Syncing DP PRO with Revit

How does DP Sync work with my Revit model?

DP Sync allows users to bi-directionally sync product specification data between Designer Pages PRO and Revit. An overview of the plugin can be found below.

Where can I download DP Sync for Revit?

The most current version of DP Sync is version 3.5.1. You can download DP Sync here. Make sure you are logged into Designer Pages PRO to download.

What versions of Revit does DP Sync support?

DP Sync currently works with full versions of Revit 2016-2020. Revit LT does not support any third-party plugins and is therefore not compatible with DP Sync.

How can I use Tasks to bring items from Revit into Designer Pages?

Tasks in Designer Pages and DP Sync for Revit will allow you to bring items from Revit that are not yet in Designer Pages. To do this, you will need to first create the project you would like to sync to in Designer Pages, and make sure that you have at least one product in the project.

Next, go to Tasks in DP Sync in Revit, select the project you would like to sync to, and click "Load Family Tasks". This will search for all Revit families with a typemark, and will pair them with any existing Tasks from your Designer Pages project with a matching Code/Tag. Select the families you would like to sync and click "Update DP Tasks". This will push all selected family information back to Tasks in Designer Pages.

Go to your Designer Pages project, click on the Tasks tab, and associate products to each Task. This will then load them into your Designer Pages project.

This workflow allows designers to start with a generic list of items that need to be specified before actual products have been selected, and once they have been selected, associate them to the corresponding task item in Task Lists. Once an item has been associated to a Task, the item will be added to the project and can be specified directly within the project.

How do I sync Area and Types from my Revit model to Spaces in Designer Pages?

Spaces in Designer Pages PRO allows you to set up Area/Type/Room hierarchies, so you can organize products into Areas and Types, workflows especially useful to hospitality design teams.

DP Sync will allow you to pull area and type information created in Revit and push that back to Spaces in Designer Pages. To accomplish this, custom parameters representing area name, area number, type name, and type number must be established and mapped in the "Edit Rooms" setting in DP Sync. DP Sync will then push that information back to Designer Pages when rooms are updated and synced.

There is the option to also create a custom room parameter checkbox which can then be mapped. This feature will allow the plugin to only count products from rooms checked off as typical and then multiple the total count of those products by the total number of rooms in the project with the same area and type information. This will allow designers to avoid having to lay out Revit families in every room across an entire project, saving time while still getting the correct item counts out of each area, type, and room.

Where can I find my User Token?

The DP Sync user token can be found on the user settings screen. You can get to this by clicking on your initials/profile photo in the top right corner and selecting the "settings" option from the menu. You can access that menu directly here. Make sure you are logged into Designer Pages PRO to get access.

DP Sync is asking me to map a shared parameter file?

DP Sync requires that a shared parameter file be mapped for your project so if you do use the plugin to create parameters across multiple families, they get created and scheduled properly within Revit schedules.

An example of this would be that you want to add "Model Number" to 10 Revit families. Without DP Sync, you would either have to go into each family and create these parameters individually, or you would create a project parameter. DP Sync allows you to create this parameter for all families at once and allows for it to appear correctly in your Revit schedules.

Check out this article from Autodesk that goes into more depth on shared parameter files here.
