Sort Mark is a handy tool for Revit that can help you deal with numerous element parameters instantly. Although this plugin may look simple at first glance, it packs quite a punch, as it can apply parameter value systems to multiple elements simultaneously, saving lots of time and doing it error-free.
Most of our clients are aware that Sort Mark’s functionality is included in our Wood Framing, Metal Framing, and Precast Concrete solutions as well as Smart Documentation toolset for Revit. So, in this blog post, we’re pleased to announce an update for Sort Mark that helps you easily tell similar elements apart according to their geometry.
Architects know how important it is and how time-consuming it can be to generate accurate project drawings in Revit. To some degree or another, reworking drawings is always necessary, things like dimensions, tags, and other data, in order to end up with high-quality documents.
In this article, you’ll see how our Smart Documentation plugin for Revit can help architects optimize their workflow.
Tagging Revit elements is a necessary part of every project. But it’s time-consuming and tedious, so the faster it can be done, the better.
Revit’s ‘Tag All Not Tagged’ function can be a great help, here, as it can place many different tags for elements of different categories. But the drawback of this approach is that Revit will tag every element of the selected categories, even if you didn’t intend to tag them or if you wanted to use a different tag.
Our tip for such a situation is to use Tag All for selected elements only. If tags need to be moved, you can temporarily hide other tags in the view and then select only the tags that are visible in the view. See our video in which this process is explained in greater detail:
Designing MEP systems in Autodesk® Revit® requires hanger and support families to be precisely placed so that accurate builder’s work drawings can be made from the 3D model. Needless to say, it consumes lots of time that could otherwise be spent creating additional project value.
Join our free webinar on October 27th during which our BIM expert will show how to automatically insert hangers and supports in Revit models using the MEP Hangers add-on. He’ll also show how to then create detailed shop drawings using the Smart Documentation add-on. We hope you can tune in!
Generating drawings and completing other project documentation can take a good chunk of time even when you have a well-prepared Autodesk® Revit® model. Placing dimensions and tags, marking elements, creating legends, generating views and sheets can all be automated with AGACAD’s newest product – Smart Documentation.
As an MEP engineer, I know how time-consuming it can be to properly document a Revit model. So, in this blogpost I’m going to show 9 ways you can speed up the project documentation process and improve the overall quality of your Revit projects.
But first, a short intro about the productivity toolset itself.
The latest edition of our newsletter AGACAD Advances has several items of interest, including the Japan installment of the Global BIM Survey we began last year and two client success stories focusing on wood framing in Revit.
Accompanying the launch of Smart Documentation, our newest add-on for Revit, we hosted a webinar to introduce the app to architects and engineers who want to complete drawings and schedules faster.
Since launching Smart Documentation, we’ve received a variety of questions about this toolset. So, we’ve decided to hold 3 specialized webinars in September: one geared toward architects, one for structural engineers, and one for MEP engineers.
In those webinars, we’ll show how you can generate 2D documentation from 3D models better, faster, and easier in Revit using Smart Documentation in each of those disciplines.
AGACAD, the developer of advanced technologies for building information modelling and management, is proud to introduce the first comprehensive BIM software for simplifying and automating the preparation of documents and drawings from Autodesk Revit models.
The new “Smart Documentation” toolset is the latest addition to AGACAD’s popular range of Revit productivity plugins and BIM solutions. It is intended for architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, prefabricators and everyone in the building industry with responsibility for documentation.
“In fabrication and construction, everything hinges on the documentation. Building designers above all need to create drawings, schedules and so on. Most do so inefficiently, adding views and annotations one by one, losing a lot of time and risking errors. We developed Smart Documentation to fill the project documentation gaps in Revit, generating content quickly and accurately, at times replacing hours of drafting with just a few clicks,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the Managing Director of AGACAD.
