Yesterday our company released a new build of our most popular Revit® plugin Excel2R that significantly speeds up project documentation process. This tool quickly imports MS Excel spreadsheets into Revit® projects, including style settings.
Excel2R is a great helper for Revit users, because data between Excel and Revit documents are linked, therefore tables constantly keep current information. But even a superior product can be improved. Over the past few months, we received several clients' requests to add some functionality such as:
“We create Excel files that need to be on multiple sheets, bringing them into a Legend will contribute to that, but even better, would be to bring it into a schedule, so that formatting can be controlled within Revit."
“Is it possible to have the excel file created in a Legend rather than a Drafting View? I have a need to place the excel file on multiple sheets, which I can do with a Legend."
As you know, AGACAD team always seeks to react to our client's wishes so Excel2R was upgraded including some new functionality and fixes for the text alignment.
Excel2R v2015.3 and v2014.4 – what's new:
1. In the newest Excel2R version we added a possibility to import MS Excel data to the existing Revit legend view:
2. Possibility to filter legend and drafting views in Manage Tables dialog:
3. Many improvements with text alignment. Now Excel2R makes imports from MS Excel more precisely.
You are welcome to download and try the new Excel2R version:
