Roundup – For June 12-18, 2017, New and Updated Revit and Navisworks Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store (Updated)

The week of June 12, 2017 was a busy one for Revit add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Seven(ish) new add-ins were published, and another fifteen were updated.

For new add-ins, Concrete Zone Quantity is for quick concrete volume quantities by zone, Copy Sheets is for copying sheets with viewports, CopyFamilySharedParam is self-explanatory, the Mosa Converter is for converting signature tile surfaces created with the Mosa Pattern Generator for Revit, the free Quick Commands Search is auto-fill for key-in commands, and the free R AutoSave is an auto-save utility for Revit.

Boomerang, which we've known about for a couple years, also made it's debut on the App Store.

Of the updated add-ins, A400 Licenses MonitorBOM to Excel, and LightUp received relatively significant refreshes.

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.
