Documentation for the Revit Extensions for Revit Structure - The Revit Clinic

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/06/documentation-for-the-revit-extensions-for-revit-structure.html

As a Subscription Customer you have access to some additional Revit tools and documentation; in this post I'm referring to the Revit Extensions for Revit Structure. I've seen quite a few customers with two main issues: where to find them and how to use them.

First, where to find them:

  1. You'll need to log into your Subscription Account at http://www.autodesk.com/subscriptionlogin.
  2. Once logged in, click the Downloads link on the left viewing pane.
  3. Then click Product Enhancements to see the available tools for your account.

    Sub Downloads

Now that you have the tools installed, how do you use them? I've organized a couple of key places where you can find more information about the Revit Structure Extensions for Revit:

  • Extensions4Revit: http://www.extensions4revit.com/n/e4r
  • The Extensions for Revit section of BIM & BEAM, a blog written by Autodesk Employees Wai Chu, Nicolas Magnon, and Brian Haines: http://bimandbeam.typepad.com/bim_beam/extensions_for_revit/
  • Autodesk University Online Class Materials: http://au.autodesk.com. If you log in and go to the Online Classes tab, you can search for the Keyword Extension in the Structural Design and Engineering track to see a list of the courses available. There are quite a few, for example: Maximize the Use of Autodesk Revit Structure Extensions and Concrete Reinforcement with Autodesk Revit Structure and Robot Structural Analysis.


  • And lastly, within the Extension tool itself. You can right click on any Extension tool and select Info for more information on how it works.

I hope this information helps! Please feel free to share any other good places you've found as well!

For more information on the Subscription program, you can take a look at one of Harlan's previous posts, The Power of Subscription.
