This month's plugin comes to us from our own Jeremy Tammik of the Autodesk Developer Technical Services team.
As its name suggests, this plugin allows you to search Revit project elements and their parameter values for a given text string. The plugin has been tested with Revit Architecture 2011 and 2012, but should work for the other 32-bit and 64-bit flavors of Revit.
If you are installing the plugin for Revit 2012, you will want to unblock the zip file before doing so.
As a plugin of the month, the download includes the source code. The source code: gets installed to a "Source" folder beneath the plugin's installed location, has been provided as a Visual Studio 2010 project containing the C# code, but is not required to run the plugin. The source code is provided to inspire would-be developers to see how easy it is to extend the functionality of Revit.
So please share your stories of success or failure using the plugin with us at [email protected]. We'd only be especially thrilled to hear if you have extended the application by modifying the source code.
BIM searching is alive in the lab.
