Majority of Autodesk® Revit® users are experiencing a headache that is caused by the time consuming process of project documentation. Even though Revit has legend views, schedules, drafting views, etc., where you can create tables or plain texts with various information that reflect the project, it has some missing functionality as well.

We often get details about certain project parts from other specialists who are working with MS Excel. Of course, it is better and sometimes a must to have everything organized in one place. With that in mind, linking the spreadsheets in MS Excel to our Revit file and then, for example, having an ability to place them in sheets near Revit drawings sound like a great plan. Unfortunately, as you may already know, there is no rational way to do that with plain Revit. Luckily, there is a tool that can help. Excel2R is an excellent AGACAD tool that significantly speeds up project documentation process. This tool quickly imports MS Excel spreadsheets into Revit projects.

Projects can usually last for a long time and in the end of the projects you can feel your productivity decline. Even MEP engineers get the project when the deadline is NOW. It is normal and usual problem for big projects. The projects become boring and it seems that everything is done but still you have to do documentation things. We have solutions to increase productivity in this case. We automated some documentation tasks that can increase your work productivity. So these tools can make you happy.

AGACAD has different productivity-boosting products but the most memorable and easy to use is little documentation tools. I will shortly introduce them from MEP Engineer’s perspective:

Everybody says BIM is something what we should strive for and 3D modeling is the next level etc. That’s cool, I like it – I agree with this opinion.

But what about reality – do you really think that you have reached the efficiency peak from the moment you started using Autodesk® Revit® Structure? Does Revit have everything you need? I say – no way!

Fighting with beam and wall joints, cut openings in every element manually, forget about excel sheets you used in your work and how about marking hundreds of your elements? There are a lot of small tasks which we have to do every day and they are pretty annoying. That’s why we develop additional tools to make your Revit experience less frustrating and more efficient.

Numbering elements, importing external data, making legend, adding dimensions, making & managing sheets and other element modeling and documentation tasks are main daily work headaches for each Autodesk® Revit® user. Do you know how to boost Revit model performance and simplify project documentation?

On the second week of June we are hosting webinars on all our inexpensive but very effective Revit apps’ overview for Architects, HVAC Engineers and Structural Engineers.

We kindly welcome you to join the corresponding session and see what productivity tools for Revit every Architect / Structural Engineer / MEP Engineer needs to have for performance of daily tasks. We’ll provide a short overview of productivity tools for Revit for each building designer’s workstation.

In these webinars for building designers you’ll see a short overview on our simple but highly efficient tools that increase design productivity when modeling buildings and preparing documentation. Below you can find a description of each webinar and registration links.

Yesterday our company released a new build of our most popular Revit® plugin Excel2R that significantly speeds up project documentation process. This tool quickly imports MS Excel spreadsheets into Revit® projects, including style settings.

Excel2R is a great helper for Revit users, because data between Excel and Revit documents are linked, therefore tables constantly keep current information. But even a superior product can be improved. Over the past few months, we received several clients' requests to add some functionality such as:

“We create Excel files that need to be on multiple sheets, bringing them into a Legend will contribute to that, but even better, would be to bring it into a schedule, so that formatting can be controlled within Revit."
or
“Is it possible to have the excel file created in a Legend rather than a Drafting View? I have a need to place the excel file on multiple sheets, which I can do with a Legend."

As you know, AGACAD team always seeks to react to our client's wishes so Excel2R was upgraded including some new functionality and fixes for the text alignment.

Excel2R v2015.2 and v2014.4 – what's new:

Thank you.
