About this app
Efficiently managing and publishing documents is a crucial aspect of any architectural or construction project. With the Revit plugin, Docuflow PDF, this process becomes a breeze. This powerful tool allows users to publish high-quality PDF, DWG, DWF, DWFx, IFC, and drawing lists in a single operation, saving time and effort. In this review, we will explore the features and benefits of Docuflow PDF, and how it can revolutionize your document workflow.
Simplified Document Publishing
Docuflow PDF eliminates the need for manual selection of sheets, matching paper sizes, and separating print jobs. With a simple selection of sheets, this plugin takes care of all the complicated tasks, such as detecting sheet sizes and orientation. By streamlining the process, Docuflow PDF ensures that all your documents are exported to PDF in a single operation, just like the sheets in Autodesk Revit.
Effortless Sheet Selection
Finding the desired sheets is now quicker and easier with Docuflow PDF. The plugin offers project revision sorting and allows users to search sheets based on any text. In addition to alphabetical order, Docuflow PDF also sorts sheets by revision, simplifying the selection process. This intelligent feature groups drawings inside the last revision, ensuring a more organized and efficient workflow.
Comprehensive Drawing List
A proper drawing issue is incomplete without a revised drawing list. Docuflow PDF seamlessly integrates with Archigrafix Reports (sold separately) to generate on-the-fly drawing lists in PDF format. This integration saves time and ensures that all relevant information is included in the final document package.
Docuflow PDF stands out as one of the fastest document publishers for Revit. Built from the ground up, this plugin eliminates the need for annoying saving dialogs prompting for filenames. With Docuflow PDF, you can expect PDF files to be published around 65% faster than other popular tools like Bluebeam. This exceptional speed enhances productivity and allows you to focus on what really matters - your project.
Advanced Filename Rules
Customization is key when it comes to document management. Docuflow PDF offers advanced filename rules that support various parameters, including sheet and project parameters, sheet shared parameters, and date pages. This flexibility allows users to compose unique filename rules for PDF and DWG files, unlocking unlimited possibilities for organizing and categorizing documents.
Automation for Further Flexibility
Docuflow PDF goes beyond document publishing by offering automation capabilities. Users can run tasks, batch files, or call any program before or after the publishing job, providing further flexibility in their workflow. Whether you need to upload PDF files to an FTP server or integrate with document control software, Docuflow PDF makes it possible with just a few clicks.
Convenient Paper Prints
In addition to digital documents, Docuflow PDF allows you to print your Revit drawings directly to your office's small and large printers. Simply select the sheets you want to print and press publish. This feature is particularly useful for reviews, meetings, and archival purposes. You can also publish PDF files simultaneously while making paper copies, ensuring both digital and physical accessibility.
Configurable Office Standards
For BIM managers, ensuring document consistency is paramount. Docuflow PDF makes it easy to configure the usage of office standards via the revit.ini file. Printing styles, PDF, DWG, and IFC standards can all be enforced office-wide, enabling a standardized approach to document publishing. By adhering to your office standards, you can enhance collaboration and ensure a cohesive project workflow.
Rich Information and Model Location
Docuflow PDF allows you to export project information and sheet parameters as PDF metadata. This rich information becomes readily available for document control, can be displayed in your PDF viewer, or accessed through Windows Explorer. Additionally, Docuflow PDF stores the original Revit model location in a parameter visible in your PDF viewer. This feature enables you to deliver Quality Assurance information for your documents, saving valuable time in locating the model.
Licenses and Pricing
Docuflow PDF offers a variety of licensing options, including floating, desktop perpetual, and desktop subscription licenses. The plugin can be purchased securely online using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) on the Docuflow website. Payment processing is handled through their trusted partner, Paypal, with all major credit cards accepted. Please note that this app uses a custom installer, not the standard App Store installer.
