Free Sample of Using Autodesk Forge to Access Revit Model Properties

From Jeremy Tammik's The Building Coder blog:

RVT Properties to XLS and Forge Accelerators

Are you interested in easy access to your Revit model properties?

Well, you can have that, and you can even do so without a need to install Revit.

The Forge Model Derivative API extracts a streamlined copy of all geometry, BIM element hierarchy and properties from over fifty file formats, and Revit RVT files are just one of them.

Augusto Goncalves implemented the viewer-javascript-extract.spreadsheet Forge sample to read all the properties on all BIM elements in an RVT file and export them to an XLSX spreadsheet.

That's pretty neat, I think.

Many thanks to Augusto for putting that together.
