What's New

December 2022 Release (2.1 Update)

General Improvements

This release of Ideate Automation provides direct access to any of your BIM 360/ACC recently opened Revit files, without requiring the Autodesk Custom Integration. While the custom integration is still recommended for an optimum file access experience, this change makes it much easier to work with Revit files that are shared from your collaboration partner’s Autodesk account/hubs. It also allows you to use Ideate Automation without giving Ideate Software the BIM 360/ACC access permissions required for the custom integration.

New Workflows

This release includes the much requested ability to batch export Revit sheets and/or views to DWG file format for Revit versions 2020-2023+. File naming support includes short name, long name, and custom file naming conventions. Look for these new scripts and learn more in this topic: Publish to DWG
