From the Autodesk App Store...

About This Version

Version 2017., 9/7/2016

  • Import changes to values of editable parameters in Excel back into the Revit model.
  • Multiple Excel templates are supported for one model.
  • Possibility to export/import your settings in order to implement DataLink easier into your corporation.
  • Selection of your Revit elements based on selection of the elements in the Excel list.

*Bug fix: problems with material export

  • Improvement of the read/write process, which speeds up the extraction.


With this plugin for Autodesk® Revit® 2017, you can extract your BIM data to a custom Excel template. Choose the categories and the family, project or shared parameters, from within the Revit interface, that need to be defined in your Excel template. The user has the possibility to customize the Excel workbook with own formulas, layouts, and map the Revit parameters with the custom fields in the workbook.

The data is exported separately for Category Instances and Category Types, Material Instances, Project Information, used in the model. This can be done for each category. This tool distinguishes oneself because of its possibility to dig up data that cannot be shown in Revit schedules (i.e. volumetric data on stair treads, risers, supports, compound structure of walls and floors,).

Finally, you can manage the workbook by merging the chosen data from you separate worksheets into one "Merged" worksheet. This can be customized by a mapping dialog.

When changes are made to the values of editable parameters in Excel, you can import the changes back into your Revit model.
