- View Creator can create 3D views for each user workset and configure the graphic option
“The new BIM List is amazing!” said Rolly Stevens Virtual Design Manager at Ryan Companies. “It’s nice to see the new tools as well as enhancements to your existing tools. I hadn’t even thought of using a renumbering add-on to renumber views on a sheet. Every time I open the Revit Express Tools, I find another workflow I can use them for.”
“Our new BIM List solves many of the challenges firms have with Revit content,” said Jeff Burbank, Product Manager for Revit Express Tools. “We’ve seen our clients struggle to manage their families, system families and views. By expanding BIM List’s ability to incorporate the additional content types and adding features like user favorites and live search, we continue to provide tools that decrease the time spent searching and increase the time available for design.”
