Push your data to Toric
Get your data into Revit
If you haven’t already done so, make sure you’ve downloaded the Revit Plugin. Now let’s get started.
How do I send my data to Toric?
Once the Revit mode is open, navigate to the Toric tab in Revit and click the Toric button. With the new window open, enter your credentials to sign into Toric. If you’re new to Toric you could sign up for an account here.
Now that you’re signed in, you will notice three main sections in the window:
- Select options for Revit data
- Select options of your Toric projects
- Send button
First, you will need to select the elements from Revit that you want to send. Use the ‘Select All’ button to choose all the elements; when all elements are selected you can use the same button to deselect all. Alternatively, select specific elements by clicking the checkboxes individually. Use the scroll bar to see more items in the list and add them to your selection as you move down.
Once you’re happy with your selection, move on to the next section and use the ‘Project’ dropdown to select which Toric project you would like to push your data to. Use the ‘Dataset Source’ dropdown menu on the right to select an existing source or select ‘New Source’ if it’s the first time you’re pushing this data to Toric.
With the Revit elements and Toric project selected, click on the ‘Send data to Toric’ button, and voila, your Revit data is now in Toric. Go straight to your Toric project by clicking the hyperlink ‘Open project in toric.com’.
Set it and forget it!
Lastly, when you save your Revit project, the data you selected in the Toric plugin will get sent automatically to your Toric project.
What type of Revit data could send to Toric?
There are three main types of data you could send to Toric:
- Revit Elements
- Generic Models
The first two are similar as they relate to all the property data related to the Revit objects in a model. The subtle difference between the two is Revit Elements are the standard objects that come with the Revit built-in environment, and Generic models are any custom families in a model.
Finally, if you already have formatted Revit schedules that you would like to augment, use the same steps outlined above to pick the schedules you want and click send.
