- Must have APP! - Carlos Vieira.
This tool gives much more value to the everyday work of any user of Revit. Truly recommend.
- Just what Revit Needs - Gareth Spencer.
Nice tool to have simple to use, easy to install. Allows the user to see the parameter data from the family, load into your project and even open the family editor. The only thing I would say when creating the dwf's it takes a little while if you have selected a lot of families, but other than that it’s a great tool.
