About this app
NonicaTab PRO is a powerful Revit plugin designed to enhance your workflow and streamline the use of Dynamo scripts within Autodesk Revit. With its user-friendly interface and customizable features, this plugin allows you to access and deploy your Dynamo scripts like a professional. In this review, we will explore the key features and benefits of NonicaTab PRO, and how it can significantly improve your experience with Revit.
Customizable Toolbar Profiles
One of the standout features of NonicaTab PRO is its ability to create a new Revit toolbar with 3 profiles, each containing 12 customizable buttons. These profiles, namely Default, Beta, and Gamma, can be easily switched at runtime to use different sets of buttons. This means that you can have independent sets of buttons for each Revit version, allowing for a more efficient and organized workflow.
Efficient Script Execution
NonicaTab PRO runs Dynamo in the background and provides a seamless execution experience. It pops up input windows, such as Data Shapes nodes or the Input Window, allowing you to input values and parameters effortlessly. Additionally, NonicaTab PRO notifies you if the script was run successfully or encountered any errors or warnings, ensuring that you are aware of any potential issues.
Import and Export Toolbars
The PRO version of NonicaTab also offers the ability to import and export your toolbars, making it easy to share them with colleagues and across different computers. By creating a file in your selected location, you can import the toolbar on any other computer with NonicaTab PRO. This feature is incredibly useful for collaborative projects or when working on multiple machines.
Interactive Graphs and Execution Data
With NonicaTab PRO, you can visualize how your Dynamo scripts are being run using built-in interactive graphs. By accessing the Settings, you can view the execution data and select datasets from your connected toolbars. This feature enables you to analyze and explore your team's execution data, providing valuable insights into the performance of your scripts.
Automated Deployments and Updates
NonicaTab PRO simplifies the process of deploying your toolbars to multiple computers by offering the Connect feature in Settings. By connecting the target computers to a shared location file (such as Dropbox or OneDrive), you can automate the deployment process. Whenever you export from your computer and overwrite the connected file, the target computers will automatically update their toolbars, ensuring that everyone is working with the latest version.
Hotkeys, Playlists, and Scheduling Settings
NonicaTab PRO takes customization to the next level with its Hotkeys, Playlists, and Scheduling settings. You can set keyboard shortcuts to run your Dynamo scripts/playlists without searching for the corresponding button. Playlists allow you to create a list of Dynamo scripts that are executed consecutively, streamlining your workflow. Additionally, you can easily schedule scripts to run at specific intervals or trigger them based on certain actions, such as opening, saving, or syncing your project.
Dynamo Packages Made Easy
One of the standout features of NonicaTab PRO is its ability to seamlessly handle Dynamo packages. When exporting your toolbars, NonicaTab PRO automatically detects all the installed Dynamo packages required to run the scripts in your toolbars. This ensures that the importing computer has all the necessary packages, eliminating the need for manual installation. This feature is available for Dynamo scripts created from Revit 2020 or later versions and Dynamo 2.3 or later versions.
Input Detector and Node Freezing
The latest release of NonicaTab PRO introduces an Input Detector feature. If you want NonicaTab PRO to ask for input values before executing your Dynamo script, simply set the node as "Is Input." This allows for greater control and flexibility in script execution. Additionally, in the new release, you can freeze or unfreeze nodes directly from Revit, making it easier to manage and modify your scripts.
Additional Features for Power Users
For those who prefer to set up their own icons and scripts, the PRO version of NonicaTab offers a range of additional features. The Refresh All feature allows you to update all Dynamo scripts in your NonicaTab buttons with a single click, making it effortless to keep your scripts up to date. Furthermore, NonicaTab PRO allows you to select any jpg or png image of any size to be automatically converted and included in your NonicaTab button, giving you complete customization control.
NonicaTab PRO is a game-changer for anyone working with Dynamo scripts in Autodesk Revit. It offers a plethora of powerful features that enhance your productivity and efficiency, making it an indispensable tool for professionals. From customizable toolbar profiles to automated deployments and seamless package handling, NonicaTab PRO streamlines your workflow and provides a seamless user experience. If you want to take your Dynamo script execution to the next level, I highly recommend giving NonicaTab PRO a try.
