Roundup – For June 5-11, 2017, New and Updated Revit and Navisworks Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The week of June 5, 2017 was a moderately busy one for Revit and Navisworks add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Three new add-ins were published and ten were updated.

For new add-ins, AEC Daily Education for Autodesk Revit is a free connection for continuing education and more. Avigilon 3D View Generator allows one to automatically create perspective views in Revit from Avigilon security camera families. 3DRepo4Navis enables the uploading of models from Navisworks to the 3drepo.io cloud platform.

Of the updated add-ins, IdeateApps for Revit received a relatively significant refresh, having four new tools added for the 2018 release.

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.
