About CommandFinder

CommandFinder is a plugin for Autodesk Revit® that acts like a command line prompt, enabling the user to find any built-in command by typing in a search box (much like Autocad’s Command Line tool).

Installing the plugin

To install the plugin, go to the plugin’s page and click on the Try it now! button. This will download an executable file. Run this .exe to install the Camilion Updater on your computer. The Camilion Updater is necessary for license verification on our end and ensures you will always have the latest version of any plugin installed. Open the Updater and click on the Install button for the app you want to install. Your app should appear in a custom tab called Camilion. If it doesn’t, you may have to restart Revit.


How to use CommandFinder

To use the app, simply click on the CommandFinder button, located in the Camilion tab. A search bar will appear in the center of your screen. Start typing and a list of possible commands will appear in a drop-down list.

Now, choose any command from the list or finish typing it in yourself. Finally, click on the icon next to the search bar or simply press enter to execute the command.


If the type of command can’t be executed for the current operation, the execution will simply be canceled and nothing will happen.

Pro tip: assign a keyboard shortcut (such as Spacebar + Shift) to your CommandFinder, so you can access it in a fly. To do this go to View tab > Windows panel > User Interface drop-down > Keyboard shortcuts.

What commands are available

All built-in postable commands can be found with CommandFinder.
