Watch the recording of this 35-minute webinar to learn how to create new family types within your Revit projects using Ideate BIMLink, which supports the last four releases of Revit software (2021, 2020, 2019, and 2018). Demonstrations in the video use Revit 2021, but everything shown is available in the other three Revit versions as well. 

Ideate BIMLink, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary last year, is a proven product that helps thousands of Revit users all around the globe manage their Revit data by extracting it from the Revit model, sending it to Microsoft Excel for review or manipulation, and then importing it back into the Revit project for updates. As you will see in the video, many Revit elements can also be created more easily by using Excel and Ideate BIMLink.

This video shows you how to use Ideate BIMLink to move, edit and create data using Excel so your entire project team, even those who don’t know Revit, can easily use its superior editing tools to accurately and quickly:

  • Copy/Paste
  • Autofill fields
  • Concatenate Revit data
  • Search/Replace
  • Automate options and build powerful formulas

Ideate BIMLink automates the process of creating many new Revit element types such as Generic Annotation Types, View Types, Planting Types, and Wall Types, just to name a few examples. See how easy it is to create many new family types for use within your Revit project.
