- Enhanced room data incorporated into Ideate ReNumber
- One click to renumber all doors, lights, or furniture in a view
- Create and share rules
Ideate ReNumber, included in the toolset IdeateApps, allows our customers to quickly and repeatedly renumber or rename elements in their model. The process is repeatable with the push of a button, returning consistent results every time and automatically handling uniqueness requirements in Revit.
The expanded room data increases the ability to renumber based on room data, either by including the information in the resulting value or by incrementing alphanumeric values per room, starting the increment over with each new room. These two features combined allow all the doors, lights, or furniture in a view to be renumbered with the click of a button, no matter how your project is structured. Ideate ReNumber will automatically handle:
- Rooms from varied sources like linked files and varied phases
- Fixing or temporarily overriding the ‘To Room’ value
Due an Revit API limitation, we are only able to report linked rooms for doors that use ‘Room Calculation Point.’
Ideate ReNumber also supports transferring values from one parameter to another. For example, it can be used to transfer room information in a linked file to the associated spaces, or to name interior elevations displayed in a schedule or on a sheet based on the room they display.
Renaming spaces using room names. Space numbers can also be updated.
The name of a space can be updated to match the name of the room in the architectural model. This is most effective in a schedule, where all the spaces of a phase are listed together.
Many of the rules mentioned are included as default choices in Ideate ReNumber, but additional rules can be created or loaded from the ‘Bonus Rules’ folder of the install. These rules can then be shared using a network location so that all installs have access to the same rules. If you would like to learn more about creating rules or sharing them within your company, feel free to contact Ideate Software.
