This course is for people who want to do more with the Autodesk Revit building information modeling software.
You can do a lot of great things with Revit as it ships "out of the box" from Autodesk, but there are still many tasks that are repetitive, boring, and error-prone. There are also many situations where you can be more effective and productive if you can add additional functionality to Revit.
This course will cover a wide range of topics in the Revit API. Each topic will be taught by walking through a set of C# code samples that progress from the basics to more advanced concepts.
More content will be added to this new course in the upcoming weeks. If you see a topic that you like added, just let me know and I will try to make that addition.
Create 'shape edit' points in a floor based on XYZ points in a toposurface
Create model lines and the sketch planes that are needed to create them.
How to find the column nearest a given point. An enhancement has been made to the downloadable code that is not in the video - this allows the code to work for vertical and slanted columns.
How to find all elements that would be deleted when a specified element is deleted.
Use the ability to cancel the DocumentSavingAs event to prevent doing a Save As onto a central file
Harry is the founder of Boost Your BIM, a software development and training company that collaborates with AEC firms to make Revit better. Boost Your BIM customers benefit from custom-built API applications that extend Revit’s capabilities and enable them to complete their work faster and with better results.
Boost Your BIM has built applications to automate routine tasks, enforce company standards, extract model data, use the Revit UI more efficiently, and solve other problems that would be difficult or impossible to do with Revit in its “out of the box” state.
Harry was an employee of Revit Technology Corporation and Autodesk from 1998 to 2012 and spent four of those years developing and testing new Revit APIs in areas such as the Family Editor, Massing, Analysis Visualization, Dynamic Model Update, and Views & Schedules.
