Revit users from around the world submit feature requests to Autodesk through several official forums such as Revit Ideas, Autodesk Community, and the Revit Roadmap wishlist. Ideate Software pays attention! When developing new Revit plugin tools or enhancing existing tools, we dig into the forums to find out what real Revit users want, and we create tools that deliver.
To call attention to our close connection to Revit users and to highlight a few of the Revit challenges we have solved, we posted a monthly blog series in 2021, which you can find by selecting the Series – Wishlist Granted link on our Blog page. Or, to see short demonstrations of 10 of the workflows featured, you can watch the recording of this webinar.
Here’s a list of the requests addressed by Ideate Software tools and demonstrated in this webinar:
- Duplicate a Revit sheet while creating new views or swapping existing views of the sheet
- Control the view title alignment when aligning or swapping views on a sheet.
- Ease the documentation process with the help of the sheet and view tools
- Easily find elements that may be hidden in the Revit model
- Renumber almost any Revit element with intelligent rules and various methods for selection
- Implement a fully functional Revit spell checker that checks all sheets and views plus schedules
- Audit Revit models and select elements more easily
- Quickly review and fix Revit warnings to ensure a well performing model
- Manage, analyze, merge, and purge complicated Revit styles
- Live link Excel, PDF, and Word documents into your Revit project
