Convert Links in a Revit Model Project with Ideate BIMLink

The Convert link tool in Ideate BIMLink can be used to quickly create a new link that is the opposite link Type as the selected link.  In this example, the Concrete Beam Schedule link was created, from an existing Revit Schedule, and was originally defined as an Instance link. By using the Convert link tool a new link will be created that is a Type link.  If the original link is a Type link then using Convert link will create a new Instance link.  This is a useful way to quickly access both the Type and Instance parameters.

When an Instance link is converted to create a Type, any instance parameters will be automatically removed.  All remaining Type parameters will be editable if permitted by Revit.
