Revit Wishlist

I don't think we have one of these threads, have we?

Anyway, someone made a thread earlier today, and it got me thinking, there are soooo many things that Autodesk could do in future releases of Revit, that would make all our lives easier. Some would be relatively easy to fix/add while others would be a lot more complicated. Anyway, here's two simple ones for starters:

1: An automatic stop piece at the end of a gutter

2: The ability to have a railing hosted by a toposurface. It would be really handy for creating fences, as not all fences are level. Most usually follow the line of the terrain.

What else would people like to see introduced to future releases? Also, this might be a good place for people to post their workarounds to these limitations.

Ian, maybe you could pin this thread, and Autodesk might find it and consider some of the proposals :D

Great idea Neal,

This topic is now a "Sticky"- so it'll remain at the top of the topic list.

Keep those Revit Wishes coming!

Regards,
Ian

Hedges:-

I'd like to see a basic hedge element that hosts itself to toposurfaces. This would save me from having to fudge it with grass-coloured walls!

Yep. That's another one I missed out on.

I'd like to see the "spherical rendering" option brought back in.. I used this a lot in the earlier releases of Revit

A future phase option. Seriously. I mean how hard can it be, Autodesk?

Hi Neal,

Can you explain what you mean by "future phase option"?

Cheers,
Ian

Basically, I mean it exactly as it says. We can have "existing", "proposed" and "temporary". But there's no option for "future". I know there's a few workarounds for it, but I would have thought a fully functional future phase would be a good idea.

Sorry Neal, I'm still lost as to "no option for the future". You can have an infinite number of phases- in the past, or in the future. And obviously just one "present" phase to represent the hear and now.

But for a future phase, you just add in a new phase after the proposed phase- in the Phases control panel.

For example, we are currently undertaking a project for a new Sports Hall. We have an existing phase, a proposed phase and a Future phase. The future phase shows a "Phase 2" expansion of the proposed sports hall.

How do you go about creating a future phase?
