In this post, I’m going to show you how to use RevitLookup to explore the Properties and Methods of your Revit elements. Being able to explore the Revit API with RevitLookup will make it much easier to code in Dynamo, Python or in PropertyWizard.
PropertyWizard 1-4-3 has just gone live on the Autodesk App Store!
This is a bugfix release with two key bugfixes:
Hyphens in parameter names
Some built-in parameter names contain hyphens. An example is ‘Rebar Cover – Top Face’. Now you can use these parameter names in PropertyWizard formulas.
Large models in BIM 360 Design
BIM 360 Design limits the number of elements an app can include in a workshare borrow request. If you set a formula on a category that contains a lot of elements, you can hit this limit. PropertyWizard 1-4-3 avoids the problem by using a better element borrowing algorithm.
I’m happy to announce that PropertyWizard 1-3-0 has just gone live on the Autodesk App Store. The main focus of the new version is Revit 2021 support.
As well as adding Revit 2021 support, I have been busy refactoring the code to make it more flexible and extensible. That work is now complete, so I will be able to deliver new and requested functionality much more quickly.
You can use PropertyWizard to copy hidden data from the Revit API into your element parameters. This example shows PropertyWizard replicating Element Ids into visible element parameters for walls and doors.
A quick video showing PropertyWizard updating the handedness of doors in a door schedule.
I’ve created a new ‘Hand’ parameter on the Doors in my project, and added it to a door schedule. As I flip the doors between Right and Left hand, PropertyWizard keeps the parameter up-to-date. So the schedule always shows the correct door hand.
There are different conventions for handedness in different countries: This example shows the DIN 107 standard, but you can customise the PropertyWizard formula to match the standard that applies to your project.
A new version of PropertyWizard is now live on the Autodesk App Store. I’ve reduced the installation size, fixed several bugs around internationalisation, and added Volume units in cubic metres and cubic feet.
