hangers for rectangular ductsMany Autodesk® Revit® users complain about manual duct splitting. We have developed the tool that can accelerate your design. Using our created Smart Hangers solution you can split any line based elements (ducts, pipes, cable trays, conduits) into segments according to your needs. Meanwhile the software is splitting your elements into individual segments; it also inserts the families in between them. That can help you to insert flanges or other required elements in your MEP system.

I will shortly introduce how to split your line based elements and insert you required joints there.

Missing some functionality-introIt is really important that our extensions for Autodesk® Revit® would be relevant to the Revit users' needs and interests especially of our current customers who have active Subscription. For this, we strive to react to our clients' wishes quite carefully.

Nonetheless, someday it may be a situation when you try to use some of our products and some functionality that you expect to see in the products may be missing. What do you need to do then? If there's anything missing, please let us know. Become a part of Tools 4 Revit development team! Your comments or questions are always welcome.

We understand that it does not matter how much functionality any of our applications has, it will not get any appreciations if it does not relate to particular Revit users' needs or concerns. Therefore, write us an e-mail with described situation or your wish, please. We constantly fill our clients' wish-list and use it when develop improvements and new versions of our products. This way is simply a progress in functionality.

Does it sound too good to be true? We can show you some examples from our experience:

Less than two months ago we released BIM solution Smart Assemblies for Autodesk® Revit® software. This application creates assemblies and corresponding views from selected architectural or structural elements and automatically generates shop drawings with required schedules and dimensions in views. “A sensational looking Revit plugin”, “well done” and other appreciations stimulate us to move forward. Therefore, we seek to be responsive to the needs of our customers.

When we got such a question “How to control element orientation in Assembly Front View?” from our client, seeing a demand for this feature we have added it to our Smart Assemblies version 2014.2.

Possibility to control family orientation in Assembly Front View is added like a new setting in Shop Drawing Configuration (SDC) dialog: “Align Assembly Front View orientation with Front View orientation in Family Editor”.

How to control Revit element orientation in assembly front view-1

This setting goes for family based elements (like Columns, Beams and Generic Models).

Thank you.
