The Numbering tool is incredibly powerful as it can be applied to any Revit® category or family detected in the active project, allowing the created numbering to be further used for tagging everything from rooms to doors and windows to MEP services to grids and everything in between. The numbering tool breaks the traditional boundaries, enabling combinations of active type parameters, prefixes and suffixes as well as grouping to be applied together with user interactive selection sequences or predetermined context sensitive algorithm-paths.

The Impact Views Management tool enables complex views to be created which display both the active elements together with any hidden ‘impact-elements’ or load-bearing elements which may, for example, be above and/or below a selected slab. More unlike traditional workarounds which create static views that do not update, views created with the Impact Views Manager remain connected to the model and update to reflect any changes.

Additional, notable MEP tools include Pipe Opening which detects all clashes between MEP services and Structural elements and allows openings to be applied in all instances on the fly or globally, based on user preferences. The tool monitors all clashes and manages the relationship throughout the project. Other MEP tools include a variety of pipe tags for naming and thickness. Enhancements have also been made to a number of existing tools such as the Family Manager, with the option to add network folders and many more.
