Quickly generate & control Revit project documentation [WEBINAR]

Throughout the years we’ve been optimizing BIM workflows, one thing has not changed. 2D documentation and shop drawings are the final results that building designers and manufacturers need to put out for the prefabrication and construction processes to move forward.

As BIM becomes an integral part of the AEC industry and workflows quickly adapt to it, we still need to produce many documents and detailed drawings, whether plans, sections, elevations and other project data.

Communication in the industry still hinges on documentation and its precision.

How to launch AGACAD’s Revit add-ons via Dynamo

The visual programming interface of Dynamo enables designers with the tools to extract, manipulate, and move Building Information Model (BIM) data in ways that make optimized workflows accessible. Dynamo for Revit opens up an unprecedented parametric approach to projects.

With Dynamo as a visual programming tool, algorithms are connected to Revit’s parametric database, which determines conceptual design development via formulas, algorithms, and geometric functions and integration with Revit for optimization, automation, and documentation.

Ways to Create Schedules with Element Views in Revit®

Even though technical documentation consumes a lot of time, which could be spent on work that creates value, it has to be done. So why not try automating it as much as possible? In this article, I will overview a few ways how to create schedules with element views in Autodesk® Revit®, so that you could decide which one fits your needs best.

All Revit® add-ons and BIM solutions are accessible through Dock dashboard

Compact access to all AGACAD TOOLS4BIM product management directly from your workstation – closer than ever

Eliminating the tasks that do not bring value

Take the pain out of managing AGACAD TOOLS4BIM applications:
Simply upload your tools for Revit® and always work with up-to-date versions, try out other AGACAD products, get the newest information and help – all of this is just a few mouse clicks away.

What Dock Is and Why It’s Worth to Use

TOOLS4BIM Dock is a new interactive window in Autodesk® Revit® that you can use to access and manage all AGACAD developed Revit apps and BIM solutions. This tool manager is very practical and a powerful way to simplify Revit apps installation, activation and usage.

Install Any or All Products at Once

Formerly, by the previous AGACAD product installation procedure, each tool for Revit had to be installed and activated separately. Moreover, Revit user had to keep in mind to close Revit before installing procedure. It is now possible to easily install any desired product or all of them at once. It is also very simple to activate tools: you just have to click the Activate button. No more serial numbers but activation codes instead.

Big BIM Solution Layers in a Compact Environment

Previously all the Revit apps were visible in the Revit ribbon separately, each as a special menu tab. AGA CAD owns over 30 applications for Revit so you can imagine how long the ribbon can be… Now all tools are visible in the TOOLS4BIM Dock dashboard, the TOOLS 4 BIM tab is only placed in the Revit Ribbon. You can easily show Dock or hide it from this tab:

The TOOLS4BIM Dock works as a separate window likewise does the Properties palette or the Project Browser in Revit. Position of the Dock window can be changed along the user wishes: you can place Dock dialog to any Revit workplace, the same as with Properties or Project Browser window (on the left/right side of the screen, move to a second monitor or simply deactivate view):Read more »

How to Create Legends with Included Side Views and the Front View of Revit® Corner Window or Door?

In this article I will take a quick overview of the possibility to create Revit legends with included side-view of a corner door, a window or any other corner element.

Experienced Revit users know that it is possible to include a side-view of Revit family in a component legend using plain Revit, but in that case they need to create legends separately for each element type. Therefore Revit users waste a lot of time at work if there are many different type elements in Revit project. How to solve this problem?Read more »
