This setup will install add-in tools for Autodesk® Revit® 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. The BIM Project Suite is part of the CTC Express Tools family of products, and contains the following tools:
BIM List
This tool is a content management solution providing the ability to browse, sort, search and leverage your families more effectively, helping to enforce company standards.

Detail Link
This tool automates the process of linking AutoCAD® DWG details for use in the Autodesk® Revit® project environment.

Length Calculator
This tool calculates the length of selected duct, pipe, conduit or cable tray runs.

Project Link
This tool provides a system for finding and organizing documents and web site addresses from within Revit.

Quick Select
This tool quickly changes which elements are selected by using filters for categories, parameter values and views.

This tool provides a fast and simple way to renumber your rooms and doors, including adding separators and suffixes to room and door numbers.

Revit Properties
This tool shows Revit file properties (including Revit version) by right-clicking on the file in Windows Explorer.

Fab Sheets
This tool assigns elements to an increment/sequence via parameter values, generates views and places them on sheets.

Fire Rating
This tool automates the assignment of fire ratings and the generation of fire rating graphics for life safety plans.

Model Compare
This tool allows taking data "snapshots" of a project and compares the differences as the project changes.

Parameter Jammer
This tool modifies families in a project so they work with the project's schedules.

Revision Manager
This tool lists revision information, including view and sheet associations, and allows the results to be saved to a spreadsheet file.  Revision changes can be made as well.

Room Family Manager
This tool enables defining, maintaining and validating the family content of each room using room type definitions.

Schedule XL
This tool will create one or more schedule or drafting views from one or more spreadsheet worksheets, allowing automatic updates when opening the project.

Spreadsheet Link
This powerful tool exports data from Revit to a spreadsheet where the data can be easily edited and then loaded back into Revit. Powerful embedded spreadsheet functions can be used without requiring external spreadsheet software.

Spreadsheet Link Express
This tool runs Spreadsheet Link automatically, using previously-saved settings.

View Creator
This tool enables Revit users to quickly and consistently create views in their projects

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

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