COINS Auto-Section Box tool for Revit now available for download

Thanks to Bryan for finding this at http://revitaddons.blogspot.com/2013/04/free-coins-auto-section-box-gets-major.html

It kills me to see people who say they do BIM, but they don't include any 3D sections on their plans.  What's the point of modeling everything in 3D if you don't share the visuals of how the building gets put together.  Are these the same people who don't share their models?  

Here's a great free tool to make 3D sections quickly:


COINS Auto-Section Box

The COINS Auto-Section Box tool gives you tremendous speed and agility over managing three-dimensional views when analyzing model areas of particular interest. It allows you to quickly create temporary and permanent views to be used for immediate interrogation of the model or for construction document deliverables. This works by allowing you to focus on the model instead of managing views or a view’s properties.

New features:
  •  Support for Revit 2014
  •  New "Toggle Section Box" command
  •  Ability to arrange the section box view side-by-side with the selected view
  •  Support for creating section boxes from view outlines, section lines, and scope boxes
  •  New "Quick Auto-Section" command
  •  Worry-free selections - automatic filtering of 2d and datum elements
