Getting Started

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

  • Line 29: $(ProgramW6432)\Autodesk\Revit 2018\Revit.exe
  • Line 39: $(ProgramW6432)\Autodesk\Revit 2018\Revit.exe
  • Line 48: $(ProgramW6432)\Autodesk\Revit 2018\RevitAPI.dll
  • Line 52: $(ProgramW6432)\Autodesk\Revit 2018\RevitAPIUI.dll
  • Line 129 to 134: ...

You will also need to install the last version of the Revit 2018 IFC plugin, available here

Open the solution in Visual Studio 2017, buid it to retrieve the packages from Nuget, and hit "Start" to run Revit in debug mode.


There is two ways to install this plugin:

The easy way

Download the installer on the Autodesk App Exchange

The (not so) easy way

You install bimsync® just like any other Revit add-in, by copying the add-in manifest ("bimsync.addin"), the assembly DLL ("bimsync.dll"), its dependancy (here, "RestSharp.dll") and the associated help files ("bimsyncHelp.html" and the "bimsyncHelp_Files" folder) to the Revit Add-Ins folder (%APPDATA%\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2018).

If you specify the full DLL pathname in the add-in manifest, it can also be located elsewhere. However, this DLL, its dependanties and help files must be locted in the same folder.

Futhermore, the Visual Studio solution contain all the necessary post-build scripts to copy these files into appropriates folders.
