U-Value image

Overall heat transfer coefficient for simple constructions of building envelope could be calculated straightly in Autodesk® Revit®, but what to do if you have more complex constructions with profiles or air layers. The answer is easy – use U-Value solution from Tools 4 Revit!

U-Value is useful Autodesk® Revit® Architecture/MEP extension that calculates overall heat transfer coefficient (U-Value) for walls, floors, roofs, ceilings and foundation slabs. This BIM tool has a possibility to identify the heat flow direction. According to this direction the external and internal thermal resistance differs. This material automatically detects thermal insulation layer and its thickness and adds the profiles into this part of the construction:

Many of our MEP Engineering Pro modules and some Tools 4 Revit apps have been already updated for Revit 2015! R-Heating, Smart Hangers, Smart Sprinklers, U-Value and Building Energy are compatible with the latest Autodesk Revit version. BIM solutions for HVAC or fire protection system design allow you to create optimal indoor climate projects and low-energy buildings.

As you know, our newest software Smart Assemblies and some of Wood Framing Pro modules Truss+ RT and Rafter+ fit for Revit 2015 now. And the last week Tools 4 Revit team released more BIM solutions, compatible with Autodesk Revit 2015. I'm talking about two BIM solutions that are already compatible with Revit 2015!

We have released new version 2015.1 of Cut Opening Pro BIM software that automatically creates openings around the ducts, pipes, cable trays and conduits in walls, floors, ceilings or roofs.

Also another useful solution Insert Elements is compatible with Autodesk Revit 2015 now. Insert Elements quickly inserts architectural, structural, mechanical elements into predefined positions that are logically related with other objects. We have released Insert Elements v2015.1 single and network licenses, so now designers who work in small or big design companies can use this new version of Insert Elements.

text leaf iconOur development team has decided to make some changes in 'Tools 4 Revit' product group. They made a decision that extension for Revit® Quick Table that automatically inserts any external data from doc/txt/xls and creates/updates tables in Revit® drafting view will not be developed for Revit 2015. Its features were moved to another Revit app Excel2R which became a very popular T4R ('Tools 4 Revit' group) product. Excel2R imports Excel data to Revit projects with spreadsheets design settings but it also allows to import MS Word text, so Excel2R features replace all Quick Table functionality.

This change of T4R products is well understandable for our team, but not for our clients as I can see. Some days ago I received a question from one of them: “I was wondering there was a way to use Quick Table for importing a word document and have it look like the format in the attached file. Or do you have another program that could meet this need."

In such case I recommend to use our extension for Revit Excel2R. In this blog post I'll shortly explain how to import text information from text document to Revit project.

Every structural engineer who uses Autodesk® Revit® knows very well that using plain Revit software preparation of shop drawings takes outrageous time inputs. Therefore BIM solution Smart Assemblies that is created by our team is so popular.

We already have quite a lot of clients who have chosen this software for their daily work. Also there are many trial version testers, who ask us how to increase their work speed and quality. As an example I can provide you a question from one client that was received few days ago:

“I know that you guys made a change to the plugin to allow counting of multiple instances of assemblies, but I haven’t been able to get it to work correctly.”
