About this app
The Family Type Rename plugin for Autodesk Revit is a powerful tool that automates the process of renaming Wall, Roof, Ceiling, Floor, Building Pad, and Toposolid Family Types. With its simple yet efficient functionality, this plugin helps save time and keeps your Revit files organized.
Streamlined Renaming Process
One of the standout features of the Family Type Rename plugin is its ability to automatically rename Family Types with a specified naming structure. Whether you're creating a new Wall, Roof, Ceiling, Floor, Building Pad, or Toposolid, all you need to do is adjust the properties and click the Family Type Rename button. The plugin will then rename the Family Types accordingly.
For even faster renaming, the plugin allows you to set a shortcut. For example, you can assign "RNM" as the shortcut for the Rename Family Types command. This feature is especially handy when working on larger projects with numerous Family Types to rename.
Improved Type Structure Recognition
By automatically renaming Wall, Roof, Ceiling, Floor, Building Pad, and Toposolid Family Types, the Family Type Rename plugin ensures easy recognition of the Type structure when choosing from the dropdown list. The new naming structure provides a clear and organized way to identify the characteristics of each Type.
For instance, let's consider Wall Types. The plugin can generate new names such as "Int220 Pla10//Bri200//Pla10" or "Int225 Til5/Pla10//Bri150/Air50//Pla10". These names reflect the various attributes and properties of the Wall Type, making it easier to select the desired Type quickly and efficiently.
User-Friendly Interface and Error Handling
The Family Type Rename plugin features a user-friendly interface that allows users to specify naming options and choose Family Types in the Settings. Before initiating the renaming process, the plugin provides a dialog that displays essential information:
- The number of Types that will be renamed
- The old name and the new name
- Any potential naming errors
This dialog ensures that you have full visibility and control over the renaming process, preventing any unintended changes or errors.
The Family Type Rename plugin for Revit is an invaluable tool for architects, engineers, and designers who work extensively with Wall, Roof, Ceiling, Floor, Building Pad, and Toposolid Family Types. Its streamlined renaming process, improved Type structure recognition, and user-friendly interface make it a must-have plugin for anyone seeking to enhance their workflow in Revit.
By automating the renaming process, this plugin saves time and effort, allowing users to focus on their design tasks rather than manual data entry. Whether you're working on a small-scale project or a large-scale development, the Family Type Rename plugin is an essential addition to your Revit toolkit.
