The Roombook Areabook Extension for Autodesk® Revit® 2014*, Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2014, Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2014, Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2014, and Autodesk® Revit LT™ 2014 software helps you with the quantification of your projects: 

Roombook calculates the room-related surface area of walls, floors and ceiling elements as well as room circumferences and furnishing elements within a project for a complete material calculation of the interior finish. 

Areabook calculates living areas, unfinished areas, net floor areas as well as gross and construction floor areas of rooms and room groups for a comprehensive floor area calculation. 

In addition to the automated detection of room areas and surfaces, this extension helps users configure these elements manually to local requirements and country-specific standards, as well as achieve more accurate model take-offs. Quantified results can be exported to Microsoft® Excel® software, comma-separated CSV text files, and Autodesk® Quantity Takeoff (QTO) software.

eTransmit for Autodesk Revit 2014

eTransmit for Revit 2014 is a subscription benefit.  Log onto your subscription site now to access the feature!!

With eTransmit for Autodesk® Revit® 2014 software products, you can copy a Revit model and dependent files to a single folder for Internet transmission. You can transmit any model that has been upgraded to Revit Release 2012 or later and saved.

With eTransmit for Autodesk Revit, you can:
    • Copy and detach a Revit model and associated files to a single folder for internet transmission. This removes the typical error messages when you copy central files using the operating system.
    • Locate dependent files automatically and include them in the transmittal folder, helping to reduce the possibility of error. All dependent files are automatically converted to use relative paths so the dependent files can be located by the model.
    • Choose to include related dependent files such as linked Revit models, CAD files, DWF™ markups, decal images, and external keynote files. You can transmit any Revit (.rvt) model that has been upgraded to be compatible with a Revit 2012 software product or later.  
    • Choose to Upgrade the Revit (.rvt) model and linked models to the current release.
    • Choose to remove unused families, materials, and other objects from the Revit projects to reduce file size.
    • Transmit models that are using file-based worksharing or server-based worksharing. eTransmit for Revit can also work with non-workshared Revit models.
