Dependent Views from Scope Boxes (New)
This new tool will allow you to create dependent views for any number of floor or ceiling plans and apply a Scope Box to them. This tool was created for setting up projects that have multiple work areas divided up using scope boxes.



























Dependent Views (Updated)
The tool now has an interface that allows you to pick how many dependent views you want to duplicate of the current view.















Delete Views (Updated)
Added a logo to the dialog box.























3D Grid Creator (Updated)
Added a logo to the dialog box.

  1. nice Tool!
    it would be nice, if the 3d grid is locked to the original 2d Grid. And additionally u can create vertical bubbles with an visible switch yes/no. http://abload.de/img/23.03npdw0.png
    To Hide the 3D grid in 2d views u can give a tutorial for a Filter.
    In your Install readme, u should mention to load the revit family in the project. thank you

  2. I downloaded and copied files as noted. When I start Revit, I get "Revit cannot run the external application "BIMConsortium". Contact the provider for assistance. Information they provided to Revit about their identity:."
    Any ideas what I did wrong?

  5. Hi , firstly, thanks for this add-in very useful.
    I want to share with you my feedback after testing this add-in.
    For "Dependent Views", you can duplicate only one time the same view. because if you retry duplicate, there is a crash who say "the view cannot by duplicate" , because the name already exist.

    thanks, HFloris
