Ribbon

Weinmann BTL CNC Exporter is very minimal when it comes to Revit ribbon. Everything is packed into one ribbon icon inside the T4R CNC tab:


By expanding the menu, you will be met with several options to choose from:


Configuration Files Location


Opens a selection window where you can choose a location where your configuration options will be saved:

In the Personal Configurations ( 1 ) selection, you can see the current path to a location on your machine where the files are currently saved.

If you wish to change the path, simply click Browse ( 2 ) button on the right.

However, you can have more than one configuration location saved in case you have shared network location in your company or simply want to use different locations for different projects locally.

Shared Company Configurations ( 3 ) can be selected to add a new path to a new location.

If more locations are required, you can press the + ( 4 ) sign in the bottom left corner. This will add more Shared Company Configurations ( 3 ) lines

After you are done selecting, do not forget to press Save & Close ( 5 ) to confirm your changes and to close the window
