    Good write-up by David as always. Finally we have 3D tagging, and the ability to lock 3D views

    Yep, it is a good first step along the path to full 3d tagging.

    As it stands at the moment, you can tag most model elements but not materials nor rooms.

    I think Autodesk has shifted the groundbreaking features to it's subscription and labs releases. Revit server, Nucleus, solar radiation, structural tools, wind rose analysis tools, wood framing tools are just a few examples of these post release features.

    So while this new release may be disappointing to some, it wouldn't surprise me to see a new stair and site tools in the upcoming subscription package which will be available be in a few months from now. Lets keep our finger crossed.

    I do have to agree with David that, while these new features are great, Autodesk needs to focus on the core modeling tools of Revit. That is the reason why people use an architectural modeler like Revit in the first place. Knocking out a decent 3d stairs is always more important for an end user than ambient occlusion.

    Wow nice release Create Parts tool looks incredible. Can you hide some of the layers? So you can see only the core ? We can have concrete plans from compoded walls? In 3d too? I wonder if this will change the way I work now, becouse I`m used to draw 3 walls for a real one (interior part/core part/exterior part). Maybe this tool can save us from so many clicks Are the areas correct per layer after editing? Anybody have more details about this Create Parts tool? I`m working on walls for the template so it`s good to know what strategy to apply

    And the Assambly thing. Details about it anybody ?

    This day is so cute

    The problem is, that group doesnt understand what they actually need. Better site and topo tools? They NEEDED to create the Form Editor before that could even happen. The 2.5 day Workplane based modeler they had prior wasnt going to cut it. Now that the form editor is pretty legit, look how fast Eagle Point jumped on it. Sure, no one has ever accused Autodesk of being FAST, but they needed these releases first.

    Stairs and Railings, i would venture, also required a lot of infrastructure and backbone, given the amount of *assumptions* the tool had to make before.

    As for text tools, i hope they never waste another development dollar on them. Id rather see more robust formatting for SMART annotations, than for that garbage.

    It is therefore unfortunate that after 3 releases Autodesk hasn't upgraded the family editor as they did with the massing families in 2010. It would be difficult to develop a better stair tool on the current platform unless they use the mass family like Eagle Point.

    I think reporting parameters were invented in 2011 release so it`s an upgrade to family editor Do they upgraded them in 2012?
    NDA it`s still available for the beta testers users? If yes, why they give us just generic infomations? I`m loosing money here by google-ing all day

    I agree with Twiceroadsfool that we don't really need to waste time on text tools... However better EXCEL-like schedules would be nice and really important for many of us... Or a report designer like many database programs have... After all Revit is a database, right?
    What I can't understand, is how a new,smaller company can create a really useful app like "Siteworks for Revit" and Autodesk can't improve the existing tools... Adesk has bought so many other apps, I think we should see something like siteworks inside Revit 2012....
    I don't understand how MAX gets 100 new features every year with half the subscription cost!!!
