The Week that was in Revit Add-ons for the Week of November 14, 2016

Here on Revit Add-ons, we like to try new things, and this is our first week-in-review article.

We've been posting so frequently lately (29 posts last week), that we thought it might be a good idea to have a recap article.

Think of it this way, if you only have time to read one article a week on Revit Add-ons, make it this one.

So, let's get to it...

We posted quite a bit about ProtoTech Solutions' offerings, updating our posts on their 3D PDF Exporter and WebGL Exporter, and posting a roundup of their offerings.

ProtoTech Solutions also factored into our first ever comparative roundup, this one on Revit to 3D PDF.

Our What's Hot for October article dropped early in the week, and it's been a burner.

We posted about the ARCHICAD Connection Add-in for Revit 2017, and the free rvt2skp add-in for exporting Revit to SketchUp,

We also posted about BIM SOFT SOLUTIONS' new Purge Unused View Template, and the new and free ENTiTi AR/VR Exporter.

It's been awhile since we had a new Revit-related tech preview on Autodesk Labs, and DWG Sync for Revit families fit the bill.

There were a spate of announcements and releases around AU 2016, including the Revizto 4.2 Special Update release, the all-new qrVR and Skope Suite from Kubity, the VRay for Revit commercial release, the IMAGINiT Clarity 2017.1 Release, which includes integration with Dynamo scripts and Revit macros, and CL3VER securing significant funding from Chaos Group for a new line of real-time mobile, Web and VR applications.

AGACAD announced a new prefabricated wooden roof framing solution that's coming soon.

ToOLOwl (get it?) posted a review of BIM Track.

In the area of updates, CAD Technology Center released new versions of their popular BIM Project SuiteBIM Manager Suite, and BIM Batch Suite. The ProductXchange Plugin, FenestraPro Premium, and Bonus Tools were also updated.

Under the heading 'better late than never', we belatedly posted about Project Fractal, the free Slapshot for exporting Revit to Unity, the BIM Consortium Add-in update for Revit 2015, and a roundup of free Revit macros from Troy Gates of Revit Coaster.

One of our favorite stories of the week was how Bluebeam teamed with Microsoft on the New Surface Studio for AEC Workflows (we love us some Bluebeam, and the Microsoft Surface Studio is drool-worthy).

Finally, check out our weekly roundup of the new and updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store.
