My First (useful) Revit Plugin: ViewCreator

Plaatsingsdatum: 5-dec-2016 21:19:06

Last year was my first acquaintance with programming thanks to Dynamo. One thing led to another, to be more specific it led me to a few online computer science courses and tutorials which taught me some basic Python (very useful for Dynamo), even more basic C and finally C#. The latter helped me create my first Revit Plugin that does more than say "Hello World" or copy a Revit Group from one location to another.

It's a really simple plugin which will allow you to create views for every Level in a Revit project based on the available View Templates. Very useful for creating views for every level at the start of a project.

On the left side you can select the View Templates and on the right side the Levels to use, pretty straightforward I guess.

For anyone who'd like to use it: just download from the bottom of this site and place the .zip in your local addins folder, which should be located here for Revit 2016: "%programdata%\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2016"

And here for Revit 2017: "%programdata%\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2017"

After downloading extract the files to the same folder. After that boot up Revit and you'll find it under 'Add-ins' -> 'External Tools'.
