A few more.....

Some of these are VERY useful

Thanks to BIM Managers blog

Here’s a few extensions I’ve come across recently

http://toolbox4revit.com/int/index.php? ... &Itemid=26
FilterTool – This is how Revit’s filter tool should work.
From their site: You're able to filter not only the categories of your selection but also the types. Your selection is level-based. Additionally, you can save pre-defined Filters, so whenever you need a recurring selection, just open a saved Filter selection in our FilterTool.

http://www.ideateexplorer.com/index.php
ideate explorer – Same as above except even more powerful. I need this and I need it now. Considering they are about the same price if you get the office version of filtertool, I think this is the right choice.

http://www.dotsoft.com/revit/xl2cad.htm
Revit Excel Import – Converts excel files to dxf so you can import them into Revit as a link. It’s not very ‘BIM’ that’s for sure, but there are times I could’ve have used this.

http://www.strucsoftsolutions.com/mwf.asp
Metal Wood Framer – I know of many people that have been looking for this, it automatically creates wood or metal stud framing from your Revit walls

http://www.avatech.com/commerce/BIMreview-10-P1.aspx
BIMreview – THE way to maintain standards in Revit.
I’ve only tried BIMreview so far because we are currently on a purchasing freeze. Stinkin economy is preventing me from having any fun.

IMAGINiT Technologies have a few tools designed to complement Revit:

IMAGINiT Utilities for Revit, http://imaginit.com/software-solutions/ ... -for-revit
This is free to IMAGINiT subscription clients.

IMAGINiT Room Renumber, http://imaginit.com/software-solutions/ ... m-renumber
You can download this free application from the Autodesk Exchange website.

Scan to BIM, http://imaginit.com/scantobim
Import and work with point clouds directly inside Revit. IMAGINiT’s Scan to BIM was the first software to provide the ability to view and interact with point clouds inside of Revit. You can now view point clouds directly inside Revit. Scan to BIM™ takes this one step further, enabling you to not only visualize point clouds in Revit, but also to interact with them, assisting with automated recognition and placement of architectural elements such as walls and columns, as well as MEP elements such as pipes, ducts, conduits and more. View a Demo or try it yourself for free with a 30 day trial.

IMAGINiT Clarity for Autodesk Revit Server, http://imaginit.com/software-solutions/ ... vit-Server
IMAGINiT Clarity Workshare, http://imaginit.com/software-solutions/ ... -Workshare
Built upon the Autodesk® Revit® Server platform, IMAGINiT Clarity enables better collaboration between Revit users (both inside and outside an organization). By using IMAGINiT Clarity you can control your Revit Server setup, automate repetitive tasks, and provide valuable data to non-Revit users – all with simple setup, easy administration and secure connectivity.

For more information contact IMAGINiT Technologies on 1300 66 7263

Although there is some not so positive feedback regarding the UI, Mario Guttman's utilities are one of the most powerful tools available.
There are some posts with good comments at the RFO about these utilities (Martijn loves it), and at least one video from Lucien Benoit about geometry interaction.
Mario is one of the pioneers linking revit to databases from his time at HOK, and one his presentations, some years ago now, was a great inspiration for me. I think it was first time the "putting the I in BIM" was used.

Schedule Sync
The application provides two main commands below:
1. Schedule Export: The command provides ability to export schedule data to Excel file; the saved Excel file can be Excel 97-2003 Workbook(*.xls) and Excel Workbook(*.xlsx).
2. Excel Import: The command provides the convenient approach to allow user importing external Excel to Revit and then Revit models will be updated automatically with the associated data.
