"Where would we be without Ideate BIMLink?"

“The Query function within Ideate Explorer is powerful. I do a lot of model auditing, and this tool speeds the process by making it easy to find in-place families.”
“I use Ideate Explorer as a more sophisticated Revit filter, because the native Revit filter is very limited.”
“As a BIM Manager, I get a lot of questions, even from advanced Revit users, about missing or hidden elements. Ideate Explorer removes a lot of time-consuming steps we used to take to locate the elements.”
“WRNS relies on Ideate Explorer’s detailed selection filtering, query tools, and warning manager for many of our model management tasks.”
“Ideate Explorer is a strong and stable tool we use every day."
“Ideate Explorer give us deeper insight into Revit model elements and allows for enhanced selection options.”
“Providing a thorough model health assessment used to take a half to full day; now, we can turn our reports around in less than half the time.”
“Ideate’s quick, thorough, and customized response to my question made it clear that they are the type of company we wanted to do business with, so we placed an order.”
The BIM Product Manager encourages his team to leave Ideate Explorer open, so it’s readily available to use for even rudimentary tasks like selecting hidden objects instead of visually looking for them.
“Ideate Explorer is valuable when I need to change every instance of an element within a project at the same time.”
"Ideate Sticky is a great add-in for Revit. Our engineers love it."
“[My assistant] messaged me, then walked into my office, because he was so excited about Ideate Sticky. He said, ‘What are you waiting for? We’re going to get this, right?’”
“On most of our projects, the senior-level project engineers and architects use Ideate Sticky to work hand in hand with the junior designers, who live and breathe Revit.”
“We see Ideate Sticky as a team productivity solution …We can guarantee consistency and cut the time required to create the notes individually in each project by 75%.”
“We save a lot of time by using Ideate StyleManager to remove unnecessary imported styles from Revit projects.”
“Ideate StyleManager is our go-to tool for model cleanup at project milestones.”
"Ideate StyleManager has been a huge game changer for many people in our company.”
"Ideate Software set the bar high for quality as well as responsiveness.”
“We use Ideate SmartDelete to see what will be deleted along with the level … Everyone on our team loves Ideate Clone … We really like the new function within Ideate SheetManager”
“We use Ideate ReNumber extensively … Ideate SmartDelete is critical to our workflow during documentation ... Ideate X-Ray is great for troubleshooting those tricky visibility issues … Ideate SheetManager is a great alternative to the Revit Project Browser.”
“We get a lot of calls from Revit users who place an object into a view in Revit and then can’t find it anywhere. With Ideate XRay, the solution is fast and simple.”
Ideate SmartDelete and Ideate Clone are two of the tools from the IdeateApps collection used by Modulus.
“The IdeateApps tools reduce the amount of time I spend on monotonous tasks I don’t want to be doing in the first place.”
