Our webinars and blog posts featuring top ways Revit users benefit from our plug-in tools are very popular; both customers and prospective customers want to know specifically what they need to do to ensure the data in their Revit models is correct and the Revit model is tuned for the best performance possible.

Now, to get people quicker access to information requested often, we created a short video demonstrating how to use Ideate Explorer for Revit to perform 10 critical model auditing workflows. In just nine minutes, you will see step-by-step instructions on how to:

  1. Scan for element count
  2. Review model and detail lines
  3. Clean up text and dimensions
  4. Review revisions
  5. Audit Revit families and groups
  6. Review views and sheets
  7. Check grids, levels and reference planes
  8. Audit worksets
  9. Review Revit model warnings
  10. Review and delete CAD imports

Large Revit models can be difficult to understand and manage, but NOT with our Ideate Explorer add-in for Revit software. It delivers an easy-to-use interface that gives users many tools to display, sort, filter, search, and query data as well as review Revit warnings and fully understand the complex relationships of a Revit model. Ideate Explorer is an essential tool for ANY Revit user that will quickly become your most essential Revit add-in for Revit model health and model auditing.
