“When I joined Corstorphine & Wright in April of 2022, I brought along experience with Ideate Software tools that I used in my previous role,” said Neil Carter, Head of Digital, Corstorphine & Wright. “I had used Ideate Explorer to keep models performing effectively by finding and deleting unused elements and fixing Revit warnings. I had used Ideate BIMLink to export data from Revit to Excel for editing as well as to create unplaced rooms, unplaced spaces, sheets, masses, and areas.”
After talking with his team and manager about the time savings possible with Ideate Software tools, Neil reached out to Ideate Software. In addition to talking about Ideate Explorer and Ideate BIMLink, he learned about the other add-ins for Revit—Ideate Sticky, Ideate StyleManager, and IdeateApps—as well as Ideate Automation, a scripting solution that runs time-intensive BIM tasks in the background. “The value of each of the tools was clear, and access to all of them would enable our architects to quickly get through so many different tedious data management tasks that historically have taken a lot of time.”
Corstorphine & Wright went ahead with a three-year bundle subscription as well as Ideate Automation. While some are relatively new at using the tools, the team is using both Ideate Explorer and Ideate StyleManager to optimize their Revit files, Ideate BIMLink to reliably import/export data to/from Excel for editing, and several of the tools in the IdeateApps collection to streamline everyday tasks. “So far, we are using SheetManager, Align, and Clone the most, and all are saving people a lot of time and headaches,” said Neil. He continued, “Both Ideate Explorer and Ideate BIMLink are essential tools for in-depth project file audits that we do to ensure efficiency and consistency are maintained.”
“While we haven’t used Ideate Automation yet, we are looking forward to increasing our productivity by executing time-consuming tasks in the background while we continue working on design activities,” said Neil.
Neil continued, “I appreciate the quality of Ideate Software tools, but that’s not all. Whenever I have a question, I can count on their people to provide valuable support while being professional and friendly.”
