    4Revit Development

    Hello forum readers
    I am the leading developer of the 4Revit add-in. I would like to plan the medium-term development. Therefore I would like to get some Opinions from you. I am located in Central Europe so my Ideas are inspired by the local requirements.
    1. I would like to solve issues with the waste water and excavation plans. Are these problematic fields for you also? Or are they not important at all?
    2. The goal for the wastewater solution should not be to model in 3D. That is what Revit MEP is for. I would like to concentrate on the topology. That should allow to get information about the amount of waste water for a pipe segment, the objects (toilets, bath tubes, etc.) connected to the segment, the water flow through the segment etc. - Any comments?
    3. The excavation plan should support to model a terrain along existing 3d elements like the edges of the building pads to model the excavated terrain. At the same time, 2d? signatures should be added to the excavation plan. - Any comments?

    Thank you for your time and for letting me know your thoughts.
    Have a nice time with Revit

    FWIW, being located in Northern Europe and working mainly with architecture, I do not need the above tool at all

    But if it´s needed "down there" in Central Europe, then go for it by all means :beer:

      Here in Holland also not really a problem. But then again, we don't have mountains, so if there is any excavation for a basement or something it's pretty straight forward... Actually we named one bump a mountain but I believe it's a staggering 500m above sea level or something.

      What would be nice? Let me think about that for a while...

        Yes, what else is time consuming to do in Revit, if anything?

        Kind Regards

          A small thing that have always bothered me, is that I can´t get the scale and papersize of the sheets to appear in the sheetlists...

          Maybe you can find more inspiration in the Wishlist forum? The one on batten insulation as a flexible pattern is pretty high on my personal list.

          Uhhh! Can you make a tool that would allow us to pick faces on imported geometry and have it converted to native Revit geometry? That would be way cool :beer:

            Klaus,
            Yes, I often have a look at the wishlist forum, good advice :-) I'll take a look at your other ideas.

              I do that all the time, actually. The pick tool in combo with the wall makes for quick work. Is that what you mean? Or when making families? Then I pick the face of the imported object as my workplane, then use the pick tool with Tab to select the whole outline of the imported face. It's two steps instead of one, but it works most of the time...

                I would LOVE to have a tool that gives the position of the center of gravity for an element (thinking of concrete precast workflow).

                  Another idea is to extract the orientation of the window relative to true north. Might this be useful for you?

                    :thumbsup: That would be no less than AWESOME! Currently I´m having the orientation as a manual value, that I use ALL the time for Energy Analysis... Would love to have it Automated.
