SETS Revit Add-ins

Southeastern Technical Services just released three new apps on the Revit Exchange App Store.

 

BIM Manager Tools

 

Room Cleanup: A quick and easy way to delete all unplaced rooms from the model.  Rooms are deleted immediately and a dialog will be displayed reporting the numbers that were deleted.

Area Cleanup: A quick and easy way to delete all unplaced areas from the model.  Areas are deleted immediately and a dialog will be displayed reporting the total numbers that were deleted.

Link Update: This command searches all elements in the model and checks if the parameters you specify contain the original path.  If the original path is found, it will be replaced with the new path.

Owner Standards Check

This app provides a tool to check the model for formatting compliance with company or owner standards.  The tool consists of Quick Checks – a series of basic checks for project information (file name, project name, project number, address) and Format Checks – more detailed review of model elements to ensure compliance with standard shared paramters, omniclass numbers, family naming, workset naming, floor plan names, and wall types.  The tool will genrate a report for each Format Check that can be exported to .csv format for review.

Code Compliance Tools

Rated Door: Scans the entire project for rated walls and displays a list of every door that is hosted inside of a rated wall.  The app will provide a report showing the door infornation (level, door type, room, and fire rating.)  The report can be exported to .csv format for review.

Damper: Scans the entire project for clashes between rated walls, ductwork and dampers.  This check must be run from the file that contains the ductwork and dampers.  If very few walls exist in the current project you will be prompted to select a linked file that contains walls. The app will provide a report of all dampers in the model as well as clashes between ductwork and rated walls.  The report can be exported to .csv format for review.
