RAS ManagerOur team knows that it makes a lot of sense for the names and numbers of spaces in the architect’s model to match the room names and numbers in the Autodesk® Revit® MEP software. Moreover, if there are hundreds of rooms it can take way too long to type in each one. That is why we suggest Revit users to use an additional productivity-boosting tool for the Autodesk Revit software named RAS Manager.

Today I would like to show you a way how to match room numbers from the architect’s model to the Revit MEP model spaces. This example will help you to solve a problem if you can copy the room names but the numbers don’t seem to work.

Design of ventilation systems in Autodesk Revit is easy and fast. However, we have developed a brilliant solution to improve this process.

This video presents T4R (Tools 4 Revit) solution Smart Diffusers which allows you to perform a lot of different functions:

• distribute air terminals in selected Spaces;
• add engineering data to Air Terminals (Duct Fittings, Duct Accessories and Mechanical Equipment);
• add to families unlimited number of engineering parametric equations which define relations between main HVAC parameters like Pressure Drop, Sound Power Level, Air Flow, Velocity, Throw, Duct Diameter, Free area and other;

We would like to encourage all our current customers as well as new ones to sign up for our newsletter and receive information on updates of BIM solutions and extensions for Revit®, new software releases, upcoming events or ongoing projects. That is the best way to keep your software up to date.

Also, Revit users who own our software from now on will see an exclamation mark which appears on the icon (see below). It means that a new update has been released and available to download. When they click on the mark they will be redirected to our download page.

In case of bad network connection or firewall, or spam fillers, exclamation mark might not appear on the icon even a new tools4revit product update is available. I would recommend you once per month to visit our download page and check your current version.

Today I will try to answer some common questions asked by Revit MEP users. Here are a few examples of questions that we receive from time to time:

Question #1: It sees on the web page that Cut Opening Pro Supports IFC Ducts and Pipes, but is it Supporting IFC Ducts, Pipes and Cable, coming from (Made by) AutoCAD Architecture, and MagiCAD as application for pipes and Cable? I’m in a big mess with many holes for Ducts, Pipes and Cable to cut out into buildings, I while use a very long time to do this manually for every Ducts, Pipes and Cable.

Question #2: I have received a file from a MEP user that I want to make cutouts for in the structural Revit model. However he is providing his model in the IFC format that I have opened in Revit and saved as a Revit-file. Is it in any way possible to use your software, Cut Opening, in this instance? It seems as if the IFC-geometry defaults to generic models in the Revit-version and I guess “Cut Opening” can’t use this?

Yes, I want to tell you that using BIM solution for Revit Cut Opening Pro you can create openings around Pipes, Ducts, Cable Trays and Conduits that come from IFC file format. Please find the steps below those describe how to cut openings according to IFC:

Smart-floors (Custom)Smart Floors is a powerful Autodesk® Revit® Architecture/Structure extension for reinforced floor panel insertion and modification. Modeling of prestressed concrete flooring systems is a very accurate and easi design process using this Revit add-on. Smart Floors modifies offsets and position of concrete floor panels and inserts holes into structural floor systems. Today we offer to use the updated extension for Autodesk Revit: Smart Floors now is more convenient and has more possibilities to create presstressed concrete floor system in Revit.

Smart Diffusers-engineering data ventilation system-1Probably the most HVAC designers’ dream is faster and more convenient ventilation system design. Already Autodesk® Revit® accelerates the work flow but not in all design stages. We offer you a simple tool that will help you quickly choose the appropriate item for ventilation system from your library.

After establishment of element geometry it remains only to add necessary engineering information for this. Here our application Smart Diffusers for Autodesk Revit can be useful. Extension allows Revit MEP users to add unlimited number of engineering parametric equations into the MEP families. That defines relations between main HVAC parameters like Pressure Drop, Sound Power Level, Air Flow, Velocity, Throw, Duct Diameter, Free Area and other.

Sort-mark (Custom)tools4revit© product Sort Mark is maybe the best solution that allows to sort & mark Revit elements in different ways and add additional information to the selected ones. It is a productivity enhancing tool for Autodesk Revit, created under expectations of Revit users.

Not without a reason Sort Mark is becoming increasingly popular among Revit users.

Sort Mark is the Autodesk Revit add-on that allows you to easily sort and renumber any Revit graphical, architectural and structural element that has a “mark” value, including grids, doors, windows walls, etc. Also Sort Mark adds prefix and suffix to mark values, and removes all duplicate “mark” values in a selected category. This easy-to-use time saving tool enables to increase productivity on a day to day basis.

Sort Mark v2014.2 and v2013.3 – what’s new:
