hsbModel – Disassemble Revit Models into Connectable Panels Fit for 3D Printing

From the Autodesk App Store...

hsbcad’s hsbModel is an add-in for Autodesk® Revit® that enables you to decompose a Revit building model into logical, scaled elements, print them on a standard 3D printer, and then assemble the model by clicking or gluing the elements together.

hsbModel can print Revit models on a large scale by splitting up objects that can be visually viewed in the building model, modifying them, and adding clickable connections to them.

A hsbcad customized family** is installed to provide the technology for the connections and labelling of the building model**. A ribbon shows the workflow of turning a Revit model into batches of stereolithography (.stl) files, containing ‘’FreeForms’’ of the building model with connections. See

hsbmodel is a limited yet full functioning app that allows the user to explore the possibilities of 3D Printing on Revit but limits the user to creating 25 Freeforms and has the hsbcad logo embossed on each Freeform in each project, after which they will be provided with an opportunity to upgrade to the premium version.
