Digitteck® AutoNumbering™: You can automatically renumber (marks): Rooms, Doors, Windows or select any Family Instances. There are multiple algorithms available with plenty of settings.

General Usage Instructions

Step1: Select elements from Autodesk® Revit®


You have multiple options available to you for selecting the type of element you target for renumbering. You can choose to renumber Doors/Windows/Rooms or manually select the Family and Family Type.

After you select the type of element you want to renumber the application offers 3 ways of actually create this selection:

  • All: This option brings in all the elements of the type you previously selected. These are added to the initial selection and you can further filter this selection.
  • By Level: This option filters the selection at a specific level.
  • Custom Selection: Choose this option to if you want to make a selection using the rectangle selection tool from Revit (selection can be made in 2D or 3D)

Step 2: Choose a strategy – the add-in allows you to choose from 3 strategies

  • Straight - this algorithm uses one direction (line). For each item in the filtered selection, it determines it's projection on this line. The elements are renumbered from one side of the line or the other. To read more about this check the Algorithm For Strategy Straight page in the help file.
  • Straight with strips -  this algorithm uses the same logic as the strategy straight. The points are projected on the direction for numbering. But instead of using only one line, a set of lines are created, elements are grouped inside these lines are groups are treated separately.
  • By Curve - this algorithm allows you to define multiple paths that will guide the numbering process. The algorithm will determine which elements correspond to which path (closest). Then it will project the elements to their corresponding path. The numbering is made by following the curve from start to end. Read more in the help file.

Step 3: Apply the algorithm and format the output. After you have chosen your elements you can apply the algorithm by pressing Calculate. After the renumbering has been performed you can choose to apply formatting to the output:

  • Add a prefix to the number
  • Add a suffix to the number
  • Add a special prefix to the number if the element is mirrored
  • Add a special suffix to the number if the element is mirrored
  • Format the number to have 0 trailings (e.g. 1 to be 001)
