The Color Splasher is a tool by BIM One that allows you to graphically visualize and verify the information in a model. It filters, selects and colors elements based on the values of a defined parameter to let you visualise if there are errors or a lack of information. User first selects the desired category, then selects a parameter and finally, sets colors for each value of this parameter.



  • Quick Review of potential problems
  • Facilitates monitoring of model quality
  • Faster than creating view filters
  • Override multiple categories at once

    alex wda | February 05, 2017

    throws error, says "Please select worksheet", and cant fid any

    Duncan Lithgow | February 13, 2017

    Why do expect this tool to import? This tool is for manipulating objects in your model.

    Dick Barath | August 26, 2015

    Sure am missing this in 2016 - do not plan on updating? Could we please see this shortly in 2017 - color splasher works much better and quicker than playing around with filters. I like to distinguish my wall types by coloring them. Thank you

    Alexandre Cantin | August 26, 2015

    Hi Mr Barath, We are planning to update the Color Splasher to 2016 this fall. Thank you for your good rating!

  • Great Add-on(s)! (please update for 2016)
    David Thirlwell | July 24, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Really a great addition to Revit along with the other BIM One tools! The features in Color Splasher are really easy to use. It would be great to have a way to convert schemata to/from Filters. I'd also really like to use Color Splasher in Revit 2016 (as well as Export/Import Excel and NWC Batch Exporter).

  • Nice

  • SUPER !!

    the addin is really great (Y) I wonder if you can add hatch patterns besides the colors Also can you add a feature to control the revit links; coloring its model elements and so on, that will help in coordination.

    Can you give me a valid e-mail to contact you ? I sent a mail to the support (support@bimone.com) two weeks ago and haven't got an answer yet !!

    Alexandre Cantin | June 10, 2015

    Hi Noran, sorry for the delay. The support@bimone.com is valid but exceptionally, I received your mail in my Spam box. Here's my answer: - We didn't discuss about patterns while developping the app but I will check that with the DEV team. - We can't override Revit links by element but I agree it would be a great feature to add if the API allows it in the next versions. Best regards Thank you for the good rating! Much appreciated!

    noran mansour | June 11, 2015

    Thanks for your kind reply, I’m looking forward to hearing from you any further updates :)

  • Great for QA
    Duncan Lithgow | April 20, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a fantastic way to quickly do some QA. Color things by the parameter you want to check, or hand pick colors for some specific parameter values you want to highlight. Used in a 3d view with unrelated things hidden works great. Only downside is that it's messing with the crop regions of the 3d views I use it on. They need to be deleted and recreated - not really a big problem once you understand not to use on carefully set up 3d views..

  • Great!

    Please add automatic update color.
