Revit SPF (Shared Parameter File) Organizer – Includes Free Revit SPF Viewer (Updated)

From the NET Spider Studio website:

Revit SPF Organizer 2019

It includes Revit SPF Explorer, Revit SPF Editor and Revit SPF Viewer. They are all standalone, not depending on Revit, Notepad, or Excel. They help explore, edit and view Revit shared parameters and their files on disk. All kinds of Parameter Types and Family Types (Categories) for whatever Revit versions (e.g. 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014) are supported. Parameters can be displayed in different views such as flat, by group, by displine, and by parameter type. Parameters can be regrouped, property matched, GUID changed, renamed, and case converted. Parameter groups can be added, changed, swapped, and merged. Parameter files can be sought by file name/version/date or parameter group/name/GUID.

After Revit SPF Organizer is installed, three shortcuts will appear on Windows desktop. They may look as follows:

Revit SPF Explorer:  It helps explore Revit Shared Parameter Files (SPFs) in any folders.  It lists out all shared parameter files of the current folder including its nested ones if opted into the right pane.    A lot of useful information such as Folder, File, Groups, Parameters, SPF Version, Date, and Size are shown for each SPF, and each column can be sorted at will.  The tool also provides many commands such as Save SPF Lib, Open SPF Lib, Open in Editor/Viewer, Open in Windows Explorer, Cut, Copy, Paste, and Delete to manage shared parameter files.

Revit SPF Editor:  It helps organize all kinds of Revit shared parameters in many different ways such as viewing, editing, adding, removing, (re)grouping, merging, separating, examining, exporting, and archiving. It supports All Kinds of Parameter Types and All Family Types (Categories).

Revit SPF Viewer:  It helps view Revit shared parameters in a few different ways (by Group, by Parameter Type, by Parameter Discipline, or Flat) in a nice standalone window, not depending on any other applications like Revit, Excel or Notepad.  It can also archive Revit shared parameter files (SPFs) as two other formats (po.txt and po.csv) that have only key information, look nicer, and can be edited by Excel or similar programs directly.  The best of all, it is FREE to use.

Revit SPF Organizer is brought to you by NET Spider Studio (aka Spiderinnet). It's priced at US $98.00.

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014.
