Free Autodesk Model Checker for Revit v7

From the Autodesk BIM Interoperability Tools website:

Model Checker 


1. The nomenclature and naming of elements in the Model Checker were thoroughly reviewed and updated to try to avoid confusion between the tools and Revit and to make understanding the structure of checkset easier.

2. Updated user interface elements and layout have been applied for ease and consistency.

3. The help fly-outs have new links to multiple resources and are accessible on all the tool's windows.


4. The "Setup" or "Open" dialog box has been redesigned and applied to all the tools making it easier to understand the functions of each section and easier adoption.

5. An added list of “Recent” checksets used makes it simpler for users to find the checksets they access frequently.

6. A “Public Library” points to a web-server hosted “standard” checksets, managed by the BIM Interoperability Tools teams. This allows for easier and faster update of these checkset and addition of more as they are developed. As soon as the file is updated or added, users get access to them.

7. New metadata has been added to XML checkset files to include Date, Author, and Description information, customizable in the Configurator.

8. Heading, section, and check status are now stored in the Revit model, not in the XML checkset  file. This allows for a far better user experience as “template” or “master” checks can be more effectively leveraged.

9. Added context menus to allow for easier control of heading, section, and check status by the user.

10. The report structure has been overhauled and now matches the checkset structure to make monitoring and reviewing results easier to follow.

11. Each heading and section in the report now has a check results summary that gives a high-level summary of the checks in that area.

12. The summary portal has been redesigned to highlight critical overall data that users need to see.

13. A significant addition is the ability to export results of checks to an Excel file. This will allow collection of ongoing data and all monitoring of checks over time. The Excel file has been designed to allow for import of consistent data in BI applications.

Autodesk Model Checker for Revit is brought to you by Autodesk. It's free.

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2019, 2018, 2017, and 2016.
