Revit 2010 Advantage Pack.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to Autodesk's Revit Blogger event... This was an online webcast review, featuring, and demonstrating the newest package of extensions and features for Revit 2010 Products.

This package is only being released to subscription users. After watching and listening to the new features for an hour and half now it looks to be quite a giant step. I am sure you have all read the features lists on many other blogs already but here is my quick list:

  • Curved Beams

I also asked about how those of us using student subscriptions will or will not be able to obtain this package. The people at Autodesk believe there is a way for us to use the subscription packages. When they tell me how to use it you will be the first to know!

The meeting was great and I cannot wait to show you all some of the many new improvements to the software. The Wood Framing Extension is one of my favorite and it will be yours when you see it as well. Stay tuned for some follow up posts.
