Friday, December 27, 2019


From the Autodesk App Store:

With Autodesk® Revit® 2020.2, we were given access to the "Internal Origin" category for viewing. By default, it is turned on in all views when you open a project in the new version. This tool aims to assist you in hiding this category. This is achieved by iterating through ALL views and view templates and setting its visibility to false.

Before the tool is ran.

Revit users must select button Renumbering Sheet first.

A dialog will appear to ask you to select a range of sheets and renumbering rules. Click OK to see amazing results.

GeT Know-How

From the Autodesk App Store:

‘GeT Know-How' is an intuitive on-demand reference and eTraining tool available directly inside your Autodesk® software, including Autodesk® Revit®, Autodesk® AutoCAD®, Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D, Autodesk® Inventor®, or Autodesk® Navisworks®.

Custom Content: By utilizing ‘The Generator’ course authoring technology, organizations can have their custom courses and related workflows loaded directly into the plugin and access to their team.

Easy PDF Print

From the Autodesk App Store:

In most of the projects, you need to export multiple sheets to pdf and the output file name for each sheet should follow a naming convention. In practice, this is very time consuming and increases the likelihood of errors.

Also, the paper size and orientation of the output files may vary for different sheets, so it will take a long time to adjust them manually in large projects.

This plugin does the above for you easily. You could use the following pdf print drivers:
  • Adobe PDF
  • novaPDF
  • Microsoft Print to PDF
  • PDFCreator
  • PDF24
  • Bullzip PDF Printer

In the next revisions, other pdf drivers may be added.

It is recommended to set the preferences of the selected PDF driver from "Printers & scanners" in the Windows setting before using it inside the plugin, e.g. the output path.

For PDFCreator, PDF24, and Bullzip PDF Printer, you could change preferences by using their settings application.

For PDFCreator and Bullzip PDF Printer file naming process doesn't work properly, because of their built-in settings.

AutoCT – Auto Cable Trays; Automatic Containment Sizing for Electrical Circuits

From the Autodesk App Store:

AutoCT is shorthand for Automatic Containment sizing.

Our Autodesk® Revit® add-in automatically routes electrical circuits from start to endpoint along cable tray routes and automatically checks the containment size.

How does the software work?

Using filters created in the model, the software finds the nearest appropriate cable containment to both the start and end of the circuit and finds the path between them.

The cable sizes, cable types, configuration, spacing, etc. can be imported from the model or entered in our cable schedule.

The software gathers the calculated results and displays a 3D view of the fill factors for each containment - easily showing problem areas.

Key Features:
  • The calculation is fast and can easily update with circuit or model changes.
  • The software models circuits as accurately as possible - with options for different wire types, circuit configurations, grouping and methods of support.
  • Works with unconnected cable tray networks - The software can find the nearest appropriate cable tray type and continue its calculations.
  • Error checking is built-in - unconnected networks, zero diameter circuits, circuits with no panels, circuits with no filters, etc.

Free Quick Select By Filter

From the Autodesk App Store:

Reduce your time in selecting elements and deleting multiple filters:
  • The tool helps Autodesk® Revit® users to select elements quickly by filters. It can also help Revit users delete multiple filters in just one click.
  • The tool is independent with Revit Commands, so Revit users can open it and work with all Revit Commands at the same time.
  • It is also available to display the addin window always on top of Revit.
  • This tool is available for Autodesk® Revit® 2017-2020. The new version will be updated along with new Revit Version.

This tool is totally free, simply install and enjoy the app! If this tool is helpful for you, you can donate me a cup of tea.

Free Delete Multiple View Templates at Once

From the Autodesk App Store:

This application allows you to quickly delete multiple view templates from the project at once.

Free Chamfer and Fillet Lite

From the Autodesk App Store:

Chamfer and Fillet Lite is an add-in that lets you create a large number of chamfers or fillet arcs in one operation.

If you ever need to create Chamfer Lines or Fillet Arcs, this app is a no-brainer.

It adds a Chamfer feature to Autodesk® Revit® and improves upon the existing Fillet Arc by allowing you to batch process.

Both Chamfer and Fillet come with plenty of geometric options to save the user's time.

For Fillet, instead of controlling just radius, choose between arc length, radius or length of the line to be trimmed.

For Chamfer, choose between chamfer length, perpendicular distance to corner or length of the trimmed line.

Chamfer and Fillet Lite can be used in projects or families and supports detail lines, model lines, room separation lines, area separation lines, and symbolic lines.

Pro version supports walls, ducts, pipes, floors and more.

Floor Toolkit

From the Autodesk App Store:

Our app has the following features:
  1. Accurate creation of floors in automatic mode. While creating a floor, the holes under the columns and closed areas are taken into account, the floor also includes the space of the door threshold. Because of this, area of the created floor will be slightly larger than the area of the room and it can be included as a new field in the room finish schedule.
  2. After changing the contours of the rooms and the location of the doors, the geometry of the floors can be quickly updated.
  3. Some national standards require additional fields for the floor schedule, such as a description of the floor compound structure, a sketch of the floor section and a list of rooms, where this type of floor is used. Our application fills all these fields. Sketches of the floors can be edited.
  4. While creating the floor, the program searches for the type of floor most suitable for the type of floor finish used in the room. We also offer a solution that allows you to quickly assign all room finish schedule fields, using text patterns in the name of the room.
  5. If the base finish contains PVH floor moldings, it makes sense to calculate not only the total molding length, but also the number of connecting parts: inner and outer corners, joints and ends. If the base finish parameter specifies the length of one segment of the molding, the program will calculate the number of connecting parts per each room.
