Critical Mass – 5-Star Rated Revit Add-ins* on the Autodesk App Store

Peer reviews can help one to decide on apps to use or purchase. Unfortunately, reviews on the Autodesk App Store can be hard to come by. Apps that have thousand of downloads can have just a few reviews. Furthermore, the App Store's sort-by-rating function isn't the best as it doesn't take the number of reviews into account.

Listed below for your convenience are the 5-star rated Revit add-ins on the Autodesk App Store with at least four reviews, sorted by number of reviews, highest to lowest. Add-ins are also separated between free and paid.

We'll refresh this list every six months or so. And remember, reviews are important. Please take a few minutes to share your own experiences with apps on the App Store by submitting reviews!
