MSsync Add-in for Autodesk Revit - Manage Parameters in Microsoft Excel

From comes the MLsync add-in.

MLsync is a powerful Autodesk® Revit® add-in which enables you to export parameter and property data from your Revit® project model to an external file in tabular format, process the data in Microsoft® Excel®, and then import the information back into Revit and instantly realize changes. Aside from simply extracting common data from the building model, MLsync also has the ability to create informational associations between Elements contained in separate projects, by recognizing and processing embedded Revit Links. With the power of MLsync, your ability to effectively manage and leverage model data is extended far beyond the native capabilities of Autodesk Revit,providing the means to more seriously engage the ”I” portion of   Building Information Modeling (BIM).

MLsync2013Trial is a free evaluation version of the Addin, compatible with Autodesk Revit 2013. This trial version is fully-functional, but limited to 20 rows of Microsoft Excel output, for each selected Revit Category, within each selected Revit Document.

MLsync contains two core commands: MLsync Export and MLsync Import.

MLsync Export is the command to define a Revit data export scenario, and execute the extraction to Microsoft Excel.

MLsync Import is the command to bring the Microsoft Excel data back into Autodesk Revit, after it has been processed.

MLsync Excel is the resultant Microsoft Excel Workbook that MLsync Export creates. It is specially-formatted to preserve the integrity of the MLsync data, while allowing controlled edits and processing.
