GRAITEC Advance PowerPack 2016 Released

From the Autodesk App Store...

GRAITEC PowerPack for Autodesk® Revit® is packed with tools that deliver more functionality, better control and more automation for Revit users across all industries. Expertly localized for global distribution these utilities focus on speeding up modeling, simplifying family management, predefining annotations, dimension and drawings views to better automate documentation, and enhanced external data-links for improved BIM coordination.

Family Manager: Simplify Family management, selection and searches using a single easy to use interface complete with tree browser and thumbnail images. Use keywords to filter families and types.

BIM Connect: GRAITEC BIM Connect enables a powerful multi-discipline BIM workflow supporting geometric and analytical model import, export and synchronization, including the transfer of building performance and analysis data (FEM results), between Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Advance Steel and GRAITEC Advance Engineering products.

Move XY: Move any Revit element or selection in X and Y plane simultaneously.

Door Side (Swing): Detects all doors and their swing direction (left or right) in the current project and adds a new parameter to the object’s Properties making it easy to reference in views and schedules.

3D DWG to RFA (3D CAD Visibility): CAD to RFA: Converts a linked DWG model into a native Revit Family (generic model). Especially useful for referencing elements such as furniture, equipment, external or custom parts, pre-molded objects, etc.
RFA Update: Updates the converted Revit family if any changes are made to the original DWG file.

Shared Geometry Parameters: Add more shared parameters to the properties of specific types of objects for use in views and schedules or to filter project information. Additional parameters available:
Refresh (updates below shared parameters when a change is made)
Column Height
Beam Elevation
Wall Height
Wall Thickness
Slab Elevation
Lintel/Sill Elevation

3D View Creator: Quickly create 3D Views for specific areas of your project, or completely displaces the entire building by level. Tool options:
Level Displacement: Splits the current 3D View at each level.
Reset All Displacement: Resets the split views.
3D View for each level: Adds multiple 3D Views based on definable parameters.
Auto section box: Creates a 3D view of selected objects.

Split Pipes: Divide ducts and pipes (square and round) for an entire project into defined lengths (with before/after summary).

Auto Dimensioning: Creates a series of chain dimension strings based on a selection.
Quick Dimension: Converts a line to a dimension chain of all intersecting elements.

Join Dimension Lines: Selected parallel dimension lines are joined to form a single dimension chain.

Dimension Configuration: Define the number, spacing and types of dimension lines for above three commands.

Window Sill Tag: Places a ‘height and opening’ tag of the sill and window for any selection.

Structure Tag: 
Add annotation: Creates a multi-annotated tag of all materials associated to the floor slab.
Edit annotation: Allows the user to define the positioning/spacing of the tags.

Stair Line Control: Creates a continuation line for a stair defined by a sketch.

Edit Mark: Apply formulas to Mark numbers automatically to globally assign descriptions or prefixes.

Precast Tools: View Sheet Generator: Automatically creates a set of views for a selected assembly.
Include/Exclude from Schedules: Adds a parameter to structural connection components to enable easy filtering in assembly schedules.
Compute Volume: Calculates the volume of an assembly with or without subcomponents.

Arrange Views: Helps you align horizontally, vertically or by a line on a sheet all the selected viewports.

Legend Creator: Build, edit and copy custom legends for any type of element.

Export Sheets to DWG: This tool exports any selected Revit Sheets to DWG format.

Link XLS: Allows Excel Sheets to be linked to your project using a unique ‘DXF converter’ to ensure a high resolution presentation on drawings.

Key Parameter (from Excel): Add infinite Parameter data directly to a Revit Family by type or instance controlled from an Excel Sheet.
