I was recently asked about the other versions of Revit (oddly named “flavors”). Revit used to come in Architecture, MEP and Structure. Then, Autodesk put them all together in a single product called Revit One (that may have actually been the pre-release name), which include all three products in one. Eventually, the product was just called Revit.
The firm that I work for customize how Revit appears to users to just show the Architecture features. I got a question recently by a new hire to the firm I work for asking how to reveal the other versions. The steps below explain how to do it:
- Click the Revit application button (otherwise known as, “the big R” in the top-left corner), and then click the Options button.
- Next, click the User Interface option to the left and, to the right, you select the Structure, System tab: mechanical tools, System tab: electrical tools and/or System tab: piping tools (Note: once you activate the first box, there are sub-tools that you can activate as well. Some of which show up on the Annotate tab, and the rest of which show up on the Analyze tab).
- Then, click the OK button.
The tabs you selected will now show up.
