  • Revit 2024
    Laurens Scholten | May 15, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great app, but will there be a 2024 version.

    The 2024 version is pending review by Autodesk to post in the App Store. In the meantime, it is available for $99 payable via PayPal at https://www.paypal.me/BoostYourBIM.

  • Spectacular and Unique
    Phyllis Robbins | October 02, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Just had to add a comment for 2018!  Our teams with large campus projects no longer groan when it is time for the annual upgrade.  Harry, we could not do this without you!

    There are other solutions floating around in cyberspace but this one is the Holy Grail. Other upgrade tools left all worksets in central file owned by the individual running the upgrade add-in. This tool relinquishes worksets as we needed. Absolutely terrific!

  • update for 2018
    mickael auque | July 11, 2017

    a futur update for revit 2018?

    Harry Mattison (Publisher) | July 21, 2017

    Yes, a 2018 version is available. Please make the purchase here through the Autodesk Store then contact me at https://boostyourbim.wordpress.com/contact/ for the 2018 version

  • You don't need this app. Use the free Content Batch Utility
    David Polkinghorn | March 31, 2017

    The free "Content Batch Utility" used to be included with Revit and it still works on version 2017. It's upgrading our entire family library as I type this. Here's a link to the download: https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/revit-architecture-forum/batch-updating-families-to-new-version-how-are-you-doing-it/td-p/6312790 and directions from Autodesk: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/revit-products/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Batch-upgrade-Revit-families.html

    Harry Mattison (Publisher) | July 21, 2017

    If Revit shows any warnings when upgrading your files, the free batch utility will not work. There are also many other features that this tool offers.

  • upgarde of central file
    sampath kumar | November 17, 2016

    Can this will upgrade the revit with central file. I have files with central file from our contractors around 150 models per station . I want the app to Upgarde (.rvt 2014- .rvt2015) all our 150 central files from contractor.

    Harry Mattison (Publisher) | July 21, 2017

    Yes, this tool will do that for you.

  • It Works!
    Ramiro Zamarripa | September 16, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It does what it says...just wish it could do batch project folders (ignoring any dialogue boxes that come up)..so I can go to sleep and wake up with updated projects...sigh! Also, wish it could do it while I can continue working with Revit rather than waiting for proces to end. Is there a work-around anyone?

  • Great Time Saver
    Edward Livingston | July 29, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have been using the Bulk File Upgrader for years. The best and easiest add-in to use. I recommend this to anyone who needs to upgrade files. I could not imagine opening each file individually in Revit 2017 and saving it back down. Incredible time saving for myself and my employer. Thank you Harry for your hard work creating the upgrader.

  • Works Great with a few limitations
    Vincent Miller | December 04, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This program is amazing. It works great in all ways that you would expect. I have discovered that if you copy look up tables to the 2016 program data folder the upgrader will insert these for you as well!

  • Saved us days
    Bill Debevc | November 03, 2015

    We asked Harry to add some features to the batch file upgrader for us. Not only did Harry deliver on time and on budget, he saved LPA many days of upgrading models. If you have more than a few models to upgrade get this. If you need it to do something more, just ask Harry. You will be surprised.

  • A little steep for the price... version 2.0 for 2015 worked
    Krigh Bachmann | October 28, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Version 2.0 for 2015 worked however was surprised to find it didn't have an option to search subfolders and maintain a folder structure. I want to upgrade the library, but this means I have to copy them into a folder, upgrade and move them back into the old folder. It's useful for as a BIM Manager of a practice, but $99 is a bit much for an open, save and close utility. Consider I can buy whole tool palettes for $50 more.

  • Something I noticed.....
    Charles Berteaux IV | October 07, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Weren't your previous releases free? You offer a link below to it even.....And now its 99.00?? And you do realize that this will be the last time anyone needs to probably "Bulk" convert anything because this 2016 is the last version of Revit Autodesk is releasing??? And your tool does not inherently or give the option to just save over the current file???? Just my observations....

    Seth Shannon | January 08, 2016

    2016 is the last version that they're allowing upgrading of non-subscription licensing. That's not the last Revit version ever.

  • Windows 10
    Bob Blanchard | September 08, 2015

    Will not install on Windows 10 x64, missing DLL error. Not sure what the installer is looking for as in the dll

    Harry Mattison (Publisher) | September 09, 2015

    Hi - Please contact me via https://boostyourbim.wordpress.com/contact/ so we can resolve this.

  • Great tool, but need 2017 version!
    Brett Kirkwood | May 05, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Can you please advise if the lastest upgrader version is intended to be released with each Revit release? I have 2017 now but no bulk file upgrader to match?

    Greg Biallas | June 16, 2015

    The recently updated version 3.0 works like a charm with 2016.

    Luke Maletsky | May 09, 2016

    I would also like to know if and when a 2017 version is forthcoming and when it might available? Otherwise I might as well start the process of updating manually.

    Harry Mattison (Publisher) | May 17, 2016

    The 2017 version has been submitted to Autodesk but not yet posted by them. In the meantime, you can purchase it by sending $99 via PayPal to boostyourbim@gmail.com

  • Fantastic
    Brooke Lawton | April 21, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    A massive time saver. Thanks for this.

  • Awesome Tool!
    Greg Neuhaus | April 10, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've been searching for an OEM's library of parts for Revit. Each time I open one of the many families, I get the upgrade request warning (AutoDesk should have embedded this option). Sweet! Thanks!

  • Great Timesaver
    Eddy Bussiere | December 23, 2014

    Great tool Harry, Thanks!

    Saved me so much time! Thank you!!

  • Very useful, but has a small bug
    Andrew Harle | August 04, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    A great time saver, but you need to have at least on Revit file in the first level of the folder you have selected, otherwise the addin refuses to run, even though it will upgrade files within sub-folders successfully.

    Harry Mattison (Publisher) | August 10, 2014

    Hi Andrew - Thank you for mentioning this. This new install resolves that issue: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwszsfY3OsZHaVhmX3VJSkVleTA/edit?usp=sharing Regards Harry

  • Big Time Saver
    Craig Gibeaut | July 25, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    As a manufacturer, we currently create our family content using Revit 2012, to make sure we have older versions available for our customers, just in case. This utility upgraded our families to 2014 and 2015 without a problem. The Help document should mention that everything in all sub-folders of the source folder will also be upgraded.

  • Nice one Harry
    Matt Taylor | July 16, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works nicely, thanks Harry. The only issue I found is that the main source folder must have a Revit file in it, otherwise a warning comes up. Add a file to the main source folder, and it all works fine. Thanks - it saves me maintaining my version. ;)

  • It works..well sort of
    Patrick Olstad | July 01, 2014

    It appears to me that upon testing of the utility that it will only work with Revit 2013 and newer versions? Is this true or is there something that I am missing? It would be great to get this tool to work with older versions, I love the concept and it worked pretty good on the 2013 files that I upgraded to 2014. One more thing, it would be great to be able to rename the files as we have a naming convention that includes the Revit version.
