From time to time, I export all of the families in a project and add it to our Library as a ‘snapshot’ of where our families were at during that project. However, Revit still does not export the families into folders by Category (there used to be an add-in that did this).
Happily, a new free tool from Kiwi Codes will take a folder and then sort all of the RFAs into folders by Category for you!
- Download (need to submit email as per image below).
You can also download it from Autodesk Exchange. (direct link)
- Run from Revit
I did a test run of this on about 200 families – it sorted them in a couple of minutes. If you don’t know how to export families from a Project, just go:
- File – Save As
- All families
From their website:
This tool takes all the families located in the specified folder and sub folders and organizes them into Category named folders in the target directory.

EDIT 2 – I have received confirmation from the Director of Kiwi Codes that the tool is “totally Free and not time locked …”
EDIT – While the website clearly states ‘This tool is free’ (see image above), I received the following by email:
