Setout Point Coordinate

From the Autodesk App Store...

This App allows the scheduling of X, Y, and Z coordinates of any given point of a site, project, building, an object or an element.

You place instances of a “Setout Point Marker” family to the points where the coordinates should be exported and scheduled. This family definition contains shared parameters to hold the data required for scheduling.

The app will then automatically extract the relevant X, Y & Z coordinates of given points from the model and populate the “Setout Point Marker” families parameters with the value. They can be formatted and placed on a drawing sheet.










This app provides a 15 days trial period with full functionality.

About This Version
Version 1.0.1, 1/20/2016
Updated release

The Setout Point Coordinate add-in is brought to you by Theptech. The price was not known at time of publication. There's more information available on the Autodesk App Store.

MEP Pipeline Tools Add-in for Revit

From the Autodesk App Store...

This application is useful when you need to modify Pipes, Ducts and Cable tray systems.

You can save a huge amount of time when working on large projects as it will help with the modification of the elevation, splitting and breaking of elements.

Deleting of Tee fittings is also very flexible and it helps to reduce the rework.

This application provides a set of tools to modify the properties of the pipeline, automatically connect the pipes, and other tools.

For example:
  • Configuration piping system type and Mech system type info. You can add, modify, and delete system type info.
  • User picks 2 point, and then modifies all these pipe elevation (or dn, width, height) to avoid collision.
  • User selects pipes, and then links these with fitting (Elbow, Tee, and cross). Pick 2 Point, link 2 pipes with fitting and create vertical pipe.
  • User selects multiple Pipes, Split Pipes every N meters.
  • User picks 2 point, break this pipeline...


The ribbon panel

Modify Elev: Pick 2 points, then modify all these pipe elevations

Modify Dn: Pick 2 points, then modify all these pipe dn or width, height
 
Pick 2 points, break pipe

del fitting, merge pipe

Our app will continue to develop.

About This Version
Version 1.0.0, 1/18/2016
Initial release.

The MEP Pipeline Tools add-in is brought to you by Revit Studio and is priced at 2.00 USD. There's more information available on the Autodesk App Store.

Import Plate Reinforcement from Robot Add-in for Revit

From the Autodesk App Store...

The application performs the import of theoretical reinforcement plates from Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis and allows controlling the actual layout of reinforcement.

User work process:
  • selects the necessary floors (walls);
  • performs the import of theoretical reinforcement from program Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis;
  • monitors the actual layout of reinforcement made standard tool “Reinforcement area”.

The work process creates two specialized views: "Reinforcement from Robot “and” Check reinforcement.”

The results of import are displayed on this data views as color contour plots.






The application update the results dynamically when user makes changes in the areas of reinforcement plates.

This application facilitates and accelerates the process of reinforcement of floors and walls.

In the case of the trial version the results are display for only one layer of reinforcement plate.
