Effortless Setup and Seamless Integration
Setting up Family Browser is a breeze, and you have the flexibility to choose where your content resides. Whether it's on your local machine, LAN, or any cloud-based file location, this plugin supports popular platforms like Dropbox, OneDrive, Microsoft Exchange, and Autodesk BIM 360 out of the box. This allows for effortless collaboration and easy access to families, regardless of their location.
Family Browser integrates seamlessly into the Revit interface, appearing as a floating palette that is fully integrated into the UI. This tight integration ensures a smooth workflow without the need to switch between different applications, enhancing efficiency and reducing time spent on family management tasks.
Efficient Family Loading and Customizable Previews
Gone are the days of tediously loading families through the "Load Family" option and manually searching through numerous folders within Windows Explorer. Family Browser allows you to simply drag and drop families to load or insert them directly into your project. This significantly speeds up the loading process, making it more efficient and hassle-free.
One standout feature of Family Browser is the customizable icon previews. Before loading a family, you can see exactly what you are about to insert, eliminating any guesswork. This feature is especially useful when working with a project containing multiple family types, as it helps prevent the insertion of unwanted types and ensures accurate placement.
Enhanced Searching Capabilities and Metadata Tagging
With Family Browser, searching for families within your library becomes a breeze. The plugin offers instant feedback and allows you to search by various parameters such as family name, type name, category, parameter value, or customizable tags. This comprehensive search functionality ensures that you can quickly locate the exact family you need, saving valuable time and effort.
Metadata tagging is another powerful feature of Family Browser. You can add tags to any family, providing additional information for easy searching. This helps in organizing and categorizing families based on specific criteria, making it easier to find them in the future. Additionally, users can also star-rate families, providing valuable feedback to BIM managers about the popularity and usefulness of different families.
Analytics and User Management
Family Browser offers valuable insight into the usage and performance of the plugin through its analytics feature. BIM managers can keep track of the most commonly used families, tabs, and groups. This information allows for data-driven decision-making regarding the optimization and refinement of family libraries, ensuring that the most popular and relevant families are readily available.
The user management feature of Family Browser allows administrators to assign users as either Admin or User. While users can leverage the benefits of Family Browser, they do not have access to modify the setup, ensuring data integrity and preventing accidental modifications.
Silent Deployment and Trial Version
Family Browser offers silent deployment options, making it convenient for firms to roll out the plugin to their user base effortlessly. This eliminates the need for individual installations and simplifies the implementation process, saving time and resources.
For those who want to experience the full capabilities of Family Browser, a 21-day fully functional trial version is available. This trial period gives users ample time to explore and evaluate the plugin, ensuring it meets their specific requirements before making a purchase decision.
