Add Filters+

One of the most powerful and versatile features of Revit is the use of view filters. View filters allow for highly customizable methods for controlling the visibility and graphics of elements within Revit. At GeminiBIM, we have developed the Add Filter+ add-in to provide Revit users with a streamlined approach to bulk-adding or modifying filters applied to Revit view templates. This add-in alleviates the difficulty of manually adding or modifying view filters assigned to multiple view templates by providing a robust user interface that allows various methods to add or modify filters. You can manually add and configure filters and assign them to multiple view templates or automate the process by copying view filters from an existing Revit template and assigning them to other templates, copying all aspects of visibility control and the graphical setting assigned to the view filter. The Filter+ was designed to provide a simplistic approach to managing view filters within the Revit project

Template Transfer

Managing view templates within Revit can be a time-consuming task; ensuring that specific desired settings are consistent across multiple view templates or adjusting settings across numerous templates within a Revit project can pose a challenge. Here at GeminiBIM, we developed the Template Transfer utility that provides an intuitive and efficient method to apply changes across a single view template or multiple templates in a Revit project by specifying a source view template and settings to transfer from and target view templates to modify. The Template Transfer utility provides a method to foster greater consistency and reduces the efforts needed to modify view templates within the project environment.

Workset Prompt

One of the main challenges for users in Revit is modeling on the correct worksets when working within a workshared model. Unfortunately, users will often open a model and forget to check the active workset before modeling. This can lead to several issues and hours of wasted labor attempting to fix the items modeled on the wrong worket. Here at GeminiBIM, we wanted a simple and effective plug-and-play type solution to help with this problem that many BIM Managers encounter while at the same time instilling good modeling habits for users by making them always verify the active starting workset. We developed the Workset Prompt, a simple solution that is easily implemented and requires virtually no set-up or user training. All that is needed is to install and activate the add-in. Once installed and activated, the user will be prompted to select an active workset when opening workshared Revit models.
