We thank Garrett Broadnax, Designer, EIT at Kinetics in Austin, Texas for letting us know about his experience with Ideate XRay. Kinetics is a full-service process and mechanical contractor specializing in the design and installation of process, mechanical, plumbing and HVAC systems.

XRay is one of the IdeateApps tools developed to streamline the activities that Autodesk Revit software users perform most often.  

“Ideate XRay saves me a lot of time and frustration; it flattens the learning curve for Revit by parsing through layers of data and giving you an interpretable, actionable answer.” stated Garrett. “Before XRay, it could take 5 to 10 minutes to sort through the myriad visibility parameters in Revit and find out why an element wasn’t showing up in a particular view. With XRay, I simply select (in a different view) the element that’s not showing up, hit a button, and about 3 seconds later it tells me why it’s invisible – and fixes the problem with another click. In addition to directly solving my problem, using it trains you to think about these parameters as you’re setting up your project, to avoid these issues in the first place.”
