  • Must have plug-in for anyone exporting data
    sky allen | August 10, 2023

    I would recommend this plug-in to every Revit user.  I have been using Revit for coming on a decade and the export possibilities that this plug-in enables are irreplacable. It is plug-ins like this that allow revit to function at its full capacity.
