Giant-Size Roundup – For June 4-17, 2018, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The weeks of June 4 and June 11, 2018 combined to be very busy ones for Revit-related add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Five new add-ins were published and another 26 were updated.

For new add-ins, for Revit, Batch Export NWC_v 2019 is for exporting multiple Revit models to Navisworks, Section View Aligner is for aligning new or existing section lines with elements, and Xport Elements to ETABS® is for copying and pasting elements from Revit to ETABS. For Navisworks, iFBIM CVP SYNC is for exporting and importing clashes and viewpoints data from iFieldSmart. For BIM 360, Buzzsaw Migration Service is for transferring data from Autodesk® Buzzsaw® into BIM 360® Docs, Box, OneDrive, SharePoint, and others.

For updated add-ins, BIM Track™, Bonus Tools, CTC BIM Project Suite, Greenlee BendWorks®, and STRATUS each received relatively significant refreshes.

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.
