This webinar is for people looking to increase productivity. In just 30 minutes, you’ll learn about Ideate Automation, which automates repetitive tasks, saving time, reducing the chance of human error, and delivering consistent and predictable outcomes.

Ideate Automation is a scripting solution that silently runs tasks in the background on PCs or virtual machines either on demand or at specific times and intervals. Used with Revit as well as with Ideate Software solutions such as Ideate BIMLink, Ideate Explorer, IdeateApps, and Ideate StyleManager, it supports Revit versions 2020-2023.

Top workflows performed by Ideate Automation include: 

  • Exporting key Revit model health data
  • Creating document issue records
  • Managing COBie data
  • Generating quantity take-off data
  • Delivering reports on key Revit family and project metrics
  • Exporting schedules from Revit
  • Creating PDF and DWG exports from Revit files

In addition to a good overview of Ideate Automation, you’ll see some examples of it in use, including setting up and scheduling a comprehensive Revit model health check that pulls information about the health of the selected Revit model from multiple Ideate Software solutions into a single Excel file that can then be used in downstream applications such as Power BI.
