Revit Structure 2014 – Concrete Join Order

Over the next few weeks I shall be showcasing some of the new features within Revit Structure 2014 and some of the platform enhancements of Revit 2014. One of the key new tools is the ability to change the join order of concrete elements.

I always found it very annoying when the slab took priority over the columns, the main reason was that when you produce a graphical column schedule the columns appeared broken at each floor! You can now finally choose your intended join order.

Below are two images showing the two possible results based on the Switched Join Order.

Join Order 1 Join Order 2 Graphical Column Schedule

You can now also see that the graphical column schedule is displaying correctly, of course, this was only an issue with concrete members.
