These short clips are from an earlier build, but they demonstrate how useful it can be when all of your model data is exposed and easily editable, in real time. The “I” in BIM is the most important part.

That’s why Pallet is on the Palette, and everything else I could think of. It’s getting quite long however. We’ll have to scroll depending on our resolution so I’ve decided to put Custom Data on it’s own Tab. Perhaps in the future we will have the option to select which data fields we want to see, and which ones we don’t.


  1. Steve, this is pretty amazing and saves so much time. I thought the ability to set the lining or insulation to off would be very useful.


  2. Craig, I’m glad you’re finding it useful! One of the limitations of the AutoCAD based Fabrication API is that it doesn’t allow us to set certain values to “None” yet. Insulation Specification is one of them. A temporary workaround is to add a “None” Insulation Spec to your Database. Adding an option to set the Insulation Status to “Off” is on the list. Thanks for the feedback!


  3. That’s a good workaround. Waiting in anticipation for the Revit release, “Cash Waiting”. I’ve seen some of these tools you used at AU and thought man, please sell these. Glad that you decided to go your own way.
