pyRevit extension

pyRevit is one of the most powerful Add-Ins for Autodesk Revit® that, among other functional tools, brings to the developers the great benefit of customizing a new panel coding entirely in Python 🐍! The Macro4BIM extension, which creates a tab named pyM4B, is a collection of selected homemade tools.

UI names

Just for clearance, here is an image to state clearly the difference between all the UI that populate the Revit ribbon bar:

Intellisense and autocompletion

Very important to know about pyRevit is that almost all of its libraries have been developed by the author Ehsan Iran-Nejad in Python. You can find them all at the following path on your computer %appdata%\Roaming\pyRevit-Master\pyrevitlib .

If you are a developer, you certainly want to have easy access to the libraries while you're coding as was already suggested in this post: VSCode intelliSense for Revit

Talking about pyRevit, though, that post is not enough. I highly recommend you also this short post where we talk about a tool developed by Ehsan Iran-Nejad and Steve Baer at McNeel, simply extraordinary: Create Python stubs 🐱‍👤

The Target

The idea is to create different panels to be useful for more disciplines at the same time.

More functions will come... stay updated!

For now, this is a preview of what we developed:
