What's Hot in Revit Add-ons for November 2015

November was a busy month here on Revit Add-ons. There was a new monthly high posts count of 54 as I began to dig out from under a few months of relative inactivity. I write "began" because December looks to be at least as busy.

Statistically speaking, news of the four free "BIM Interoperability Tools" from Autodesk (and CADD Microsystems) dominated. Surprisingly, to me at least, Classification Manager received the most pageviews of the four individual articles. Unsurprisingly, COBie Extension received the least (yeah, I don't get COBie either).

A couple other add-ins did manage to generate impressive stats in November, the free Time Stamper, and BOM to Excel.

Free Time Stamper Add-in for Revit – Track the Origin of Each Revit Element
By adding some revision information on every element of a given Revit model, Time Stamper allows you to keep track of your model's history. With the information, you can keep track of the origin and authoring date of each element in complex project, quickly compare two versions of a Revit file and graphically display their differences, and more.

Product Review – Autodesk Model Checker and Model Checker Configurator for Revit
The Autodesk Model Checker for Revit is a free add-in that checks Revit models based on a configuration file – read: a set of BIM requirements – and generates a compliance report.

The Autodesk Model Checker Configurator for Revit is a free standalone desktop application that is used to create configuration files for the Model Checker.

I especially like that the configurator and the checker are separate applications. This provides a mechanism for controlling who can create or modify configuration files. In theory, this also means that the Checker can be streamlined and simplified, whilst complexity is surfaced in the Configurator. It's also nice that the Configurator, because it's a standalone desktop application, is not Revit version dependent.

Concept grade: A+
