Help: Add-Ins for Revit
I reviewed RTV Xporter PRO late last year, but there have been a few updates and new features since then so I thought I’d briefly list them here. For less than $50US per user, you get a lot of automation capability. A 2016 compatible version is now available. Also, a new build for Revit 2015 has been released.
Here are some of the new features in Xporter PRO 2015 build (599):
- improved revision management
- improved stability for unattended scheduled tasks with Revit
- improved PDF connectors
- new Citrix Sharefile connector
- new Edit/Update Revit Sheet Parameter data mode
- new Right-Click shortcut menu options on the main interface
- new Create 3D views split by floor level and export to individual NWC files

A few of the other key features of this addin:
- tasks can be automatically run as a single Batch process or on a repeating Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Hourly Scheduled process.
- Automatic creation of PDFs, DWG, DWF, DWFx, DXF, DGN, NWC and IFC files from Autodesk® Revit® drawing sheets and views.
- Built-in parametric file naming engine automatically saves exported files to match any company’s or project team’s file naming conventions.
- Batch print large format and reduced hardcopies to two separate printers simultaneously.

Drag the relevant files onto the printer window, and you’ll see a dialog box asking if you want to print multiple files. Click ‘Yes’ and they’ll all be opened and printed in their entirety, with the default settings.

If you want to print all the .htm or .html files in a folder, you could use the function in Internet Explorer that allows you to ‘Print All Linked Documents’:
To use this, you need to have a HTML document that links to all of the .htm or .html files in the folder. To automatically generate such a document, you could use this script (you will need to copy the text to a .cmd file, and change the ‘target’ to the folder you want to make a list.htm for):
