RevLink in Revit Architecture
About the RevLink Extension
By downloading and using the RevLink Extension you will be able to create families and synchronize drawings back and forth between Revit and CET Designer using a TCP/IP connection. Manufacturers and dealers can use the Family exporter feature to create components from CET Designer objects that they can distribute on their webpage or directly to the architects. The architect can then use these components in Revit.
RevLink Add-In in Revit Architecture
In order to let CET Designer connect to Revit, the RevLink Add-In needs to be installed in Revit Architecture. This is a server that is listening to port 22088, however, it is possible to change the port when it has been installed. In the RevLink Add-In you cannot do any actions more than closing the server or reverting the changes the server has done to the drawing. When the CET Designer user is connected to RevLink Server, he has the ability to synchronize drawings and create Family files.
