About this app
Welcome to our review of the ATHENA Exchange for Autodesk® Revit® Trial Version! In this article, we will explore the features and benefits of this powerful plugin, designed to enhance your Revit experience.
The ATHENA Exchange for Revit is a time-saving tool that allows you to save Revit families, along with their parameters, automatically as ATHENA ATH drawings. This plugin is compatible with Revit versions up until 2019, but for Revit 2020 and higher, it exports ATH Format. To modify the drawings, you will need a minimum of ATHENA 2021. Once the drawings have been modified, they can be easily imported back into Revit, updating the corresponding families and their parameters.
This plugin is particularly beneficial for architects working on Revit models. Often, window, door, or facade elements are represented as "dummy" families, which lack detailed information. With ATHENA Exchange for Revit, architects can export these dummy families and collaborate with planners who can process them in the ATHENA environment. The dummy outlines are replaced with appropriate profile outlines, adding more detail and accuracy to the elements. Planners can also modify element parameters and add specific profile information. Once the elements have been elaborated, they can be seamlessly imported back into the Revit model. The dummy families are automatically updated with the correct profile outlines, ensuring a smooth and efficient workflow.
Limitations and Full Version
It is important to note that the ATHENA Exchange for Autodesk® Revit® Trial Version is a restricted version of the plugin. At any given time, users can only export one family or import one DWG. However, for those who require the ability to export or import multiple objects simultaneously, the full version of ATHENA Exchange for Revit is available. This full version unlocks the full potential of the plugin, allowing for a more comprehensive and seamless experience.
