Users of Dulux BIM SolutionsColour Atlas plug-in for Autodesk Revit will know that the tool has became massively popular with good reason, yet for those who are not aware of what it is or how to use it, Dulux have posted a video explaining the new features of the latest version.

Posted to the Dulux Australia official YouTube account, the helpful tutorial explains the basics behind the additional features in the new edition, which is compatible with Autodesk Revit 2015.

New features include additional tabs for Powdercoats and Metallic/Safety colours, both of which can be categorised via their product ranges or by colours. The video shows how to implement these colouring options into a Revit Model and the updated settings window for all colour tabs which allows for colours to renamed and automatic update function.

Other new features include the ability to painting split faces and create colour schedules.

Created in association with IGS, the plug-in is currently only available in Australia. As referenced in a comment below IGS’ Luke Johnston has stated that GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD content for Dulux is also in development, and should other Dulux national branches want to have their own version, IGS would be happy to talk!
