Excitech Revit Toolkit ~ Creating a Link Between Revit 2010 and Trimble Robotic to Utilize BIm Functionality #AU2010 #BIM

William, this one is for you...

I'm sitting in the middle of a really cool class at AU and the teacher recommended this great free toolkit for you to use.  This sort of stuff is amazing as to the accuracy that you can get for construction.  Not only that, the time and labor savings are incredible.  You can go from 3 people to 1 person and layout out field points in half the time.  That's the ROI of BIM technology.


Excitech Revit Toolkit

The Excitech Revit Toolkit is a new set of utilities developed and published by Excitech to enhance the benefits you get from Revit technology.
The toolkit contains a modular installation utility that makes additional utilities easy to add in and manage.
The first tool released is for Coordinate Scheduling.

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 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) although a Revit 2011 version is currently in development.

To maintain the accuracy of the coordinates the Excitech Revit Coordinate Scheduling Tool has the following built-in checks
which will prompt the user when performing one of the below operations.
  • Viewing Schedule Tables
  • Printing
  • Saving Documents
  • Saving As
  • Opening a document
  • Exporting a file
  • Closing Documents
  • Synchronising with the Central File
