Recently, I the opportunity to deliver a presentation on Ideate Software add-in tools for Revit at a meeting of BIMxt Network, which started as a collection of U.S. Revit user groups on the east coast that discussed BIM on monthly Zoom calls. The meetings have gotten so popular that they now have attendees from across the United States and even some from other countries. Watch a recording of the 25-minute presentation.
During the call, I introduced Ideate Software and demonstrated how:
- Ideate BIMLink, Ideate Explorer, and Ideate StyleManager can be used to improve model health.
- Ideate Automation takes information from Ideate BIMLink, Ideate Explorer, and Ideate Annotate (the newest tool added to the IdeateApps collection) to create an Excel “dashboard” of Revit model health. Here’s a short video on the process:
