Want to learn how to create your own Revit add-ins? The Revit Add-in Academy teaches you the skills you need to code your own Revit toolbar. Using hands-on projects, you will create a new tool each week that you can put to use right away. Each lesson builds on the previous one so you won’t get overwhelmed by technical jargon or complex concepts. At the end of the course, you will have your own Revit toolbar that you created.
The Revit Add-in Academy starts on June 27th. Over the course of six weeks, we will meet online (using Zoom) on Mondays and Fridays at 4 pm EDT. Classes will last roughly one hour. During Monday’s class, you will learn specific programming skills. Together, we will put these skills to practice in an exercise. You will then test your skills with the weekly challenge. On Friday, we will meet again to review the week’s challenge and I will answer any questions you have. All of the sessions will be recorded and posted to the course website so don’t worry if you can’t make a specific class. You can always catch up by watching the recording.
The weekly lessons are still being developed and may change based on the makeup of the class and their particular interests. Here is a preliminary outline:
- Week 1: Get Started with C# and the Revit API
- Week 2: Import Parameter Data from Excel
- Week 3: Automate Views and Sheets
- Week 4: Easily Create Revit Elements
- Week 5: Insert and Edit Families
- Week 6: Build Your Revit Toolbar
In order to supplement your learning, I will also provide bonus lessons. These lessons will target specific topics that will help you further develop your Revit programming skills. The bonus lessons will include:
- Everything You Need to Know About Visual Studio So That You Can Get Started Faster
- How to Use Github to Better Manage Your Code and Prevent Disaster
- How to “Convert” Dynamo Scripts to Add-ins So You Can Leverage Your Existing Knowledge and Scripts
- How to Create Add-ins for Multiple Revit Versions So You Can Save Time By Coding Once
- How to Deploy Your Add-ins With No Hassle
- How to Calculate the ROI of Custom Revit Tools So You Can Justify the Time You Spend
Learning to code can be a lonely journey. I know it was for me. In order to overcome this, I’m providing a private mentor community so you can get help between classes. The community will be a place where you can post your assignments, receive feedback from me, share your idea and experiences with other students, and get inspired. It’s intended to be a safe and respectful closed group just for Revit Add-in Academy students.
I am also providing direct access to me via Voxer. Voxer is a voice communication app where you can easily record and send voice messages. If you’re stuck on an assignment, simply send me a Vox describing your problem and I’ll get back to you right away. My goal is to remove any barriers to you doing the work and learning how to create your own add-ins.
In addition to the course, bonus lessons, and mentorship community, I will also provide you with my exclusive ArchSmarter Code Library. The Code Library is a collection of C# methods I have written for a variety of Revit operations. You can import the Code Library files directly into Visual Studio and save yourself a LOT of time. Rather than coding the methods yourself, simply reference the methods in your code. It’s that easy!

The entire course consists of the following items:
- Revit Add-in Academy course – $697 value
- Bonus lessons – $497 value
- Private mentor group – $297 value
- Instructor support – $1,500 value
- Code library – $2,500 value
Added up, the total value of the course, the bonuses, the support, and the code library comes to $5,491. However, this is not what you will pay. Your cost to enroll in Revit Add-in Academy is much less, just $997 or 3 payments of $397.
Revit Add-in Academy comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If the course isn’t working for you, if you’re not learning how to create your own add-ins, you get a full refund. If I can’t teach you to create your own add-ins, then it isn’t fair that I keep your money, right?
