IdeateApps is a set of nine tools that simplify the tasks that daily Revit users perform most often. Four of the tools address specific sheet and view management challenges experienced by Revit software users:
- Creating, arranging, and replacing sheets - Ideate SheetManager
- Copying sheets after views have been placed - Ideate Clone
- Aligning views on sheets - Ideate Align
- Creating a batch-series of new views and rules for logically naming those views - Ideate ViewCreator
To introduce Revit users to these applications, we regularly host a webinar called, “Automate Sheet and View Management with IdeateApps.” To make it easy for users to retain their knowledge, we keep a recording of that webinar on our website.
In addition, we created short videos focused on each of the tools:
- Ideate SheetManager Overview Video
- Ideate Clone Overview Video
- Ideate Align Overview Video
- Ideate ViewCreator Overview Video
Please view these recordings and videos as often as needed and share them with others who you think will benefit from these tools.
