As of 7/21/2023, this tool is now included with Bento, EvolveLAB's collection of simple free Revit addins that help architects, engineers, and contractors in the day to day tasks while working in Revit.
The problem: Placing ceilings one by one can be a very time-consuming task, even with the Revit "Automatic" Ceiling function.
You can also place ceilings with "sketch mode". This gives some really nice flexibility of your ceiling shape and location.
However, neither of these solutions allow you to mass populate a building with ceilings based on a set of rules or requirements. Solution: With that, EvolveLAB is announcing the EvolveLAB "Ceiling Generator". This tool allows you to auto-place ceilings in your project related to their respective room! In this case, all bedrooms can get a ceiling type. All bathrooms can get a ceiling type, and so on. Further, you have control over the ceiling height and type when generating the ceilings.
Please note, because of Revit API limitations, the ceiling generator is only available for Revit 2022 or later. To try it for yourself, simply install Bento, EvolveLAB's collection of simple free Revit addins that help architects, engineers, and contractors in the day to day tasks while working in Revit. As of 7/21/2023 the Ceiling Generator is no longer just a stand-along tool, and is included as a part of EvolveLAB's free Revit addin Bento.
