Our technical team needs to check just a few more BIM solutions, and if bugs don’t rush us over, the newest versions’ preparations will be complete.

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 v2015.3 and v2014.4 – what's new:

AGACAD offers both network and standalone license types of software licenses. Software with standalone licensing allows users to install the software on a single workstation (1 license = 1 computer) without the need to be connected to a company network.

Network licensing helps software user to ensure his/her own access to the right product at the right time, and it enables easy and efficient control of software use. Another customer's benefit – the only fixed annual fee (valid for 12 months) is applied for a company but not per license.

Network license can be installed on as many computers as desired; however, at any one time, only the maximum number of computers, which is specified in the licenses, can run the software. The Network License Manager (NLM), installed on one or more servers, controls the distribution of particular product licenses to the users.

Based on our experience, AGACAD customers need to have the most effective licensing model to fit their operation rules. Therefore we improved the licensing models. Now AGACAD provides NLM Annual Service that enables current SLM licenses' migration to NLM licenses and vice versa.
