For those of you that play with the Revit API to create your own custom Add-Ins, this new resource may prove very useful. Peter Boyer from the Dynamo team has built a website for the Revit API help files to make them more accessible, with improved search functionality. The website can be found at revitapisearch.com.
Those who currently use Family Browser will most probably be aware of the recent update released last week. The functionality doesn’t appear to have changed other than the ability for Family Browser to now be fully integrated within the Revit 2014 user interface. Don’t get me wrong, this is a massive [...]
Have you ever wondered how to get Revit to do more for you? How about automated geometry creation or optimisation of designs? Or you’ve thought about getting into computational design but you’re a bit scared of programming or don’t know where to start? Then you’ll want to check out Zach Kron’s recent post
