Christmas is but a few days away and we are now able to announce the new build of RevitXT for Revit 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013. It includes some new features and enhancements that will increase your productivity.
I mentioned in earlier “sneak peak” about the “Reload Families”tool. Simply put, this allows you to reload (over-ride) Families in the project or family editor environment . This tool will allow to refresh multiple Families to be reloaded in one hit. You will also be able to select a folder and get the tool to search any sub-folders for Families of the correct name – this is useful where you have lots of sub-folders for your library of custom Families. You can also choose to overwrite the graphics (just overwrite geometric changes) or overwrite both the geometry and apply any changes to parametric values.
Legend by category has been given a mild upgrade to include some nice options. You now have more options for the layout of the graphics of the Legend and can also select to have items in the Legend that are not in the model – a feature that was put in there after feedback from users.
Material Legends has been tweaked in a similar manner with the ability to include materials that are not in use in the project as well.
BIM / CAD Managers will also be happy to learn that there are options to install the software via a deployment as well as the ability to customise the installation of various tools in the suite.
I believe that next year will see even more exciting developments in RevitXT but in the meantime, don’t forget to download the latest build at: http://dl.cgsplus.com/f/7e77.
