Model Review Add-In for Autodesk Revit 2014

Model Review Overview
Model Review for Revit is an Add-in that allows you to automate the process of reviewing and auditing projects in Revit. It is somewhat like Solibri in that it allows you to create rules/checks to run against the model. For example, you can check the models against pre-determined standards to ensure that model naming conventions, file sizes, etc are being followed. The list of pre-defined checks that can be customized is lengthy so I won't list them all in this post, but some additional examples are:
  • Duplicate Elements
  • Find imported files (.dgn, .dwg. skp)
  • Elements Have Omniclass Number
  • Text Find & Replace (allows to to find and replace text)
  • Find Unenclosed Rooms
  • Views with Hidden Elements  
Figure 1 and 2 show partial examples of the report that is generated when Model Review runs. Figure 1 shows the header of the report, which lists a summary of the check results. Figure 2 shows the specific detail for a specific check.

Using Model Review, you can quickly and easily locate model issues.

In the next post, we will walk thru the process of running pre-defined checks against your model. Later, we will dicuss customizing the pre-defined checks and developing new checks.
