Revit 2019 Review: The Best Updates and New Features in Revit 2019

April 12, 2018

Revit 2019 is Here.


Autodesk released the latest version of its industry-leading building modelling software yesterday, consistent with previous Revit releases that have been released mid-April each year.


The new release continues to hone in on optimizing workflows, improving on a number of features from previous versions.


The (Jedi) Revit Masters on our team have been playing around with the new Revit release like it’s Christmas morning, so we’ve got a pretty decent sample of first impressions. 


Some comments I’ve heard from some of our team from across the room:


  • “Alright, I like it, I like it, oh – hmm.”

  • “Ok, where did they put the…okay. Why would you move that?”

  • “Wow it's about time.”


According to Autodesk, the top two requested features for Revit 2019 have now become a reality. (They say there were over 2,000 votes to add these features – strength in numbers, ladies and gentlemen.)


As might be expected from any update, the reviews are mixed, but on the whole positive. 


I sat down and took stock of what our Revit pros have to say about the new update, and compiled a list of what they seem to agree are the most notable features to Revit.


So here they are, our favorite new and updated features in Revit 2019.


(Warning: we're heading into territory where you probably shouldn't even try to explain to your spouse why these things are exciting. Just tell him/her you're happy. That's all they care about.)
