General Usage Instructions
Workflow of product and how it fits into user’s workflow.
The BOM for Revit plugin fits into your design and modeling workflow from the very beginning. As soon as you start creating Revit content, you can place it into a schedule, and the BOM plugin will work. Here are the steps:
- Start Revit and open a new or existing project.
- Create a Schedule or multiple schedules.
- Click BOM Plugin from the Plugin Ribbon and Menu.
- The Revit schedules will automatically populate in the upper left pane.
- Click the Revit schedule you want to include in the BOM (upper left pane) highlighted in blue.
- Configure the BOM format you desire using the lower left pane WYSIWYG tools.
- As you make configuration changes, you can preview them instantly in the upper and lower right panes.
- Each BOM schedule you save, will become a new tab in the BOM for Revit plugin.
- Select a new Revit schedule in the upper left, and then repeat the steps to configure a new BOM schedule and Save
- Once all BOM schedules are complete, you can export to Excel using the BOM tab by clicking the Export to Excel link
- As the Revit model is updated, the BOM for Revit data is updated automatically. Export the Excel file again for each new version of the Excel BOM output. The Excel file will not be updated until you click the Export link.
- Close and Restart – If you close Revit after having saved changes, then when you open Revit again (and you own the Plugin), your previous settings will be retained. No need to reconfigure the BOM schedule again.
