Excel2R has been one of our most popular Tools4Revit add-ons for a long time running. And there’s good reason for that. Besides quickly importing MS Excel spreadsheets into Autodesk® Revit® with all formatting intact, users really appreciate that they can sync their Revit data tables with the original spreadsheet at any time because the app maintains the link between Excel and the Revit project.
Through working together with our clients and listening to their requests, we’ve revamped Excel2R so that it can serve their needs even better. The two major enhancements have to do with conditional formatting and loading spreadsheets. Let’s look at the latter first. Read more »
When we talk about different project phases, shop drawing prep is definitely one of the most time-consuming.
If you’re working in plain Revit, you have to create many dimensions manually, and placing one dimension takes two clicks, and a given assembly may need upward of 200 dimensions.
Not to mention dropping views on sheets and creating notes or tags for each connection.
We made Smart Assemblies to drastically reduce the time it takes to make shop drawings in Revit. And we’ve been making it even better ever since, so that it can save you hundreds of hours of manual work. So, if you work in Revit and the prefabrication industry, Smart Assemblies is definitely a tool to have.
Now more than ever.
Let’s have a look at the new enhancements that Smart Assemblies has gotten. Read more »
Smart Connections is rated as one of the biggest time saving Revit add-ons amongst precast clients, so we’ve been working on it quite a lot to find new ways to help structural engineers get their day-to-day tasks done more efficiently.
Here are the latest updates we’ve made. Read more »
AGACAD is filling an important gap in the market for BIM tools with its latest product for Autodesk® Revit® users. The new Sandwich Panels solution makes it easy to create multi-purpose buildings with shell structures made of insulated panels in a unified BIM project environment. Read more »
Thanks to user feedback, we are constantly developing our Wall Reinforcement add-on for Revit. And that’s bringing benefits for precast designers and structural detailers in the form of increased in software functionality, accuracy, and work process efficiency.
In the latest version, the configuration window was improved with wall T-connection settings, and separate commands to control rebar visibility and selection were added. Let’s take a look at each of those updates. Read more »
Detailing building designs requires many hours of work, especially for structural projects that require a high level of detail. And it doesn’t matter what BIM software is used to create them. Preparing shop drawing documentation often accounts for at least half the total project preparation time. That’s why automating the design process has always been a critical need for AEC industry experts. The principle is very simple: TIME IS MONEY. Read more »
Tagging elements in Revit is a relatively straightforward task. Revit has a range of default tags to offer and some basic functionality as well. You can even place tags automatically by chosen category. That is a great feature…until you need to adjust each tag on the drawings…keeping in mind that each drawing may contain dozens of them.
It’s an issue that Revit users commonly face. That’s why we developed and recently released a configurations-based solution for it. Introducing Smart Tags.
Smart Tags dramatically extends native Revit tagging functionality, saving you a lot of time during the documentation process. It can be used in combination with Smart Views and Smart Dimensions to take full advantage of automated drawing creation. Based on your criteria, you can preset what views will be created and how tags and dimensions will be applied. All this is done automatically once configurations are confirmed.
Where is Smart Tags? Read more »
Since styles for reinforcing precast walls vary from country to country, we receive feature requests from different parts of the world to make rebar detailing in Revit easier and less time-consuming. The latest came in from New Zealand and Finland.
Let’s take a look at what has been added in the latest release of our Wall Reinforcement BIM software.
Rebar cover reference
Rebar Plane Reference is a parameter that can be found in all rebar configuration tabs and allows you to change the plane in which the position of the rebar is calculated.
Below you can see the default option where two bars are created with Edge cover being calculated for each of them separately: Read more »
We have updated our Smart Browser solution for BIM managers by integrating our Sort Mark T4R Add-on into the Family Modification window so that users can work with all the Revit families they select for modification.
We hope this enhancement will help BIM and AEC professionals work even more efficiently when it comes to Revit family management. We made it with your needs in mind, for less stressful, more productive work in Revit. Read more »
