Descripción

The COINS Auto-Section Box tool gives you tremendous speed and agility over managing three-dimensional views when analyzing model areas of particular interest. It allows you to quickly create temporary and permanent views to be used for immediate interrogation of the model or for construction document deliverables. This works by allowing you to focus on the model instead of managing views or a view’s properties.

 

Although Revit 2016 added built-in support for creating section boxes from elements, the COINS Auto-Section Box still improves on this with the following time-saving features:

  • Works with elements in linked files.
  • Special handling of grids, section lines, elevation markers, levels, scope boxes, dimensions, and tags.
  • Option to create new views.
  • Toggle the section box on and off to gain a better understanding of the selection within the context of the whole model.
  • Option to arrange the original selection view and the 3d view side-by-side.
  • Align section box to walls, members, or other line-based geometry.
  • Works in Revit 2015/2014/2013 as well as Revit 2019/2018/2017/2016.

  • I can't tell you how much i LOVE this app
    Alexander Ayzenband | abril 19, 2019 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    and I can't believe it's free! 


  • This tool should be required by every firm
    Partha Sanyal | febrero 26, 2019 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    What an add-in.  I'm surprised most firms have not heard about or used this tool on a regular basis.  This is a must add!


  • Great Tool!
    Chris Anderson | febrero 21, 2019 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    This is a great tool!  When I first started doing BIM, I was dragging around 2D sections everywhere to work on walls.  Once I was introduced to the Auto Section, it was a game changer.  I now use this tool all day, every day.  Thank you for developing such a useful tool.  User support response is also very quick and eager to help.


  • Keyboard Shortcut?
    Marco Moreno | noviembre 14, 2018 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Great tool, does what it says it can do. Would be even better to have keyboard shortcuts to quickly view something and turn it off. 


    Jon Smith (Editor) | noviembre 15, 2018

    Hi Marco. You can apply keyboard shortcuts - under Revit Options->User Interface->Keyboard Shortcuts and filter on the "Add-Ins Tab". This works well when applied to the "Quick Auto Section Box" and "Toggle Section Box" commands.


    Marco Moreno | noviembre 16, 2018

    Jon, I didn't see that at first. Thanks for the help! Now this tool will be used daily.

    Michael Coffey | junio 06, 2016 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

  • Simple but useful plugin!
    Nancy Clark | abril 29, 2015 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Have been looking for those kind of apps for a long time. Autodesk Exchange Apps saves me a lot of efforts. I usually tried to find Revit plugins, add ons/add ins with Google. But sometimes it takes me to some unknown forum and I downloaded some extensions with virus. Thanks to autodesk, I don't need to take risk any more.


  • Problems with CoinsTranslate
    Riana Van Rensburg | abril 07, 2015

    Can somebody help me please? I used the coinstranslate app but this morning I received this message. " COINS Translate has reached its monthly translation limit. Please try again after the 17th of the month.

    This is nice, good and quick. :-)


  • Installer Conflicts
    Steven Register | marzo 03, 2015 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    It installs into the current user's AppData folder but then shows up in: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall I expected it to be under HKEY_Current_User. You should be consistent and follow Microsoft standards so it works better with automated systems like computer images and unattended installers.

    La uso desde el comienzo, y simplemente es una herramienta fundamental para modelar. Simple de usar, y va directo al problema. Lo recomiendo!


  • Great app and it's free
    Patrick McMahon | octubre 29, 2014 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    I use this app all the time to review for proper coordination while I am working in Revit. I especially use it while in meetings with team members and clients. Usually everyone starts asking about the app and how to install it for themselves. Great help for everyday. I also had a great experience with their support team today when I had a user error with a lost dialog box. Coins gave me a quick reply email with solutions that allowed me to continue without great difficulty. Thanks Coins....


  • Easy

  • Great tool, roaming user thing though
    Mark Verbeek | octubre 06, 2014 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Installed as part of base image. However a part is in AppData\Roaming (C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\CoinsSectionBoxApp.bundle\) So it's not available to new users. With a base image every user is a new user, sort of. And I have to install it for each user on each machine.


  • Speechless!!!
    Adam Nelson | agosto 26, 2014

  • Could potentially be THE most powerful formatting tool in Revit
    ROBERT NARRACCI | agosto 07, 2013 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Great tool. Is precise numerical (size) control and snapping (to model elements) possible? Can the section box then be applied back to plan/section/elevation views as a crop box?

    This is one of the most beneficial tools that I have installed to date. Our workflow requires us to isolate and work on many highly detailed building components throughout a project. This tool works well and without issue, and has been a huge benefit to us. I have also experienced COINS tech support which is superb and timely as well. Great work!
