DPR Model Slicer – A Free Revit Plug-In powered by DPR Construction

DPR Model Slicer is a free Revit plug-in which facilitates the creation of 3D Building sections from a Revit model. Inherently within Revit, the only way to separate a model by floor is to filter it by reference levels. Unfortunately, this often results in a product (shown below), where items modeled as multi-floor elements, such as walls or columns, become associated with only one floor despite occupying space on many floors.

During the construction coordination process, this can be a limitation, so it is often desired to have the building model separated into individual floors. DPR Model Slicer makes this process faster. The end result is a model which is sectioned by floors.

Update: Version 2 is now available!

New features in Version 2

  • 2012 Support
  • Metric Support
  • Updated category selections
  • Horizontal bound control (manually or by gridlines)
  • Additional export options and formats
  • Improved Performance

The Before and After images illustrate the power of the DPR Model Slicer on a typical Revit project. Use the link below to download your free version today.

Enlarge Before & After

DPR Model Slicer was designed, not only to make the creation of these sections easier, but also to allow you to quickly repeat the process on other projects or versions of the model.

There are two main parts of any 3D building section in DPR Model Slicer:

  1. 3D Section Box: Defines the top, bottom, east, and west bounds of the section. Typically corresponds to a building level and gridlines.
  2. Visibility Settings: Defines the visibility settings for the section (what objects are shown in that view)

By combining any combination of these two settings, all of the requested 3D sections can be created.

Below is a list of helpul tips related to common tasks while using DPR Model Slicer.
