Important notes:
  • This add-in requires: Windows® 10 or 11 with .NET Framework 4.8 runtime and Revit 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 or 2023.
  • TL Solids is, in essence, an automation tool for Autodesk Revit, therefore, all operations performed by its features consist of the execution of multiple native operations (that could be manually done in Revit in a long and repetitive process) at once and in an organized workflow, controlled via the user interface. So, the product will not perform any operation that is not allowed or available to be manually done in Revit. TL Solids allows the user to use the existing native features in a highly more productive way. It does not create new ones.
  • In case you have any doubts while using this add-in, you can always hover your mouse cursor over any of the active commands for useful tooltips on how to use them, or you can send us an e-mail: info@etlipse.com.
