Scope Box Synchronizer

Scope Box Synchronizer

Digitally signed app

Operační systém:


The application is able to import all or selected Scope Boxes from a linked Autodesk® Revit® project into your project, as well as checking if yours and the linked Scope Boxes are the same - if they are different you're able to Synchronize your Scope Boxes to match those in the linked project. Similar to the built-in Copy/Monitor functionality, but on Scope Boxes.

Please note that the Views Visible setting on updated Scope Boxes will be not be kept.

In version 1.8.0 I implemented a whole new feature - the enabling and disabling of synchronization. 
Also, I'm trying to save that into a XML-file in the current user's Appdata folder, under local/OmniaRevit/ScopeBoxSynchronizer. That might work. Or not. Scary stuff!
Please report any issues!

Also, please note that I have a strange bug reported in 1.7.2, something about a Read-Only parameter - please contact me if you can provide a demo project with that bug!
This might be caused by a view set to Temporary View - just make sure your views are not in Temporary View status when you synchronize.

  • Very handy!
    Romualdo Zwolinski | března 23, 2022 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Saves time when working with linked models!

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | března 24, 2022

    Thank you Romualdo! Great to hear! :-)

  • Great Tool!
    Zain Juratli | listopadu 07, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Thank you for this great tool

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | listopadu 12, 2019

    Thank you, Zain! I'm very happy to hear you like my little creation! Have a great day! :-)

  • Does what it claims

    Hi Tushar! Happy to hear, have a great day!

  • Awesome
    Brian Zuzik | července 08, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Been using this for years, do you have a dynamo version of this app that you could post?

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | července 09, 2019

    Hi Brian! Cool, happy to hear you're a long time fan! ;-) A Dynamo version could be possible but parts of the application (detecting difference, rotated links) could be a bit tricky! Just copying Scope Boxes from a link is really simple, applying them to existing views should work... Fun idea! I'll think about it, thanks!

  • Perfect!
    Joseph Shannon | května 07, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    This saved so much time, thank you! Is there a way where I can only update select scope boxes instead of all of them?

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | května 10, 2019

    Thanks Joseph, happy to hear you like my little creation! For now, the only way is to filter those Scope Boxes you'd like to be affected using the Filter thingy but that's a good input of course!

  • No Problems
    Sam Randall | ledna 20, 2017 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    This took a minute to install and worked great. Thanks,

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | ledna 25, 2017

    Thanks Sam! You're very welcome! I'm happy to hear that, thank you for your review! :-)

  • Best App I've used
    Russell Eckstein | října 05, 2016 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Outstanding app. I've used it on several projects as we follow the Architects scope boxes. I hope Autodesk picks it up and integrates it with the copy/monitor tool.

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | října 06, 2016

    Thanks Russel! :-) So far Autodesk hasn't given me any offers but who knows! Have a great day!

  • Great Job
    Steve Saltsman | září 09, 2016 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Think this is a must for all. Autodesk should add it to Revit functionality.

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | září 14, 2016

    Thanks Steve! Yes - they should and the only thing required is allowing Copy/Monitor to work on Scope Boxes and it's done. Have a great day!

    Steve Saltsman | dubna 12, 2017

    That is true about the Copy/Monitor but I like you method better! Do you have a 2017 or 2018 version in planning to remove the error at start up?

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | dubna 22, 2017

    The error message is actually a "feature" in Revit 2017 and beyond - it shows that the programmer has been trustworthy enough to prove his identity, pay for a certificate and cryptographically sign the application. It's also a good thing of course - it validates that the application has not been tampered with. The message should dissappear if you choose "Load Always" but I've heard of cases when it doesn't. I currently pondering how to proceed - such a certfificate is pretty expensive and I would need to charge something for the application.

  • Great Add-in, surely a Must have!!
    Diego Malagon | června 30, 2016 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    easy to install and use

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | srpna 26, 2016

    Thanks Diego - happy to hear it! :-)

  • Must have app !
    Cyril Waechter | ledna 25, 2016 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Thanks a lot Thorbjörn for this must have app. Very clear UI, very usefull function missing from native Revit.

  • Easy to use!
    Julien Jean-Charland | prosince 15, 2015 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Super easy to use and very useful for large projects with a lot of scope boxes!

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | prosince 16, 2015

    Merci Julien! I'm happy to hear that! :-)

  • Great Add In
    Daniel Mapes | prosince 15, 2015 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Love the concept and it also works very well. I use this when setting up projects to ensure that scope boxes match for all disciplines. It is also helpful to be able to match changes when scope boxes in the link have been changed.

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | prosince 16, 2015

    Great to hear that you like the application! Would you also like the application be able to compare Scope Boxes between several Revit projects - even if they are not linked?

  • So easy to use! Try the Scope Box Purger too.
    Jesus Ayala-Vega | září 23, 2015 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    This app and the Scope Box Purger helped me a lot in transferring scope boxes from an Arch model (and purging older ones that were messing up my plan views). Both apps were quick and easy to install, and provided good information previous to deleting or linking the boxes.

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | září 24, 2015

    Thanks, Jesus! I'm happy to hear that you like Synchronizer - and that you have also tried my very latest little creation; Purger! Right now I'm working on an update to Synchronizer which will make it even easier to use and also make it a little prettier on the eyes. Have a great day!

  • A really nice time saver.
    Thierry Monteyne | července 02, 2015 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    No need to open any linked Revit model to review them Scope Boxes, just use the app and you're all done. Version 1.0 needed a little tweak, I admit (not-loaded Revit Links were the issue). So just wait for v1.1 to come online. The app is fast, very fast and within 2 seconds the job can be done. You can even reorder them if not already done. Very fast support by the way, thank you.

    Thorbjorn Hoverberg (Vydavatel) | července 02, 2015

    Thank you very much and the next version is, as you wrote, one the way - the friendly people at Autodesk India just needs to package and do some quality assuarance - should be out in a week or so. Thanks again for your bug report, if you ever come by Stockholm - the beers are on me! :-)

  • Command Failure For External Command
    Van Boon | června 18, 2015 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Did not work for me. Command Failure for External Command. =(

    Thierry Monteyne | července 02, 2015

    Had the same problem. Just email to the supplied cust. support and you should have gotten the answer. I did it, and within 4.1 hours a solution presented itself.
