Customizable version-controlled QR codes for drawings to check the current versions and status of a drawing if it is outdated.

General Usage Instructions

Out of the box, the QR plugin generates a basic QR code using the default profile and title block position from the built-in Autodesk title block. It utilizes the "Sheet Number" parameter in Autodesk® Revit® for all drawings, resulting in a black-and-white pixel-based QR code.

Customizing QR Codes:

To customize the QR code, click the "Edit Profiles" button. Here, you can edit existing profiles, rename them, or add new ones using the adjacent button.

Customizing Drawing Names:

Modify the drawing name by default, based on the "Sheet Number." Add additional parameters assigned to the sheet category of the model, including built-in and custom parameters, by double-clicking or using the add button. The first column lists input parameters, while the second column shows desired parameter combinations.

QR Code Styling:

Choose between standard appearance and pixelated QR code styles. Customize pixel shape and coloring options, selecting from preset colors or advanced color modes. Enable or disable logos and select a PNG format logo for placement at the center of the QR code.

Title block Location Customization:

To adjust the QR code placement location, click "Edit Titleblock" on the home page. Choose from a list of saved title blocks, adjusting X and Y coordinates and QR code size in millimeters. Recommended practice involves placing the QR code at 0,0 and adjusting dimensions accordingly.

QR Code Synchronization:

Access the main QR interface to view a table listing all drawings in the model. Review QR code names, sheet names, drawing version/revision, and online revision. Yellow status indicates a missing revision, blue denotes a fresh drawing, red signifies a higher online version number, and green confirms the latest registered version.

Updating Information without Changing Revision:

If the QR code status is green, indicating the latest version, you can resync the QR code without consuming additional tokens. This is useful for minor updates like modified drawing names or revision descriptions.

Syncing QR Codes:

Choose to sync all QR codes with valid version numbers and sufficient tokens or select specific sheets from the table. Click "Sync" to initiate the synchronization process.

Token Management:

If the number of tokens is insufficient to sync all drawings, a popup interface will display the current cost and available tokens. The synchronization process proceeds until all available tokens are utilized, after which no further drawings will be processed. If you need further tokens you will need to buy them from the Penguin Tools plugin site.
