Missing Third Party Updaters in Revit And How to Fix

You might receive a message like this when opening a model in Revit:

Missing Third Party Updaters
Missing Third Party Updaters

 

 

An Updater is a piece of code that basically works to continuously sync a Revit model with some external properties or logic. In this case, the updaters missing included:

  • REXExtension: DReinfFootingSpread
  • REXExtension: DReinfWall
  • REXExtension: DReinfColumn

This was in a Structural design model that I received in Revit 2017 format, and I then upgraded to Revit 2018.

I then tried to install the “Structural Precast Extension” for Revit 2018 – but the error still appeared.

After that, I installed the “Revit Extensions for Autodesk Revit 2018” package.

Which appears on this Extensions Ribbon:

This solved the problem – the “Missing Third Party Updater” message did not appear again when opening this model in Revit 2018.

You can download Revit Extensions from:

  • then Filter or Search for Extensions
  • and Download and Install

On this particular project, I’m acting in my usual Strategic BIM and VDC Implementation capacity, and we are rolling out our typical software stack to a large project team. This includes:

  1. Setting up BIM360 for Revit cloud worksharing, federating models in Revit and creating control model/s
  2. Syncing data to Deep Space – we will immediately use Deep Space for project quantification, compliance, and model compare between Tender dataset and current Revit dataset
  3. Exporting models to Revizto for team review and collaboration
