The latest improvements to Ideate BIMLink include features that are added to our 2016, 2017, and 2018 versions. See below for a summary of some of the latest improvements or check out our YouTube What's New playlist.
We've added a Search box to the New Link Category dialog to make it even easier to get started. Now you can just type in the name of the category you need and quickly filter the list as shown.
We have added new properties and data categories to support enhanced workflows related to Quality Control.
We have added new properties and data categories to support enhanced workflows related to Project Standards.
Here's a list of the elements that you've been able to create in Revit as new elements via Ideate BIMLink based on your Excel spreadsheet:
Now you can also use Ideate BIMLink to also create new Revision sequences. This means you can extract a complete list of Revision sequence data from one file, and import it into another to enforce project standards across all disciplines. This improvement also includes the highly requested ability to edit Revision sequence data such as the description and date fields.
At your request, Ideate BIMLink now includes access to Group data. Use the Model_Group.link for an overview on the Groups used in the project or use QC-MC-Groups.link to list all of the elements that belong to groups, for in-depth auditing. Groups now have the ability, in Revit 2018, to include custom project and shared parameters, and Ideate BIMLink fully supports this new functionality.
Additionally, Ideate BIMLink now supports the abilty to pull Room or Space data through a linked file for elements that are not within that file. This means you can know which room the light fixture is in, even if the room exists in one file and the fixture exists in another.
Lastly, like Groups, Linked Revit files now also have the ability, in Revit 2018, to include custom project and shared parameters, and Ideate BIMLink fully supports this new functionality.
