From the Autodesk App Store:

About This Version

Version 5.5, 11/28/2019
  • New license module.
    • License with a login instead of a key (or still use the key if you are more comfortable).
    • Automatically finds all licenses for your company if you use login.
    • Connects to the management portal for license and account management.
    • Portable licenses automatically time out on crashes instead of getting stuck on the machine.
    • Standalone activation’s can be force released on the management portal.
  • Settings can now be locked by managers in the settings file and will not be able to be changed by users in the UI.
  • Log level can now be set in settings allowing smaller log files and better responsiveness during normal operation.
  • New setting in update checks to show or hide pre-release versions.  If turned on, beta versions will be shown in the update list and when checking for new versions.  If unchecked only full public releases will be shown.
  • Revit 2020 support added; Revit 2016 support removed.


Filter the model by 6 different filters:
  • Value of any parameter (including greater than, less than, etc.)
  • Level (recognizes work plane based elements and elements using 'Schedule Level' and 'Reference Level' parameters)
  • Family
  • Category
  • Phase Created
  • Phase Demolished

Combine an unlimited number of filters for endless combination filters to get exactly what you want or use simple 'Quick Filters' for 1 click access to individual filters. Filter sets can be saved for quick access in the future and sets can be deployed by BIM management to all users.

The 'Rehost' command allows users to take elements from one level and place them on a new level. Combined with the Quick Level filter, this is essential when trying to remove redundant or unnecessary levels from a project to ensure that no elements are deleted when levels are deleted.

View your current selection in an organized grid view. Group, sort, and filter by type, level, phasing, etc. and modify your selection.

Apply individual filters with a single click using 'Quick Filters'.

Create filters based on level, family, phase created, phase demolished, or any parameter.
Filters and resulting elements are displayed on a palette interface and elements can
easily be selected and shown in Revit without closing the palette.

Export specific reports about the model to csv to work in Excel or
other spreadsheet programs.

Selection Master commands are contained in a panel on
the Revolution Design tab in the ribbon.

Add, remove, and modify filters easily directly on the palette.

Rehost elements from one level to another with the option to either
leave them in their physical location and modify offsets to retain offsets
and change levels. An essential tool for removing unwanted or redundant
levels from a project.

Combine any number of filters into filter sets. Filter sets are saved in the project
so they can be generated in an office template and will not be lost when moving
files or moving between users.
