About this app
Revit is an industry-leading software for building information modeling (BIM), widely used by architects, engineers, and designers. With its powerful capabilities, Revit allows users to create detailed 3D models of buildings and structures. However, managing and loading component families into a Revit project can be a time-consuming and tedious task. That's where "The Librarian" plugin comes in, offering an accessible and efficient way to handle this process.
Effortless Management and Loading of Component Families
The Librarian plugin simplifies the management and loading of component families in Revit. It introduces a caching system that stores families belonging to the active project and any folders containing families on the local computer or network. This means you can organize your families by discipline, specialty, project type, or any other relevant criteria. BIM Managers can even standardize libraries and distribute the pre-cached database file (Librarian.db) to ensure all users have access to the same folder paths.
Salient Features to Enhance Your Workflow
The Librarian offers an array of powerful features that streamline your workflow and enhance productivity:
- Searchable Libraries: Easily search for specific families across multiple folders, saving you valuable time.
- Load Only Required Types: Instead of loading all types of a family, The Librarian allows you to selectively load only the required types. This feature also works seamlessly with Type-Catalogs.
- Preview Images and Type Properties: Each family comes with preview images and type properties, allowing you to quickly assess and select the right component for your project.
- Cached Families: The Librarian caches families across multiple folders, enabling you to load them on demand without the need to preload them into the project template. This saves time and improves project efficiency.
- Library Compatibility: The plugin supports viewing and loading libraries from previous version years, ensuring compatibility and maximizing flexibility.
A Seamless User Experience
The Librarian is designed to remove barriers when it comes to loading families into your Revit projects. Its user-friendly interface simplifies navigation and ensures a seamless user experience. However, it's important to note that the 2.0.0 version is not available for 2019 and previous versions, which will display the older user interface.
The Librarian is an indispensable plugin for anyone working with Revit. Its efficient family management and loading capabilities help save time, enhance productivity, and streamline your workflow. BIM Managers can benefit from its ability to standardize libraries and distribute a pre-cached database file, ensuring uniformity across the team. With its powerful features and user-friendly interface, The Librarian is a must-try plugin for Revit users.
