PropertyWizard – New version 1-3-0

I’m happy to announce that PropertyWizard 1-3-0 has just gone live on the Autodesk App Store. The main focus of the new version is Revit 2021 support.

As well as adding Revit 2021 support, I have been busy refactoring the code to make it more flexible and extensible. That work is now complete, so I will be able to deliver new and requested functionality much more quickly.

You can download a free trial of the new version from the Autodesk App Store: https://apps.autodesk.com/RVT/en/Detail/Index?id=2295752866487515443

You can also download the new Help file, with the new tutorials, here on the website, if you don’t want to download the installer just now.

As always, if you have any comments or questions, please get in touch.

Showing Door Handedness

A quick video showing PropertyWizard updating the handedness of doors in a door schedule.

I’ve created a new ‘Hand’ parameter on the Doors in my project, and added it to a door schedule. As I flip the doors between Right and Left hand, PropertyWizard keeps the parameter up-to-date. So the schedule always shows the correct door hand.

There are different conventions for handedness in different countries: This example shows the DIN 107 standard, but you can customise the PropertyWizard formula to match the standard that applies to your project.

ISO 19650 Sheet Numbers

A quick video showing the PropertyWizard add-in keeping a parameter up-to-date.

The target parameter shows the sheet’s full BS 1192 / ISO 19650 number, and it’s formed by concatenating a set of other parameters, one for each field.

With PropertyWizard, the full number parameter is kept up-to-date as you change the individual field parameters.

Error: ‘Property name not recognised: …’

This must be the most common error I get in PropertyWizard. It means that there isn’t a property called ‘whatever’ on the element. And the key to fixing the problem is to look carefully at the name PropertyWizard thinks it’s looking for (‘whatever’), and ask yourself if that’s really the property name you want?

Often, I find that I’ve mis-spelled the property name – In this case, I’ve typed ‘Cill’ instead of ‘Sill’:
