Often the Revit product team is asked how the Revit product line takes advantage of multiple processors and the workstation GPU, so we thought we'd provide a list for your reference, and a video that shows a new feature of Revit 2016 that uses multiple processors to accelerate model navigation to speeds comparable to the Navisworks 2016 model.
There is a new analysis type available in the Structural Analysis for Revit service. This is a simplified analysis which by deducing the flow paths of loads determines how the vertical loads are being transmitted from the top of the model to the foundation. This feature helps engineers quickly determine structural loads and reactions without the finite element method (FEM) and leverage them during the design stage. Watch the video:
In the 2016 version there are some new features which improve user productivity. The selection feature enables you to preview elements before you actually select them. The Structural Verification dialog enables you to identify and locate errors in the model more clearly.
Right now when you create rebar schedules, you have the possibility to list elements per member. This feature improves rebar documentation and supports better productivity for rebar detailing to enable proper quantification.
