Would you like to work faster in Revit® and spend less time on non-creative tasks? I guess that many Revit users would answer yes to this question as everyone usually strives to be more efficient. Time-saving on various repetitive tasks is one of the biggest headaches when it comes to BIM modeling and completing a lot of steps manually, since usually it takes a lot of time that could be used for other, equally or even more important assignments. Furthermore, the chances of making mistakes by missing important details are not the ones we want to take.

Automatized functions and add-ons make our modeling process much smoother and faster, so luckily, AGACAD team has developed a brilliant extension for Revit - Smart Select. Time-saving and completely free of charge tool for architects, structural engineers and MEP engineers that allows users to select desired elements automatically by user configured parameters in just a few clicks.

This tool can select elements in any room or space by:

  • category
  • family
  • one of family types.

MEP engineers can use this extension to select pipe or duct network from user’s chosen duct or pipe.

The network can be selected:

  • with equipment;
  • without equipment;
  • only the network equipment.

Finally, users have a possibility to select elements by predefined filter configuration. On the right side of the dialog, we can configure the filter according to our needs. After “Refresh Filter Data” is selected, we can choose elements for our selection on the left side of the dialog, where the elements are conveniently grouped into a tree.

Furthermore, for our own convenience, we can save the configured filter and use it later on. To do that, we need to select “Save to File”, and then, we can use this filter by selecting “Load from File”.

As you can see, Smart Select is a powerful tool which:

  • saves time by selecting elements automatically according to user’s needs;
  • prevents errors by automating the selection process;
  • is easy to use, as any amount of elements can be selected in just a few clicks;
  • is completely free of charge!

So don’t hesitate and experience the benefits of Smart Select by trying this powerful tool in your modeling process. Smart Select license and upgrades are completely free, as the add-on is developed, endorsed and sponsored by AGACAD.
