One of my favorite blog topics of the year is here - the "What's New" posts, describing the new capabilities of the API (application programming interface) for Revit.
In this series of posts, I'll try to lay out both what's new and what it might mean for you.
Since introducing a small .NET API in Revit 8, the API has doubled in size for each release. Obviously, that's not sustainable the bigger the API gets - and while I'm not sure of the "actual" size increase of the 2010 release, I can say that it's impressive in both size and thoughtfulness.
There is so much new, that we will break up the posts as follows
- General Changes in 2010
- User Interface
- Finally Families!
- Element Creation
- Element Enhancements
- Spatial Awareness
- Import and Export
- MEP Enhancements
- Geometry Enhancements
- What's Still Missing?
Whew! Even breaking it up into this many pieces, these are still going to be some large topics. I'd better get started.
