Revit Palettes - The Family Browser from Kiwi Codes Solutions

A friend passed this on to me and I am passing it out to all of you. The folks at Kiwi Codes Solutions have developed a Family Browser that looks and acts like an AutoCAD palette inside of Revit products.

They are actively working on a new version which should be released early this year.  They posted a preview of some of the features that you can watch in this video.


There is a lot of promise in this to make our lives a lot more productive. They are selling the add in on a subscription model. $35 a year for a single license or $250 a year for a single site license. Honestly, it looks like you could easily make that money back in a month.

For more information, check out their website http://kiwicodes.co.nz/FamilyBrowser.aspx .

I looked at this about 5 months ago with some interest. I think before I buy it for our office, I will need to get our revit families library in good order. I'd recommend anyone who's interested in it, to download the trial and give it a good run. You'll probably find, as I have, that your revit libraries need a good clean up!

I've been using this add on for over 6 months now, it's brilliant + yes my libraries have had a great deal of house cleaning done on them since this little beauty was installed. I would say this one app is better than the entire 2011-2012 upgrade.
