    • Revit families are listed in a "tree view" where they can be grouped by original folders, categories, insertion types, or unit systems.

Different benefits of NLM licenses:
  • Smart Browser Simple NLM - ensures that in your project only required Revit® families will be used, which are stored on a server. So it reduces opportunities of employee arbitraries. Smart Browser Simple NLM enables Revit users to access company provided content and does not allow end users to modify the enterprise database of Revit families;
  • Smart Browser Power NLM - allows quick and easy browsing and search of your or company Revit® families that are stored in user’s computer or on server. It allows Revit users to create and exploit their own library as well as company’s library.

If you require to manage user installation and modify many Revit families in your projects, we offer you to choose a powerful BIM solution Smart Browser Manage that is able to search for, review, insert, modify, or add new families in a fast and easy way:

- Must have APP! - Carlos Vieira.

Nice tool to have simple to use, easy to install. Allows the user to see the parameter data from the family, load into your project and even open the family editor. The only thing I would say when creating the dwf's it takes a little while if you have selected a lot of families, but other than that it’s a great tool.
