- [Instructor] Well another year, and another user interface update. This one's pretty awesome though. In this video, I'd like to take a look at what is changed only in the user interface. Of course, throughout the rest of the course, I'll make sure you know when we hit a topic that's been enhanced in terms of functionality. Let's open Revit 2019. The first thing I want to look at is Project Open. Browse somewhere to where you're keeping Revit models. And if I select this model, notice that it gives you the year. Go to that model it gives you the year.
Then when you get to an old one, you know to back off of it. I think that's pretty cool. I'm just going to open any model. The first thing that catches my eye is this. Tabs. If I go to Level One Structure Plan, Level Two, notice that we have tabs now which is pretty awesome. You can just drag one over if you want. Oh it's really cool if I drag this over to the end and down, I can drag this to another monitor.
That's a huge enhancement. Of course we can go fullscreen right with this view, which is kind of neat too. I'll be doin' that a lot through this course. I'm going to close out of here. Also with this comes an enhancement to the view tab. Notice now we have tab views and tile views. If we go to tile views, it's kind of the same thing, where you still have the tab. And of course you can always switch 'em over, or drag it onto another screen if you want. Again, pretty cool. You can maximize it.
Or it can restore down. Now if I want to just plant it back, all I have to do is hover over the tabs and it goes back in. Next thing I want to show you is enhancement to the fill patterns. So I'm going to come down here and just draw a round wall. Let's go to Structure, Wall. Let's click on the Circle button. And I'm just going to draw a wall like this. Hit Escape a few times.
Select your wall. Click Edit Type. Now for structure, click Edit. For the material, let's click into By Category. Click the Browser button. And down here I'm going to make a new material. I'm going to right click and rename it. I'll just call it Funny Concrete. Now in Funny Concrete, for my surface pattern, my foreground I want to make diagonal crosshatch.
The background I want to make concrete. Hit Okay. Hit Apply. Hit Okay. Hit Okay. Hit Okay one more time. Now let's go to our south elevation. I'm going to zoom in on my funny concrete wall. Check that out. Now that we're lookin' at the wall, it's always been impossible to dimension a round wall. Well not anymore. Click your Align Dimension button.
Look at what's goin' on here. That's a huge enhancement. It's been a long time comin'. Let's go to a 3-D view. One thing we can do here I'm not sure if I like or not. Scroll down the Properties until you find Projection Mode. Instead of Orthographic, switch it to Perspective. Now it can be in perspective view. That's kind of neat.
I'm going to change it back 'cause it's botherin' me. Orthographic, click Apply. Now we're in. One more thing I want to show you. Remember when we used to have to right click and rename? Well now you can just click it again and you can rename it that way. Seems like a small enhancement, but I like it a lot. So yeah, I think we'll be sayin' 2019 was a good year for the user interface.
You can dive into a specific trade, or take the entire course to learn about all aspects of the vast Revit MEP ecosystem. Upon completion, you'll know how to create basic floor plans, design electric circuits and lighting systems, tackle a mechanical project, create plumbing plans, design sprinkler systems, and document your designs for construction and fabrication.
