What's Hot in Revit Add-ons for July 2016

We're trying something a little different here on Revit Add-ons with What's Hot this month. In the chart below, we're including all posts, including our popular roundups and the like, though only posts related to individual products will receive snippets in the article below. I'll simply link to them at the bottom of this post.

Two posts were clear winners last month, the first one on the self-explanatory Sheet Duplicator and the other on the new Autodesk Live Viewer, for exploring interactive visualizations.

Next came a cluster of aggregation type articles, including two about RTC 2016 NA, the first about a session your humble author presented there, Essential Revit Add-ons, and the other a recap of the event, From an Add-ons Perspective. In between these two fell a couple of other posts, the first being one of the weekly roundups of New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store, this one for the Week of June 26, 2016, and the other the previous monthly What's Hot in Revit Add-ons article, for June 2016.

Lastly, several other posts were clustered closely together, including one about the BIMWERX Delta Tools, for comparing differences in iterations of models, a companion piece to the previously mentioned Autodesk LIVE Viewer, this one about the Autodesk LIVE Subscription Service itself, NuPAutoNum, for the automatic renumbering of elements, BIM Assure, the new cloud-based, collaborative model checker, and, lastly, COLORIZER, for coloring individual or categories of elements.

Note: All descriptions are those of the product vendors/developers.

BIMWERX Delta Tools – Compare Iterations of Models

BIMWERX Delta Tools for Autodesk® Revit® is an advanced Revit project comparison utility. With this tool, the user specifies 2 versions of the same project, the program then analyses user-specified changes between the two models, comparing model elements and displaying them in a color-coded 3D view, together with a dynamic element “finder” floating dialog.

NuPAutoNum Add-in

NuPAutoNum for Autodesk Revit enables automatic numbering of Revit elements. By pre-filtering, you may define which category or family type the Revit element to be numbered is supposed to be assigned to. You can further limit the preselection by predefined parameter values. Additionally, you can choose from several ways of numbering (figures, letters, as well as with prefix or suffix). It is moreover possible to analyze an existing numbering to check, for instance, whether it is gapless.

Cloud-based, collaborative model checker

BIM Assure’s intelligent rules search your models and highlight data issues important to you.
