Step 1: Getting Started with Ideate Sticky for Revit
Adding a Sticky to your Revit project with Ideate Sticky is like adding a stickyback to your sheets - a great way to provide important, non-BIM data to your Revit project. How do we do this? Ideate Sticky creates and manages the header text within the Revit Schedule. This header text can support many non-BIM needs including code lists, general notes, consultant data, or any other kinds of tabular non-BIM data.
The best way to get started with Ideate Sticky is to use some of the sample Excel files provided.
