Steve recently noted that “waiting for a Revit project to upgrade unnecessarily because I don’t know what version it was created in is a drag”. He mentioned two wishes:
“I’ve got a couple wishes. First I’d love it if Revit would store a value in the file properties that indicates Revit version. Second I’d love for Revit to ask first, “Do You WANT to UPGRADE? and a “NO, NOOOO, please on all things holy NOOOO” button.”
Sean rightfully suggested this would be a great opportunity for the Revit API to come to the rescue.
You know I love to grant a good wish!
Comments welcome as always… The install is available in my Revit API course at https://www.udemy.com/revitapi/?couponCode=149
Since I recently updated Image-O-Matic to run in 2014, I’ve known that sooner or later I needed to update it to work with 2014’s new Displacement functionality.
Here it is!
To celebrate the posting of Image-O-Matic on the Autodesk Exchange, I am sponsoring a great contest!
- Download Image-O-Matic from the Autodesk Exchange and use it to make a great video showing the animation of a Revit family or phased model.
For a Vasari installer, visit https://boostyourbim.wordpress.com/products
- Email me for a free license so Image-O-Matic will be able to make large image files. Or purchase a license for only $4.99 at https://boostyourbim.wordpress.com/products
- Upload your video to YouTube
- Leave a comment on this post with a link to your YouTube video
Contest ends February 15. Two winners will be chosen through a poll that I will post here after February 15 – one winner for phasing, one winner for instance parameters.
Each winner will get to design one Revit API app that I will build to their specifications!
The app should be approximately as complex as Image-O-Matic and I will collaborate with the winners to agree on the final design. The winners will get a free, unlimited license to use them. Boost Your BIM will retain ownership of the app and its source code, but maybe I will share the source with the winners if I am feeling generous.
