Autodesk announced Revit Sunrise this morning. This is a preview release of Revit showing some of the features in development for Architecture, Structure and MEP. Like Revit Sundial last year, this is provided as a way for Autodesk to validate the next release and generate some advanced buzz.

Note: Not all of these features are guaranteed to be available in the next commercial release, however Autodesk wants your feedback in the Public Beta. This preview release is a hosted solution, which works as a fantastic way to review software in a non-destructive way. You install the client software without affecting your current Revit environment or occupying very much space on your computer – the installer would fit on a 1.4Mb floppy disk, if you remember what those are. The custom Citrix client requires only your Autodesk A360 login and works on any PC with an internet connection. So go kick the tires.

I’m really excited about the introduction of Global parameters, which have been a feature request for a very long time.
