Avatech Revit Utilities

Another little gem found in the AUGI forums - Revit Extensions

Avatech’s Revit Utilities for Autodesk Revit 2008 have developed a variety of applications, namely...
  • Room Renumber
    This utility allows a Revit Architecture user to easily renumber existing rooms into an order defined by selection. In addition, rooms can be inserted into an existing series of rooms with the subsequent room numbers “shifted” to make space for the inserted room number.
  • Change Case
    Does your company (or your client) have standards or preferences on whether rooms or views are named with UPPER CASE, Title Case or lower case? If so, this tool will save you lots of time! The tool can scan your model, and automatically fix “case issues” to whatever standard you would like.
  • Door Mark Update
    Should your Door Marks refer to the room that the door swings into? This utility interrogates all doors and rooms to determine what the proper mark should be for each door, allows the Revit Architecture user to inspect and override the suggested marks, and updates the marks.

So far, whilst I've installed all 3 extensions, I've only used the "change case" utility with no dramas... A little bit limiting with only Rooms Names or View Names able to be changed but its a step in the right direction. I may just have to take a look at the API as well - time to learn a new language!
