As a Technical Evangelist for Ideate Software, I take great pride in sharing the details of our tools that streamline Revit workflows. And I LOVE hearing back from Revit users.

After presenting information on Ideate ViewCreator at one of our recent free webinars, an attendee commented, “Nice tool. I just created four views with 20 dependents for each just using [the Revit] project browser. That was a pain.”

Although I wish she had heard my presentation before spending so much time on that manual work, I’m happy that next time, she will get it done much quicker and eliminate the “pain” factor.

Ideate ViewCreator is one of nine tools in our IdeateApps collection that simplifies the tasks that Revit users perform most often.

With Ideate ViewCreator, it’s easy to:

1.    Batch-create multiple Revit views while complying with company-established BIM standards
2.    Create multiple Revit views at the same time based on smart rules
3.    Create copies of plans from one level to many levels

Learn more by reading our help files or watching this short video.

Watch the entire webinar of IdeateApps, including the section on Ideate ViewCreator that spawned the comment.
