Autodesk Construction Solutions and the Revit product teams are excited to announce that the Revit Issues Add-in is now available. When you began using BIM 360 issues to identify potential clashes and assign action requests on Revit models, you asked if there was a way to “make some magic happen” – i.e. view the issue in its place in the Revit model. After testing in the beta environment over the last few months, and after much input from participants, it is now an add-in available to Revit. 

The Revit Issues Add-in locates and displays issues assigned from BIM 360 in shared Revit models, simplifying coordination and problem-solving between the job site and the design studio. Use the add-in to view, resolve, and close-out BIM 360 issues through direct interaction with the Revit model. No additional screens, no searching for the flagged issue in the Revit model, no cross referencing issues reports with model views — just better communication and collaboration in supporting projects from design through construction.

How to install and use Revit Issues Add-in 

You can find the Revit Issues Add-in installer in Autodesk Accounts (for team-wide installation) and the Autodesk Desktop App (for individual installation). 

Once installed, you can launch Revit and sign into your Autodesk account to open a BIM 360 project. Issues can be viewed and managed within the Issues tab, where you can load new issues, filter by attribute, and make edits to open items.
