OK, the cuffs are finally off... we're allowed to talk about the Revit 2008 API...
There's so much that's new, I'm going to tackle it in a few different postings, just to spread things out a little bit.
Until now, most developers would have characterized the Revit API as "immature" - but Autodesk has taken a variety of important steps to change my view of the API in this release. The door has been opened for Revit to perform a wide variety of new, more interesting tasks.
Some of the enhancements to the Revit API that I'll cover include:
- Interactive Element Pick/Select
- DWG/DWF/Image Import/Export
- Working at the Application Level
- Printing and Saving
- New Element Creation
- Elements Promoted to concrete classes
- More access to parameter and other data within elements
Anyone who has developed Revit applications or has been thinking about it should be excited at all of the new capabilities to work with in Revit 2008...
