Collapse and Expand The Entire Project Browser

In the latest update, new right click menu options have been added, allowing you to easily expand or collapse information in the project browser all at once or just the selected item in the tree.

Remember The Last Location of Revit Families

In addition to user interface improvements, this new feature remembers the last location of previously loaded families, making it easier to find where your families are stored.

Visibility and Graphics Overrides on MEP Fabrication Elements

MEP engineers haven’t been forgotten with the 2018.2 update. You can now colour code MEP Fabrication elements by selecting a solid surface pattern in the view settings.

Brand New Precast Content 

For structural engineers you can now take advantage of new precast content such as beams, columns and isolated foundations, allowing you to create structures more efficiently.
