About this app
In the world of architectural design and building information modeling (BIM), Autodesk® Revit® has established itself as a powerful tool. However, managing the links within Revit project files can often be a time-consuming and tedious process. This is where the External Access Links Manager plugin comes in to save the day.
Streamlined Link Management
The External Access Links Manager add-in is a game-changer for Revit users, providing an efficient solution for viewing and managing links without the need to open each file individually. Once a Revit project file is selected, the user is greeted with a user-friendly interface that displays detailed information about the links within that project.
One of its most impressive features is the ability to interrogate links. The interface provides information such as the project name, link ID, link name, link path type (relative or absolute), link state (loaded, unloaded, or not found), link path, and last saved date. This comprehensive overview allows users to quickly assess the status of each link, saving valuable time and effort.
Simplified Path Management
Re-pathing links is a breeze with the External Access Links Manager. Whether you need to re-path multiple links simultaneously or individually, this plugin has got you covered. It even offers the option to re-path all links of a specific type to a single folder, making it incredibly convenient if you've moved a folder containing your links.
Effortless Loading and Unloading
The External Access Links Manager also simplifies the process of loading and unloading links in Revit. With just a few clicks, you can set the desired loading state for each link. Whether you want them to be loaded or unloaded the next time you open the project, this plugin provides an intuitive interface for managing link loading preferences.
Detailed Reports for Enhanced Insight
The ability to generate TXT or Microsoft Excel reports sets the External Access Links Manager apart from other link management tools. These reports provide a comprehensive overview of every link associated with your Revit project file, including project name, link ID, link name, link path type, link state, link path, and last saved date.
The Microsoft Excel reports go the extra mile by including a 'Link Type' field and automatically applying filtering to the columns, enabling quick and efficient data analysis. Whether you need a TXT file or an Excel workbook, the External Access Links Manager has you covered.
The External Access Links Manager plugin is a must-have tool for any Revit user who wants to streamline their link management process. Its intuitive interface, comprehensive link information, and powerful features make it an indispensable asset for architects, designers, and BIM professionals.
By eliminating the need to open each link individually, simplifying re-pathing, providing effortless loading and unloading options, and generating detailed reports, this plugin saves valuable time and enhances overall productivity. Give the External Access Links Manager a try and take your link management in Revit to the next level.
