Revit 2025 New Features for Architecture

Mike MasseyApril 10th, 2024

Autodesk has released Revit 2025, and it is full of new features that will enhance your productivity. I am excited to share some of my top 5 new features. So, without further delay, let's dive into my top 5!


#1 - SHEET COLLECTIONS Users can now create Sheet Collections to assist in organizing the sheets in the project. Users can create as many Sheet Collections as needed and sheets can be grouped by placing sheets into the Sheet Collections. There are many reasons that this new functionality could be helpful. Sheets Collections can be made for phases of a project, for different disciplines, and for issue sets, just to name a few.


Sheet Collections uses a new sheet instant parameter that can be used in schedules to filter out the sheets to be included in the schedule. There is also a built-in filter when Exporting/Printing that will allow you to print an entire Sheet Collection.

One of the biggest advantages of using Sheet Collections is the ability to have duplicate Sheet Numbers. In prior releases, you were not able to have two sheets with the same sheet number. Now, as long as the sheets are in different Sheet Collections, you can have duplicate numbers. This solves many problems that users have faced in prior releases.



There are some new options when modeling walls that are adjacent to each other. By default, if two walls are adjacent to each other, they remain two separate walls. If one moves, the other does not move with it, if an opening is placed in one wall, it only cuts the one wall that it is placed in. Users would have to join the walls together using the Join command to get them to act as a single wall. Now, in 2025, users have the option to Join or Join/Lock walls together as they are modeled. This will save time and steps when modeling adjacent walls.

#3 – TOPOSOLID ENHANCEMENTS The Toposolid command was introduced last year in Revit 2024. This year, some nice enhancements have been added to assist in creating and modifying Toposolids.

The first is the Excavate tool. This can be used to excavate the Toposolid for your modeling using Floors, roofs, or toposolid elements. In previous releases, a building pad had to be used to cut the topography. This eliminates the need for a building pad, as floors can be used instead. The cubic volume of the excavate will automatically be listed in the Properties Palette. The cubic volume can also be used in schedules.


Next is the improvement to using a Shaft Opening to cut into a Toposolid. In previous versions, shaft openings would cut through the entire toposolid element. Now, the bottom of the shaft is respected in relation to its position within the toposolid. Users can now use shaft elements in conjunction with toposolids and adjust the bottom of the shaft to model conditions without the shaft element cutting all the way through the top solid element.


Lastly, there have been improvements to hosting elements to a toposolid when there are cuts in it. Prior to 2025, hosted elements, such as railings or planting elements, would not attach to the surface of a cut toposolid. Now, hosted elements will recognize the cut surface as a host.


#4 – MULTIPLE ALIGNMENT Multiple Alignment for annotation is a huge improvement to assist in adding notes to your project. Users can now align and evenly distribute multiple keynotes, text notes, or tags. This will speed up the time it takes to document our projects. New aliment buttons are on the ribbon menu when multiple annotation elements are selected.



#5 – COORDINATION MODEL CHANGES You can now check changes between two versions of a linked coordination model from Autodesk Docs using the Coordination Model Changes feature anytime after linking a RVT or DWG coordination model. The palette displays an overview of the added, modified, or deleted objects, which are highlighted on the model too. Users can filter the categories to only show added, modified, or deleted objects by de-selecting the categories that you do not want to display.
