Avoid Manual Errors, Prevent On-Site Delays, and Remove Error-Based Re-Work in your Revit Model
Even unseen BIM data can be managed. With Ideate BIMLink, you can take full advantage of Excel’s capability to reveal multiple lines of data at once. Eliminate the ‘double handling’ of data and reduce the chance of manual errors, avoid related costly on-site delays, and remove error-based re-work. BIMLink opens a wide, safe door for collaboration between Revit and non-Revit users, allowing the entire project team to access Revit modeling data for more efficient project management. Improve the speed and accuracy of the data. Enhance the Revit workflow by stretching your per-project hours, saving money and time.
Ideate BIMLink Features
With Ideate BIMLink, you can pull information from a Revit file into user-friendly Microsoft Excel and push volumes of precise, consequential BIM data from Excel into Revit with speed, ease, and accuracy.
Data management tasks take a small fraction of the time they once took. The cumulative time-saving advantage means more than hours freed. You gain unprecedented access to the Revit data you need. You eliminate ‘double handling’ of data, so you reduce the chance of manual errors, avoid related costly on-site delays, and eliminate error-based re-work. The tool opens a wide, safe door for collaboration between Revit- and non-Revit users. Improved speed and accuracy of data flow and enhanced workflow have a way of stretching those limited per-project hours and saving dollars.
