Roundup – For the Week of May 22, 2016, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

On May 25, 2016, the Autodesk App Store had yet another hiccup, resetting the release dates, inaccurately in almost all cases, of some 100 add-ins. I've done what I can to weed out add-ins that were most likely NOT updated on that date, but this is becoming quite tiresome. If I was a developer with add-ins on the Autodesk App Store, I would demand explanation from them as to why consumers cannot depend on the release dates indicated on the site, or know accurately when updates have been released.

That being said, sorting through the false updates was worthwhile because some major updates were released. For instance, CTC updated their popular BIM Manager and BIM Project suites to Revit 2017, as well as their SuperDoor Configurator.

CTC also released their new BIM Batch Suite on the App Store. Other new add-ins included one that adds parameter sliders to the Family Editor (Family Editor Interface), a multi-purpose parameter management tool (HotGear Project - Parameter Explorer), and an add-in for batch replacing in-place families (ArchiCAD Object Replacer). Kiwi Codes' Project Browser also made its debut on the App Store.
