Content Admin Kit

Content Admin Kit

Added a set of new content administration tools to the Pro-Revit Tools. The idea behind the new Content Admin Kit is being able to finally take parameter values from one object category and place into a new/existing parameter in a different object category. A lot of us have been wanting to schedule certain parameters from different object categories in a schedule but couldn’t because of this limitation. The barrier has been broken down with our new Content Admin Kit but we have included a few extra tools that you will also find handy.

Shared Parameter Manager – Displays a dialog, where users can review, add and delete shared parameters to their shared parameter file.
Parameter Manager – Tool to manage parameters in project and family file.
•In project file you can import one or more shared parameters and apply it to multiple categories.
•In family file you can manage parameter properties for many parameters (e.g. change the parameter from instance to type, delete parameters, …) or import one or more shared parameters from parameter file.
•The tool allows you to export parameter definitions to *.json file which you can import to different family file (the tool creates all the parameters from *.json file).
Manage Calculated ParametersSee in Action – Tool where you can define rules to update parameters. E.g. you can define a rule, that runs on all the doors, finds out what Fire Rating parameter of it’s host is, then set the value back to door instance. Video: Floor Area TagVideo: Renumbering Doors in a Sequence. – Fire RatingDuct Length
Update Calculated Parameters – Tool which runs all the chosen rules against the model.
Update Category – Tool to set category for all families (RFA files) in chosen folder.
BIM Content – Place some of your favorite Revit Families quickly into a project.
Manage Families – Build a folder and sub-folders of where you would find some of your favorite Revit families. Works with the BIM Content tool.

Pro-Revit Tools

BIM Manager

The BIM Manager tools enable a user to manage their content. The tool set includes best seller, BIM Query, which is an advanced spreadsheet parameter editor for Revit instances and types. It also includes functionality like Importing or Exporting families, managing materials, sheets and views.

BIM Query – See in ActionThis tool enables the user to quickly edit Type and Instance properties for selected Categories. The user can edit properties with a built-in spreadsheet editor or save and open in MS Excel. Once the Excel file is updated, you can load it back and apply the changes to Revit model. The built-in spreadsheet editor includes MS Excel functionality for sorting or filtering parameters. Save your filters of the data to use again in other projects. You can also import/export the filters to share with staff. Productivity tools available in the editor include:

•copy & paste parameter values
•drag cell values where the tool auto increments values
•select Material with drop-down control
•use units for length input (e.g. 1m, 1′ 2 1/256″)
•create new sheets – See in Action

Folder Tool – See in ActionOpens project location in Windows Explorer.

Multi Type Editor – See in ActionMulti Type Editor displays a tree of elements in a project, which can be edited, changed and arranged at the same time.

Export – See in ActionWith Export the user can export families into a personal library on their computer. The user can choose one, multiple or all families and export them from the current project.

Import – See in ActionImports selected families from multiple folders. Along with a search tool to help find a certain family.

Project Cleanup – See in ActionSelect Materials, Rooms, Areas, Spaces, Views, Line Styles, Line Patterns, Fill Patterns, Dimension Overrides, and Text Types to delete in the project. Settings can be stored in the database for later use (on other project).

Analysis

This tool set can analyze selected geometry and store calculated values in shared parameter. Tools include dimensions, door swing analysis and room lighting calculations.

Update – Updates shared parameter values for all instances that were updated with one of the Analyze tools.

Insertion Location – Creates shared parameter with insertion point (bottom and top) for the selected element.

Thickness – Creates shared parameter with element thickness and elevation for selected element.

Room Lighting – Calculates ratio between room area and sum of window areas for the room.

Door Swing – Define default swing direction for Door families and calculate swing direction for all Door instances.

Annotate

Annotation tools include text alignment and automated legend creation. Users can generate a graphical legend of various elements in just a few steps with Legend by Category tool.

Import SpreadsheetSee in Action – Imports spreadsheet (XLS, XLSX) as Revit schedule. If spread sheet has more than one tab you select which one to import. You can also use the update feature to update an existing imported spread sheet.

Legend by Category – See in ActionCreates table with preview for elements in project with selected category. Has to be run in LEGEND VIEW with at least one LEGEND COMPONENT in it. Legend by Category will generate graphical schedules for various elements in just a few steps. Users can create a legend for windows, doors, furniture, walls, roofs, elements of installation, etc. The user has control of the appearance of the table including which parameters to be included and the order they are listed in the table. The ability to quickly create custom legends is very useful for organizing information and coordinating with manufacturers.

Material Legend – Creates material legend for selected view. Has to be run in empty DRAFTING VIEW. Individual modeling of our regions for material legends takes a certain amount of time that could be used more productively. Using our Material Legend tool you can generate a legend of all materials at the same time in just a few steps.

Align Text – See in ActionAligns text on different sides and in different points. You have to select one TEXT NOTE or LABEL and one DETAIL or MODEL LINE. The Align Text tool is used for aligning text according to selected elements. The tools are useful when editing your annotation tags, this way you can be sure everything is aligned properly.

Simple Align – Aligns text on any of four sides. You have to select one TEXT NOTE or LABEL and one DETAIL or MODEL LINE. Simple Align tool is used for aligning text according to selected elements. The tools are useful when editing your annotation tags, this way you can be sure everything is aligned properly.

Renumber by RoomSee in Action – Tool to mark instances (Door, Window, Furniture, …) based on room number and sequential character (letter or number).

Renumber Mark ParameterSee in Action – Tool to update mark parameter for instances according to chosen settings in the order the instances are picked in the model.

Renumber Room, Space or AreaSee in Action – Tool to update number parameter for room, space or area according to chosen settings in the order the instances are picked in the model.
