Free hsb3DPrinting Add-in for Revit – Disassemble Revit Models into Connectable Panels Fit for 3D Printing (Updated)

Updated 6/14/2016: This add-in has been renamed hsbModel.

From the Autodesk App Store...

hsbcad’s hsb3DPrinting is an add-in for Autodesk® Revit® that enables you to decompose a Revit building model into logical, scaled elements, print them on a standard 3D printer, and then assemble the model by clicking or gluing the elements together.

hsb3DPrinting can print Revit models on a large scale by splitting up objects that can be visually viewed in the building model, modifying them, and adding clickable connections to them.

A hsbcad customized family** is installed to provide the technology for the connections and labelling of the building model**. A ribbon shows the workflow of turning a Revit model into batches of stereolithography (.stl) files, containing ‘’FreeForms’’ of the building model with connections.

And if you're 3D printer uses a plastic-like material, the pieces of the model snap together without the need of tools. Editor's Choice worthy? You betcha!
