            It is what was missing from pre 2010 releases, that's why we didn't have any plugins for Revit... It gets better with every release...
            The success of AutoCAD was that it became a platform for CAD apps... it was not only a CAD app...
            Revit Architecture - 3ds MAX Design - Octane Render - and many working hours...

              In a way the API is for REVIT what LISP is for CAD.

              Then there's VSTA which also gives you API functionality and its built right in, VSTA is a good way to expose yourself to REVIT innards and play with the API to create or break.
