Offset Incrementer

Plaatsingsdatum: 20-dec-2016 20:25:06

My second plugin is a real small one, but can be useful in some situations.

This doesn't happen all that much, but sometimes I like to model in 3D views. Depending on the situation it can be faster and easier to work in a 3D view instead of in a bunch of 2D views. The following has happened to me a few times: I have a few of elements selected, all with different offset values and I want them all to move the same amount in a vertical direction. Because the values are different Revit won't allow you to change them through the properties palette. The only option would be to go to a section view and move everything in the section view. The trouble is you don't always have a section view open, so you lose your selection. Of course you could save your selection and load it again in the section view but to me that feels to much like a hassle. And that's why I created the Offset Incrementer plugin. This little plugin will let you increase or decrease the offset value of the selected elements in one go.

A simple example:

Three selected elements that I want to move up. Normally I would have to select each element individually and change its offset.

Remember: External Commands like this can also be set to a keyboard shortcut. I have this one set to 'OI'.

For Revit 2016: Just unzip the file to this folder: "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2016"

For Revit 2017: Unzip to this folder: "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2017"

Update: now with optional Offset value list:
