Recently, I had the terrific opportunity to speak with viewers from around the world on Revit Pure Live, a weekly show that teaches strategies on how to become a better Revit user. Hosted by Nicolas Catellier, the founder of Revit Pure, this session attracted people from Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, Colombia, Denmark, England, Namibia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Spain, Portugal, the United States, and more. 

The title of my presentation was “Mastering the Art of Revit Data,” which is something I am very passionate about. It featured a high-level overview of the Revit challenges solved by Ideate Software tools, which were my favorite when I worked as a BIM manager prior to joining Ideate, and then a deep dive into how to become a Revit Ninja by using the tools. This session covered the following topics:

  • Work around the most common Revit database access limitations
  • Efficiently navigate models relying on model data
  • Safely and quickly edit large volumes of data

I also had the honor to preview new features to Ideate Explorer and Ideate BIMLink that are in their final development stages. These features include dynamic filtering within Ideate Explorer and compound layer management within Ideate BIMLink! The recording is available on the Revit Pure Live YouTube channel.

If you have any questions regarding this presentation, please feel free to reach out to the Ideate Software technical support team.
