About this app
In the world of building information modeling (BIM), Autodesk® Revit® is widely recognized as a powerful software for creating 3D models and architectural designs. However, the process of generating accurate and error-free documentation from these models can be time-consuming and tedious. This is where the Smart Documentation plugin comes to the rescue.
Automate Documentation with Ease
Smart Documentation is a time-saving BIM software that simplifies and automates the creation of accurate documentation from Revit models. With its robust features, this plugin overcomes limitations in native Revit functionality, enabling designers to complete deliverables in the shortest time possible.
One of the standout features of Smart Documentation is its ability to automatically create dimensions and tags from Revit models. This functionality can be used in existing views or combined with creating new views or assemblies, making it ideal for automating shop drawing creation. Gone are the days of placing dimensions one by one, as this plugin streamlines the process and saves valuable time.
Enhance Efficiency and Control
Smart Documentation goes above and beyond native Revit capabilities by offering much better tagging control than Revit's Tag All feature. With this plugin, you have improved overall efficiency and greater control over the tagging process, resulting in more accurate and reliable documentation.
Updating drawings is a breeze with Smart Documentation. With just one click, you can effortlessly update your drawings, eliminating the need for manual data entry. The ability to save and reuse your rules for placing dimensions and tags, as well as creating views, further enhances time savings, allowing you to focus on high-value modeling tasks.
Versatility and Collaboration
Smart Documentation offers all-around versatility, making it suitable for various disciplines such as architecture, structural engineering, MEP engineering, and more. The plugin allows you to sort and number Revit elements in any way you need, avoiding the need for manual data entry. It also enables you to extract Revit data that is otherwise invisible, quickly populating project elements with valuable information for use in drawings.
Collaboration and quality control are made easier with Smart Documentation. The plugin opens up new possibilities for collaboration, ensuring seamless integration with project teams. Moreover, it provides a robust solution for importing Excel spreadsheets into Revit and keeping them in sync when the Excel file is modified. This feature alone provides immense value to users who regularly work with data from external sources.
Professional and Reliable Documentation
One of the key benefits of using Smart Documentation is the enhancement it brings to drawing quality. By automating tasks and consistently applying rules, this plugin ensures professional and reliable project documentation. It eliminates human error, reducing the chance of mistakes and ensuring consistency in deliverables across multiple projects and colleagues.
Smart Documentation also allows you to create legends and specification tables, generating QR codes for added convenience. Additionally, the plugin enables you to generate rebar images, transforming 3D rebar data into easy-to-read 2D images containing rebar segment values.
If you're a Revit user looking to simplify and streamline your documentation process, Smart Documentation is a must-have plugin. Its time-saving features, automation capabilities, and enhanced control over tagging and dimensioning make it an invaluable tool for designers across various disciplines. By eliminating manual data entry and human error, this plugin allows you to focus on high-value modeling tasks, resulting in professional and reliable project documentation.
With its versatility, collaboration possibilities, and ease of use, Smart Documentation is a game-changer in the world of Revit plugins. Give it a try and experience the benefits of faster, more efficient documentation today!
