Voyansi Tools Help
Once installed, Voyansi Tools are available to the user under the Revit® Options menu item. From the Voyansi Tools option, the user is able to activate or deactivate each individual included tool.
Access in Revit is found under File-> Options-> Voyansi Tools.
Voyansi Tools currently supports Revit 2021, 2022, and 2023.
Window Inheritance Of Exterior Wall Orientation
When this tool is active, each time a window is inserted a Voyansi “Inherit Wall Orientation” control appears in the Voyansi Ribbon menu offering a drop-down selection for inheritance/non-inheritance of the wall orientation.
Default Wall Join (None, Butt, Miter, Square Off)
When this tool is active, each time a wall or a wall chain is created a Voyansi “Wall Join Type” control appears in the Voyansi Ribbon menu offering a drop-down selection for None, Butt, Miter or Square Off join options.
Alignment/Rotation of Text Notes
When this tool is active, each time a user selects one or multiple Text Notes, Voyansi Angle and Align controls appear in the Voyansi Ribbon menu where the user may:
Angle - Enter a numerical angle. On pressing enter, the Text Notes will be rotated to that angle.
Click the Align button and select a linear Revit element (wall, model line, slab edge etc). The selected Text Notes will inherit the rotation of that linear element.
Area of Wall Exterior and Interior Surfaces
When this tool is active two parameters are created with the individual areas of both surfaces which may be used to define the exterior and interior finish areas for a wall.
- Interior Area
- Exterior Area
The parameters are updated before any creation or modification of the geometry of a wall.
Areas of Stairways, Runs, and Landings
When this tool is active a parameter is created with the area in horizontal projection.
- Footprint Area.
The parameter is updated before any creation or modification of the geometry of a section or landing.
Metal Component Parameters (Weight, Section Perimeter, Surface Area)
When this tool is active up to three parameters are created for each metallic element of the categories Beams, Columns, Steel Trusses, Rebar, Structural Connections, and Structural Stiffeners.
- Section Perimeter
- Surface Area
The parameters are updated before any creation or modification of the geometry of a metallic element.
Roof Dimensions (Ridge, Hip, Valley, Eaves, Perimeter, Rake, Sidewall and Headwall Flashing)
For each roof and in their respective parameters, the tool provides the total lengths of:
- Ridges - The total length of the Ridges of the roof. Note that Hips with a slope less than 1/10 are also considered Ridges.
- Hips - The total length of the Hips of the roof. Note that Hips with a slope less than 1/10 are considered Ridges.
- Valleys - The total length of the Valleys of the roof.
- Eaves - The total length of horizontal Eaves of the roof.
- Perimeter - The total length of the Perimeter of the edge of the roof, including the actual sloped edge length.
- Rake - The total length of the Rakes of the roof, including actual sloped edge length.
- Sidewall Flashing - The total length of the intersections of the Roof and the Sidewalls or other vertical elements against the roof. Only sloped intersections are calculated.
- Headwall Flashing - The total length of the intersections of the Roof and the Headwalls or other vertical elements against the roof. Only horizontal intersections are calculated.
The parameters are updated before any creation or modification of the geometry of a roof.
Door Swing Direction (Left, Right, Both)
A Project Parameter for the Door Category is created in the active project, indicating the door swing direction for each door instance - Right, Left, or Both.
- Swing Direction
The parameter is updated before any creation or modification of the geometry of a door.
