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

At about the middle of each month, we take a look back at the preceding month to see which posts received the most page views.

Our 2016 year in review article topped the list for December 2016. Other aggregation or op-ed type articles that made the list included our posts about the completion of our re-branding efforts and the blogs we follow, as well as our previous What's Hot article.

Product-centric articles included, in order, ClashMEP and GenMEP, both from BuildingSP, the free A400 Export Schedules to Excel from A400, Reinforced BIM Designers for Revit from Graitec, and an update on the free Model Checker for Revit from Autodesk and CADD Microsystems.

2016 – Year in Review

In our most expansive year in review article yet, we communicated our outstanding stats for the year, highlighted and thanked our sponsors, and recognized our Editor's Choice Award and People's Choice Award winners.
