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.
Note: you will need to login to this site FIRST to see and download the files.
If you are struggling to find updates, hotfixes, patches and other resources for older Autodesk software, try this page:
There is a lot in here:
This is one of the most prolific folders, containing files from about 1998 to 2005:
And what is IFC doing in here?
Pretty cool that Autodesk were supporting IFC 1.5 in 1998:

Steve Stafford is a pillar of the Revit community. There are some great free downloads at his site, AEC Advantage.
Check out the downloads page:
There is a great document on Revit Roles in a practice, and a cool example of how to handle non-perpendicular Grid Display. You can also find a Door Family tutorial handout from AU.
Just came across this search engine for PDF, DOC and PPT files. It is called http://www.osun.org/
For example, lets say you wanted to see what PDF files are available that include the words ‘ revit families’. Have a look at the results by following the link below:
This could be a very useful site for quickly searching for quality data. If Google can’t find what you are after, give this site a go.
…and I’m excited!
I have a feeling that this release is going to be VERY helpful.
Just login to Subscription Centre to download it.
No doubt there are a few utilities that you just can’t do without. Here are a few of my absolute favourites:
- CutePDF Writer – just brilliant, and its free!
- 7-Zip – best archive utility (in my books), and again, its free!
- IrfanView – very fast and very functional image viewing and editing
- FolderGuide – if you are still on 32 bit Windows, this is the best way to navigate folders (in my opinion)
- CCleaner – great way to clean up after yourself
- FileZilla FTP Client – open source FTP client
- FREE PDF Tools – these are simply awesome, and yet again, totally free!
That was just a shortlist. I may post some more in future. In the meantime, what are your favourite utilities? Feel free to comment and share them with all of us…
