Free Excitech Revit Toolkit - Coordinate Scheduling & Element Renumbering

Revit Coordinate Scheduling Tool

The FREE Excitech Revit Coordinate Scheduling application is a powerful tool for Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP that will enable users to automatically acquire precise X, Y and Z coordinates from certain Revit objects.

This allows users to more rapidly produce schedules of, for example, piling and services; as well as to publish coordinates for complex geometry across 3D space.

The coordinates are added to the objects element properties which will allow schedules to be generated and tags to be placed.

The application has been designed to publish X,Y and Z coordinates to selected object categories and store these within the objects instance properties.

To maintain the accuracy of the coordinates the Excitech Revit Coordinate Scheduling Tool has the following built-in checks which will prompt the user when performing one of the below operations.
  • Viewing Schedule Tables
  • Printing
  • Saving Documents
  • Saving As
  • Opening a document
  • Exporting a file
  • Closing Documents
  • Synchronising with the Central File

Element Renumber Utility - NEW for Revit 2013 Toolkit!

The new Element Renumber facility is an extremely useful new tool going beyond a limited discipline-specific solution.

This tool has the capability of renumbering any category in Revit and it can utilise room numbering information in this process. So for example you could renumber all doors sequentially through your ground floor.  For example, your model has room 1, 2 and 3, with 2 doors in each; one option would be to automatically number them 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2, 3-1, 3-2.
Another example use would be structural engineers renumbering piles automatically; or a building services engineer numbering lighting fixtures, the later could again include the room numbers if required.

You can also add filters, prefixes, suffixes, zero padding and much more.

In testing our customers have commented how useful this new functionality is in extracting that critical efficiency gain from your BIM system.

There's more information available on the Excitech website.
