Excitech Revit Toolkit for the Revit Platform

Lawrence Hooker ~ Revit Consultant for Excitech has announced the launch of the Excitech Revit Toolkit, on the technology4design blog.

The Excitech Revit Toolkit is a series of modular applications and extensions for the Revit 2010 Platform. The first extension addresses the scheduling of coordinates, with particular focus on creating piling schedules and is FREE to all.

This has been a major problem to anyone who needs to create a piling schedule, in the past having to rely on AutoCAD which takes the information out of the Revit environment and essentially creates an unconnected 2D drawing and schedule.


Coordinate Scheduling Tool

The FREE Excitech Revit Coordinate Scheduling application is a powerful tool for Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP that will enable users to automatically acquire precise X, Y and Z coordinates from certain Revit objects.

This allows users to more rapidly produce schedules of, for example, piling and services; as well as to publish coordinates for complex geometry across 3D space.

The coordinates are added to the objects element properties which will allow schedules to be generated and tags to be placed.

The application has been designed to publish X,Y and Z coordinates to selected object categories and store these within the objects instance properties.

The Revit Coordinate Scheduling tool is currently only available for the Revit 2010 platform and 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows XP and Vista although a 64-bit version is currently in
