The Week that was in Revit Add-ons for March 20-26, 2017

The week of March 20, 2017 was an exceptionally busy one on Revit Add-ons with 26 articles published.


From the Autodesk App Store, we posted about the awkwardly-named yet self-descriptive Synchronize same viewport location to all sheets, as well as AutoExcel, the self-proclaimed "fastest Export / Import from Excel", and (another) Sheets Creator.


From the App Store, we posted about Lumion Version 7.3 and the Lumion Plugin Version 2.0, which include LiveSync for Revit.

For additional App Store updates not mentioned here, please see our latest roundup.

From around the Internet, we posted about AVAIL Version 3.1, as well as the latest RTV Xporter Pro Update, which now supports Collaboration for Revit (C4R) in the desktop app, a new and improved MagiCloud release, a Site Extractor update with a new look, and a video on ClashMEP Clash Control Center upgrades, including a new real-time Clash Counter.


It's been quite awhile since we posted a product review, and we were happy to get a new one up: Product Review – AVAIL (version 3.1).

We posted about a preview of Advance Steel 2018 and Steel Connections for Revit.

From the world of Dynamo, we posted about the free Beta release of the Butterfly Plugin for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). We also posted about Creating Randomized Panel Facades, Exporting Schedules to Excel, and a video tutorial of Dynamo and Advance Steel.

We posted about the following free webinars (future dates shown in bold): BIM Assure Model Health Checks held on March 21, Bluebeam Revu 2017 Training held on March 23, What's New in Advance Steel 2018 to be held on March 30, AVAIL for Revit on March 23, 28, & 30, MagiCAD for Revit MEP – common / general Revit productivity tools to be held on April 12, and optimizing issue management workflows with BIMcollab and Solibri to be held on April 11 & 12. We also posted webinar videos "Visualization – Making Revit NOT Look Like Revit", and creating a Dynamo user interface (UI) with XAML and C#.

We also posted a video about reusing Grashopper scripts in Revit via Flux, and a Site Extractor Tutorial video.

For the do-it-yourselfers out there, we posted free RevitWebcam source code for displaying a live webcam image on an element face.


Our post about Lumion version 7.3 and the Lumion Plugin version 2.0 spent all but one day in the number one slot on our Trending Top 10 list. The post has garnered a lot of attention, with over 600 pageviews.

Our post about 3D+ RPC Creator (Beta) spent most of the week in the top ten, as did our posts Advance Steel 2018 and Steel Connections for Revit PreviewFree Webinar March 30, 2017: What's New in Advance Steel 2018Sheets CreatorAutoExcelSynchronize Same Viewport Location to All SheetsFree RAAPS - Sheet Generator 2016, and Free Butterfly Plugin for Computational Fluid Dynamics for Grasshopper and Dynamo Beta.
