View Full Version : Revit Systems
Has anyone heard about Revit Systems yet? It appears we are going to get an MEP program as a nother add on like structures.

Revit systems will be bundled with ABS in release 1.
In its R1 form it is being positioned more as a design tool than a full blown solution. From what I've seen, on the design and calculation side of things, the tools available for mecahnical and electrical engineers will be huge time savers . If Revit Structures is any indication the development will be rapid and should round out the Revit family really well.
Can't wait to get into my first whole building modeled in Revit from beginning to end.

MEP guys around where I am (Washington, DC) are chomping at the bit to be able to use it. Seems like it's going to be fabulous.

I saw a demo recently and even the tiny bits I saw were awesome. I heard that the release is getting pushed back to May.

I have only seen the screen shots on the Autodesk web site but I can't wait to sit down and play with it. With the changes to rooms the amount of data that will be easily be able to schedule and work with will be huge. Next week I am leaving to go work for an electrical manufacturer so unfortunately it will come too late for me to use it on an actual project.

I attended a seminar last Thursday and they said it shipped last Wednesday. That was April 26.

Our MEP consultants have it in hand so it has definetly been released, it's just not downloadable yet.

Systems is awesome, as long as you get the Revit Building model from the architect, otherwise you the MEP firm need to build a Revit Building model to take full advantage of the tools in Revit Systems. A good rule is if you have a Revit Building model, use Systems, no Revit Building model, use ABS. This is why Autodesk is only selling Systems with ABS.

From personal experience i can aknowledge what you have heard, as a tester i have been using the software for about a year and the only major mechanical drawbacks are with plumbing systems as this wasnt addressed in the first release. I do not know what autodesk has planned for plumbing systems but i imagine it will come in a later release.
Looking forward to seing the final release and will receive my cd in a few days.....Saved us major time even in its infancy on construction documents.

Revit Systems 1.0 only comes bundled with ABS. ABS is not downloadable. I would expect when Revit Systems begins to be sold on it's own (2.0?) that it will be downloadable.

Might want to contact your reseller to get a copy :D This program absolutely rocks.
