Getting the job done quickly and correctly is what all firms must accomplish in today’s business climate. Autodesk Revit software is about project data, and Ideate Explorer has lightning fast Revit data discovery and manipulation.

Ideate Explorer: A True Revit Model Browser

As you may be aware, a Revit model is made up of thousands of complex elements, supported by a large amount of attached data. As the building information model becomes more complex with the addition of more elements and other design disciplines, it becomes crucial to understand the sum of elements contained within the model as well as the potential relationships between elements. The built-in Revit project browser was never intended to display or help you navigate through these relationships. Ideate Query, on the other hand, is a powerful search, find, and filter tool within Ideate Explorer. 

Ideate Explorer lists every instance of every element by category and type, and you can then use Ideate Query to refine your selections on almost any Revit property associated with the selected elements. This allows you to look at your selection at a granular level, so you can make informed decisions on what to do with the data. Ideate Explorer is a true Revit model browser.

Save Time and Reduce Risks

Without a powerful search, find, and filter tool like Ideate Query, you are guaranteed to spend hours each week looking for specific information in your Revit model the hard way, and you still will not have access to all the data that you need. This could leave your Revit project at risk, exposing you to potential liability during construction, or at best, expensive remodeling and drafting tasks downstream.

Get a Strong Return on Your Revit Software Investment

What will it cost your firm to fix downstream construction errors in the field that could potentially be avoided by maintaining a healthy Revit project? Find out all about the return on investment and business value of using Ideate Explorer with Ideate Query by watching this short video.
