Revit Options

Revit Add-On options can be accessed by clicking on "Options" within the dRofus Menu / Ribbon as shown:


There are several settings that can be viewed and in some cases adjusted within the "Options" panel.


1. Add-On information

  1. dRofus version: This displays the current version of dRofus Client / Add-On.
  2. Add-On location: This provides the file path to where the Add-On file is installed.

2. User options: These options are related to the images imported into dRofus.

  1. Image export resolution: Here you can set the resolution for image export. Default is 800 dpi.
  2. Export room using boundingbox: This is the previous method of exporting images where the images do not crop as per the actual room geometry, but are instead proportioned to a square image to fit the geometry.

3. Document options: These options are related to the Revit document itself and are stored inside the document.

  1. Model name: Here you can define the name of the Revit model. For more information on this see Model Name.
  2. Prompt for login: Check box to prompt for a dRofus login when the Revit model is opened.
  3. Automatic login: Check box to automatically log you in to the (last logged in) dRofus database. This will work as long as you have opted to "Remember Password" within your login window. See Log in. In order to facilitate this, 4 x Shared Parameters will be added to the Revit model in order to house the information as per the example below:

4. Project options: These are options stored within the dRofus database and are only accessible by Users with Project Administrator Rights.

  1. Area Unit: Here you can define which area unit is to be used in dRofus.
  2. Force track changes: This option will prevent Users from disabling the track changes feature when logged in to a project. To ensure that this is effectively used, it should be combined with the "Prompt for login" option.
  3. Room ceiling tolerance: Here you can nominate the boundary tolerance for detecting ceilings and the Items within or above the ceiling (the units are measured in feet).
  4. Room floor tolerance: Here you can nominate the boundary tolerance for detecting floors and the Items within or below the floor (the units are measured in feet).
  5. Room boundary tolerance: Here you can nominate the boundary tolerance for detecting walls and the Items within or outside the walls (the units are measured in feet). See also Revit Room Boundary Tolerance.
