POWERFUL FEATURES
for efficient document generation & management

Discover a better and faster way of working in Autodesk Revit. This toolset plugin saves you lots of time on tasks that can be done automatically.

Views

  • Automates manual work by setting predefined configurations. Creates a configuration XML type file, stored at your set location for using in future Revit projects or sharing with other Revit users. Lets you use multiple configuration types for different purposes. Crops views to element size.
  • View template selection in Smart Views configuration determines what must be visible in created view.
  • Automatically creates views for selected elements that are fully measured and tagged according to settings.
  • Renames views based on configurations.
  • Creates multiple views for elements based on the selection boundary.
  • Distributes created view drawings on sheets according to your configurations.

Assembly Views

  • Creates Assemblies with corresponding element drafting views for walls, structural walls, structural framing, columns, beams, foundations, and rebar hosting elements.
  • Dimensions elements selected in a view. Distinguishes what must be measured, where to snap for dimensioning strings, and location of measurement lines. Option to add notes.
  • Automatically adds all host elements to the assembly.
  • Creates gravity point (center of gravity).
  • Automates manual work, setting predefined configurations. Creates a configuration XML type file, stored at your set location for using in future Revit projects or sharing with other Revit users. Configuration Files Location selection allows you to use multiple configuration types for different purposes in your project.
  • View template selection in Smart Views configuration determines what must be visible in created view.
  • Creates different schedules according to schedule templates automatically.
  • Creates dimensions and tags with notes in selected views automatically.
  • Automatically places created views, legends, schedules on sheets according to Sheet Template selection.
  • Adjusts view rotation, assembly alignment, and section position in a view.

Predefined Dimensions

  • Apply dimensioning rules to any Revit view or selected elements in a view.
  • Dimensions selected elements in a view. Distinguishes what must be measured, where to snap for dimensioning strings, and location of measurement lines. Option to add notes.
  • Measures Linked elements from linked models.
  • Filtering provides flexibility for dimensioning in Revit.
  • Options to join selected dimension lines.

Quick Dimensions

  • Automatically adds dimensions and dimension chains based on predefined configurations for architectural, structural, or mechanical element categories.
  • Dimensioning automatization is available in elevations, plans, and sections.
  • Create rule-based wall dimension chains, including grid lines, intersecting walls, openings, and corners to represent plan views.
  • Creates several dimension chains for different references in just a couple of clicks.
  • Joins separate dimensions into a dimension chain.
  • Places dimensions on fixed offset from elements and fixed distance between dimension chains.

Numbering & Tags

  • Automatically tracks positions of grid lines and logically renumbers them.
  • Combine different parameter segments to create a specific mark.
  • Create new or select existing parameters to determine and enter door swing direction right away.
  • Apply real coordinate or elevation height values for elements of any category.
  • Element marks, numbers, or any other parameter values can be used for tagging smartly by filtering elements and avoiding tag overlaps.
  • Apply any tag type and positioning to selected view automatically.
  • Design tags along with dimensions in view.

Images

  • Generate unique QR/Barcodes for every element category to carry information associated with it. Element category can be filtered to choose certain elements from the category.
  • Create different sizes of QR/Barcodes, which will be saved on your workstation.
  • Makes automatic rebar images containing rebar segment values according to Rebar Image Configuration.

Legends & Data

  • Tables, such as technical specifications or element information sheets, can be automatically created in drafting views.
  • Flexible rule options let you manipulate legends in many ways.
  • Option to show one or more views of objects in legends.
  • Possible to insert realistic element images in legends.
  • Easily create both vertically and horizontally listed legends.
  • Combine different family categories into one legend, for example, doors and windows.
  • Automatically splits legends into several pages.
  • Features can be applied to linked projects.
  • Import MS Excel spreadsheets into Revit projects, including style settings. Optionally, apply Revit style settings, and distribute across sheets in Revit.
  • Track changes automatically and update spreadsheets accordingly.

Sheets

  • Create and control a large number of sheets with a high level of automation.
  • Automatically fill-in stamp information.
  • Use the same view positions, graphics, crop information, and scale for the same type of sheets in a project.
  • Add new views and manage distribution on the sheets.
  • Quickly updates sheet parameters and replaces views, legends, and schedules with new ones.

Both standalone and network license types of software licenses are available.
