Generative Design 21.16.10 for Revit 2021

With Generative Design in Revit, you can leverage computing power to quickly generate and explore alternatives to a design problem.

In a generative design process, you specify the goals, constraints, and inputs. Then you leverage the power of the computer to generate lots of design alternatives quickly and to evaluate these alternatives against the defined goals. The result is a set of alternatives that help you meet your design goals.

Improvements and Enhancements

This update improves how Generative Design stores all study types. User can now store study types in multiple folders, including local folders and mapped network drives.

In Dynamo for Revit, a new set of tools streamlines and simplifies the creation and update process for graphs that will be used as Generative Design study types. Improved support for Dynamo graph Dependencies.

In Dynamo, the Export for Generative Design command has been replaced by a Create Study Type (or Update Study Type) button on the Study Type tab.

Sample study types are now read-only.
