Revit add-on Cut Opening manages the creation of openings where ducts, pipes, cable trays or conduits intersect walls, floors or ceilings. Application uses Revit® "Interference Check" results for opening creation.


"Outstanding tool. Made my day... 'cause it is easy to use and when I run the Interference check (either in Revit or Clash detective in Navis) saves time due to unnecessary clarifications and acceptance of these clashes.
Thanks for this tool that thinks about our needs as designers!"  


-  Edgardo J. Lopez, Industrial Sprinkler Corp.
