Family/DWG Exporter Importer (Updated)

From the Autodesk App Store...

What does the Family/DWG Exporter Importer do? 
With the Family/DWG Exporter Importer you can save Autodesk® Revit® families including their parameters automatically as Autodesk® AutoCAD® drawings.

After you have saved the modified drawing with an index and have updated the parameters, the drawings can be imported again quickly and easily. The corresponding families and their parameters are updated.

Who needs the Family/DWG Exporter Importer? 
In Revit models created by architects the window, door or facade elements are represented as "dummy" families. The planner who has to elaborate these elements can now export the dummy families and process them in the usual AutoCAD environment with the appropriate application (e.g. ATHENA). The dummy outlines are replaced by appropriate profile outlines, etc. Optionally, the planner can also adapt the element parameters and add certain profile information. Once the elements have been elaborated, they can be imported into the Revit model. The dummy families are automatically updated with the correct profile outlines.

Note: This is the restricted version. At any one time you can only export one family or import one DWG. Use the full version if you would like to export or import several objects simultaneously.
