What's Hot in Revit Add-ons for March 2017

With "What's Hot", at about the middle of each month, we take a look back at the preceding month to see which posts published that month received the most page views.

Last month we hit a new high water mark for posts, publishing 100! We received 48,638 pageviews during the month.

A handful of posts clearly stood out from the pack last month.

Lumion was a big winner with our post about Lumion 7.3 with LiveSync for Revit receiving over 1,000 pageviews, a rarity over such a short time span, and it's still in our Trending Top 10 list.

pyRevit charts on our "What's Hot" list twice, once for the eponymous suite-like add-in and once for its individual Pattern Maker tool.

Readers were apparently hankering for news on Revit 2018 as our post on the Advance Steel 2018 and Steel Connections for Revit preview charted high.

Our post about renaming families with Dynamo rounded out the list.

Free pyRevit Pattern Maker for Revit

"I always thought it’s really odd that Revit does not have a native pattern maker and the users have to buy third-party products for a simple vital feature like this. So I made one for pyRevit."

Advance Steel 2018 and Steel Connections for Revit Preview

"Since acquiring Advance Steel in 2013, Autodesk continues to work towards better support for BIM-centric workflows for structural steel design and detailing. For instance, we have been working to strengthen the interoperability between Autodesk Revit design software and Autodesk Advance Steel software. We’re happy to announce that the forthcoming Advance Steel 2018 release next month will now offer seamless consumption of LOD 350 Revit models."

Renaming Families With Dynamo

From Bill Allen of EvolveLAB: "I recently was working on a Revit template, and wanted to rename a lot families within the template.  Now I could go through the manual and tedious process of renaming all the families. The other option would be to write a script that would do it for me (and for future projects)."
