RevitLookup for Revit 2016

With Revit 2016 officially out, I am working on updating my addins for 2016. One of the most invaluable addins has already been updated. Per Jeremy Tammik on his website, http://thebuildingcoder.typepad.com/blog/2015/04/revit-2016-api-news-and-devdays-online-recording.html, RevitLookup has been updated for Revit 2016.

You can get the source code here: https://github.com/jeremytammik/RevitLookup/releases/tag/2016.0.0.6 and build it yourself.

Or you can download a zip with a version that I have already built here: https://app.box.com/s/5hxbjrtgk77a80uwvycvfxinjvo9tzvt

Just extract the contents of the zip file into your Revit 2016 addins folder ( C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2016\ )


  1. thanks sir
    sorry , i forget write link to you in my blogger , i fixed this

  2. This may not be directly in correlation with your post but I have looked over your blog and am very interested to see if I can get your help on an item. I am not very familiar with macro's but understand they are very powerful. We have been developing add-ins at my company for years. I have been behind what the add-in needs to do but not how to write the script. My next macro/add-in we are in need of is a way to upgrade an entire file directory (and sub-folders) to 2016 so we can get ready to deploy the new software to employee's computers. Do you know if this is possible?

  3. Nice work Troy. It was great to see this Add in at the LARUG last night. Thanks for sharing!

  4. With the launch of revit 2016 there are many advanced features incorporated in it. Would like to know the limitation of 2016 version before updating the same. Revit conversion services are the finest services of all.

  5. hamgram, yes its definitely possible. There is one published by Boost Your BIM found on the App Exchange https://apps.exchange.autodesk.com/RVT/en/Detail/Index?id=appstore.exchange.autodesk.com%3abulkfileupgrader_windows32and64%3aen
