The Week that was in Revit Add-ons for October 2-8, 2017

The week of October 2, 2017 was a slow one here on Revit Add-ons as we published eight posts.


From the Autodesk App Store, we posted about Element Information, which provides an element list by Category or selection, including parameter information. We also posted about the self-descriptive ElementsJoiner Lite and ElementsJoiner Pro.


For App Store updates, see our latest roundup.

From around the Internet, we posted about CL3VER’s new platform, which turns 3D models into interactive presentations with a single click, and about Revizto V4.5.

Roundup – For Oct 2-8, 2017, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The week of October 2, 2017 was an exceedingly quiet one for Revit add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Only a single new add-in was published and just one other was updated.

The free MEPContent Browser, for finding manufacturer-specific content, made its App Store debut, although we posted about it previously.

Roundup – For Sep 25 - Oct 1, 2017, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The week of September 25, 2017 was a fairly slow one with regards to Revit add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Two new add-ins were published and four were updated.

For the new add-ins, Element Information is for displaying a list of elements by category or selection along with Parameter information, and ElementsJoiner Lite is a limited app for creating junctions between architectural and structural elements.

About This Version: Version 1.0.0, 9/25/2017 Version 1.0.0, 9/26/2017 – Initial Release

Element Information – Element List by Category or Selection w/ Parameter Info

From the Autodesk App Store:

  • Easy to show element list by select or by category.
  • Easy to get all parameter information include custom parameter.

ElementsJoiner Pro

From the Autodesk App Store:

The application Element Joiner pro helps you to create different kind of junctions between architectural and structural elements automatically. It will clean up your presentation and have real quantifications of elements without errors

  • Join Elements (Walls, Floors, Structural Columns, beams, Roofs, Columns )
  • Unjoin Elements (Walls, Floors, Structural Columns, beams, Roofs, Columns)
  • Swish Join Elements (Walls, Floors, Structural Columns, beams, Roofs, Columns)

From the Autodesk App Store:

Element Joiner Lite is a Trial version of Element Joiner Pro. It helps you to create different kind of junctions between architectural and structural elements automatically for small projects with less than 135 beams, 135 walls, 45 columns

Poll Results: For What Other Products Should Revit Add-ons Cover Add-in Applications?

Last week we held polls seeking reader input on what other Autodesk products from the App Store we should cover add-ins for. We listed four Autodesk products, BIM 360, Autodesk Advance Steel, Vault, and 3ds Max. Unstated in our initial post, we listed them in order from "pretty much a no-brainer" (BIM 360) to "we don't really want to cover that" (3ds Max). The results pretty much shook out in the same order.

  • BIM 360 received a resounding "yes" vote by a ratio of 11:1.
  • Autodesk Advance Steel was a push at 1:1.
  • Vault was a "no" at a ratio of 1:3.
  • 3ds Max was a "no" at a ratio of 4:5 (whew!).

Accordingly, we're going to start covering add-ins for BIM 360. Also Autodesk Advance Steel, but at the lowest priority (relative to Revit, Navisworks, and BIM 360).

For those that participated, thank you!
