A simple app that reports the file sizes of loadable Families in an Autodesk® Revit® Project. The resulting report is grouped by Project Category by default. You can choose to remove the grouping and sort the list of families by Family Name or File Size on disk (in Kb).


Why do you need this App? If you find that your project is slowing down and suspect that some families may have been over-modelled, you can use this App to identify these families quickly. While File Size is not a definite indicator of performance, it is an easily understood metric. In a large project, there may be thousands of components. How does one find the sizes of the individual families? One solution is to save all the loadable families into a folder and then compare their sizes using windows explorer. This App is designed to automate this process and present the information without having to manage the individual family files using Windows Explorer or saving them out for that matter.

This App is part of a series of Apps 'RUTILITIES' by the same publisher.

    It doesn't work in 2023 yet :(

    Thank you for your feedback - The the documentation clearly states that only versions up to Revit 2022 are supported. So there is no way you could have installed it and tried to run it in 2023 and unfortunately your feedback pertains to a non-existent app.

    Why penalize an app ratings for a version that is not available? There are numerous circumstances for not updating it due to changes in API, time available to update a AMAZING FREE utility.

    It does not work on BIM360 files for me, it gives "The given path's format is not supported." error.

  • Excellent tool for the BIM Coordinator Toolbox

    I get consultant models all the time. I never know what kind of modelling discoveries I'm going to make. For a long while I've been wanting a tool like this for my Auditing process. Normally I would export the entire family to my desktop to find the largest families. Wish it was a little faster and could sort results by file size. Other than that, its a great tool for auditing.

    Hi Mark, Thank you for your review. To your question on sorting results by file size, you can do that. All you have to do is to click on the 'File Size' header in the Table view: https://autodesk-exchange-apps-v-1-5-staging.s3.amazonaws.com/data/content/files/images/329ZJSYGLGMP/3536917954730046399/original_952fe0d1-4c9f-4927-bc3b-d32fcfdfcdd6_.PNG

  • Excellent tool for your Revit Toolbox

    Still crashing on XML output

    Pulls out a lot of Imported stuff to the front!. If you have a large file, it is slow, which is understandable.

    this tools enables you to quickly check for families that might be contributing to a large model file size.
