Smart SelectAGACAD has a nifty free add-on for Revit® called Smart Select. We invite all Revit users to download this free tool and see how it speeds up your tasks! It’s basically a multi-element, auto-selection tool that lets you quickly select elements in a room or space by category, family, or type. This is invaluable in cases when you need to, for instance, write room data to a certain type of element in a room because it eliminates repetitive and inaccurate manual selection.

With Smart Select, you can filter elements by room name or number and add needed parameters to all elements that belong to that room. The workflow looks like this:

  1. Download Smart Select
  2. Install Smart Select
  3. Filter Elements by Room Name or Number:

When working with Revit®, BIM professionals hope to complete the majority of tasks automatically and concentrate on creative instead of technical work. However, they often discover that modelling process requires more non-creative assignments than expected.

Fortunately, AGACAD tools for Revit save time and money by eliminating unnecessary BIM tasks, letting professionals focus on work that creates value. For example, letting architects to put their mind to creating, let’s say, window design and then generating their legend with lots of different information automatically in a few simple clicks, or letting MEP engineers use their valuable time on designing ducts and then cutting the holes in walls automatically, and so on.
