When a Revit building information model is so big that it needs to be split into ‘sectors’ just to fit onto a sheet, most BIM managers turn to Revit scope boxes and dependent views to keep the project well-organized. The IdeateApps collection of nine productivity tools includes several tools that can be applied to this large building project challenge:
- Ideate ViewCreator - Automatically create and name new views based on the scope boxes
- Ideate SheetManager - Automatically create new sheets based on unplaced views
Watch this video to see exactly how this can be done, saving you hours of time while ensuring the highest level of consistency for view and sheet naming conventions.
Try it out by downloading a trial of IdeateApps.
