If you follow the Autodesk release cycle at all, you will already know that Revit 2019 was released a couple of weeks ago. And if you haven’t already read about the new features, I would recommend checking out What’s new in Revit 2019. A few of the most notable features are:
- OR filters for View Filters
- Tabbed views and multi-monitor support
- Double-fill patterns
While I am eager to try out these new features, as a landscape architect, there is always an undercurrent of disappointment that accompanies each new Revit release that does not include any improvements for its site tools.
At this point I try to keep my expectations as low as possible, but I was interested to see the Revit Roadmap Update that came with the release of 2019. Of course, Autodesk likes to remind us that these ‘plans are not intended to be a promise or guarantee of future delivery of products[…]’
But down at the bottom, under the Connect category, there is a big hint that the Revit development team may finally be considering improving the gaping hole that exists between Civil 3D and Revit.
Finally, we are continuing to invest in improving how civil engineers and architects can collaborate better on the site design process to improve the sharing of information, support accuracy, and help reduce re-work.
And here is relevant matrix of features:
Just for reference, here is the legend for what each of these colors and symbols.
I am not entirely sure what ‘Accepted’ means. But there is a link at the bottom of the Roadmap page that directs you to the Revit Preview (beta testing) if you would like to provide feedback on these new features.

I’m surprised you’re not in the beta program to test this. It’s not the panacea you may wish for.
There is also rumor of Infraworks import to Revit:
Revit Preview is all under NDA, so I try not to comment too directly about these things, but I keep an eye on it. I am much more interested in C3D workflows to Revit than anything that is going on with Infraworks. Civil engineers actually document in C3D, so any progress in that direction is good news.
