IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit 2016 Includes 2 New Tools
The Indispensable Time-Savers for Autodesk Revit
IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit 2016 supports only Revit 2016 products. We do also offer versions for Revit 2013, 2014 and 2015. The IMAGINiT Utilities are available in either Standalone or Named-User versions.
NEW in Utilities for Revit 2016*:
Dependent View Copy
Automate the creation of dependent views in your model, based on an example set. This utility handles view naming, crop regions, splits and more.
Pipes in Revit can be finicky – if two segments are out of alignment by a tiny fraction of an inch – they cannot be joined together. This tool provides a wide variety of ways to adjust pipes so that they will trim together, and you can keep on piping.
*These tools only in IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit 2016, which will be available beginning June 19, 2015.
Other tools include:
View Cleanup - Helps reduce file size and reduces the time you need to clean up excessive views from Revit models. It’s especially helpful when working with multiple consultants.
LinkFixer - Update model links quickly and easily. Re-path a single model or several folders’ worth of information.
Revit Excel Link - Export Revit project data to Excel and Import data from Excel to a Revit project. Use filters to control what you want to export, include information like what view on which a particular item appears. For importing, you can create elements you want to have in your model based on the spreadsheet, including rooms, spaces and sheet placeholders.
Space Update - Eliminate tedious manual input of room names and numbers in different places. Seamlessly transfers and copies room names and numbers from the linked Revit architecture model to the MEP model.
Room Renumber - Easily renumber existing rooms into an order defined by selection. Insert rooms into an existing series with the subsequent room numbers “shifted” to make space for the inserted one.
Element Renumber - Enjoy the same kind of capabilities as Room Renumber, but with other element types like grids, levels, doors, windows, and spaces. You can either renumber based on a selected order or insert a new number and shift the existing ones. You could also use a line to draw a path to create your renumbering sequence. Finds gaps and allows you to re-sequence in order.
Change Case - Instantly match your organization’s or client’s standards on naming with UPPER CASE, Title Case, or lower case. This tool scans your model and automatically fixes “case issues” to whatever standard you specify. You can also configure what you wan tto change, like updating the case on paramenters and elements only.
Translate - Working with clients in other languages? Powered by Google Translate™, you can use this utility to automatically translate notes and room information from the current drawing language. Includes additional configuration for special words and words that should not be translated.
Dim Text Update - Override multiple dimensions using chosen text options.
Parameter Concatenater - Assemble multiple parameter values into a single text parameter using a custom expression.
DWFPlus - Create DWF files with more BIM information - whether augmenting parameter data in 2D and 3D, adding hyperlinks, or creating new viewpoints to highlight content, DWFPlus will make your DWFs into the deliverables you expect from Revit.
ViewSetup - Cover all the levels, phases and types of views you want with information presented to you in the ViewSetup utility in a grid, you can easily generate dozens to hundreds of new views with ease.
GridSelect - Select Revit elements based on the grid they are on. Select walls, columns, beams and more. Choose the current level or all levels and select collinear or touching beams.
Door Mark Update - Make door marks refer to the room that the door swings into. Enables you to inspect and override the suggested marks and updates the marks. Also provides user-specified suffixes.
Earth Connector for Revit - Watch your building come together, phase by phase, within Google Earth. This utility supports Revit Phases working with Google Earth time spans.
Room Phase Copy - More Revit users are employing Revit’s Phases to represent as-builts or multi-phase projects, but Revit’s Rooms are limited to a single phase. The Room Phase Copy tool makes it easy to copy Rooms from one phase to the same location in another phase and push updates on an ongoing basis.
Parameter Copy - Easily copy information between parameters across the whole Revit model. Whether moving parameters for type to instance, host to element, room to component or even just switching to a new parameter, this utility takes a grueling task and makes it easy.
