Project Hummingbird is a joint project by Tim Meador and Mario Guttman that consists of a set of Grasshopper components and Revit add-ins used to facilitate the creation of Revit native geometry. This process utilizes a simplied pseudo-language in Excel to describe all aspects of the Revit BIM geometry. Translating Rhino primative geometry to Revit has been vastly simplified without the need for linking or reference objects. This allows for the downstream Revit model to be modified and adapted for the project duration. This process is not only limited to grasshopper but could also include read/write methods for Robot structural analysis, Processing, Cinema 4d and many others.

    What you do is awesome! I am
    Looking to present your program here at NBBJ in Seattle. I am very new to grasshopper, but experience in Revit. Do you have any types of tutorial videos on Hummingbird? Can you suggest the best path for learning how to use it?
    Thanks so much.

    I’m trying to use Hummingbird to bring a relaxed Kangaroo mesh into Revit with each quad serving as an adaptable component (similar to what is shown here). Any chance you could send me this file to help?

    Hi! I represent a company that develops value added software for Revit, SketchUp and other 3D modeling packages. We’re looking to cooperate with your blog! Our product is called Revizto. It converts 3D models into navigable 3D environment with a single click, and allows users to collaborate effectively within this environment.
    Could you please reach me via mail at to discuss options?
    Thank you!
