General Usage Instructions


    On opening a few commands such as "EXPORT", "PURGE", "SAVE" will be disabled.
    These commands will work only after the analysis is done using the "ANALYZE" command.


  •     Choose the items on which the analysis should be done.
  •     Click ANALYZE button to conduct analysis
  •     Once the analysis is complete, the results will be displayed in the results region.


  •     Two small buttons will be provided in the Results Region.
  •     From the Results, the region select the items that you wish to Lock or Unlock.


  •     Once you have locked or unlocked desired items, save them by clicking "SAVE" button.
  •     If not saved, the locked status will be lost and then the next time when the same file is analyzed, the items have to be locked again.

STEP 4: EXPORT Analysis reports for decision making

  •     If you wish to analyze the results to make a decision on whether to purge the items or not, please export the results to CSV format.
  •     Do analysis outside Revit and make the decision on the items that you wish to purge.
  •     After analysis, lock the items that you wish to keep away from purging.

    Reports can be exported in CSV format.

  1.   Use the "EXPORT" button to export reports which are displayed on the screen.
  2.   Use the small export button at the bottom left corner of the tool to export Dimension Analysis Results.
