September 27 // Ideate Sticky
Display non-BIM Data in Revit with Ideate Sticky — REGISTER
Revit is an outstanding tool for managing BIM data. But what about the critical non-BIM data, such as code checklists, design data, consultant’s data, project dashboard data, and general notes? Revit users have developed some creative workarounds, but each comes with challenges. Take this online class to see how Ideate Sticky solves the problem by enabling you to “stick” or link Excel files containing non-BIM data onto your Revit files. We will walk you through real-life examples, demonstrating how edits entered once in Excel are reflected in Sticky Schedules across multiple Revit projects. You will learn how Ideate Sticky can help you ensure that your entire team is always accessing the most current data. We welcome questions, so come with challenges you’d like us to address.

We will walk you through the steps to inspect and clean up 10 key areas: Element Count; Model/Detail Lines/Keynotes and Revisions; Text and Dimensions; Families; Views; Grids, Levels, and Reference Planes; Groups; Worksets; and Imports.
