Roombook-Areabook-Buildingbook Extension for Autodesk Revit 2015

Release Date: 2014-06-16

The Roombook Areabook Buildingbook Extension for Autodesk® Revit® 2015, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2015, Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2015, Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2015, and Autodesk® Revit LT™ 2015 software helps you with the quantification of your projects:

- Roombook calculates the room-related surface areas of walls, floors and ceiling elements as well as room circumferences and furnishing elements for a complete material calculation of the interior finish.

- Areabook calculates living and net areas by rooms and room groups as well as net, gross and construction floor areas by projects for a comprehensive floor area calculation.

- Buildingbook calculates the material-related quantities of constructive building parts for a detailed quantification of materials under consideration of layers, parts and components.

In addition to the automated detection of surfaces, areas and volumes, this extension helps users configure these elements manually to local requirements and country-specific standards (International and DIN/VOB), as well as achieve more accurate model take-offs. Quantified results can be exported to Microsoft® Excel® software, comma-separated CSV text files, native Revit® schedule tables and to DWF files for further quantification like Autodesk® Quantity Takeoff and Autodesk® Navisworks®.

*Autodesk Revit 2015 software is only available as part of the Autodesk® Building Design Suite 2015 Premium and Ultimate Editions and Autodesk® Infrastructure Design Suite 2015 Ultimate Edition.

Batch Print for Autodesk Revit 2015

Batch Print provides an easy way to print a large number of drawings (views and sheets) from a Autodesk® Revit® 2015, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2015, Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2015, or Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2015 software project.  

After preparing the default printer and the Revit software project, use Batch Print to send any number of drawings to the printer and to control the order in which they print. When you start the print job, Batch Print manages the printing of the drawings, requiring no further interaction from you. If desired, you can monitor the progress of the print job using a status dialog.

*Autodesk Revit 2015 software is only available as part of the Autodesk® Building Design Suite 2015 Premium and Ultimate Editions and Autodesk® Infrastructure Design Suite 2015 Ultimate Edition.
