Roundup – For July 24-30, 2017, New and Updated Revit and Navisworks Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The week of July 24, 2017 was a moderately busy one for Revit and Navisworks add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Two new add-ins were published for Revit, and four for Navisworks. Six Revit add-ins were also updated.

For Revit, new add-ins included OkCommand for finding commands in the Ribbon using keywords, and Visualive3D for exporting 3D models to many AR/VR platforms.

Updated Revit add-ins included BIMcollab BCF Manager, which received a relatively significant update.

For Navisworks, new add-ins included BIMcollab BCF Manager for efficient issue management collaboration, as well as the self-descriptive 3DPDF Exporter, OBJ Exporter, and WebGL Exporter. All four of these add-ins were previously available for Revit.

Apparent False Updates

Most weeks there are a number of add-ins listed on the App Store as having been updated when they appear not to have been. We call these false updates.

We suspect false updates occur because developers have the ability in the App Store database to mark an 'update' without changing the version number. This is advantageous to developers because it moves their add-ins up in the App Store  'Newest' list. Also, authors of multiple add-ins on the App Store may use the practice to group their add-ins together. And some may mistakenly not change the version number for a legitimate update.

We verify false updates by comparing the current version numbers with our last posts about the add-ins. This is work for us, though, hopefully, value for you.

In the hopes that the App Store will someday fix this loophole or developers will cease the practice, we list the developers and their add-ins that, though marked as updated, were not.
