Sort Mark XYZMany Autodesk® Revit® users face a problem in one of the last stages of a project. All elements in BIM model should have exact location in the project and the elements should be located in a real building accordingly. How to find this location in total station for layout in Revit? Users need at least X, Y, Z coordinates or in different language coordinates and elevations of any kind of elements.

We have created irreplaceable tool for search of any element coordinates and elevation. I will give you a short example of how to find Hanger’s elevation and coordinates using Sort Mark add-on from Tools 4 Revit.

Open Sort Mark and press Calculate elevation:

Choose required category:

Create new parameter which you want to modify (for example “Elevation”):

Choose the part of element Sort Mark should make calculations for:

How to find revit element elevation-5

This Revit extension will find all your elements and add the parameter with calculated elevation:
