  • Invaluable
    Christopher Sampson | November 03, 2016

    The first time I used this tool I was able to get three days worth of work done in a little more than an hour. Using it that one time more than made up for the price. Since then I have come to rely on it nearly every time that I open Revit. The multitude of features included help with every phase of a Revit project across multiple disciplines. Rushforth Tools helps me keep my Revit projects under budget and on time.

  • Great!
    Danil Poletavkin | March 24, 2016

    It's great app, excel import/export works perfectly! Thank you!

  • Thumbs Up
    Jacob Attardian | November 19, 2015

    This app is great. Have saved me incredible amount of time, importing coordinates from CAD files and relocating 1000s of items accordingly in minutes. Exporting detailed schedules for estimators. etc. etc. I highly recommend it!

  • Pays for itself in about 12 minutes
    Peter Lawton | October 30, 2015

    Once you understand how powerful this tool is, you will see whole new ways of leveraging previously 'locked-up' Revit data to which Mr. Rushforth has provided some awesome keys. At LEAST try the product - you will most likely end up buying it.

  • Can't live without it!
    Dwight King | October 22, 2015

    Within the first few months of using this tool, I have come to rely on it heavily for everyday tasks. The project setup and manager tools, alone, are a vast time saver in automating Revit project setup. The resourcefulness of many of the additional tools, including the parameter transformer makes editing parameters for large scale project easy. I can easily go on and on for each add-in that is within this toolbar but it would too wordy and nobody has time for that! In my opinion, do the 30 day trial and see how useful and powerful it is. I HIGHLY recommend this toolbar for multiple discipline applications.
