Engipedia Layers Manager PRO
In a nutshell, this add-in allows you to:
- Read material layer properties
- Tag elements to show material layers
- Schedule elements with material layers
- Extract material layers to Excel or CSV
- Custom set what material properties to read (Name, Thickness, Thermal Conductivity etc.)
The add-in analyzes all layered structures in an Autodesk® Revit® project, looking for material names and layer widths (thicknesses). Materials, widths, and material layers with widths can be written into multiline Type parameters of all six-layered categories (Ceilings, Floors, Site-Pads, Roofs, Structural Foundations, and Walls). However, this PRO version features a custom settings of material information to be read, their order and general syntax settings.
These parameters can be used to show tags and schedules.
Tree structure displays all layered structure types, materials, and widths (thicknesses), showing:
- The red color shows missing materials (<By Category>)
- Core layers are underlined
- Structural materials are bold and blue (or red if the material is missing)
Units can be set: millimeters, centimeters, decimeters, meters, decimal inches, decimal feet as well as fractional feet and inches with rounding feature.
The unit format can be set: the number of decimals and trailing zeros. Fractional values can be rounded to the nearest (selected) fraction value.
We have been using this add-in for quite some time and it is good tool to optimize our Schedules and Plans.
We recommend it to every Revit user.
Thank you, Linda!
Hi, this version works also on Revit 2023, please contact Engipedia customer support via email mentioned top-right. Thanks!
Hi, just wanted to let you know that we published a new version of the add-in which supports Revit 2024 and 5 previous versions (Revit 2023 - Revit 2019).
We started using the layer manager a year ago in the office and are very pleased with the product. I streamlines the preparation of assembly schedules immensely and also ensures that your material library is in order.
The support is also phenomenal. Very responsive and very helpful.
Ivan, thank you very much for your positive review!
