Reseller Revit Tools

I think it is very interesting that we are now seeing resellers starting to develop tools for Revit. Does this mean that these particular resellers have a real knowledge of the product? I can't say, but all things being equal, I think I would move my contract to a reseller that offered an additional service like this from one that did not, IF the resellers were equal in all other ways. The first tool is from Avatech. I have not used it yet, but I will report my findings after testing.

The Standards Manager for the Autodesk Revit Platform

BIMreviewTM is the first and only plug-in for the Autodesk® Revit® platform that automatically validates the accuracy and consistency of building information models against project, firm, national or user-defined standards and provides automatic correction.

Eliminate time spent manually reviewing and auditing projects. Reduce time spent prepping and verifying that your project is ready for energy analysis and adheres to the specific standards that your project demands.


  • Check the accuracy, completeness and consistency of your Revit® BIM, as well as models received from others, against project, firm, national, or user-defined standards.
  • Automatically correct with a single click.
  • Get clear instructions on how to correct any errors that can’t be fixed automatically.
  • Comes pre-loaded with GSA Spatial Program validation, National CAD Standard V4, and a collection of pre-established standards.

  • Get easy-to-understand reports presented in clear, concise language.
  • Support best practices for BIM standards in use at your firm. Identify areas for improvement by running individual project reports as you work.
