Room Finishing

A Revit addin to model skirting boards and floor finishes.

Overview

Room Finishing is a Revit addin to model skirting boards and floor finishes.

Creating architectural details for shop drawings can be particularly long and tedious when it comes to modeling every detail in a room.

The Room Finishing application allows you to automatically create a skirting board or a finish floor all the way around any architectural room.

Just create a type of wall to be used as a baseboard or a type of floor to be used as finish, select a set of rooms or a single room and the application will create the skirting board and the finish with the proper height.

More information about about the inner working of Room Finishing can be found here, here and here.

Overview

Getting Started

Edit RoomFinishes.csproj, and make sure that the following lines a correctly pointing to your Revit installation folder:

  • Line 72: $(ProgramW6432)\Autodesk\Revit 2019\RevitAPI.dll
  • Line 76: $(ProgramW6432)\Autodesk\Revit 2019\RevitAPIUI.dll

Open the solution in Visual Studio 2017, buid it, and click on "Attach to process" to run Revit in debug mode. You can found more detail on how to run and debug a Revit addin in this great blog post.

Installation

There is two ways to install this plugin in Revit:

The easy way

Download the installer on the Autodesk App Exchange

The (not so) easy way

You install Room Finishing just like any other Revit add-in, by copying the add-in manifest ("RoomFinishes.addin") and the assembly DLL ("RoomFinishes.dll") in the Revit Add-Ins folder (%APPDATA%\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2019).

If you specify the full DLL pathname in the add-in manifest, it can also be located elsewhere.
