Question: “Do you have something similar to Autodesk’s Roombook tool that can find all Revit categories?”

Answer: Yes. BIM Navigator lets you do everything Roombook does and more.

Although Roombook is a really nice tool, from my point of view it’s not finished yet. For example, it’s strange that you can’t select all Revit categories that are in your Revit model.

Take a look at the categories Roombook allows you to schedule:


There are many more Revit categories that ought to be included in a Roombook table like the one above. This is where BIM Navigator comes in handy.

With BIM Navigator, we can insert all Revit categories into a schedule, review all elements, take a look at those elements directly in the Revit model, and export all the data of those elements to Excel!

Take a look at this short video to see the workflow using BIM Navigator.


So, if you're already using BIM Navigator, now you know how to use it to grab all the Revit categories contained in your model.
