BIMcollab® BCF Manager for Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Navisworks® v5.2

From the Autodesk App Store:

The BCF Managers by KUBUS add BIMcollab® connectivity as well as BCF file support to Autodesk® Revit®. It provides the ability to create and modify issues and communicate these through BIMcollab or via BCF files (supports version 1.0 and 2.x) directly from within Revit.

Complete Issue Management Ecosystem 

The BCF Managers are available for other popular BIM tools such as Navisworks, ARCHICAD, Solibri Model Checker, Tekla Structures and simplebim. Together with our web application, these form the BIMcollab® issue management ecosystem which provides an effective way to communicate BIM issues and thereby providing a more efficient workflow.

BCF files support is also included for working with BIM applications which support BCF natively such as Tekla BIMsight, DDS, MagiCAD and many more.

Issues will contain title, description, status, who's responsible, recommendations or suggestions, and whether a resolution has been implemented. Using BIMcollab® will additionally allow you to add area information, milestones, deadlines as well as implement a formal approval process.

All issues can contain viewpoints with camera position and relevant objects. This allows you to zoom-to the issue-location, highlighting the problematic components in whatever BIM-tool you are.

Auto Numbering v2.0

From the Autodesk App Store:

Digitteck® AutoNumbering™

(App presentation:

Wasted time in the workplace has become a hot topic of discussion, and businesses are consistently varying to shape their workforce into a well-oiled maximum efficiency machine.

Many organizations are missing opportunities to automate business processes that can save their employees’ time and boost productivity.

With AutoNumbering you will save time by having the app doing the numbering job for you.

You have multiple options available to you for selecting the type of element you target for renumbering. You can choose to renumber Doors/Windows/Rooms or manually select the Family and Family Type.

You can choose between 3 renumbering algorithms:
  • Straight - this algorithm uses one direction (line). For each item in the filtered selection, it determines it's projection on this line. The elements are renumbered from one side of the line or the other. To read more about this check the Algorithm For Strategy Straight page in the help file.
  • Straight with strips -  this algorithm uses the same logic as the strategy straight. The points are projected on the direction for numbering. But instead of using only one line, a set of lines are created, elements are grouped inside these lines are groups are treated separately.
  • By Curve - this algorithm allows you to define multiple paths that will guide the numbering process. The algorithm will determine which elements correspond to which path (closest). Then it will project the elements to their corresponding path. The numbering is made by following the curve from start to end. Read more in the help file.
