Updated Version of Revit

The newest version of Autodesk Revit 2019 first released on 11th April. The annual subscription of this software is $2,250. BIM stands for building information modeling. Revit subscribers already saw different updates happened in 2018.

Dynamo 2.0 is free, and also compatible with Autodesk Revit 2017, 2018 and 2019. It is an open source platform. In this platform users can add computer generated designs and coding with Revit. Though dynamo studio is completely differ from this. Dynamo studio is based on dynamo technology. There are several changes happening in dynamo 2.0. The changes are structural, file formats and compatibility changes, and also changes in programming language.

The Updated Features

1.) Improvement of view filters: According to the Autodesk Revit blog post now revit can control to view filters with the 'or' Boolean operator. In the past designers could view with the 'and' operator but now or activates various opportunities. Now designers query up building elements which have a two hour fire rating. 'And' , 'or' boolean operators are activated in view filters in Revit 2019.

2.) The user interface: Like Microsoft and Adobe Revit 2019 gives a tabbed index to the users. Users are able to dock or toggle through the views by using the user interface. This feature also gives multi monitor support to the users and users can easily drag different views and windows across the multiple displays.

3.) Double fill patterns: Designers are also able to overlay two fill patterns for improving the drawing graphics. Users are also able to pair a background fill pattern like solid hue with the foreground fill pattern like the hatch and elements like materials and elements to render in different section views and cuts.

Dynamo 2.0

File Format: Now Dynamo saves the JSON file. JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation. Graphs and custom nodes created in Dynamo 2.0. It is not compatible with the previous version of Dynamo 2.0. After the installation of the new update all 1.x version based files can be reserved and migrated to the new format with a backup copy of original version.

Node Library: This node library is made for reducing the redundancy and browsing very smoothly. Under the 'add on' subheading all the custom and non default nodes will appear. The library window can be resized. It also can be collapsed by manipulating edges of the panel.

DesignScript Language Updates

This scripting language is very simple and easy to understand. In this new feature '=' sign doesn't need to be used for return statements. Now users are able to write 'return x'. they don't need to write 'return = x'
