What's New in Autodesk Revit 2013 – It's a Material World! - Enhanced Properties for Building Performance Analysis

Autodesk Revit 2013 now provides the ability to add and modify the thermal properties of walls, floor, roofs, and windows in order to facilitate more integrated building performance analysis, heating and cooling load calculations and gbXML support. 

These improvements: 
  • Allow for a single customizable deployment and a single content library. 
  • Support and encourage multi-discipline workflows. 
  • Give the user the ability to assign thermal and structural properties.
  • Permit the thermal and structural properties to gbXML. 

Don’t forget to look through other great features our Ideate Technical Team has found in the new 2013 releases for Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, Revit MEP, Civil 3D, AutoCAD, AutoCAD MEP, Navisworks and more: ideateinc.com/2013
