Revit Utilities Update

As you probably saw there has been a short hiatus from writing, mostly to avoid spilling the beans on the upcoming projects. That said one of those projects has just released an update for compatibility and new features within Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP 2009 available here.

New features include:

Room Renumber

  • Easily renumber existing rooms into an order defined by selection.
  • Insert rooms into an existing series of rooms with the subsequent room numbers “shifted” to make space for the inserted one.
  • NEW: Handle increments between room numbers.
  • * Version 1.1.3066

  • This tool scans your model and automatically fixes “case issues” to whatever standard you specify.
  • NEW: Support for new element/parameter combinations (Text Note Text, View Title on Sheet)
  • * Version 1.0.3032

  • We are also working on tweaks to a few more features within these (thanks to great user feedback). We are interested if you are hosting content on an intranet (for multiple offices) to work within our content browser above. Drop me an e-mail if you are interested in helping get this going.

    Shortly we will be unveiling another Revit application project that we think is different from anything else out there at moment.... :)

    Cheers and more writing soon, in the meantime feel free to follow my micro-blog on twitter.
