These demos were part of a February 6th 2009 press webcast. The first demo clip highlights the new massing environment for conceptual design in Revit Architecture 2010. The second clip shows an Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 model exported to 3ds Max Design to analyze natural light intensity early in the design phase. Check it out. You can find some more reviews at AEC Bytes.

According to a press release at the Autodesk website these are the highligts of the update:

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 software (BIM for architects and designers) enables customers to more accurately capture early design concepts with improved conceptual design functionality via:

  • An intuitive conceptual design workspace to create complex geometry more easily.
  • A new user interface (UI) that works the way designers think, providing a smoother and more continuous design workflow.
  • Improved interoperability with programs such as AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 software, Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2010 software and Autodesk Inventor 2010 software.
