Since the launch of Ideate ReNumber for Revit, several customers have come to us with their unique renumbering challenges. One of those has been pile foundations, which present challenges because they need to be numbered in a way that reflects their relative location as well as their relationship to the nested pile families. This task is one of the many that Ideate ReNumber can handle. Because other people may find the solution valuable, we created this short video called: IdeateApps ReNumber Tool — Advanced Numbering: Pile Foundations.

In the example, we walk you through the steps to quickly assign meaningful numbers to both the pile caps and their piles relative to their related concrete pour sequencing. With this information, you will be able to easily customize the process to meet your specific needs.

Ideate ReNumberIdeate ReNumber for Revit plays an important role in model management for our engineering design and construction customers. It provides a way to efficiently document building elements — such as pile foundations — with logical numbering schemas, bringing clarity to construction sequencing work. It is part of our IdeateApps for Revit collection of tools designed to simplify the tasks that daily Revit users perform most often.
