuyệt biết bao... nhưng chắc chưa thể làm được điều đó!

3D Mouse Support
Revit now supports use of 3D mice from 3Dconnexion®, so you can gain more control in navigating your models.
*Nhận xét: ÔI, 1 thiết bị đắt tiền sẽ được trang bị tại văn phòng thiết kế, hp quá còn gì

Dimensions Customization
New dimensions enhancements enable you to customize the appearance of leaders when dimensions are pulled off of a dimension line. Dimensions can also be customized to better support documentation needs of users around the world.
*Nhận xét: Rất tuyệt, trong dự án thiết kế rất cần ghi thêm từ chính đường kích thước để thông tin rõ hơn

Family Enhancements
Enhancements to Revit families give you the ability to export out all families from a project for the purpose of creating libraries. You can also import and export family types from the family editor to create family types more easily.
Nâng cấp để dễ hơn sự "định nghĩa loại gì cho cấu kiện là family" như thế người làm family sẽ "múa cho dẻo" - thật là tuyệt vời!

Mọi nhật xét xin dừng lại để chờ đợi bản chính thức phát hành hy vọng vào đầu tháng tư tới, chúng ta sẽ xem xem là "cụ thể thì cái gì sẽ hữu dụng" vào việc triển khai dự án cụ thể.
Chứ như mấy cái "Curtain Panel Pattern Based" quả thực là làm tôi thất vọng, vì nó chỉ được sử dụng để tạo hình, ngoài ra các thông tin khác thì vô dụng.

Chúc may mắn và khoẻ khoắn

Thanks Brian Haines

"Have you ever accidentally repositioned one of your ribbon bar tabs in Revit and were wondering how to get it back into it's original position? Notice in the image below how the "Modify" ribbon tab has been placed to the left of the "Home" ribbon tab.

To reposition the Home ribbon tab back to it's original location simply hold down the "Ctrl" key while dragging the tab back to it's original location....problem fixed!
The same technique will work for Revit Architecture, Revit MEP, Revit Structure and even works on Vasari which has just been introduced on Autodesk Labs.
