Brief comment about the first post:

Just on May 23rd, 2011, Ekko Nap, from the Netherlands, joined our forum, and now, very soon, one his first contributions has been voted by the community as the best post of the month. The post contains instructions about sorting out the largest of a series of variables in the family editor, as shown in this image:







This post contains, in addition, a formula to create a random value, that Ekko created when he was trying to make some families of trees.

Brief comment about the second post:

The second post this month is by our founder, Klaus Munkholm. It contains a tutorial video, explaining how to create a parameter to hold the name of a material, and how to apply this material parameter to an object in a family. Then, in the project, you can change the material of the object by changing the value of the parameter.

For some reason that we don't know yet, this functionality was available until the 2011 versions of Revit, but was kind of "forgotten" in the 2012 versions. Some Autodesk sources have recognized the issue and said that a fix will be included in a future service pack.

Brief comment about the third post:

The third post this month is by Funkys, a user from Sophia, Bulgaria, who joined us on February 20, 2011. This post contains instructions about how to add a custom plug-in to Revit. These Funkys' instructions:

"Copy the (plugin).dll somewhere(X) and then copy the (plugin).addin file here: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\REVIT\Addins\2012 . Then open (plugin).addin in Notepad and change the path((X)\(plugin).dll) to X place of the plugin."

That´s all for now. I will be back with more comments about the best posts in our forum, next month.
