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

The week of November 20, 2017 was a busy one here on Revit Add-ons with 37 posts published.



From the Autodesk App Store, we posted about IDEA StatiCa Connection, for analyzing, designing and checking steel connections and joints, Polygon Select, for selecting elements using irregular polygon shapes, and SheetEz, for more easily and powerfully managing sheets.

From around the Internet, we posted about the free BIMcollab ZOOM, for IFC model viewing and validation.

BIM 360

From the App Store, we posted about the free Voice 360, for controlling the Forge Viewer with voice commands.


From the App Store, we posted about the free BIMSens, for read/write interactions with external data sources.

Autodesk Advance Steel

The previous week, we posted for the first time about BIM 360 add-ins, and posted about all of those on the App Store. This week, we did the same for Autodesk Advance Steel by posting about the following:

We also took the opportunity to update our quick access badges in the right sidebar by adding ones for Autodesk Advance Steel and BIM 360. We also modified the Dynamo one to use the Dynamo Studio logo (even though we prefer the original Dynamo logo) for consistency with the other product-related badges, and arranged them alphabetically. Click on these badges to quickly filter posts by tag values.


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

From around the Internet, we posted about ARCHIBUS v23.2BIMcollab v4.0 plus a Sneak PreviewElumTools v2018.4, 2017.7, & 2016.11, and UNIFI v3.1, which includes a new AutoCAD add-in. We also posted about a few AGACAD updates, including two for Wood & Metal Framing, one from early November and another from mid-November, and an update to Metal Framing Truss that adds support for the creation of metal floor trusses.


It's been awhile since we posted about Dynamo, and it was good to get back in the saddle by posting about orienting beams perpendicular to surfaces.

Also in the realm of Dynamo, we posted about an academic paper comparing parametric design systems for teaching design computation.

We posted about FLUX slashing their subscription price by 60% amid record growth, and 50% off end-of-year savings on SimLab Composer.

For the Revit API, we posted about detecting empty views, and retrieving curtain wall panel faces.

For the Forge API, we posted about Autodesk Forge Data Management now featuring webhooks, and integrating BIM 360 data with PowerBI using R.

For free webinars, we posted about:
