The Week that was in Revit Add-ons for January 9-15, 2017 (Updated)

Updated on January 18, 2017 to add LinkReloader.


From the Autodesk App Store, we posted about new add-ins Megara Shared Parameters Creator, Move Views, for moving viewports from one view to another, the awkwardly-named Where is My Element?, for diagnosing and fixing view-specific element display issues, similar to Ideate Software's X-Ray, and LinkReloader, for reloading all links without having to open project files.

From around the Internet, we posted about the commercial releases of Xinaps' Accessibility Evaluator and Fire Safety Assessor. (After our original posts, these two add-ins were also added to the App Store.)


From around the Internet, we posted about UNIFI version 2.1 and AVAIL version 3.0.

For updates on the App Store, check out our latest roundup.


We published our latest What's Hot in Revit Add-ons article, this one for December 2016.

We had a run on webinars and online training last week with offerings from AGACAD, AVAIL, ElumTools, and UNIFI. Some of the sessions are still upcoming so be sure to check out the posts.

We posted a couple of related product roundups last week, one on shared parameter management add-ins from Megara Engineering Services and the other on parameter management add-ins from Harrison-Dean.

We posted current download and install instruction for the free Zoom to Awesome add-in.

Lastly, we posted about a free VB.Net macro to make sheet print sets from a sheet parameter.

What Trended

Our recent posts about practical uses of Dynamo, one for showing the changes between two 'snapshots' of a model and another for fire exit route computation, spent much of the week at or near the top of our Trending list.

Our posts about AVAIL 3.0LightUp version 5.3.7, QuickSelect version 1.0.1, and UNIFI version 2.1 spent much of the week in the list, as did our posts about the commercial release of Fire Safety Assessor and the free FBX Exporter.
