Exploring the Latest Features in Revit 2024.1.1: An In-Depth Look at the New AEC Tech Drop
September 25, 20232 min read
For many professionals in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, Revit 2024.1.1 needs no introduction. Revit is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) software tool developed by Autodesk that allows users to design a building and its components in 3D. It's an essential software that keeps evolving to meet the ever-growing demands of the AEC industry. So, let’s dive in and see what’s new in the latest update.
Quality Improvements and Fixes
The latest update for Revit 2024.1.1 addresses 25 quality issues that aim to improve its functionality and stability. The team behind Revit has been hard at work to ensure a quality user experience. This is an important update for all Revit 2024 users, and it's recommended for everyone using a 2024 version to update to this version as soon as possible.
One of the issues addressed in this update is an extensible storage schema issue that affected addons and projects that were upgraded to Revit 2024. This issue is particularly important for worksharing users. To avoid the possibility of older versions of Revit 2024 reintroducing this problem back to the project teams’ model, it's recommended that all project team members use this release of Revit or higher.
Revit 2024.1.1 also includes several functionality fixes, including:
Resolution of an issue when an element with Entity attached is operated by a user in an upgraded file and a previous version file is opened in the same session containing the same schema.
Fix for problems related to the graph nodes functionality in Dynamo for Revit.
Assignment of unique GUIDs to parts that have stored GUIDs to prevent duplicates.
Retaining of element GUIDs when changing the element type using the type selector.
Improvement in stability when upgrading models with P&ID elements and when importing or linking PDF files.
Stability and Performance Fixes
Revit 2024.1.1 also offers several stability and performance improvements. These updates aim to enhance the user experience and streamline workflows even further. Among these are:
Prevention of potential stability issues due to periodic spline-based surfaces created from imported or linked CAD geometry.
Improvement in the Personal Accelerator’s cleanup behavior when it is tracking many models.
Enhancement of stability when creating a ceiling in a ceiling plan, dragging or flipping MEP family connector grip controls, and editing a panel schedule template.
Improvement in the performance and stability of flow and pressure drop calculations of fabrication models containing many networks.
These improvements demonstrate Autodesk's commitment to enhancing and refining Revit to ensure it continues to be a valuable tool for AEC professionals.
