A simple and effective tool that will improve your productivity by upgrading multiple Autodesk® Revit® files (excluding Workshared projects) to the current version.

General Usage Instructions

  • To open the application, select the button "Upgrader" within the “Upgrader” panel of the Add-ins Ribbon Tab (see image - 1). This is available with our document being open in Revit.
  • The Upgrader dialog will open (see image – 2).
  • Use the Browse button to open the folder containing the Revit documents to be Upgraded (see image - 3).
  • To include all documents in subfolders select the “Include Subfolders” checkbox (see image – 4).
  • To exclude Revit file types deselect the relevant file types (see image – 5)
  • Any item can be excluded from upgrade by deselecting it.
  • Use the filter to filter document names by the text string.
  • Use the Browse button to select the destination folder for the upgraded documents (see image - 6).
  • You can also upgrade in the Current Location by selecting the “Upgrade in Current Location” Checkbox (see image – 7). NOTE. A warning dialog will be displayed advising that this will overwrite the existing file names unless they are distinct from their originals.
  • Distinct names can be achieved by using the Prefix, Suffix or Find & Replace functions (see image – 8).
  • Further options are also available during the upgrade process (see image -9). NOTE Audit will increase processing time)
  • Audit - If any errors are, found Revit will let you know. A window will pop up informing you of the number of errors found and the number of errors fixed. If you get no such window informing you then no errors were found.
  • Upon completion, a dialog identifying the number of files Upgraded is shown.
  • A more detailed log of the files upgraded is shown if the “Show Log upon completion” checkbox is selected (see image - 10). This can be exported to a CSV file if required.

Operate with caution! Because the process of upgrading Revit files is irreversible, ensure that recent backups have been done.
