Revit Technology Ships Revit 4.1Parametric Building Modeller?s 11th Release Features New Functionality and Performance (January 17, 2002)
Revit 4.1 delivers user-definable scheduling and tagging of families, extending parametric building modelling beyond mere documentation of designs to AEC information management. Users can now add and define parameters from external tables and attach those properties to families within a Revit model. Users can schedule families in multiple categories and create custom tags based on any parameter, exponentially increasing the value of Revits tagging and scheduling capabilities. Revit 4.1 provides greater flexibility in designing schedules and positioning column headers to read horizontally or vertically, enabling improved schedule design and ease of use.
Revit 4.1 also introduces functionality that makes it even easier for project managers operating in a migrating CAD firm to integrate Revit with other legacy CAD programs. Using this interoperability, users can cross-link drawing graphics between Revit and legacy CAD environments, ensuring that any work done using legacy CAD is automatically updated and managed in Revit, while legacy CAD users on the team also always have current information from the Revit model. Ultimately, managers have greater flexibility in utilizing staff who are proficient in legacy CAD tools on Revit-based projects.
