In an April 2021 blog post, we notified our customers of the important impact of the Autodesk rebranding of BIM 360 to ACC (Autodesk Construction Cloud).

We are happy to report that our May 2021 release of Ideate Sticky for Revit handles this name change seamlessly. This means that your team can choose to update to the newest version of the Autodesk Desktop Connector on your timeline without causing any file path problems with Ideate Sticky files, as long as you use this latest version.

You can help us advocate for improved programmatic access to the Desktop Connector by voting for this Revit Ideas forum post: Autodesk Construction Docs/ aka BIM 360 Local File API

This webinar is for those who spend a lot of time renumbering and renaming Revit elements.

You’ll see how Ideate ReNumber, one of the tools in our IdeateApps collection, can help you quickly update element numbers and names, bringing clarity to design and construction processes.

While this webinar features examples geared toward the MEP and Structure spaces, they are applicable to those in the Architecture and VDC spaces as well.

Topics covered:

  1. MEP and Structure Rules - Overview  
  2. Creating custom rules to match your project or company-specific syntax
  3. Tips for deploying those custom rules

Watch the recording. You’ll see that Ideate ReNumber ships with a lot of customer-requested rules. If you have any that you’d like us to consider adding, please let us know

You can also learn about customizing Ideate ReNumber rules in our detailed Help pages

This presentation was made at three different times for the convenience of our customers in various regions around the world. Other than the Q&A, the content was the same in each presentation.

Ideate XRay, one of the nine tools in the IdeateApps collection, solves more than 50 Revit invisibility conditions, but we are the first to admit that we haven’t nailed them all... yet. 

If you are an IdeateApps user and you discover an invisibility issue that Ideate XRay cannot solve, please let us know! Send us a file with the problem view along with as much detail as possible, including the name and/or type of element that is invisible and the name of the view in which the element is not visible.

Our team will research the issue, and if we resolve it, we’ll add your story to our Invisibility Guru Hall of Fame. Here is the most recent example where Daniel Newman of Squire and Partners, helped us identify a new source of invisibility:

------------------------------

Area Boundary Mystery Resolved

Daniel Newman of Squire and Partners discovered that area boundary lines can become orphaned in the Revit project when the related area plan view is deleted. In this instance Ideate XRay will not (yet) be able to resolve why the line cannot be displayed. (The line still ‘exists’ in a project, but boundary lines are view-specific, and these orphaned lines no longer have a view to which they belong.) 

One way to resolve this condition is to create an area plan view for the missing area scheme. The level of the new view must correspond to the level on which the boundary line was created. If the area scheme is no longer needed, you can delete the scheme which will remove all related area boundary lines at the same time.

------------------------------

Let us know how we can improve Ideate XRay!
