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.

Revit users who design, build, operate, and maintain built environments often utilize Revit plugins to manage BIM data and enhance workflows. Now, it’s possible to engage the functionality of AGACAD’s BIM Solutions and Tools4Revit Add-ons while using Dynamo. Here’s how!

New version of Excel2R: Load multiple spreadsheets into Revit, plus conditional formatting

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.

Great news for those working in the French version of Revit. Thanks to Eurostudio, our partner in France, AGACAD’s TOOLS4BIM Dock (2018, 2017) is now available in French!

And not only the Dock, but 3 tools are also en français:

Excel2R imports tables from MS Excel into Revit and retains style and format settings, significantly speeding up project documentation by synchronizing with the original spreadsheet, keeping your tables in Revit and in Excel tightly linked.

Smart Browser Free lets you easily find families on your computer, check their types and parameters, view them in 2D or 3D, and then drag-and-drop to add elements to your project.

Smart Browser Simple/Power lets you easily find Revit families on your computer or company server, check their types and parameters, view them in 2D or 3D, and then drag-and-drop to add elements to your project.

Speed up Revit® project documentation with Excel2R

Majority of Autodesk® Revit® users are experiencing a headache that is caused by the time consuming process of project documentation. Even though Revit has legend views, schedules, drafting views, etc., where you can create tables or plain texts with various information that reflect the project, it has some missing functionality as well.

We often get details about certain project parts from other specialists who are working with MS Excel. Of course, it is better and sometimes a must to have everything organized in one place. With that in mind, linking the spreadsheets in MS Excel to our Revit file and then, for example, having an ability to place them in sheets near Revit drawings sound like a great plan. Unfortunately, as you may already know, there is no rational way to do that with plain Revit. Luckily, there is a tool that can help. Excel2R is an excellent AGACAD tool that significantly speeds up project documentation process. This tool quickly imports MS Excel spreadsheets into Revit projects.Read more »
