San Francisco, CA, 04/29/2014-Ideate, Inc., a multi-decade veteran Autodesk Developer Network member and Autodesk Gold Value Added Reseller today announced the delivery of Ideate BIMLink 2015.0 and Ideate Explorer for Revit 2015.0. The release of these Ideate Software  solutions is concurrent with the Autodesk Revit 2015 product launch.

The solutions have been ported to the 2015 Autodesk Revit platform in support of Revit users' software migration and testing processes. Both solutions support any changes to the data structures within the Revit file format.

Ideate Software is a set of far-reaching BIM data management tools that help the Revit community clean up models, delete problem items, analyze files quickly, improve speed and accuracy in data flow, increase collaboration and overcome repeated workflow interruptions.

Ideate Director of Software Development Glynnis Patterson says, "As we do traditionally, we have shipped congruently with Revit 2015 in support of our customers' operational reality. Certainly, many Revit-users continue to work in and maintain projects in earlier versions. At the same time, our customers may undertake migration and testing processes for 2015. Having congruent versions of Revit and Ideate Software helps our customers move projects forward."

Bob Palioca, President, Ideate Inc. says of the 2015 Ideate Software release, "Providing BIM data management solutions that answer tough challenges is our great delight. We want the Revit community to know, when you are ready to migrate and test your migration environment, we are ready with the tools you need."

Both Ideate BIMLink and Ideate Explorer for Revit carry five star ratings on the Autodesk Exchange Apps Store, and both are available with a 30 day non-commercial trial. For more information, call 888.662.7238, contact [email protected], and for support, contact [email protected].
