Manage your Revit & BIM Data with Ideate Software

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that relies on intelligent models to create and manage
building and infrastructure projects. Accurate, accessible, and actionable information in those models empowers project stakeholders to make better-informed decisions and respond quickly to project needs.

But how can you manage your BIM and Revit data?

To help you validate the Revit data and resolve individual model issues, and proactively support all projects by incorporating the applications into model management processes, you need tools.

Ideate Software is all about helping you manage your BIM data, whether you’re a power Revit user or BIM Manager. It helps the project team audit, edit, manage, and connect your BIM and Revit model data with precision, for an enhanced workflow.

Here is a list and description of the full Ideate Software portfolio that you can use on its own or together to help you, your model, and your project team be more efficient across your project workflow:

Ideate StyleManager addresses the challenges that arise when Revit users load or import content into the model because the corresponding styles automatically come with the content. Proper management of these styles reduces publishing errors and end-user confusion, but the management process in Revit can be time-consuming and risky, and errors can dramatically impact the models and production documents.

Ideate BIMLink allows Autodesk Revit users to pull information from a file into Microsoft Excel and push volumes of precise, consequential BIM data back into their Revit model with speed, ease, and accuracy.  Data management tasks and workflow take a small fraction of the time they once took. The cumulative advantage means more than hours freed. You gain unprecedented access to the Revit modeling data you need for an enhanced workflow.

Ideate Explorer allows Revit professionals to keep their models clean and accurate. When using this model browser, as opposed to a project browser, users decrease the time they spend on model management and increase the accuracy of their models.  They reduce file space by finding and deleting incorrect, obsolete, and hidden problem items, including DWGs.  They can easily comply with office standards, they can Audit the Revit model and even review and fix Revit warnings.

Ideate Sticky for Revit combines the ease and flexibility of Excel spreadsheet editing with the convenience of a sticky note. Use Ideate Sticky to elegantly connect non-BIM data from an Excel file into Revit projects, enhancing cross-team workflows.

IdeateApps is a set of Revit applications designed to increase the productivity of the entire project team. Developed with specific tasks in mind, these tools address the challenges identified by people who use Revit software every day. IdeateApps will decrease the time spent on common tasks and increase the accuracy of BIM data in a Revit model, helping to keep projects of all sizes and complexities on time and on budget.

Which Ideate Software solution or a host of solutions is best for you?

It depends on your Revit goals whether you want to:

  • Find and fix problems that could impact the model size
  • Sync time and performance
  • Identify and delete views that aren’t on sheets
  • Find and remove CAD files inadvertently imported into Revit
  • Update standards on older model
  • Clean up Revit warnings
  • Align worksets after binding a model

We can help you determine the right solution for your Revit goals. Let us know and email info@microsolresources.com and we’d be happy to assist you.

Microsol Resources Hosts TECH Perspectives | Boston 2019

Technology is transforming the way that buildings and infrastructure are designed, constructed and operated. It is helping improve decision making and performance across the buildings and infrastructure lifecycle.

Join us at TECH Perspectives on September 26, 2019 in Boston where we will discuss and showcase the most exciting technologies driving significant change in the design and construction industry.

Where Design Technologies and Innovations Come Together

TECH Perspectives Boston 2019

9OFS | One Federal Street, Boston, MA 02110
Thursday, September 26, 2019 | 8:30 am to 1:00 pm
bit.ly/techperspectivesboston2019

Taking place at 9OFS, a conference center located on the open-air terrace on the 9th Floor of One Federal Street in Boston’s Financial District on Thursday, September 26, 2019, Microsol Resources will host a half-day program of architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry thought leaders.

“Technology is changing how designers and builders collaborate more effectively throughout the project lifecycle,” said Emilio Krausz, President of Microsol Resources. “TECH Perspectives will share the newest innovations shaping our built world and invites all project stakeholders from architects to engineers, constructors and owners, and to engage with technology and forge communities around it.”

This year’s Opening Keynote speaker is Dr. Andrea Chegut, Director of the MIT Real Estate Innovation Lab, as well as the head of MIT’s Design X venture accelerator for student and faculty firms from MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning. As a researcher, she investigates new technologies and their economic implications on the built environment.

The Industry Keynote speaker is Jim Lynch, Vice President & General Manager of Autodesk Construction Solutions. He leads Autodesk’s efforts to create and deliver products and services that accelerate the construction industry’s transformation from analog-based processes to digital workflows.

We will hear from design technology innovators about:

Collaboration & Building Information Modeling (BIM)

With BIM at the core of your project delivery, the need for anytime, anywhere, collaboration, data continuity comes into play. How do we make sure we’re all working on the most up to date information and maintaining a single source of truth? We will hear from Jeremy Munn, Program Director of Northeastern University; Nirva Fereshetian, Associate Principal Chief Information Officer of CBT Architects; Paul Kassabian, Principal of Simpson Gumpertz & Heger; and Jack Moran, Manager of VDC Services of Consigli Construction.

Visualization: Enhanced Realities and Immersive Experiences

Technology enables visualizing spaces and render architectural models in immersive environments, utilizing augmented reality to create three-dimensional objects within a real space, and creating a VR walkthrough based on your BIM data. What are the new ways to better visualize, share and construct projects? We will hear from Michael Kyes, Architecture Team of Leader of SMMA; Danielle O’Connell, Senior Manager, VDC Services Innovative Construction Solutions of Skanska; Andy Hinterman, Senior Associate of LDa Architecture & Interiors; David Hamel, 3D Visualization Group Manager of Payette; and Seunghyun Kim, Director of Design Technology of Safdie Architects.

List of Exhibitors include Autodesk, Ideate Software, GeoSLAM, Panzura.

The half day conference is accredited by the AIA for 3.5 Continuing Education Units.
