What's Hot in Revit Add-ons for December 2015 - March 2016

I was a little surprised by by how long it's been since it put up one of these "monthly" posts. Suffice to say, things have been a little busy in my world lately.

Since it has been so long, I've included nearly a dozen add-in related posts that performed the highest over the past 4 months.

Statistically, the Kubity Exporter was the clear high performer with a fair drop off between it and the second highest charting post. From there, the next ten were grouped together relatively closely. The relative stats are reflected in the form of orange pie charts to the right of the product logos.
