Revit Extended

If your working with Revit and finding a few minor items you would like to add or automate to your suite of tools then chances are favorable that through the Revit API this could be accomplished.

I mention this because over the past few years since the Revit API was released our development team has been actively developing tools, both large and small and today we are releasing the first round of free public tools for you to use. These tools come from requests by our Revit implementation/services team, trainers and of course folks just like you.

So without further typing here are todays 5 Free Revit Utilities:

Room Renumbering - allows you to renumber or insert rooms in a sequence

Door Mark Update - to make the door mark match the room it swings into

Change Case - for those who would like to keep a common theme/style on items like view and room names UPPER CASE, lower case and Title Case

Revit Content Browser - this tools will open up inside your revit environment and allow you to download content directly from popular industry locations. The main window currently goes to RevitCity for this release and allows you to review the content you would like and organize it by name and folder location when you download.

Earth Connector - a new update to an existing toolset that now allows you to now work with 4D (time and phasing) from Revit for use in Google Earth.

These work for the Revit 2008 suite of products (Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP) and have been tested on Windows XP and Vista.

Take a moment to download and use, for any feedback send an e-mail to: devfeedback (at)

Matt has spent a good bit of time working on these and I appreciate him leading this charge, the next round of tools are under development now. If you have a particular tool or need for Revit development please let us know how we can help.

A press release of these tools is available here.

Viva La Revitlution... :)

Love the new tools. Another usefl tool would highlight everything in a view that was created with the linework tool.
