Revit 2018 Visual Studio .NET Add-in Wizards

I updated the Visual Studio Revit C# and VB add-in templates for Revit 2018.

They enable you to create a new C# or VB Revit add-in in Visual Studio with one single click on File > New > Project... > Visual Basic/Visual C# > Revit 2018 Addin:

The templates define a complete skeleton Revit add-in, ready to immediately compile and run, including an add-in manifest file, an external application and an external command.

Just hit <F5> to start debugging; the add-in manifest is automatically copied to the proper location, Revit is launched in the Visual Studio debugger, and your shiny new add-in is immediately available in the external tools menu.

You can see it in action in this two-and-a-half-minute recording:

Please refer to the Visual Studio Revit add-in wizards topic group for further information on usage, customising the templates for your own needs and migrations in previous years.


The current version discussed above is release 2018.0.0.0.

The newest version is always available from the VisualStudioRevitAddinWizard GitHub repository.

[Installation instructions are on The Building Coder blog.]

I hope you find this useful and look forward to hearing about your customisations and suggestions for other enhancements.

Have fun!
