    Awesome app for BIM Manager. Highly recommended

  • Dynamic Tool with Amazing Customer Service
    Luke Rose | September 28, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    For the price you get a lot of functionality with the this app, download the free trial and you will not be disappointed. PLUS, the customer service David offers is wonderful. We were in the middle of a large job and my computer died, I had to get a whole new machine and threw a request into Rushforth Customer service to get my license transferred. I received a response within 10 minutes and was up and running again with the app in 11 minutes. Great job! Keep up the good work!

  • Disappearing data after export
    Robertas Suminskas | February 15, 2015

    Your program doesn't export all data to excel. Most of information are missing comparing with other tools.

    David Rushforth (Publisher) | February 15, 2015

    Please indicate an example of any data not available. If you make a request to any additional exports can most likely be made available. The Parameter Transformer tool supports all parameter data in the entire Revit project. It also supports additional properties and functions not available from tools charging huge fees for individual tools.

    Michal Dengusiak | April 16, 2015

    I have no idea how you use this tool. I am using this on daily basis and it excellent for me.
