Be.Smart Branding

As part of rebranding to Be.Smart, we're updating our T4R icons. We're caught between introducing entirely new icons or revamping the old ones with a fresh color scheme.

In-App Feedback

Thanks to the newly integrated in-app feedback you can now directly contribute to the product's development with your insights and suggestions, all effortlessly from within the app itself.

RoomToFloor v2.0

Added:

  • Based on feedback added bulk settings possibilities:

  • Bulk check/uncheck

  • Bulk offset

  • Bulk floortype

  • Bulk include inserts

  • Added "Result" column to notify about the operation result

  • Extended Tooltip

Performance optimization:

  • Enhanced performance through refined filtering of wall inserts for each floor level. By creating floors with included inserts solely for the active building story view, we eliminate the need for Revit to render graphics, significantly reducing the largest factor in performance slowdown.

  • If the creation of floors with wall inserts is unsuccessful, the system will automatically attempt to create them without inserts. Users will be informed of this adjustment and the outcome.

Import/Export Schedules v2.0

Refactored

Fixed:

Output formatting improved based on source parameters if available.

Route Length v2.0

New Features and Enhancements:

  • Enhanced Selection Analysis: When multiple systems are selected, the software now provides a comprehensive breakdown, including:

    • Total length of all selected elements.

    • Total length categorised by different systems.

    • Separate lengths for straight elements and fittings within each system.

  • Inclusive Calculations:

    • Conduits: Their lengths are now factored into the overall calculations.

    • Cable Trays: These are also included in the length calculations.

  • Improved Element Selection:

    • "Select" Button: This new feature enables users to additionally select or deselect elements, enhancing user control.

    • "Copy" Button: Users can now easily copy content, streamlining data management.

  • Multilingual Support: The application now supports multiple languages, including Czech (CZ), English (EN), French (FR), Polish (PL), Finnish (FI), and Spanish (ES).

Added:

  • Fittings are included in the calculation

  • When selecting multiple systems it gives you: the total length of selected, the total length of different systems and the length of straight elements and fittings within different systems.

Fixes:

  • Fittings: Now accurately included in the length calculations.

  • Ducts/Pipes with Undefined MEP Systems: These elements are also incorporated into the total calculation, ensuring a more comprehensive analysis.

Calculation Logic Explained:

  • Element Length Calculation: The length of an element is determined by measuring the distance between its two connectors.

  • Handling Multiple Connectors: In scenarios where an element has multiple connectors, the calculation is based on the connectors that are furthest apart, ensuring the most accurate measurement of the element's length.

Split Duct v2.0

New Features and Enhancements:

  • Data Retention: The application now retains previous input values for ease of use.

  • Unit Configuration: Users can set measurement units (imperial/metric) based on project requirements.

  • Enhanced Splitting Methods: Three new splitting methods have been introduced to cater to diverse needs.

  • Redesigned User Interface: Featuring a new tab for input parameters, reminiscent of the original design, and an additional tab dedicated to selecting the splitting method.

  • Customisable Settings for Pipes/Ducts/Conduit: Users can now assign different values for various types of conduits, including Pipes, Ducts, and Conduit.

  • Shape-Based Customisation: The application supports different values for objects based on their shape (round, rectangle, oval).

  • Input Validation: Implemented restrictions to prevent non-valid inputs, enhancing the tool's reliability.

  • Multilingual Support: Available in English, Czech, French, Spanish, and Polish to cater to a wider audience.

  • Non-Valid Element Handling: The tool continues processing even with non-valid elements, providing a list of their IDs at the end. Users have the option to continue or terminate the command as needed.

  • Flexible Element Selection: The application can now be initiated without pre-selected elements. A new "Select" button has been added, enabling users to select or deselect elements during operation. This feature includes a pre-filter for ducts, pipes, and conduits during additional selections.

  • Multilingual Support: Available in English, Czech, French, Spanish, and Polish to cater to a wider audience.

Fixes:

  • The first piece of the duct or pipe is not the exact size - Fixed

  • If we have a selected duct/pipe which hasn’t set up the union the split function won’t make the splittings everywhere - Fixed.

  • It would be good if the previous value has been saved - Fixed

  • When we select the β€žsplit” command after that we could select duct or pipe. - Fixed

  • It would be good if the splitting numbers would be project units not milimeter. - Fixed

Other Fixed issues

  • Room Finishes – not detected membrane

  • JoinGeometry – added Toposolid, Casework

  • BIMSign – ProfileType family sign problem

  • ParameterManager

    • Added GUID column

    • Added vary between groups option

Furthermore, you'll notice a completely renewed user interface with a fresh Ribbon design, built to offer a seamless and user-friendly experience, which will make navigation simpler and enhance your productivity.

The awaited Dark Mode is also included in this update, along with a series of other feature enhancements. Although these additions are the last on our list, they are equally important in ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable user experience for you.

Revit 2024 compatibility

Holixa T4R is now compatible with Revit 2024.

Redesigned UI Ribbon

Experience a fresh and intuitive interface with our redesigned Ribbon, providing easy access to T4R's tools, improving navigation, and enhancing your workflow.

This significant change in our UX/UI is designed to take your user experience to the next level and boost the recognition of our brand.

Dark Mode support

Holixa T4R now supports Dark Mode for a visually optimized experience.

New Features

This Feature provides an enriched interface for seamless level creation in your projects.

This feature automatically writes the floor parameter for selected elements. This enables more efficient reporting, especially for elements that Revit does not inherently assign to any floor, such as HVAC insulation for pipes.

This feature allows users to effortlessly generate a 3D cropped view of a specific section of their drawing that the user selects in the floor plan.

This feature enables bulk reset of element visibility in the entire view, where the display override has been modified for the element in the view. It does not apply to view overrides based on categories.

This feature allows you to display hidden elements in the entire view with a single click (using the Hide Elements function). It does not apply to hidden categories.

Enables quick zooming to selected elements, providing a focused view.

New MEP Features

This feature enables the connection of two elements into a single MEP system.

This feature allows bulk modification of the reference floor for selected elements. It is particularly useful after moving elements between floors when the reference floor does not update automatically. It also enables users to set the reference floor for vertical pipes spanning multiple floors, making reporting easier and more streamlined.

Main Enhancements

This popular feature has undergone significant improvements enhancing functionality and user experience. This provides greater efficiency when copying column data across different elements

Other Enhancements and fixes

  • Operating Status visibility for Link Checker, Doors and Time Tracker

  • Dimension Text Mover - fix

  • Language localizations fixes
