The latest Revit news from reviting.net
If you are having troubles getting Revit 2010 Update 1, here is a direct download link.
There are many enhancements including updates to the API.
Dynamic legends are now possible within Revit, with the aid of a new (or at least new to me) extension by Tools for Revit.
This is a long standing feature request of mine, and in my opinion should come out of the box. This extension is Revit 2010 compatible.
Please visit the following link and watch the demonstration videos.
Those of you on Autodesk Subscription have probably noticed the shiny new box that arrived on your desk recently. So what's in this new Revit Architecture Suite box?
Well as far as Revit goes - It's the same as what you're probably using already. I assume it will be the latest build of Revit, but that can be obtained from Autodesk (currently at Web Update #2)
AutoCAD is still provided in the box, but you probably don't use that much, right? So what is AutoCAD Architecture (formerly Architectural Desktop)?
Some new Revit extensions have been made available via the Autodesk Subscription Center.Â
RevitÂ® Extensions are a series of easy-to-use applications that extend the capabilities of RevitÂ® Architecture 2009 software in key areas, including modeling, coordination, and documentation. Specifically, the extensions provided in this executable file are: Grid Generator, Freeze Drawings, Compare Models, Text Generator, Elements Positioning, and Microsoft ExcelÂ®-based Model Generation. "
The file installs the Revit Extensions for Revit Architecture 2009. It also includes the Extensions Engine, a platform that hosts each Extension within Revit Architecture 2009.
Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP will be released on April 15, according to this post at Revit3D/BIMBoom Blog
Here are a few more links detailing various new Revit features since my previous Revit 2009 post:

Hopefully we can build a large library of useful, high quality, free Revit content.
Thanks for testing!
Press Release from Autodesk regarding the Revit 2009 Suite of applications:
Some potentially extremely exciting features include:
The Google Trends tool can provide an interesting insight into the changes and constants in user search patterns. I have plugged in three of the main BIM solutions (that come to mind) to see the results:
What useful information can we gather from this graph?
While most of what we can extrapolate from this graph is subjective; it is fairly coarse, there are no numerical values associated with the y-axis (search volume); we can see a steady increase in the number of people searching for Revit. The other two solutions have been established in the industry for some time before Revit entered the market, and we see a fairly consistent search volume, with a slight decline for Microstation.
What do Search Volumes Mean?
