Product Overview


Interactive Building Information Visuals

Tracer is a toolkit for visualizing diagrammatic building geometry within the Power BI dashboard environment. The toolkit includes a Autodesk Revit® addin that allows users to export geometry and data for BIM objects including rooms, areas, spaces, and family elements.

The Power BI Tracer visual can be used to create interactive vector graphics within a dashboard report. Users can construct rich, visually compelling dashboards to include plan graphics and object location diagrams that respond to report filters and other Power BI interfaces.

WebGL 2.0 browser is required


Streamlined Revit-to-Power BI Workflow

Tracer exposes a new workflow for creating diagrammatic visuals in Power BI with Revit data.

Tracer eliminates cumbersome, multi-step processes for exporting and visualizing Revit data in Power BI. The Tracer Revit addin automatically creates a data file containing your Revit model data for visualization.

In one click, your Revit objects are ready to be visualized.


Leverage your Revit data

The Tracer Revit exporter harvests your model element data into a novel and open data format. The file contains complete element record and parameter values that can be analyzed and queried to support a variety of analytical workflows outside of Revit.
