Roundup – For Mar 12-18, 2018, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

Even after sorting out the chaff, of which again there was unfortunately a lot, the week of March 12, 2018 was a busy one for Revit-related add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Eight new add-ins were published (five for Revit and three for BIM 360), and another eight were updated (seven for Revit and one for Navisworks).

For new Revit add-ins, EXNO - Exterior Noise is a free add-in for evaluating the quality of sound insulation of windows against exterior noise, Dimensions by Line is for dimensioning objects identified with a crossing line, iviva Smart BIM is for extending BIM models to building operations, Line Cleaner is a free add-in for cleaning up CAD imports, and Section Height Editor is a free add-in for editing multiple section crop heights with one click.

For new BIM 360 add-ins, Cloud Browser is a free and lightweight alternative to Autodesk BIM 360, the aforementioned iviva Smart BIM is for extending BIM models to building operations, and MAGNET Enterprise is for connecting BIM 360 Docs to Topcon software and hardware products.

For updated add-ins, CaManSys Clash Management Suite for Navisworks Manage received a relatively significant refresh.

Apparent False Updates

Most weeks there are a number of add-ins listed on the App Store as having been updated when they appear not to have been. We call these false updates.

We suspect false updates primarily occur because developers have the ability in the App Store database to mark an 'update' without changing the version number. This is advantageous to developers because it moves their add-ins up in the App Store  'Newest' list. Also, authors of multiple add-ins on the App Store may use the practice to group their add-ins together. And some may mistakenly not change the version number for a legitimate update.

False updates may also be caused by glitches in the way the App Store serves up its database.

Lastly, apps are sometimes re-published with new logo artwork only.

We verify false updates by comparing the current version numbers with our last posts about the add-ins. This is work for us, though, hopefully, value for you.

In the hopes that the App Store will someday fix this problem, or developers will cease the practice, we list the developers and their add-ins that, though marked as updated, were not.
