    Vasari 2.5--edit in Perspective!

    Check out Vasari 2.5--http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Vasari/enu/TP25/Help/0000-New_in_P0

    New "Perspective View" allows full editing. Different from a "camera view"....

    Also direct face-manipulation, ala Sketchup.

    These two features alone are the best I've seen in years of trying to get die-hard SU users to use Revit.

    Hope these tools from Vasari make it into Revit soon.

    Yep. Very awesome. Was a bit disappointed to hear that the direct face manipulation still only applies to fairly planar faces, so if you loft a face through 4 profiles, you cant turn that in to a solid still... But its a step in the right direction.

      Yep...good progress. Let's see, it only has taken about 12 years, but at least we are getting there!

        It is exciting to see there is a 2.5 verison. I am playing with 2.1 and thought this will end by March 31. Now I have something to look forward to.

          I agree, the face extrude is a step in the right direction, but it's not really a step forward since you can only apply it to a face perpendicular to the top and bottom profile. So if you create a cube, you can't apply the face extrude on the top or bottom face. You can't split the face on these faces either, however this is a limitation in Revit too. Adding edges and profiles on th top and bottm face can't be done either. For now, extruding a split face through the create form button is more effective since it can extrude geometry on a non planer faces. If they can remove these limitations, then there will be no reason to use SU.

            Yes you can, in a way. Think of a form as having grain, like a piece of wood. Extrude from "bottom" to "top" and the "grain" runs vertically. You can add an edge along the "grain". Now turn a form on its side by extruding from front-to-back or left-to-right and the "grain" runs horizontally. Then you can add an edge to the "top" of the form, which is really the side, along the grain.

            Hope that helps!

              I know that workaround, but the same problem remains on the front and back face. I rather (or at least the SU users at the office) be able to ad edges on all faces regardless of the extrusion direction. Yes I know, SU has spoiled us. But it's also practical. If you want to create urban context with the proper roof, it's extremely easy to pick the existing cad lines, extrude the profile, ad an edge on the top face and pull the edge to create a hip roof. It would be also very nice if edges can connect or intersect with other edges.

                Yes-the extrude face tool still needs work to fully convince the SU users.

                But wow--editing in perspective! A dream come true. Finally. Let's hope this makes it into Revit CM environment soon.

                    It's available now at the Alive in the Labs site.
