Butterfly is a data visualization tool that helps you to create astonishing diagrams with a few mouse clicks with the Autodesk® Revit®.

General Usage Instructions

Click on the Generate Chart button to open up Butterfly charts dialog.

From this dialog, you can choose a Revit schedule under Data source settings and then pick two columns of the schedule in order to generate the graph.

The values under the Label column will be used to label the chart and the values under the Value column will be used as scalar information to generate the graph.

Choose one graph type from the Graph type menu.

A preview of the graph will be shown immediately when all information is provided.

Enter a name for the graph in the Graph name box and then click on Generate button to create the graph.

When a chart is created successfully the graph family will be loaded into the project and you must place it on a 2D view.

After the graph is created you can use the same dialog to modify the graphs or use the Refresh graphs command to update the graphs if the database (Revit schedule) has been changed.
