Powerful Revit Architecture, Revit MEP  and Revit Structure extension
helps you quickly design buildings, manage facilities and analyze BIM data

Compatible with Revit 2010, Revit 2011, Revit 2012, Revit 2013 and Revit 2014

The TOOLS4REVIT Building Information Detailing (BID) extension works with current or linked projects and provides a powerful set of tools for building model detailing and analysis of BIM data.

TOOLS4REVIT BID helps you to insert any number of elements (Furniture, Lighting Fixtures, Mechanical Equipment, Structural Connections, Areas, etc) by using built-in, but fully customizable, rules into predefined positions that are logically related with other objects. A database of rules can be easily extended by requesting us to customize the tool for your needs.

  • Place light switches next to doors, radiators beneath windows, hangers for duct or trim around rooms
  • Create dynamic legends that can contain multiple views of your families or even photos
  • Renumber Rooms, Doors and Grids - Anything can be renumbered with this tool
  • Associate doors with rooms and even show door opening direction in legends

This incredible Revit extension includes TOOLS4REVIT's powerful SORT & MARK, DYNAMIC LEGEND and CUT OPENING extension functionality.  This could possibly be the most powerful Revit detailing tool on the market.

  • All modifications are going in real time, so the user can easily control the process.
  • "Analyse data" function groups and quantifies objects in different sections of BIM data tree. User can select different grouping opportunities and filter elements for analysis.
  • Calculates areas and room wall finishes (material name, gross wall area, net wall area, wall segment length and etc) and groups all data in different ways.
  • Any model elements can be selected using different built-in rules.
  • There are possible other forms to show and put on paper analyzing results. All dialogs has functionality that helps to create/update table data in the drafting view with selected settings.

New Building Information Detailing (BID) version 2012.2

has been released!

Building Information Detailing (BID) 2012.2

What's new:
  • Added ability to modify Type parameters, not just Instance parameters;

 

  • "Configure Grouping" dialog is updated. Now the dialog is more flexible and the designer can select any kind of parameters for grouping and filtering;

 

  • New command "Calculate Value" is added where user can use complex formulas for calculation of new values;

 

  • "Sort Grids" now has the ability to automatically rename grids during the creation of grids in the Revit project;

 

  • Project Browser is enhanced to so the designer can easily find any element and import it directly it to the project:

 

  • Now it is possible to replace curtain walls with windows (by creating new types) when curtain walls are used as windows in the design process:

  • Added new command "Replace Element". Command changes selected family type to a new one.  It also copies selected parameters to the new type. For example, if you click on a window, and select two cells in table: Comments (Value - AA) and Mark (Value - BB). Element will be replaced and Comments and Mark parameters will be copied. Also it can keep old dimensions of family and creates new type of selected family;

 

  • Now the "Modify/Calculate Parameters", "Analyze Quantities" and "Analyze Totals" dialogs have the ability to save user made settings during the configuration;

 

  • Added new functionality to create additional parameters in the "Modify/Calculate Parameters" dialog where needed values will be written;

 

  • Added new command "Write Orientation" (for Walls, Windows and Doors);

 

  • Added new command "Wall Joins" for managing wall connections in the project;

 

  • "Sort&Mark" now is a separate function that allows for faster sorting;

 

  • Added new function "Analyze Totals", that allows the designer to see parameters and sum of quantities. This function is perfect for filtering and selecting elements from the project.
