Autodesk Revit Sunrise - Online Preview

The Autodesk blog Inside the Factory announced yesterday that Autodesk Revit Sunrise is now available. Want to download it now? CLICK HERE

If you're curious about what the next major release of Revit might include it IS an indication of projects they have been working on. That probably can be translated into "we'll probably see it in the next release". If I grab my crystal ball and look back to last year I see a Autodesk Revit Sundial. If I gaze into it longer I also see Revit 2015 R2 arrive in September (2014). Hmmm...I wonder if history might repeat itself?

Need a little more info to check it out first? Here's a list of features you can check out...(do read their post for explanations)
  • Global parameters
  • Cancel print/export
  • Occlusion culling
  • Color fills
  • Family Editor
  • Sheet Issues/Revisions dialog
  • Revit links
  • Worksharing
  • View range
  • Underlay
  • Filters dialog
  • Reference plane names
  • Perspective views
  • Spot slope
  • Wall joins
  • Display of walls
  • Railings
  • Autodesk Raytracer rendering
  • Energy Analysis:
  • Electrical settings
  • Assigning a distribution system
  • Display of ducts
Need a Picture to help? Here's a screen shot of the proposed View Range Dialog.

Nice to include more graphics. It would be cool if they changed the dialog for ceiling plan view range orientation. Cooler still if there were some grips we could drag up and down to adjust the planes eh?

Having the View range graphic is a good idea, and a move in right direction. But I wish they would have taken a BOLD step in the right direction with something better fleshed out (like the interactive grip you mention) rather than recycling something at least 3 years old form their help documents. Furthermore, they did not bother to change it per different types of view range for different types of views - namely RCPs. So what shows up in RCP view View Range dialog box is flat out wrong. No?
