We got a very generous offer from fellow Reviteur Joe Sferrazza, from Charlotte's Revit User Group (CRUG). He has shared his addin tools and offered their use to us...for free!!! (another benefit of LinkedIn!!!)
Thank you very much Joe!!! We will use these thoroughly.
I probably don't have to (but I will) remind you to hit the images for direct links...
Although some of us may have similar tools from other places there are many that you may not yet have and these have their own distinct options in many cases... The tools include:
will scan the project and check the case of grid labels, level names, room names, sheet names/number, view names/titles & text elements with options to fix any errors.
will scan the case of all characters in a selected text element to either all uppercase or lowercase letters.
allows the user to easily renumber views already placed on a sheet, avoiding the ‘Detail Number is already in use’ error within Revit.
filters a selection of walls based on a set of rules entered by the user. There are a total of 14 parameters to filter by including: Base Offset, Length, Room Bounding, Top Extension Distance, Area…
searches the current project for rooms matching the entered criteria. Searches can be filtered by room name, room number, level, case and whether or not to only include exact matches. Once the results are displayed options include showing the room location in the model, selecting the current room and exporting the list to an Excel format.
allows a user to quickly create and name a new sheet. Options include setting thee drawn by parameter based on your username and selecting a title-block based on the most commonly used in the current project.
creates a DWF of the current view and attaches it to an Outlook email.
creates a DWF of the current view and saves it to the default save location, set inn the configure DWF tool.
sets the default DWF optioons used for the save DWF and email DWF tools.
allows a user to quickly log into any standard ftp site by entering the required login information. Options include saving the login information and opening directly in a folder view.
allows a user to quickly capture a screenshot and save it.
opens an easy to usee unit converssion program that convertss the most popular units of distance, temperature, volumme, time, speeed, mass, poower, density,, pressure, ennergy and maany others, including the ability to create custom conversions. This version contains over 4,50 0 combinations and includes options too email or text a conversion as well as options to suggest units, report errors and automatically copy the output to the clipboard.

Next: Revit MEP & Structural tools offered up from another Reviteur (from LA)??? We should pay some of this back by sharing our (read as your) tools, etc!!!
Either way Thanks again to Joe Sferrazza, CRUG for doing his part...
