This setup will install add-in tools for Autodesk® Revit® 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. The BIM Manager Suite is part of the CTC Express Tools family of products, and contains the following tools:

Family Tools
This tool contains a collection of utilities that assist with the family creation process, including: Deleting backup families, working with type catalogs and shared parameter files, listing the version of Autodesk® Revit® in which families were last saved.

Project Cleaner
This tool deletes views, sheets, schedules, legends and Revit links, which can be useful for preparing projects to send off to consultants.

Revision Cloud Remover
This tool makes it fast and easy to remove non-issued revision clouds from your project.

Dimension Checker
This tool finds dimensions whose text does not show dimensionally accurate values

Family Processor
This tool can batch add, change or delete materials, parameters and shared parameters within one or many family files. This includes replacing existing parameters with shared parameters, as well as updating parameter values and formulas.

Import and Link Manager
This tool assists with locating and managing CAD objects within a Revit model.

Schedule Parameter Resolver
This tool changes schedule parameter definitions to match those used in families, without losing schedule formatting.

Shared Parameter Manager
This tool manages the content of shared parameter files and assists with batch loading pre-saved sets of shared parameters into projects.

Type Swapper
This tool makes it easy to change the type or style used for text, dimensions and line elements.  Family elements can also be swapped.

This tool adds secure, password-protected digital signatures to your families and projects.

Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard Autodesk App Store installer).

BIM Manager Suite is brought to you by CAD Technology Center. It's priced at 1,250.00 USD. A free version is available with a subset of the tools and trials of the others.

There's more information available on the Autodesk App Store.
