The Week that was in Revit Add-ons for April 9-15, 2018

The week of April 9, 2018 was a pretty busy one here on Revit Add-ons as we tried to share as much information on add-ins for the newly released Revit 2019 as we could find. We published 17 posts this week.



From the Autodesk App Store, we posted about MatchRotation for aligning plan, section or elevation views, scope or section boxes, and annotations or detail items with model objects. This add-in is from friend to Revit Add-ons Juan Osborne. Juan's five add-ins on the App Store are all 5-star rated, with an impressive 64 reviews between them, so be sure to check out this new one.

Also from the App Store, we posted about View Report for Navisworks for exporting Navisworks reports to Word or PDF.


Preceding the biggest news of the week, the release of Revit 2019, by a couple days, the release of Revit 2018.3 was big news too, largely because of its integration with the new, next generation of BIM 360, which features the rebranding of Collaboration for Revit (C4R) to BIM 360 Design. We tired to make sense of what Autodesk meant by the "the new" BIM 360 by aggregating information from several sources and providing quite a few useful links in this article.

Both from Revit Add-ons' sponsor Revolution Design, we posted about Keynote Manager v15.0, which includes Revit 2019 compatibility, keynote reporting, usage color-coding, and other enhancements, and Revit workFlow v6.1, which also features Revit 2019 compatibility plus enhancements to autoLink and other improvements. Their other add-in, Selection Master, has also been updated to Revit 2019.

We also posted an update from another Revit Add-ons sponsor, ArchVision, about Revit out of the box content now being delivered through AVAIL.

For App Store updates not mentioned here, see our latest roundup, as well as our special Revit 2019 supplemental edition.


For the fourth year in a row, we're maintaining a one-stop resource post for Revit add-ins and extensions available from Autodesk for the latest release of Revit. Our latest entry is Revit 2019 Product Enhancements from Autodesk, and we've already updated it three times. This year's edition is new and improved with more information, including product website, help and community web links.

We also updated our Revit 2018 version for the eighth, and probably final, time.

From the world of Dynamo, from Kyle Morin, we posted about DynaBleau, which enables Dynamo data visualization in Tableau, and, from Ryan Cameron of Architect Machinesslat wall random colorization with Dynamo.

We've been catching up with Simon Moreau of BIM 42 lately, and we posted about his Sloth, a free and open-source online BCF viewer and reports engine.

For the do-it-yourselfers out there, we posted a couple items from Jeremy Tammik of The Building CoderRevit 2018.3 API improvements and compiling the Revit 2019 SDK samples – some important lessons for add-in developers.

We posted about a couple educational events: Brand New MEP Hangers – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, a free webinar held on April 12, and Autodesk Building, Infrastructure & Construction User Conference, a free one-day conference to be held in the UK on April 24 and 26.
