What's Hot on Revit Add-ons for April 2016

A handful of add-ins from the Autodesk App Store jockeyed for the most pageviews on Revit Add-ons in April 2016. Four of the add-ins were free, all except the top one: Import / Export Sheet Data from Excel.

A couple of the add-ins attempt to solve common problems, 3D Section Box for creating quick partial 3D views, and CADTracer for converting CAD details to Revit, and a couple have a structural bent, ENRColumn for adding reinforcement to columns and Advance Steel 2017 Extension for connecting Revit to Advance Steel.

Here's how the pageviews compared:
