Common Settings

  • Location for export of CNC files – lets you choose where the export files are supposed to be placed:

    • Project file location – the exporter will create a separate folder at the same location where the current Revit project is saved

    • Custom location – lets you choose the common location for all exported files

  • Project Information Parameters – lets you choose what kind of Revit parameters will be used for exported file metadata:

    • Project Name – lets you choose a parameter for collecting project name

    • Object Number – lets you choose a parameter for collecting project number

  • Elements Identification and Mark – this section lets you choose a configuration for marking elements, edit the configuration and create export filters:

    • Automatically skip not marked Elements – lets you exclude specific elements from being exported:

      • Ticked – excludes elements that have information missing in parameters defined in the configuration.

      • Unticked (default) – not active; everything is exported.

    • Automatically skip filtered out Elements – lets you exclude specific elements from being exported:

    • Marking Orientation by - allows you to choose what element should be used as a reference for placing mark:

      • Host (default) - orients the marks in relation to the Revit host element (wall, floor, roof, truss)

      • Element - orients the marks in relation to structural framing elements.

  • Assembly Station Mode – allows you to merge a few frame assemblies into one file and controls the whole file structure:

    • Export Composite Layers – once active, it changes files hierarchical order to include Composite Layers. This will generate a separate layer for each of your Revit structure layers from the wall/floor/roof element you are trying to export. Framing elements that are part of the specific layer will be assigned to the respective layer in the export file.

    • Export as one file – once active, allows you to combine a few framing assemblies into one file to assemble them on the table simultaneously. Frames will appear side by side in a line, and will be touching one another except "Clear Spacing" offset is more than 0.

    • Unit Rounding – here, you can enter how many decimal points you want values to have in the export file.

    • Clear Spacing – here, you can enter the distance between the different assemblies if the "Export as one file" option is used.
