Recently I had the pleasure of discussing Ideate Software solutions on a webinar hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper, a publication that serves architects, designers, engineers, landscape architects, lighting designers, interior designers, academics, developers, contractors, and other parties interested in the built urban environment. 

The Architect's NewspaperThe 60-minute presentation called Advanced Revit Model Health Checks using Ideate Software Tools was attended by professionals interested in:

  • The importance of performing periodic Revit model health checks
  • Key areas that should be included in Revit model health checks
  • Revit features that can lead to poor model health

In addition to discussing the problems associated with poor model health, I demonstrated some of the ways three Ideate Software solutions can be used to help keep Revit models healthy. 

  1. Ideate BIMLink 
    • Export data to pre-configured Health Check template to review the health of a project
    • Automate the exporting of Revit model data
  2. Ideate Explorer
    • Review model standards for model clean up
    • Find elements that can contribute to file bloat
    • Compile, rank, select and clean up warnings
  3. Ideate StyleManager
    • Find and delete or merge non-standard object styles
    • Find and delete or merge non-standard line patterns
    • Find and delete or merge non-standard fonts

A recording of the presentation is available.
