About this app
If you are an avid user of Autodesk Revit, you are probably aware of the time-consuming process of selecting multiple elements that match your current selection. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem - the Select Similar plugin. This handy tool allows you to automatically select multiple categories, families, and types that match your current selection(s), saving you valuable time and effort.
The Power of Select Categories
One of the standout features of the Select Similar plugin is its ability to select multiple Autodesk Revit categories. Whether you are working on a project or a specific view, this plugin streamlines the selection process by automatically selecting categories that match your current selection(s). Gone are the days of individually selecting each element - with Select Categories, you can select multiple categories at once, making your workflow more efficient and productive.
Effortlessly Select Families
In addition to selecting categories, Select Similar also allows you to select multiple top-level families that match your current selection(s). Whether you are working with multiple families or categories, this plugin has got you covered. Say goodbye to the tedious task of manually selecting families one by one - with Select Families, you can automatically select the families you need, saving you time and energy.
A Game Changer: Select Types
One feature that sets Select Similar apart from other selection plugins is its Select Types functionality. Unlike the standard Select All Instances command, which limits you to selecting only one type, Select Types allows you to select multiple types. This is a game changer, especially when working on complex projects with various types of elements. With Select Types, you have more flexibility and control over your selections, ultimately improving your overall workflow.
Another remarkable aspect of Select Similar is its ability to select instances based on specific parameters. By using the Select Instances feature, you can choose to only select instances that exactly match your current selection. This level of precision ensures that you select only the elements you need, making your modeling process more accurate and efficient.
What truly sets Select Similar apart is its compatibility with traditionally "unselectable" elements. Whether you need to select lines, masking regions, revision clouds, or other built-in categories, this plugin allows you to effortlessly select them. Furthermore, it works seamlessly with normal loadable families, making it a versatile tool that can be used in various situations.
Conveniently Located Ribbon Button
One of the most convenient aspects of Select Similar is its placement on the Modify tab of the ribbon. This means that the ribbon button is always easily accessible when you have elements selected. No need to navigate through multiple menus - the plugin is right where you need it, allowing for a seamless and intuitive user experience.
In conclusion, the Select Similar plugin for Autodesk Revit is a game-changing tool that streamlines the selection process, saving you time and effort. With its ability to select multiple categories, families, and types, as well as its compatibility with traditionally "unselectable" elements, this plugin enhances your modeling workflow and improves overall productivity. Say goodbye to manual selection and hello to the power of Select Similar - give it a try and experience the difference for yourself!
