Revit MEP 2010 - New Features

Autodesk Revit MEP 2010 building information modeling (BIM) software is a comprehensive engineering design solution for mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineers, designers and drafters. Gain from the competitive advantages of BIM to support better decision making with Autodesk Revit MEP software. More clearly identify, share, and resolve system interferences and clashes when collaborating with other design disciplines. Help accelerate engineering design with tools that promote better productivity and support sustainable building systems design and analysis.

What’s New
Enhanced multidiscipline model and design collaboration
• Import manufactured building components from Autodesk® Inventor® without undesirable loss of data.
• More than 300 ASHRAE duct fittings and ASME pipe fittings are added to the application.
• Enhanced integration with Autodesk® Seek web service lets designers search a vast library of 2D and 3D building products and publish customized designs to the service.
• New tool for automatic space generation lets designers generate multiple spaces from all “Room Bounding” elements present in the floor plan. Also generate spaces from linked Revit Architecture files without physically selecting each enclosure.
• Notable performance gains for updating network flow, adding elements and connecting to networks, and design manipulation.
• Expanded API (application programming interface) support.

Improved User Interface
• New customizable ribbon toolbar is task-oriented with redesigned, intuitive icons.
• Customizable Quick Access Toolbar allows one-click access to an individual user’s favorite and most frequently used tools.
• New “Options Bar,” navigation toolbar and enhanced Tooltips help improve productivity and user experience.

Intelligent Systems Engineering
• New heating and cooling loads analysis, weather data tools and building space calculation settings.
• Option to generate three levels of heating and cooling loads reports (simple, standard and detailed).
• gbXML (green building XML) export improvements allow users to help streamline the collaboration process with external analysis applications.

seen anything on Revit Architecture 2010 New Features...this MEP list seems a bit short to me...I sure hope they addressed some other issues and added some features.

Any Cable Tray or Conduit on the electrical side?

I haven't delved deep enough into it yet. As soon as I find out, I will blog about it. In the meantime, Andekan.com has cable trays for you and fully parametric. Let me know and I can get you quote on pricing.

Any update to this? Specifically, have they done something about riser diagrams and improved the panel schedules?
