From the Ideate Software website:

What's New with Ideate BIMLink for Revit

The latest improvements to Ideate BIMLink include features that are added to our 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 versions. See below for a summary of some of new features in the November 2018 release or check out our YouTube What's New playlist.

General Improvements

Easier to Use

Editing just got a lot easier with Ideate BIMLink. In this version we have added the ability to edit the data directly within Ideate BIMLink, skipping the requirement to export first to Excel.

GDPR Compliance

This release contains changes to our standalone and trial activation processes to comply with the EU Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our network licensing has always existed behind your firewall and has therefore always met this criteria.

Quality Control Enhancements

We have added new properties and data categories to support enhanced workflows related to Quality Control.
  • - Use this data to audit and cleanup 2D elements that should not have been hidden.
  • - Review and edit only those object styles with custom subcategories.

Project Standards

We have added new properties and data categories to support enhanced workflows related to Project Standards.
  • - Edit the line color, line weight, and material of project-based styles. Line pattern is accessible only in versions 2018 and forward.

Managing Revision Data

Keeping track of revision and issuance data is easy with Ideate BIMLink. In this version we've added the ability to edit the Revision Sequence of a Revision Cloud.
Check on the new link called "".

You can also use Ideate BIMLink to:
  • Create new revision sequences.
  • Edit the value for Revisions on Sheets
  • Create a document issuance record.
  • Compare and edit revision data across linked files.

Fixes and Minor Improvements

In this release we have modified the export data to better support our German customers and their unique number format requirements. We have also improved our alpha-numeric sorting rules to better match the default Excel sorting behavior.

Cable Tray elements have been added to the multi-category link options and Legend Component elements are now available as a new link category.
