Revit Developer Center

Autodesk Revit® provides a rich and powerful .NET API which can be used to automate repetitive tasks, extend the core functionality of Revit in simulation, conceptual design, construction and building management, and much more. Revit .NET API allows you to program with any .NET compliant language including VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI. The Software Development Toolkit (SDK) provides extensive .NET code samples and documentation to help you get started developing with the Revit API.

  • “My First Plug-in” is a self-paced tutorial guide for a smooth introduction into the programming world. This is a “one-stop shop” learning path for users who know Revit but are absolutely new to programming and are thinking about taking the plunge. In this guide, you will be working with the Revit .NET API and the C# programming language.
