We at Ideate Software love Revit software. We know how powerful it is and how it transforms the way Revit users in the architecture, engineering, construction, and owner-operator fields perform their jobs. As powerful as Revit is, it does have some limitations. Our goal as a company is to talk with Revit users, learn which of those limitations create the greatest challenges, and develop plugins for Revit that address those challenges.

Reasons the Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Owner-Operator Industries use Revit

Used by an estimated 4 million subscribers around the world, Revit is the most popular BIM tool within the AEC community. Why? People love it because it excels at transforming data created in 3D models into realistic documentation and visualizations of buildings and structures that architects, MEP engineers, structural engineers, construction workers, building managers, and others use to share, review, update, and confirm designs. The single platform used for multidisciplinary BIM workflows, from design through operation, leads to enhanced designs, fewer errors, and less rework, all which contribute to an outstanding employee and client experience. 

In addition to enabling the sharing, syncing, and iterating designs between architects, engineers, contractors, building operators, and others, Revit software also delivers specialty toolsets that offer capabilities specific to each discipline. Here are a just few examples: 

  • Architects
    • ArchitectsArchitects create fully functional mock-ups of buildings that not only support construction, but also help sales and marketing teams because they can walk potential clients and other stakeholders through the building and point out specific features that interest the specific audience.
    • For remodels and renovations, Revit software can integrate with Autodesk ReCap, which allows the user to take points from photographs of existing structures and import them into Revit, so architects work with an accurate portrayal of the buildings.
    • Using the analysis features in Revit, architects can optimize the performance of a building in the early stages, run cost estimates, and monitor performance over the lifetime of the project and the building.
       
  • Structural Engineers
    • Structural EngineerComplying with local requirements is easy in Revit because the software works with localized libraries and templates that can be edited to meet the needs of any project.
    • Detailed 3D Revit models are used to create many bidirectional views, like 3D details, schedules, and sections. Since all the views are stored in the same model, when the engineer makes a change to one, the others automatically update. 
    • While creating the physical model in Revit, the engineers use the analytical model to conduct structural analysis and export to analysis and design applications.
       
  • MEP Engineers
    • MEP EngineersThis easy-to-use modeling tool increases the productivity of MEP professionals by automatically placing ducts, pipes, and fittings.
    • With access to manufacturer-specific content, the engineers create exact digital representations prior to construction as well as as-built models after construction.
    • By using the multiple views in a Revit model, engineers check for clashes and issues in the design process, avoiding costly on-site mistakes.
       
  • Contractors/Construction
    • Contractor - ConstructionConstruction teams prepare construction documents with 2D drafting services that include elevation plans, foundation plans, roofing, sectional drawings, structural framing, floor plans, and more.
    • By automatically calculating the amount of material needed, Revit helps contractors minimize waste, reduce the cost of the project, and keep the project moving forward instead of dealing with material shortages.
    • Before any construction begins, contractors confirm that the designs can be successfully implemented by assessing the steadiness of the foundation, systems, fixtures, material choices, etc. to detect flaws.     

Enhancing the Power of Revit with Ideate Software Plugins

Ideate Software is an Autodesk Authorized Developer and is a member of the Autodesk Developer Network. We develop Revit plugins that give customers unprecedented access to and control over their Revit data. In 2008 we launched our first Revit plugin, Ideate Explorer. Since then, we added Ideate BIMLink, Ideate Sticky, Ideate StyleManager, and IdeateApps to our list of tools that solve persistent problems for Revit users in architecture, engineering, construction, and building management. In June 2022, we launched Ideate Automation 2.0 to boost the power of our plugins for Revit by running time-intensive activities in the background. All our tools help Revit users perform tasks in much less time, freeing them to spend more time on interesting and valuable activities.

Here are highlights of the capabilities of our tools:

  1. Ideate Explorer – To solve the challenge of finding hidden problems in a Revit model, we developed Ideate Explorer, which is a model browser that shows each instance of elements within the Revit model; the browser in Revit is simply a project browser. With Ideate Explorer, users can easily:
    • Search for and find hidden problem items including DWG imports or links
    • Navigate through view-based elements within Revit
    • Search on parameters such as elements assigned a certain size
    • Review and manage Revit warnings 
       
  2. Ideate BIMLink – Data in Revit models needs to be checked regularly for accuracy, and when design changes occur, it needs to be updated. The process in Revit can be time consuming and frustrating for everyone involved, from the person entering the data to the people waiting for the end product. Ideate BIMLink eliminates the problem by enabling users to move data from Revit into Excel, where its powerful functionality makes verifying, correcting, and updating data fast and easy. Then, when the data is correct, the user simply uses Ideate BIMLink to bring it back into the model, which automatically updates. Tasks that once took hours take just minutes.
     
  3. Ideate Sticky – Revit teams need access to a wealth of non-BIM data, which, without Ideate Sticky, is difficult to format nicely. With Ideate Sticky, users live link formatted text in Microsoft Excel, Word, and PDF documents to their Revit projects, ensuring everyone has access to the correct information, such as:
    • Building codes
    • Specifications
    • General notes
    • Abbreviation lists
    • Consultant data
    • Document issue records
       
  4. Ideate StyleManager – A bloated Revit file doesn’t perform well, and one of the most common causes of a bloated file is extraneous data which often comes from copying and pasting data from other files. Done incorrectly, this process brings in all the style information associated with the original file. With Ideate StyleManager, one of our plugins for Revit, this is never a problem, because users can quickly analyze, delete, or merge non-standard styles.
     
  5. IdeateApps – This collection of 10 tools streamlines common tasks identified by Revit users as tedious, time consuming, and error prone, such as batch-creating views, copying sheets, aligning plan views, renumbering elements, ensuring the legibility of annotations, and more. Whether used as Revit architecture plugins or by MEP or structural engineers, the IdeateApps Revit plugin delivers insight into models, improves the quality of Revit models, and frees the users’ time to do more interesting and valuable activities.
     
  6. Ideate Automation – We developed this scripting tool to automate time consuming tasks in Revit and Ideate Software solutions, such as:
  • Creating PDF exports from Revit files
  • Auditing Revit family size
  • Checking compliance with standards in Revit
  • Automating common tasks in Ideate Software applications for Revit to:
    • Create health check reports
    • Create document issue records
    • Manage COBie data
    • Generate quantity take-off data
    • Extract model warnings data
    • Review Revit model style information
    • Review annotation clashes on views and sheets

We were pleased to have once again had the opportunity to demonstrate the time-saving capabilities of our Revit plug-ins on a webinar hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper, which serves architects, designers, engineers, landscape architects, lighting designers, interior designers, academics, developers, contractors, and others interested in the built urban environment. 

In this latest webinar, we focused on managing Revit sheets and views; previous topics include managing Revit warnings and advanced Revit model health checks.

Ideate Software Revit Plugin Tool on Architect's Newspaper Webinar
 
Watch the recording of this one-hour webinar to learn about the sheet and view tools in our IdeateApps collection that decrease the time spent on common Revit tasks while increasing the accuracy of the BIM data in the Revit model. There are currently 10 tools in the collection, five of which we covered in the webinar:

  1. Ideate ViewCreator – Learn how easy it is to quickly bulk create views and how much time you will save by defining names for new views that match existing view crop, scope, scale, and dozens of other system and custom parameters, so you don’t have to manually apply the settings to each view.
     
  2. Ideate SheetManager – Often referred to as the Central Traffic Cop for the sheet and view workflows, this tool allows users to create new sheets and drag and drop views between sheets, as well as access Ideate Software’s other sheet and view tools, ViewCreator, Align, and Clone. 
     
  3. Ideate Align – See several examples of how to use this tool to align viewports, ensuring consistency across all sheets.
     
  4. Ideate Clone – Watch demonstrations on duplicating sheets. While Revit introduced the ability to duplicate sheets in version 2022.1 and to swap viewports between sheets in version 2023, Ideate Clone goes back to Revit version 2016 and provides greater functionality than in even the latest Revit release.
     
  5. Ideate Annotate – Understand the annotations on views and sheets and drill down further to ensure the legibility and consistency of Revit tags, text, dimensions, and other annotative elements; learn how to review annotation issues such as clashes between annotations, blank tags, hidden elements, or zero length dimensions.

Highlights of the Other Tools in the IdeateApps Plugin for Revit Collection

Learn More About Ideate Software Plugins for RevitThe information above describes just a portion of the capabilities of the 10 tools with in the IdeateApps collection. Here are several other resources that can give you a deeper dive into the power of this Revit plugin that users in all disciplines, at all levels, and in all roles use to shorten the time they spend on model management and improve the look and performance of their Revit models.

  • Ideate ReNumber – This tool within the IdeateApps collection makes it easy to keep up with design changes that alter numbering and naming. Watch this short demonstration video for an overview. Here are links to a few resources that provide more details:
     
    • Using Ideate ReNumber to Select Split-Level Rooms – This blog post is part of our Support Series where we highlight specific questions received by our Support team. In this instance, a customer with a series of rooms on different split levels where the rooms were visible in the same plan view was having trouble getting Ideate ReNumber to pick up the room on the Mezzanine level.
       
    • Renaming Sheets to ISO 19650 Using Ideate ReNumber – Read this short blog post to see how to use Ideate ReNumber to renumber sheets to the BS EN ISO 19650 standard using one of rules created and saved in the bonus rules that ship with IdeateApps.
       
  • Ideate SmartDelete – Who hasn’t deleted an item within a Revit model only to find that several other items were deleted with it? It’s such a common problem that many people posted about it on Revit forums. We did something about it! The Ideate SmartDelete tool shows you all the elements that will be deleted with your selection, and lets you select the items that you want to keep.
     
  • Ideate SpellCheck – Spelling errors in a Revit model can give the reader the impression that you don’t pay attention to details. However, finding all typos or errors in a Revit model can be incredibly difficult, because the spellchecker that comes in the software doesn’t check data found within schedules. Ideate SpellCheck does! 
     
    • Ideate SpellCheck Overview – Watch this short video to see how to use this powerful tool to define the range of sheets, views, and schedules within your project that you’d like to spellcheck. 
       
    • Recording of 03-25-20 Webinar: Learn the Simple ABCs of Ideate SpellCheck – Take a deeper dive by watching the recording of this webinar in which we covered:
       
      • An overview of Ideate SpellCheck
         
      • How to set up the dictionaries
         
      • The three selection methods for checking text
         
      • Demonstrations of each method
         
      • Tips and tricks
         
  • Ideate XRay – Do you spend a lot of time searching for elements that you know are there but can’t see? That’s because Revit allows a lot of option to display or hide elements within the model, and the out-of-the-box capabilities for diagnosing visibility issues within Revit are limited. Ideate XRay is the answer! 
     
  • Ideate QuickSelect - The fact that the Revit project browser doesn’t search all items in your model can create problems that are time consuming and frustrating to fix. With the Ideate QuickSelect model browser, you can increase your productivity by quickly locating, reviewing, and editing hard-to-find items, including model or annotation elements, inserted or linked CAD files, section boxes, scope boxes, elevation of section markers, schedule graphics, and view references.

Every day, our Ideate Software Support team fields all types of questions from AECO professionals all around the world. You can review some of these recent question and answers via our Ideate Software Support Series blog category.

This was an interesting question that came into our support queue. The customer had a series of rooms on different split levels where the rooms were all visible in the same plan view. This customer was using the Select Path – Crossing method within Ideate ReNumber, but Ideate ReNumber wasn’t picking up the room on the Mezzanine level below.

Ideate ReNumber - Room on Messanine below leval 2
Here is a simple example showing the rooms in section with one room being located on the Mezzanine level, which is below the main Level 2.

 

Ideate ReNumber - Split Levels - Select path Crossing Section Method
When using the Select Path – Crossing selection method, only the rooms on Level 2 were being selected for renumbering.

The customer could easily select each room element with the Select Elements method within Ideate ReNumber, but the crossing didn’t seem to pick up the room below on the Mezzanine Level.

The better method for selecting rooms that might vary over different split levels would be to use the Select Path – Vertex method. The reason is that the vertex method uses a different algorithm. In the vertex method, the path vertex is projected as a ray into the view from the viewpoint direction (i.e., negative z axis) of the user. The room or space is chosen for numbering if a point on the ray at the height of the view cut plane is within the room.

Ideate ReNumber - Split Levels - Select Path - Vertex Method
When using the Select Path – Vertex selection method, ALL the rooms on Level 2 are selected for renumbering.

Therefore, we recommend using either the Select Elements method or the Select Path – Vertex method when specifically dealing with rooms that may vary over different levels. This method is also recommended because it supports more complex paths.The vertex method can handle a path that crosses over itself to support complex room numbering. 

Ideate ReNumber - Selecting Split Levels - Complex Path

This is an example of a complex path that passes over itself.  This is supported very nicely with the Select Path – Vertex selection method.

Please review all the different numbering methods available within Ideate ReNumber and all the excellent How to Use Ideate ReNumber topics from our online HELP files for additional information.

We all love a good Revit model. It helps architects finetune and share their visions, it enables all engineering teams to confirm their designs don’t clash with others, and it increases the productivity of construction and maintenance crews. Through detailed 3D models, Revit speeds the design process and reduces the chances of costly mistakes. 

What makes a Revit model so powerful? Data! Massive amounts of data. 

While all that data is what gives a model its strength, it also can be a model’s downfall: obsolete elements, imported data, incorrect styles, and more can cause performance and documentation issues. 

To avoid these issues and keep your projects moving along smoothly, it’s important to manage that data. Proactively managing the data is best. Knowing where to turn when things take a turn for the worse is also important. 

In this post, I share information about what causes Revit model problems, symptoms of unhealthy models, and how Ideate Software plugins for Revit can help you proactively audit files and to clean up problem items. 

TOO MUCH DATA CAN MAKE YOUR REVIT MODEL SICK

How does all that extra data get into models?  

Copy/Paste

Too Much Revit DataWhen done correctly, using copy/paste to bring existing data into a model and linking to previous projects can save a lot of time, but when done incorrectly, they can bring in massive amounts of unnecessary data associated with the original files.  
When you do any of the following activities, you run the risk of bringing unneeded data into the Revit file:

  1. Load unvetted families 
  2. Link and bind Revit files 
  3. Link, import, or explode CAD files
  4. Transfer project standards
  5. Insert views and schedules
  6. Create a large quantity of lines and text objects

An Excessive Number of Warnings

A Revit error requires users to resolve the issue before continuing. However, a Revit warning simply informs of a condition that may affect the model, but it allows users to continue working. With looming deadlines, it can be tempting to put the warnings on a back burner. This practice can be problematic, because if the number of warnings climbs, it can impact model performance. 

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR MODEL IS UNHEALTHY?

Fortunately, model health problems typically start off small and show signs that indicate that problems are accumulating. Watch out for:  

  1. “Save” issues
  2. Long sync times
  3. Slow performance
    • Dialog boxes that take a long time to load
    • Slow commands
    • Slow opening views
  4. Linework that jumps while you zoom and pan
  5. Exporting and printing problems
  6. Model upgrade difficulties
  7. Crashing 

If you spot any of these signs, take action! If left unchecked, the problems can continue to compound, and you may end up getting a message that requires immediate, difficult, and time-consuming attention, such as: 

  • “A fatal error has occurred”
  • “Unrecoverable error”
  • “Missing elements”
  • “This model is incompatible with…”

Revit Health ChecksAVOID THE PROBLEMS WITH PERIODIC HEALTH CHECKS

It is much easier, less time consuming, and better for everyone involved in the project to prevent problems from reaching the tipping point than to try to fix a model on its deathbed. 

KEEP YOUR MODELS CLEAN WITH IDEATE SOFTWARE PLUGINS FOR REVIT 

Before I joined Ideate Software in 2021, I had used its Revit plugins for more than 10 years; I knew they worked, and I knew the company was committed to developing solutions to real challenges faced by Revit users. In fact, I was part of several beta testing programs to verify that enhancements and new products addressed real needs, performed as described, and delivered exceptional value. 

Ideate Software products helped me keep my Revit models in top working condition, and I know they will do the same for you. 

Here are some ways Ideate Software add-ins for Revit can help you maintain model health: 

  • With Ideate BIMLink, you can export health check and QA/QC data from Revit into Microsoft Excel for review in Excel and Power BI where it is easy to locate, identify, and flag QA/QC issues or areas of concern.  

    Ideate BIMLink comes with more than 300 preconfigured links, or series of parameter data mapped together for export to Excel. These links make it easy for users to choose the items they want to review in Excel. And, because exporting a large amount of data from multiple files can take a long time, Ideate Software developed Ideate Automation to automates the process. You can set it to run manually or schedule it to run at a more convenient time, such as overnight. 
     
  • Dig deep into your Revit models with our model browser, Ideate Explorer. Revit has a project browser, which isn’t as powerful. With Ideate Explorer you can easily complete on-demand reviews of QA/QC tasks such as finding and removing CAD imports; addressing group usage; querying element selections to determine if they are pinned, flipped, modelled as in-place families; and more. To give you added control over the data in your Revit model, Ideate Explorer comes with three components: 
     
    • As mentioned earlier in this article, Revit warnings can indicate that a model is unhealthy. With the Warnings Manager that comes with Ideate Explorer, warnings management is easy. The program ranks warnings, notifies users when models contain high-ranking warnings, and allows users to correct problems using tools in Revit when the Warnings Manager dialog box is open. 
       
    • Moving through view-based elements is not a problem with the Navigate function in our Revit add-in Ideate Explorer. With it, you can easily find unused sheets and views; find and filter legends, schedules, sheets, or views by category and/or keyword; and customize working environments without altering the project browser. 
       
    • Use the Query function that comes with Ideate Explorer to search within set parameters for elements such as unused annotations, revisions, in-place usage, design options, structure usage/area scheme, and more.  
       
  • Standard styles keep documentation looking nice and brand compliant. Non-standard styles can make documents look sloppy while also bloating file sizes and negatively impacting model performance. With Ideate StyleManager, another Revit plugin by Ideate Software, users can analyze, merge, or delete non-standard Revit styles faster and more accurately than they can when using the style management system that comes with Revit.
