    Auto Grid Snap?

    So I have an idea for a Revit add-in, and I would love to get some feedback on whether its even possible to build, how difficult it would be to build, or if people think its a bad idea for some reason.
    I want to have a setting in a Revit project that restricts the placement of all objects(or at least walls) to a specified grid. So if a wall is placed 2501mm from another wall, Revit will automatically shift it to be 2500mm away instead. Same with wdws and doors, if it gets nudged off grid I want Revit to shift it to the nearest increment of 50mm, or whatever increment is set for the project.
    What do people think?

    Thanks for any input as I am trying to process through this issue of maintaining precision in a very fast paced design office.


    I'm ambiguous. On the one hand it could come in very handy for some elements. On the other hand: the dutch standard door frame width is 1034mm... So I don't see it helpful there. Would be nice if there were some conditions:

    - Set certain categories for which this applies
    - Possibility to manually select items to be added OR excluded from this option.

    Besides that: I think this might create huge difficulties when you have other constraints in place... As for how hard it is to do: I don't know.
