What's new in Revit 2012

Yip!!! It's that time of year again!!
Instead of writing a long post on the new features in 2012, I am adding links back to Autodesk's website where they have already done the work :)

Revit Architecture 2012
Revit Structure 2012
Revit MEP 2012

Nice features, but still quite a few core features missing.
Back in 2009 when the ribbon was added I wrote a POST comparing Revit 2010 to the Delorian from Back to the Future.

"Another comparison could be respraying an old car without fixing the fundamental flaws, such as the smoking engine or failing brakes or heaven forbid...the flux capacitor.

So here is hoping that with this new flashy interface complete, the factory will now be free to focus on the fundamental wish list to get the engine, brakes and hopefully the flux capacitor working again."


I fear that this, to a degree is still apparent... But maybe the Delorean is the newer one that flies???

Looks good, works (in theory), but...still an old car
