  • MEP Fabrication Detailing: MEP contractors and detailers can create fabrication-ready models inside Revit using content from the Autodesk Fabrication products (Autodesk® Fabrication CADmep™, Autodesk® Fabrication ESTmep™, and Autodesk® Fabrication CAMduct™) for a more coordinated model.
  • Reinforcement Detailing IMPROVED: Model 3D concrete reinforcement in an advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) environment. Create detailed and more accurate reinforcement designs. Produce reinforcement shop drawing documentation with rebar schedules.
  • Linking with Steel Detailing: Use a detailed Revit model to generate documents for fabrication. Interoperability between Revit and Autodesk® Advance Steel helps provide a seamless BIM workflow from steel design to fabrication.whatsnewrevit2016
