Revit 2025 Revealed: Delving into the Latest Innovations

Introduction to Revit 2025

Revit has long been synonymous with innovation in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) industry. In its latest iteration, Revit 2025 continues this tradition by offering cutting-edge solutions to address the evolving needs of design professionals. With an intuitive interface and powerful tools, Revit 2025 empowers users to create stunning designs with ease.

Explore the latest additions and enhancements in Autodesk Revit’s newest release. Dive into the details below to learn more about the technical aspects of these updates.

2025 Release Highlights:

Toposolid Enhancements:

Now enjoy enhanced tools and functionality tailored to work seamlessly with toposolid elements within your models, based on community suggestions.

In Revit 2024

You have to cut toposolids with voids. Excavation data is inaccurate.

In Revit 2025

When a toposolid is selected, you can “excavate” it with a floor, building pad, roof, and toposolid.

CONVERTING TOPOSURFACES TO TOPOSOLIDS NOW INCLUDES BUILDING PADS

In Revit 2024

When bringing an older file that includes toposurfaces into Revit 2024, you could upgrade the toposurface into a toposolid. However, the building pads were ignored.

In Revit 2025

When converting a toposurface into a toposolid, building pads will now be included.

PLACE FAMILIES ON CUT TOPOSOLIDS

In Revit 2024

When placing a family on a cut toposolid, the family is… randomly placed? It doesn’t recognize the faces that have been cut from the toposolid.

In Revit 2025

Face-based families properly recognize faces of cut toposolids. That means you can place trees in holes.

SHAFT OPENING ENHANCEMENT FOR TOPOSOLIDS

In Revit 2024

 If a shaft touches a toposolid, the entire toposolid is cut. Even if the bottom of the shaft is above the bottom of the toposolid.

In Revit 2025

Shaft now properly works on toposolids. They will cut to the bottom of the shaft instead of the entire toposolid.

Arrays of 1 and 0 in Families:

Flexibly manipulate both linear and radial arrays to values of 1 or 0 directly within the Family Editor.

In Revit 2024

 In Revit families, arrays of 0 or 1 elements break. To solve the issue, you have to use annoying workarounds with formulas.

In Revit 2025

You can now create an array of 0 or 1 elements! The family will not break. In the family editor, you will see a preview in gray line of the 1st and 2nd elements if the array is 0 or 1, but they’ll be invisible once loaded in the project.

Limitations: This doesn’t work when creating an array inside of a project. It only works in families.

Background Export to PDF:

Run PDF exports in the background while continuing to work on your model, ensuring uninterrupted productivity.

In Revit 2024

when exporting a PDF from Revit, your Revit session would need to complete the PDF export process before you could continue working.

In Revit 2025

 PDF export process can be run as a background process, allowing you to continue working on your model while the export process completes.

Sheet Collections:

Organize sheets in your model into flexible groupings using the Sheet Collections feature, responding to community feedback.

In Revit 2024

 Sheets cannot have the same number. To organize sheets together in the project browser, you have to use classification parameters

In Revit 2025

You can now create a new “collection” of sheets. This is similar to creating an organization parameter with one bonus feature. You can have sheets with the same number!

Multiple Alignment:

Align and distribute multiple keynotes, text notes, and tags effortlessly for improved precision.

In Revit 2024

 To align annotation elements such as text, tags, and keynotes, you have to move them manually.

In Revit 2025

When you select multiple annotation elements (text, tags, keynotes), you will see align options in the contextual tab. In this example, we quickly align the text, tag, and keynote to the left.

Limitations: These features only work with annotation elements. You cannot use them with 3D elements such as walls or lines.

ROOM PERIMETER INCLUDES INNER LOOPS

In Revit 2024

 Room perimeter doesn’t include inner loops.

In Revit 2025

If the room has an inner loop, it will be added to the perimeter value.

Limitations: These features only work with annotation elements. You cannot use them with 3D elements such as walls or lines.

Create Walls with Auto Join and Lock:

Streamline your modeling process by automatically joining newly created architectural walls with adjacent walls, or join and lock them together for efficiency, as suggested by the community.

In Revit 2024

If you have multiple walls next to one another, you have to manually join them to ensure openings will cut all walls. Also, only one wall is moved by default.

In Revit 2025

When creating a wall, you’ll see these “Auto Join” and “Auto Join & Lock” options in the ribbon.

ACTIVATE END WRAP

Streamline your modeling process by automatically joining newly created architectural walls with adjacent walls, or join and lock them together for efficiency, as suggested by the community.

In Revit 2024

Wall wrap settings are set in the type properties.

In Revit 2025

When wrapping is activated for the wall in the type properties, you have access to an icon that activate/deactivate the wrapping for one of the end.

Limitations: Not available for inserts wrapping.

MULTIPLE LOOP MULLION PROFILES

Streamline your modeling process by automatically joining newly created architectural walls with adjacent walls, or join and lock them together for efficiency, as suggested by the community.

In Revit 2024

Profile for mullions can only contain a single loop.

In Revit 2025

Profiles for mullions can include multiple loops. This means you can have a thickness value inside the mullion, which was previously impossible.

That’s not all! Let’s delve into some additional notable features:

  • IFC Export Category Mapping Templates:
    • Customize Revit category mapping for IFC exports using templates tailored to your specific needs.
  • Coordination Model Changes:
    • Easily track changes between two versions of a linked coordination model from Autodesk Docs, empowering better collaboration throughout the project lifecycle.
  • Edit Part Type Geometry (MEP Fabrication Data Manager – Tech Preview):
    • Edit product-listed part geometry directly in the Fabrication Data Manager Parts Editor.
  • Analytical Duct and Pipe Segments:
    • Inspect and visualize pressure drop and flow data in design and fabrication networks with exposed analytical segments.

These are just a glimpse of the exciting updates in Revit 2025. Dive deeper to uncover more enhancements and refinements designed to elevate your workflow and project outcomes.
