Check out David Fano’s post at this link.
The Apps and Issue Tracker are both available, at these links:
The Case Apps were (are) great, but they are pretty hard to get now:
One thing you might try is downloading this zip and running the Application Reference file. Turns out something is still alive out there…
Tick the Terms & Conditions box and then tick the boxes for the apps you want to install.
Note: we also had to disable Microsoft Security Essentials (Windows Defender Real-time Protection) to get this application reference to work.
Here is the big list of apps in the Apps Manager:
There was an API addin available a while back, but in recent years I have used:
These are the steps to export the families using the builtin workflow:
Personally, I now usually use Unifi to export and manage Revit content.
Thanks to Matt Wash for prompting me to do an update post on these different methods.
You can get it through the Case addin manager:
Not much documentation available yet, but you can refer to my previous post on how it works:
Convert Navisworks Viewpoints into Revit 3D Views for rapid communication and collaboration
There are a couple of options:
Some of you may say “why not use Switchback?” Well, you don’t always have access to original source files necessary to make this happen. BCF is environment-neutral, and if you are using Revit zero (origin to origin) linking, you should have no problems getting this to work.

Re: Revit to Navisworks to Revit? – Autodesk Community
To get the CASE BCF Exporter for Navisworks Manage 2014 working, you need to make sure you are running Navis 2014 with SP1 but WITHOUT any further hotfixes. The required version number is:
If you have already installed the hotfixes, go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, Uninstall and then reinstall Navisworks Manage 2014 completely (you will need your install media). Then apply SP1. Then install the BCF Exporter using the Case Addin Manager. You can manually copy to the following directory if necessary:
C:UsersUSERNAMEAppDataRoamingAutodesk Navisworks Manage 2014Plugins
Once installed, it is quite easy to:
I think that BCF is going to become a significant part of our BIM workflows moving forward…
Some of you probably already realise that Case Apps have released a suite of Subscription tools (in other words, these are not free).
One in particular caught my eye – Super Tag. It provides a “simple means for tagging specific family types by category using a specified tag on as many views as you choose.”
Here is an easy way:
NOTE: The Case exporter also creates folders for each Category as it exports. Nice.
This was in response to:
I think this was previously called DataSlider. To get it, just close Revit and Vasari and open your Case Add-in Manager (it may want to update itself). Then tick the Migrate Parameter to Parameter box and Install/Update checked.
From their website:
CASE APPS Migrate Parameter
Have you ever needed to schedule an item of data that Revit would not let you? This is a common hurdle for many and now there’s a free tool that you can use to get around this. Common uses include migrating Wall Base Constraint Element Names (Levels) into a schedulable parameter. I’m sure you guys will find lots of uses for this one.
David hinted at this a little while back:
Revit: Can’t schedule wall constraint – part 2
Do you need to clean up your Revit files for transmission?
It is a common task to remove as much from a model as possible prior to sharing it with your consultants for the purpose of linking into their model or sometimes you want to lighten up a model that was sent to you for the same purpose. Delete Sheets, Views. and Revit Links does just what it says. You can select which of the three options you chose using the provided check-boxes.
This tool should only be used on models detached from central as it can be quite destructive.
