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

With What's Hot, at about the middle of each month, we look back to see what posts received the most pageviews over the past month and a half-ish.

For November, three posts clearly separated themselves from the pack, while ten others were bunched closely together.

13 posts may seem like alot to consider, but there were 92 posts last month(!).

For the second month in a row, our roundup of Autodesk Product Enhancements for Revit 2017 topped the list. Our previus What's Hot list came in second, and the free ARCHICAD Connection add-in for Revit 2017 came in third (the 2016 version charted in fourth place last month).

Posts about new add-ins that charted included: Auditorium Maker, the free DWG Sync Tech Preview, the free NBS Add-in, Ultimate Plugin Suite, V-ray for Revit (the initial commercial release), and the free Slapshot.

Other updates that charted included: RebuildWalls and OBJ Exporter for Revit.

Unifi announcing their new content audit service and our first comparitive roundup, this one about 3D PDF Exporters, rounded out the list.
