Revit Schedule Excel Hacking with Paul Aubin

On this episode of BIM After Dark Live I will be joined by the “bim-famous” Paul Aubin to talk about Revit Schedule Excel Hacking. What does that mean? Well, it means Paul has been messing around with some of the limitations of Revit Schedules and wants to share some of his findings with you all!

Paul and I will run through a recent hack he discovered while overcoming a Revit schedule limitation while also more generally talking about some other ways this process (and some simple Excel skills) can open the door for you to hack Revit schedules yourself!

Sit back, relax, and join the conversation…
