About this app
Designing 3D furniture, woodworking, or any product with numerous holes can be a time-consuming and tedious task. The standard subtract command in Revit requires selecting individual items and destroys the subtracted solid. This process can become unbearably long and inefficient. However, with the incredible Revit plugin called Drill, all these issues are resolved, and the design process becomes remarkably faster and smoother.
Streamlined Workflow and Time-saving Functionality
Drill simplifies the design process by allowing users to select all the details and holes in one frame. By simply pressing the "Drill" button, the program takes over and completes the work automatically. The plugin intelligently identifies the details, locates hole-solids (placed on the special "Holes" layer), and subtracts every hole seamlessly. With Drill, users no longer need to make copies of subtracted solids or worry about details being glued together, as the plugin avoids these issues entirely.
Enhanced Features for a Seamless Experience
Drill offers a range of additional features that enhance the overall experience and versatility of the plugin:
- The "Gap" command is available for those who prefer not to divide solids into layers. It operates similarly to the standard subtraction command and requires two groups of solids.
- The program can create gaps between parts for easy docking, ensuring a smooth and seamless design integration.
- Drill can subtract hole-solids from blocks and nested blocks, expanding its functionality and compatibility.
- The option to keep the subtrahend solid provides users with more flexibility in retaining specific elements within their design.
- Pre-selected objects can be used, further streamlining the process and reducing manual selection efforts.
- A progress bar and statistics display in the console keep users informed about the status of the drilling operation.
- The plugin allows users to configure which layer will be used for the hole, offering customization options based on specific project requirements.
- Drill seamlessly supports multiple languages including English, German, Italian, Russian, and Chinese, regardless of the AutoCAD language used.
Optimization and Customization
The Drill plugin is not only feature-rich but also provides the opportunity for customization. The developer offers to optimize the program according to the standards of your company upon request. This flexibility ensures that the plugin can adapt to different design workflows and project requirements. Additionally, the developer welcomes users to make an offer based on their desired customizations.
Drill is a game-changer for designers working with 3D furniture, woodworking, or any product that requires complex hole designs. By radically accelerating the design process, it saves an immense amount of time and effort. The plugin's ability to handle multiple details and holes in one frame, while ensuring that elements are not glued together, sets it apart from the standard subtract command in Revit. With additional features such as gap creation, statistics display, and language support, Drill truly proves to be an indispensable tool for designers. We highly recommend trying out Drill and experiencing the remarkable improvement it brings to your design workflow.
