Small & big design companies Using Smart Browser Manage users can select hundreds or thousands of Revit families and add tasks in one convenient dialog.

Smart Browser Manage features that you can apply to hundreds of selected families:

      • modify existing parameters: change values, rename parameters, and delete parameters;
      • add new shared parameters;
      • add new family parameters;
      • add new types, rename type names, and delete types;
      • standardize type names; rename family names, delete families; add, modify, and delete text formulas.

Afterwards, user needs to run the process and the tool will perform all the changes automatically: it will open every family, make changes and then save them to the current Revit version.

Testimonials

- Judy Staicer, Revit Specialist at Vanderweil Engineers, USA.
I was able to apply about 135 parameters to each of 14 air handling unit families in about half an hour. When I had to do this several weeks ago to these same families, I used an Autodesk tool that doesn’t work well at all but is still better than doing 135 parameters one at a time in each of 14 families. Using that Autodesk tool, it took me 6.5 hours to add these parameters. Using Smart Browser Pro it took only half an hour to set up the xml file and a few minutes for the parameters to be applied to the families. And the best part is that next time I have an air handling unit family, it will take mere minutes because the xml file with all the parameters is ready to go. This tool is a real time saver.
- Ben McKay, CAD System Manager at Wiley & Co, Australia.
I use Smart Browser Pro every day to modify our families. We have over 15,000+ families in our library and to look after them manually would be incredibly inefficient. The time savings I gained from using this product paid for its self in the first 2 weeks of use.
