I have been receiving a few requests for access to files that were previously linked to What Revit Wants via Google Drive. Somewhere along the line, Google (in its wisdom) decided to change security requirements and now my inbox has been filling up with ‘Share requests’. My opinion on Google business practices in general is pretty well known after this saga.
Some of the more popular files requested in recent times have been:
CurvedMullionLJ.zip – from post here about Curved Mullions
SetMarksToElementID.zip – from post here
PointCloud.zip – from post here
Generic Label.rfa – from post here
URL Text Symbol Annotation D download.rfa – from post here
In any case, I have now decided to move the hosting of What Revit Wants files and resources to wrw.is and you can view and download them all below.
Way back in 2008, I was super excited about all things Revit and started What Revit Wants. I’m still super excited about Revit and BIM, and this is just a quick note to say thank you for all of your recent and ongoing support (like your replies here and here). What Revit Wants is not going away! We have had an interesting couple of weeks but we are back with more features than ever on a new web hosting platform.
Over on the previous host, What Revit Wants had received over 6.7 million page views! I’m really motivated to continue sharing with such a huge audience. I look forward to engaging with you on social media and via your comments too.
A little bit of housekeeping…
The main URL for What Revit Wants is now https://wrw.is/ If you have your own blog or site and you have linked to What Revit Wants, please update those links to the new site. Thank you so much!
While the Feedburner feed is currently still alive, if you do use RSS I recommend that you update your subscription to the official feed at https://wrw.is/feed/
Over the years I have used many workarounds to get things done in Revit, and usually I post about how to do it, and sometimes I offer a family or RVT download too. However, some of these resources are now deeply buried in the blog history (hard to believe I’ve been doing this since 2008!)
With that in mind, I have created this post to share some of the more useful and interesting downloads with you… again 🙂 I’ll try to keep this page updated with the current set of What Revit Wants freebies and downloads.
I hope you enjoy the huge range of samples, workarounds, hacks and scripts linked below. Typically the title of the download is the link to the family, and the next line is the source post: Download Link Source Link
Feel free to comment to let me know if these are useful, or if they are not 🙂 In some cases, Revit has ‘caught up’ and the older workarounds are no longer necessary.
Also, for resources I create and share I will now use the tag WRWdownloads for easy discoverability.
