Revit: 2010 API Developer Guide

I stumbled across this document today whilst setting up my SDK Samples menus in Revit.

It’s located in the Revit 2010 SDK folder (there’s an extractable on the Revit disc to get this folder) and spotted the ‘Revit 2010 API Developer Guide’.

It’s a 315 page PDF with a whole heap of tutorials, code samples and tips for using the Revit API. It’s pretty much the user manual and seems to be exactly where a new Revit API user should start. This document is exactly what I dreamed of when I started developing with the Revit API a couple of years ago!

The section headings include:

  • Getting Started
  • Add-in Integration
  • Application and Document
  • Elements Essentials
  • Parameters
  • Collections
  • Editing Elements
  • Walls, Floors, Roofs and Openings
  • Family Instances
  • Family Creation
  • Datum and Information Elements
  • Annotation Elements
  • Sketching
  • Views
  • Material
  • Geometry
  • Place and Locations
  • Shared Parameters
  • Transactions
  • Events
  • Revit Architecture
  • Revit Structure
  • Revit MEP

If there isn’t anything there that interests you, you obviously aren’t interested in the Revit API. Props to Autodesk for putting this together!
