This version includes the top user-requested feature: Import and Export formulas. So you can now transfer your carefully-curated formulas from one Revit project to another!

You simply click the new ‘Export’ button in PropertyWizard’s main window, and choose where to save the formula file. Then click the ‘Import’ button to select the formula file and import the formulas when you’re in the other Revit model.

I’ve also added a new function: round(a, b), which rounds the value ‘a’ to ‘b’ decimal places. So this formula calculates the length of walls in metres, rounded to the nearest millimetre:

Bugfixes include improving the accuracy of midpoint rounding in the round(a) and round(a, b) functions. Previously, midpoint values like 1234.5 would occasionally be rounded to 1234 rather than 1235. Now, you should always get 1235.

I’ve also changed the trig functions to use radians not degrees so that they interface properly with the Revit API. Sin, cos and tan now expect their input values to be in radians. The inverse functions asin, acos and atan now return radians.
