About this app
Autodesk® Revit® is a powerful software that allows architects, engineers, and designers to create 3D models and documentation for building projects. However, as projects become more complex, managing and organizing the elements within the software can become a tedious task. That's where the "Rename Elements" plugin comes in.
Effortless Renaming for Multiple Family Types
The "Rename Elements" plugin offers a seamless solution to automatically rename various Family Types within your Revit project. With just a few clicks, you can save time and maintain a well-organized project. This plugin supports the automatic renaming of Door, Window, Column, Text Note, Model Text, Filled Region, Dimension, and Spot Dimension Family Types.
Let's say you have a door Family Type in your project that needs to be renamed. Using the "Rename Elements" plugin, you can simply change the desired properties and click the Rename button. The Family Type will be automatically renamed according to the specified naming structure. For example, a door could be renamed to "DO1 Ext 1000mm x 1000mm ... Suffix Text". This level of automation eliminates the need for manual renaming, saving you valuable time and effort.
Customization Options for Ultimate Flexibility
The "Rename Elements" plugin provides a range of customization options to suit your specific needs. You can choose which parameters to include in a new name, such as units and unit symbols. Additionally, you can add a suffix or prefix to the existing element name for further customization.
Let's say you have a Text Note Family Type named "Arial...Schedule". By using the "Rename Elements" plugin, you can specify the desired properties and the new name will be automatically generated. For example, the new name could be "2mm Arial Black ... Schedule". This level of customization allows you to maintain consistency across your project while ensuring clarity in element naming.
Streamlined Workflow with Shortcut Options
The "Rename Elements" plugin also offers shortcut options to further streamline your workflow. You can set a shortcut, such as "RNM", for the Rename command. This allows you to quickly rename Family Types without having to navigate through multiple menus. The convenience of shortcuts ensures that your productivity remains high, enabling you to focus on the design and documentation process.
Efficiency and Error Checking
Before applying the renaming process, the "Rename Elements" plugin presents a dialog that provides valuable information. This dialog displays how many elements will be renamed and identifies any potential naming errors. This thorough error checking ensures that your project remains accurate and avoids any inadvertent mistakes in the renaming process.
The "Rename Elements" plugin for Autodesk® Revit® is a valuable tool that significantly enhances your workflow and organization within the software. By automating the renaming of Family Types, this plugin saves you time and effort, allowing you to focus on the creative aspects of your projects. With customization options and shortcut functionalities, the plugin offers flexibility and efficiency.
