Revit Rebar Bender

How awesome would it be to have an easy to use, rebar drafting drawing tool in revit, getting minimum bend radii for any type of rebar? For some reason Autodesk has never released one of these and you would think it would be easy low hanging fruit for them to tackle. …

Revit Addin

Making a revit addin has been a goal of mine for some time. Yesterday I finally succeeded, complete with ridiculous names, images and tasks completed.

Minimum Joist Bearing Lengths - Revit and Dynamo

The first example they provide on APS is how …

MVVM Magic and Modeless Mayhem in Revit

After making the RAM to Revit tool, I wanted to make a similiar tool, but with ETABs this time.
