San Francisco, CA, 1/26/2015 – Ideate Software, a veteran Autodesk Developer Network member, announced today that updates are available for Ideate Sticky for Autodesk Revit versions 2014, 2015 and 2016. Ideate Sticky imports and synchronizes Microsoft Excel file content into the Revit project environment. The updates to Ideate Sticky for Revit include significant enhancements and improvements.
In response to a top customer support request, visual fidelity has been improved by added support for Line Style Mapping. “Ideate Sticky user feedback was integral in the development of the features in this update,” says Glynnis Patterson, Ideate Director of Software Development. “We designed this to allow end-user control of the assigned line styles, as well as out-of-the-box default values to get our customers up and running with great results.”
Other improvements in this release of Ideate Sticky include:
- Added support for hidden rows and columns within your Revit project
- Designers and engineers can now use any Named Region as a way of defining a Sticky, an easy method for splitting a long Excel worksheet into separate 'pages'
- Versions 2015 and forward now support inclusions of an image, such as a company logo, within the header
Richard Taylor, Ideate Software Technical Evangelist says, “The ability to support embedded graphic images in the Microsoft Excel schedule, plus the ability to support many Excel line styles, will greatly enhance the graphic fidelity of the Sticky Schedule within the Revit environment, reducing the necessity for additional schedule editing. Customers can easily link the Excel Schedule into Revit knowing that the proper formatting of fonts, graphic images, line styles, hidden rows and columns, and merged cells, will be handled by Ideate Sticky effortlessly and elegantly.”
He adds, “No matter your discipline, Ideate Sticky allows you to extend the project team by providing the ability to link non-BIM Excel data directly into the Revit project.”
Bob Palioca, President, Ideate Software says, “Ideate Software is always listening and deeply involved in how are customers are using our Ideate Software solutions. The latest release of Ideate Sticky reflects that commitment to our customers.”
To ensure consistent graphic results, all Ideate Sticky end-users should be updated at the same time.
