Revit Parameters Import Sample with the latest APS Parameters API

Default blog image

We are thrilled to unveil our latest Revit desktop Addin sample designed to showcase the collaboration between APS Parameters API and Revit Desktop. The sample is now officially available at https://github.com/autodesk-platform-services/revit-parameters-export-addin.

In this blog post, we will delve into the general overview of the Addin, guiding you through the process of utilizing the Parameters API to import shared parameter into Revit.

Using the Parameters API, you can retrieve your hubs, the parameter groups in the hubs and the parameter collections. These parameter collections contain your parameters that will be generated either through user inputs via the ACC dashboard or programmatically via the APS Parameters API. This Addin serves as a bridge between APS Parameters API and Revit Desktop, enabling users to list parameters from Autodesk Construction Cloud and seamlessly integrate them into their Revit projects.

To make use of this Addin, head over to our GitHub repository at https://github.com/autodesk-platform-services/revit-parameters-export-addin, you will find the Addin hosted and readily available for download and integration/modification.

Key Points to Note:

  • Authentication Method: The Addin utilizes 3-legged authentication, ensuring a secure and reliable connection between your ACC and Revit instances.
  • ACC Account Requirement: Before using the Addin, ensure that you have an Autodesk Construction Cloud account. You will need the ClientId and ClientSecret for authentication purposes.
  • Revit License: To use the Revit Parameters Addin, a valid Revit license is required. Make sure your license is up to date to leverage the full potential of this integration.
