eTransmit for Revit 2012

By Anna Liza Montenegro | BIM

In case you missed it, an eTransmit feature was released for all Revit 2012 products by Autodesk Labs back on June 28, 2011.

If you’re a long-time AutoCAD user, you already know that this old Pack-N-Go Bonus Tool “zips” up all of the files associated with a drawing, including Xrefs, Images, Fonts, etc. and places them in a single, easy-to-transfer, ZIP file.  Most “in-the-know” AutoCAD users love this utility and use it regularly.  Are you one of ’em?  If not, you should be!

Well, now Revit 2012 users have the same option…woohoo!  Among other things, this utility will be useful for sending deliverables to clients, consultants, and project partners, but it can also be used for internal archives, model cleanup, and sharing models between disciplines.  You can read more about it and download the tool on the Autodesk Labs website.  Be sure to read the known issues document beforehand.

By the way, for best results, install the Revit 2012 Web Update 1 first.  See my previous post on the Latest Autodesk 2012 Service Packs for more on that!
