    Revit Scheduling - from Excel to Revit

    I have a basic question - How do you guys import data from Excel to Revit? i have been doing this using "Copy Spreadsheet" third-party software, but it is so sensitive when operating....Has anyone used something more up-to-date and more reliable?

    Thank you, PHXARCH

    We're currently using QuickTable from Tools4Revit.com. Not the best solution, but it's about our only solution right now.

      This might be an acceptable solution to you as well.

          phxarch, for big volumes of data, RDBlink is the tool.
          For a single schedule I stay with Nicolas or Medina copyspreadsheet script.
          And it is reliable, you just have to play by the rules and avoid sorting issues.

            My firm's been contacted by resellers for Ideate BIMlink. Haven't had a chance to use or review it myself yet, not a feature I expect to use too often. May be worth a look.

              From my understanding (and correct me if I am wrong Ideate) BIMLink is a push pull addin. Meaning it allows you to pull a schedule from within Revit, export to Excel, make changes in Excel, then push those modifications back into Revit.

                The Revit Extensions for Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 contains the Excel Based Model Generation add-in. From the 5 minutes hands-on I've had it allows you to generate a basic model containing levels, columns, beams, walls and footings. Not quite a complet model, but it's a start.

                    What's 64bit???
                    Seriously, why on earth are they still publishing tools that only work on 32 bit. The official point of view has been "use 64bit systems" for quite a few years now!
