When quickly describing Ideate BIMLink, we say that it’s a BIM data management tool that lets you move data from a Revit model to an Excel spreadsheet for easy editing, and then push the updated data back into the model with speed, ease, and accuracy.
It is so much more than that.
Below is a list of ways you can use Ideate BIMLink to leverage the data in your Revit model as well as links to the related Help files that have more details and step-by-step instructions:
- Create New Revit Elements
- Perform Quality Control Checks
- Manage Revit Key Schedule Data
- Manage Revit Sheet-based Revisions
- Manage Revit Project Standards
- Set Up New Projects
- Swap One Revit Element for Another
- Manage Calculated Values
- Import Linked Revit File Data
- Assign Space Types
- Create Construction Tasks
- Import Re-formatted Ideate BIMLink Data Via Ideate Sticky
