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.
Just to be clear, while the steps below *work* at this time, it apparently is an unsupported and inappropriate workaround and there could be risks (financial or otherwise) for BIM 360 Docs customers who invite free users into their projects. You should only invite:
BIM 360 Docs users for which you have paid for and applied an entitlement
BIM 360 Design (C4R) users who have purchased their own entitlement
I expect this workaround may eventually be disabled by Autodesk? You can view if you have exceeded your purchased package of BIM 360 Docs entitlements in the relevant Autodesk Manage pages. For example, it might show 16 of 10 licenses used in red? This is where I think there is potential for Autodesk to back charge users who abuse this current state of affairs.
My advice: check directly with Autodesk about who you can and cannot share your BIM 360 projects with…and proceed accordingly.
You are a paying BIM 360 Docs user and would like to invite a non-paying user to collaborate inside a BIM 360 Docs workspace. Perhaps you just want them to be able to upload and download files, but not Collaborate in Revit…
They need to create a free BIM 360 Docs account, and then get invited to your workspace.
In the thread, he gives instructions on how the door families work, and a link to download the 179mb zip package: First important part. The way they work is you only place the ones that say DOOR at the beginning of their name, obviously. … Download Link for the v4 Doors, a sample file with the doors in them, and the Door Schedule accompanying them, is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lcr5gobpuv…015v4.zip?dl=0
Quote: “nanoCAD is a well-proven DWG-compatible CAD program that includes AutoCAD-like APIs. It’s totally free. No catches. No adware. No crippleware. No incessant nagging. Up until now, the free version has been the only version of nanoCAD offered to the USA. No doubt, the best value in the industry (even better than DraftSight [it lacks APIs in the free version]).”
