Weekly Roundup – Special Edition – What’s New in Revit 2021

This is a Special Edition of the Weekly Roundup, focused solely on What’s New with Revit 2021


It’s that time of year again, the latest version of Revit has launched: Revit 2021. It has been a few weeks since the April 8th, 2020 launch date and there have been lots of posts about what’s new. This will be your one-stop location for all the posts, podcasts and videos about the good, bad and ugly for Revit 2021 from all your favourite BIM friends!

As you might you might imagine with a mature product like Revit (turned 20 on April 5th, 2020) that the “WOW” features in new releases would start to be fewer and further between. While this is true with Revit, luckily it’s nowhere near the lack of new features as Navisworks… but that’s for a different blog.

There are some cool features that came out with Revit 2021, and here are my quick look top 3

1 ) PDF & Image Linking, maybe not as “sexy” as slanted walls or generative design but super practical.

2) The Inclusion of Dynamo 2.5 as the OOTB Dynamo version in Revit 2021.

3) Tag rotation with elements – Finally we can have door tags rotated on the same angle as our doors.

Of course, there was the introduction of many other features in Revit 2021, for all those and more enjoy the posts, podcasts, videos and even tweets below.
