For the past few years, I’ve done a series of posts describing what’s new and possible in the latest version of Revit and it’s Application Programming Interface (API). For the uninitiated, the API is the series of mechanisms that Autodesk provides to be able to drive or analyze Revit through programming.
2011 represents a watershed year in the ongoing development of the Revit API. Autodesk has taken the opportunity to re-work the API to better match how Revit works internally – and at the same time to do some amazing new things.
Over the following series of posts, I hope to cover topics such as:
- Upgrading Existing Revit API commands/applications
- New Deployment Methods
- The New UI vs. Database split.
- New Ribbon Capabilities
- Element Iteration Changes
- Ooh-ooh Pick Me! New Selection Methods
- Dynamic Model Update
- Event Model Changes
- RevitLookup: The New RevitMgdDbg
- Revit AddIn Manager: Almost Edit & Continue
- What’s New in Element Creation?
- Exceptional Stuff
- What Kinds of Applications are Possible Now?
- And More…
