Roundup – For the Week of September 18, 2016, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store (Updated)

Nearly 90% of the Revit-related add-ins listed as being updated on the Autodesk App Store during the week of September 18, 2016 were, in reality, false positives.

One of the services that we provide here on Revit Add-ons is winnowing down the list of apparent updates to actual updates, and that can make a big difference in some weeks, as in this one.

As to why so many add-ins are erroneously listed as having been updated when they apparently weren't, this could be down to...
  • The developer not providing an accurate version number
  • The developer indicating an update in the App Store database when none was actually issued, perhaps to move the add-in to the top of the list on the page, or...
  • An App Store glitch

As a third party, however, we have no idea why this actually happens, but happen it does, frequently. Rest assured though that we here at Revit Add-ons will continue to look out for you by attempting to make our lists of updated add-ins as accurate as possible using the available version information.

That being said, several new add-ins debuted on the App Store this week: one for real-time 3D animations, OneRay RT, one for placing an Excel range in a drafting view, BIMWERX - Draw Spreadsheet, one for quickly toggling the display of imported CAD files, ON / OFF CAD Imported Drawings, and, lastly, one for adding low voltage electric power cable instances, Electric Power Cables (EPC).

Several add-ins were updated to Revit 2017: ClarkDietrich Wall Type CreatorCurtain ModelerReforma Swing Direction, and Switch Join Order.
