Are your Revit projects cluttered with schedules whose sole purposes are to find elements?

There’s no need to create these schedules if you have Ideate Query.

Ideate Query is a powerful selection refinement tool within Ideate Explorer that lets you browse through your Revit elements and make a selection based on the parameters' values. You can also use it to find important properties that aren’t available through the Revit Schedule tool.

With Ideate Query, you can:

  • Select all elements that are assigned to a certain size or Mark value
  • Find Sheets based on their Revision or Issuance numbers
  • Find and review dimensions that have been overridden
  • Review all the elements that are modeled as in-place families

See how easy it is to use the Query function by viewing this short demonstration video:
