About this app


Autodesk Revit is a highly versatile software that provides architects, engineers, and designers with the tools they need to create stunning 3D models and documentation for construction projects. However, working with CAD imports in Revit projects can sometimes be a challenging and time-consuming task. That's where CADTracer comes in.

CADTracer, developed by SpiceTools Technologies Limited, is a game-changing plugin designed specifically for Autodesk Revit users. Its primary purpose is to replace CAD imports with Revit line work, offering a seamless transition from imported CAD files to fully integrated Revit models. With CADTracer, you can easily convert 3D imports to 2D linework and vice versa, giving you precise control over line weights and styles.

Mapping Line Styles with CAD Layers

One of CADTracer's standout features is its ability to map Revit line styles with CAD layers. This functionality allows you to achieve precise control over line weights and styles, ensuring that your linework matches your project requirements perfectly. Whether you're working on a complex architectural design or a detailed engineering project, CADTracer empowers you to create professional-grade linework effortlessly.

Revit Families: Symbolic or Model Lines

CADTracer takes Revit's family creation process to a whole new level by allowing you to generate traced lines within Revit families. You have the option to choose between symbolic lines or model lines, depending on the family template you're using. This flexibility ensures that your linework accurately represents the intended plan representation, making CADTracer an invaluable tool for architects and designers.

Seamless Tracing and Conversion

With CADTracer, tracing and converting CAD blocks to Revit families has never been easier. By using CADTracer as the first step in the family creation process, you can effortlessly generate a working version of a Revit family with minimal effort. Whether you're working on creating complex models or need to convert existing CAD blocks, CADTracer streamlines the process, saving you time and effort.

Saving and Sharing Presets

Another noteworthy feature of CADTracer is its ability to save layer mapping assignments to external JSON files. This functionality allows you to save time by tracing imports with similar layer standards repeatedly. Additionally, you can share layer mapping definitions with other users, fostering collaboration and ensuring consistency throughout your team's projects.
