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 »
