Our company develops Excel schedules far ahead of our model design, so it is necessary for us to include those schedules with our Revit projects. In the past, we would use AutoCAD and its datalinks to export a CAD file that we would import to Revit which was met with all kinds of inconsistent and bewildering results. Now we can with the push of a button update our schedules, and even at a glance see which schedules are out of date. Beyond that, AGACAD’s support is amazing. We encountered a formatting/display issue which we informed them of, and in a very short period of time, the issue was resolved in the next version of the software. I haven’t experienced anything like that with any other software company. Incredibly satisfied!
