At the beginning of the year, I posted a list of 10 Revit Apps you should be using in 2015. Now that we’re midway through the year, I thought I’d revisit this topic with a list of 10 more apps you should be using (or thinking about using) this year. There are lot of great apps out there that will give your productivity a serious boost. Here’s my list to help you work smarter in 2015.

10. ScheduleSync Pro

BONUS – DWG to RVT Pro
OK, this is my own app but it’s a good one. It converts linked or imported DWG files to Revit lines (including detail and model lines as well as area, room and space boundary lines). You can specify a different Revit line style for each DWG layer or even skip layers you don’t want in your model file.
I recently changed the pricing to Pay As You Want. The suggested price is $29.00 (USD) but you can enter any amount you’d like, even nothing. Click here to read more and download DWG to RVT Pro.
