It’s that time of year! Revit 2022 has been released, and the product management team is excited to highlight the many ways that your feedback and needs have translated into some major enhancements and new features for communicating design intent. There are so many updates and enhancements for architects in this release that we decided to introduce them in three installments. This is Part 1 — Modeling, Documentation, and Production.

In Revit 2022, dozens of enhancements address more than 8,000 votes from Revit Ideas to help you model, document, and ultimately design better buildings.

You’ll find updates big and small—ranging from increased flexibility with revision numbering, to modeling updates for walls, to enhancements for visualization—all working together to ease pain points, reduce the need for workarounds, and improve your daily use of Revit.

Customize Your Revision Numbering

Revision numbering can vary depending on project complexity, delivery method, location, and other requirements. Revit 2022 opens up a world of possibilities, enabling greater flexibility with revision numbering that does not require following a linear alphanumeric or numeric sequence.

“Whatever method you prefer to use for doing revisions in your office, Revit can now accommodate it,” says Sasha Crotty, Senior Product Manager for Revit Platform and Services.

This update is especially significant for users in locations where adherence to global, national, or local standards like ISO 19650, requires specific letters or characters in revision formatting.

Regardless of your location, if you’re working on a large, complex project that has different issuances for distinct regulatory agencies, for example, custom suffixes or prefixes can be implemented that can help distinguish different packages. It’s ideal for projects that have fast-track packages or multiple  issuances happening in parallel.

Improved Tagging & Spot Slope Elevations on Ramps

Other key features aiding in documentation are what Harlan Brumm, Senior Product Manager for Revit, refers to as “small, consistency fixing, like putting spot slope elevations on ramps and tagging elements like curtain wall mullions.”
