Sample Scripts

Ideate Automation contains several sample script (.def) files that can be used to open Revit and run your licensed Ideate Explorer and other licensed Ideate Software processes in the background. The scripts can be used by Ideate Automation or used in conjunction with other tools, like the Windows Task Scheduler.

The IEXExportWarnings command is used by Ideate Automation within all of the scripts listed below. The options for this command is to use the Warning Rankings data saved within the Revit file or to use the externally defined version of that file. The scripts below are all designed to use the externally defined version, so that all results are based on the same standard: 

C:\ProgramData\Ideate\Ideate Explorer\en-US\Rankings\DefaultWarnings.xml
