Are you looking to reduce the time you spend on Revit model management? Start using Ideate BIMLink + Ideate Automation, Ideate Explorer and Ideate StyleManager to address your Revit model’s health and prevent:
- Slowness during opening, closing and while working in models
- “Save” issues
- Printing and exporting problems
- Model upgrade difficulties
- Noncompliance with company standards
With Ideate BIMLink, you can push large amounts of model health check and QA/QC-related data from your Revit model into Microsoft Excel for review in Excel and Power BI.
Using Ideate Automation, you can export large amounts of data from multiple Revit files to Excel without being present, so you can run it overnight and the next day, your data will be ready for review.
Use Ideate Explorer for on-demand reviews of QA/QC tasks such as finding and removing CAD imports, addressing group usage and querying a selection of elements to determine if they are pinned, flipped, modeled as in-place families and so much more. Going a step further, use features built into Ideate Explorer to help manage and address warnings, ensuring models are in good health.
Finally, with Ideate StyleManager, dive deeply into projects, templates and families for usage of styles, such as object styles, line patterns, fill patterns, materials, fonts, text and much more, to determine usage and if needed, remove unused styles and merge and purge unwanted styles, ensuring that Revit projects, templates, and families are lean, healthy, and in compliance with standards.
Here’s a link to a recording of our recent webinar in which we highlighted the importance of addressing Revit model health and demonstrated how our tools make the process easy and accurate.
