BIM Helper Tools for Revit
The application consists of several modules, which can be obtained separately.
Batch print enables you to send various sheets to multiple printers to create and maintain print profiles, apply these profiles to multiple sheets and stores these as selection sets.
Element data manager manage element selection sets, store these sets in the current project/view. Export element data, import element data file from excel file, to update parameter values.
Parameter editor enables you to create, modify, and delete (shared) family parameters, in batch mode. Also the actions performed on families can be saved in an .xml format so they can be applied again to a different set of families at a different time. It is a very powerful tool for companies who build their own content, the amount of time that can be saved is tremendous.
Library browser is an intelligent family browser; you can search your libraries on various criteria. A sample library has been added to the installation folder, but obviously you can add your own library paths as well.
Subcategory editor is similar to parameter editor and enables you to create, modify and delete subcategories in batch mode. Also the actions performed on families can be saved in an .xml format so they can be applied again to a different set of families at a different time.
Sheet configurator Configure multiple views on a single sheet, automatically view placement in predefined order
Multi sheets can be used to generate sheets from views. You can select a set of views and a title block. Per view a sheet will be generated.
Sheet duplicate enables you to create one or more copies of the active sheet. You add a suffix to the name, and the desired number of copies.
Tags easily manipulate locations of tags
