Coordinate Survey Point data with the Revit Model using Ideate BIMLink

Improve the accuracy of staked or installed building components by coordinating survey data with the Revit model using Ideate BIMLink. The data can be received via a total station or other device from the project site (typically as a CSV file) and then imported as 'nodes' within the Revit project by using Ideate BIMLink's ability to create new Generic Model elements.

As with Mass elements, Generic Model families can be created from an Excel file following this process:

The result is that you have a Generic Model element located at each of the locations specified in the survey.  Consider using the Pin tool to prevent them from moving.
