Ideate Software was on the road again visiting the beautiful city by the Bay in late October! 

San Francisco is the headquarters of Ideate Software, but Technical Evangelist, Richard Taylor, hopped across the country from Boston to present a lunch and learn session for the AIA San Francisco Center for Architecture.

Richard delivered a presentation called “Clone Yourself and Save Time on Repetitive Revit Tasks,” where he showed how Revit users can stop wasting time on tedious, repetitive tasks and reduce intense boring work with top BIM data management workflows that essentially allow you to clone yourself and gain an employee.

The 30+ attendees learned how to create new Revit family and project parameters using Ideate BIMLink, how to easily manage materials to ensure Revit model accuracy, and how to automatically create comprehensive document issue and revision data. 

In addition, attendees learned how to avoid annotative clashes and ensure accurate documentation within their Revit projects by using IdeateApps

Ideate Automation was the breakout star of the 90-minute presentation. You can review the eye-popping breakout star by watching our Ideate Automation video without leaving your computer or visiting either Bay!

Joining Richard at the event for lively discussions about all things BIM and data management were Ideate Software team members Rahul Verma and Moe Kress.

Taking advantage of his cross-country trek, Richard also took the opportunity to visit some important Ideate Software customers in the San Francisco area, visit the Autodesk office, and have some excellent coffee along the way!


Before you could say “Revit’s your Uncle,” Richard was flying back across the country from the Pacific to the Atlantic shores.  

Ideate Software is spanning the country from sea to shining sea with Revit productivity and BIM data management workflows for all Revit users.

We will see you in Las Vegas for AU2023!
