Family Type Exporter

Family Type Exporter

Win64, English

Revit's premier Type Catalog exporter: 14 languages, organize parameters, 20 API data points, duplicate families, seamless international conversions, export nested family and parameter data to Excel.

General Usage Instructions

Install as an Autodesk® Revit® add-in under the Family Editor Ribbon. 

Family Type Exporter will place all family parameters and related properties into a Datagrid. 

Select the parameters in the desired order for the Type Catalog or bulk select all required parameters. Then click the 'Export' button. 

A Type Catalog .txt file is generated in the family folder, matching the family name.  


Export all parameter properties shown in the Datagrid to an external Excel file.  

Optionally, export any nested families with proper name formatting and assignments to each host parameter FamilyType.


To make edits to the Type Catalog, it is suggested to use Family Type Manager Pro to quickly update all Type Catalog values.
