ViewIT – Optimized View Navigation

From the Autodesk App Store:

BIM Optimized ViewIT app for Autodesk® Revit® is a configurable, multi-functional application providing an optimized system for accessing your views and sheets through a variety of tools designed specifically to streamline model navigation. The ViewIT app helps eliminate the inefficiency of task-switching and scrolling through large projects in the Project Browser.

The Sheet Number function provides an interface that allows the user to key in and filter for specific sheet numbers. The Sheet Contains function provides an interface that allows the user to key in and filter for specific values in the Sheet Number & Name, again eliminating the inefficiency of scrolling through large projects in the Project Browser.

ViewIT provides several functions for expanding your capabilities when accessing your views. The Tile Checked Views function provides the ability to open and tile multiple views in a fraction of the time it currently takes. The Close Views function allows the user to close all but the active view.

In addition to the production workflow, ViewIT can be used for collaboration, presentations, and model reviews. Streamline the modeling process, lower the cost of production, accelerate team huddles during design iterations, and enable confidence during impromptu presentations.

When ViewIT is set up to match your workflow, you can expect to:
  • Produce More – Do more by recovering your most valuable asset – TIME.  By eliminating the continuous searches and scrolling for views and information you inherently can compress time – do more in less time.
  • Focus Better – When you eliminate the activity of searching for information you also eliminate costly mental task-switching that occurs with great frequency. Leave searching for cross-word puzzles, and metal detectors not BIM. Focus on your design.
  • Stress Less – It's said that 10-20% of our work week is spent finding and searching for information – email, servers, file drawers, view names. There is increasing frustration that mounts throughout a day/week by not finding the Right Information at the Right Time. Get what you need, when you need it, and stress less.
