HingePoint’s BOM to Excel for Revit app was recently reviewed on a blog in France. We translated it below for you. The original story was posted here.
Some interesting Revit applications
The Autodesk App Store offers a lot of useful Revit applications. In this article I will list all the applications that I have found useful and will indicate why.
HOT GEAR PROJECT
The first application that caught my attention is the implementation parameter explorer Hot Gear Project, which offers nice features in terms of handling the elements parameters. This application will allow you to filter your selections based on elements of settings and change the element parameters filtered group. Two very interesting operations are possible with this application, it is particularly intercommunication between this application and excel, especially the visualization of your project by coloring the surface of the elements according to parameters.
Look at the example below Example quite telling.
This application will allow first filter and select items by choosing to handle their instance parameter or type parameter: the field can increase on Revit. Other features are offered by this application, including the handling of join between walls and all the functions that used to group sets of elements.
APPS OF THE BIMCODER
The app store Autodesk offers a number of interesting applications that extend the capabilities of Revit. I suggest you find one developed by Bimcoder, which are quite helpful and make the use of REVIT easier in some aspects.
There is first the application Auto Floors Builder, which automatically generate tiles and flooring by taking limits as beams and columns. It’s a pretty useful application and not save some time for the representation of floors at different levels.
Bimcoder also developed an application that meets all the right features for intercommunication between REVIT and Excel, it is the application: ScheduleSync Pro. As the name suggests, the nomenclature are exploitable with this application in Excel.
Another useful application is Curtain Modeler, this application makes the implementation of curtain wall much more intuitive.
Two Application for REVIT MEP exist and have some utility, first Align Duct, and allows on relives map align the pipe without much effort from their oubien axis relative to their external generator, and on the other hand the application auto-insulation creator, which enables to apply to pipelines of fast and mass insulation sheaths.
A last application that is called switch next order which is quite useful for defining forms of connection, especially between pole / beam / slab.
In addition to the applications developed within the app store Autodesk, bimcoder demonstrate detailed understanding of specific development Revit, and work of reference clients.
To discover applications, visit the site app store Autodesk their section.
Here is an application developed by HingePoint, an expert company in Bim Texas-based, technically sound and very promising in terms of customers it already has! Hingepoint which are authorized Autodesk developers, developed a super BOM Application to EXCEL
BOM to Excel is an application that will automatically create material lists from your Revit models and exports and formats BOMs reports, estimates and statements of quantities to Excel. Finally, you can add cost parameters in Revit and get estimates and quotes, snapshots and costs.
BOM to Excel is full of small features that allow you to operate both powerful and Excel like grouping paintings by elements of property. BOM to Excel is advisable, and HingePoint have a future. To download BOM to Excel, we must go to the application page on the app store.
APPS OF THE DZ Studio!
Revision Cloud Manager is a great application to generate a chart the history list of changes that have been identified by revision clouds.
Better than that, it can manage in a table the review comments.
This is an application to put order in your revision history. This application allows you to therefore create a schedule that is not natively offered on Revit and especially the export to excel.
DZ studio also offers other applications as “User Editing History” which allows for example to be able to list the history of your operations. This application allows also to perform such operations filtering on your history.
On the space for DZ studio on the app store Revit you will be able to download test versions and also offers free applications such application “End User Wizard”.
DZ Studio applications are the work of a designer architecture, a high sensitivity to architectural formal language and polymorphisms.
WebGL-Publisher Export for Autodesk® Revit®

The tool is developed by German specialists top flight cad and webgl: CADMAI Software GmbH.

The 3 applications Scope Box Purge, Scope Box synchronizer and Scope Box Reorder.
They are available on the app store REVIT.

Similar to the functionality integrated Copy / Monitor, but in areas of definition link revives.

Scope Box Purge: Finally in the proposed trio, an application to remove the areas of definitions that will not be used.
AVATAR BIM – QUICK PRINT

The functionality offered by this application are simple and high efficiency:
– Printing in 1 click.
– Printing schedules.
– Customize printing parameters.
– File suits to print.
While printing capabilities are natively on REVIT proposed well, this application increases the ergonomics of the print, or the point you can really print in 1 click.
This application is present in the app store saw.

Nothing like a video explanation of this application.
Here is the link to the application on the app store Autodesk.
