Revit Structure Extensions Not Showing Up

Hello everyone. 

 

Before I explain my problem, please be gentle. I'm a civil engineer that has played around with Revit like two or three times. I primarily use Civil 3D.

 

With that being said, I heard that you can take Civil 3D surfaces into Revit using the Bridge Extension. I have the Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate and that comes with Revit Structure. So I downloaded and installed the extensions from the subscription website. Nothing showed up in Revit after installing it (there should be an Extension tab on the ribbon, right?). I thought, perhaps I need to update Revit first so I installed the service pack. Still nothing.

 

I've searched the web and the discussion group without any solution.

 

Any ideas, thoughts, ponderances, solutions, answers...

 

And, please, use small words. As I said before, I'm very Revit ignorant.

yes you are correct there should have been an extentions tab created in the ribbon

I restarted the computer, uninstalled, restarted the computer, reinstalled, and still nothing. I shouldn't have to do anything after installing it other than launching Revit, right?

 

Could it have something to do with it being part of the Infrastructure Design Suite?

 

Another thing, when I initially installed it, I hadn't updated to the current update, could that be an issue?

yes you shouldn't have to do anything else

i don't think so Revit Structure is Revit Structure with or without the suite i could be wrong

 

Another thing, when I initially installed it, I hadn't updated to the current update, could that be an issue?

don't think so the extentions doesn't require the latest update to be installed  it wouldn't hurt to install it anyway then try to install the the extensions again

 

i'll keep looking for more solutions

I have the update installed. That's one of the first trouble shooting things I did.

Do you see any files with the .addin extension in the folder:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2013?

 

If not, look for one (or any of) the following files, depending on your flavor of Revit:

Autodesk.RevitExtensions.Revit.addin

Autodesk.RevitArchitectureExtensions.Revit.addin

Autodesk.RevitMEPExtensions.Revit.addin

Autodesk.RevitStructureExtensions.Revit.addin

 

Any Addin files found here will be applied for all users of the computer.

In addition, there are also addin files *per user* in:

C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2013

 

I would suggest moving any addin files to the location for all users.

 

Joe

Here are the .addin files I see in the first location: HERE. Doesn't look as though any of those have to do with the extension. One is for Navis Works (I assume) and the other for Chronicle (a utility from LABS)

 

Additionally, there are no .addin files found in the user directory you specified. (C:\Users\bhailey\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2013).
