If you’re keen to become more productive with Revit but don’t feel you have the computer programming skills, you’ll be glad to know the Autodesk Developer Network have created a guide called ‘My First Revit Plug-in‘ to help you do just that. A plug-in can automate and extend the capabilities of Revit, making you more productive while picking up some programming skills along the way.
‘My First Plug-in’ is a self-paced tutorial guide for a smooth introduction into the programming world, designed for users who know Autodesk products but are completely new to programming and thinking about taking the plunge. The guide has been created based on Revit Architecture but also applies to Revit Stucture and Revit MEP (providing you are using the 2011 version or higher).
Supported Products: Autodesk Revit 2011 family or higher.
Programming Language: C#.
Application Programming Interface (API): Revit .NET API.
The guide has been split into seven easy tutorials which can all be viewed at Autodesk’s website.
Autodesk are also encouraging users to share their creations with each other on their forums.
