Bird Tools - CAD Link Opener

Digitally signed app



Bird Tools - CAD Link Opener is a free Autodesk® Revit® application that adds a DWG link opening functionality that was previously non-existent.


When this command is executed, the user selects the DWG link and it will open in a new Autodesk® AutoCAD® (or any other DWG viewer/editor that the user has associated with the DWG filetype) instance in case it is not already running. Otherwise, the aforementioned file will be opened in the already running instance of the process. Both Desktop and cloud (BIM 360) hosted dwg links are supported.


Such a feature proves to be helpful whenever the user needs to edit the currently linked DWG, by automatically opening this file for him/her and thus saving him/her some time and effort.


Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

  • Can we get this for 2023?
    Evan Stravers | 4월 04, 2023 다운로드 확인 (이것은 무엇입니까?)

    Love this plugin, but starting a new project in Revit 2023 and really wanting it to work with linked site DWGs. Would love an updated version that provides 2023 support.

  • Very useful
    Mariana Jimenez | 10월 21, 2020

    This tool has proven itself very useful. What's more, I had an issue that wouldn't let me use it, and the development team got in touch with me and solved it.

    Keep up the good work!

    Bird Tools (게시자) | 10월 22, 2020

    Always happy to help and thank you for reporting your issue, which enabled us to investigate and include BIM 360 support, which will be a feature coming very soon with v2.0

    Fantastic Add-in, very handy!! great job guys.

    can i suggest an addition to this tool:

    when the selected .dwg file is opened in autocad and then saved, the user is prompted in revit 'Would like to re-load the saved .dwg file' this would be take the add-in to the next level.
