San Francisco, CA, 10/29/2019Ideate Software, a veteran Autodesk Developer Network member and provider of applications for Autodesk Revit software, is pleased to report the tremendous success of its newest Revit productivity solution, Ideate StyleManager.

“We started getting positive comments almost immediately after launching Ideate StyleManager this past June,” said Glynnis Patterson, Director of Software Development at Ideate Software. “Many customers had provided input as beta testers during its development, and they had high expectations. I congratulate the entire software development team for meeting and even exceeding those expectations.” 

Ideate StyleManager addresses problems that occur when styles associated with content load into a model along with the content, or when users create non-standard styles. Managing those unwanted styles in Revit can be time consuming and risky but ignoring them can cause publishing errors and end-user confusion. Ideate StyleManager fixes the problems by making it easy to:

  • Delete styles that can’t be deleted in Revit software 
  • Merge non-standard styles into standard styles 
  • Analyze the usage of all styles to understand the true scope of a deletion 
  • Clean up Object Styles, Line Styles, Line Patterns, Fill Patterns, Materials, Material Appearance Assets, View Filters, Templates and Scope Boxes 
  • Understand which views are using which View Filters

One company using Ideate StyleManager is Mackenzie, a provider of professional design services in the Pacific Northwest. When talking about Ideate StyleManager, Rusty Gesner, an Associate Principal, Director of CAD/BIM at Mackenzie, said, “It’ll save you a lot of time by ensuring your efforts at cleanup and standards maintenance don't cause inadvertent side effects.”

He continued to say that you’ll appreciate Ideate StyleManager if you’ve ever been frustrated by:

  • Searching and drilling down to determine if and where styles are used
  • Making sure there won't be collateral damage if you modify a style
  • Cleaning up the issues caused by importing and exploding a DWG
  • Combining duplicate styles

“We appreciate Rusty and the entire Mackenzie firm,” said Glynnis. “Not only do they use and promote our solutions, they also participate in beta testing, helping us achieve our goal of developing software that solves persistent problems encountered by BIM professionals in architecture, engineering, construction, and building owner workflows.”
