  • In-built PDF support
  • Automatic File Naming
  • Predefined Output Locations
  • Customisable, automatically generated Word Transmittals
  • Aconex Integration (NEW!)

Quality Assurance


Traditionally, issuing of drawings is a process prone to human error. A boring and repetitive process that requires accuracy and precision in terms of ensuring files are named correctly, revision numbers are consistent and correct through the file names, titleblocks, and transmittal. Xrev transmit utilises all information directly from the Revit sheets themselves to populate the file name and transmittal ensuring consistency and correctness!

Easy Installation & Setup


All of these fantastic features are delivered through a very simple installation and setup process. Don't go through a painful process of having to setup special shared parameters, or trying to interpret complicated settings windows for every project. Xrev transmit has been built to maximise the in-built features of Revit such as the existing Revisioning toolset and all the inbuilt parameters for Revit Sheets and Project Information. Create company defaults and reuse them or use other projects as templates Xrev transmit does everything it can to avoid entering the same information more than once.

What does this mean?

Ease of use, quickly adapted for new projects, increased productivity!
