Ideate Explorer November 2018 Update

From the Ideate Software website:

What's New in Ideate Explorer for Revit

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

Warnings Improvements

Ideate Explorer was significantly enhanced in May 2018 to include Warnings data. Learn how to Explore Revit Warnings with Ideate Explorer.

In the October 2018 release we have made a number of improvements to better support warnings management:

Read Warnings On-Demand

Per customer feedback, this version has a new option that forestalls the gathering of the warnings data to improve performance for large project files. When this option is selected, the warnings data is only gathered if/when the Warnings tab is active.

This new option can be accessed through the Settings dialog, as shown below.

Set a Warnings Threshold

Based on customer feedback, this version includes the option to set an alert on the main page of Ideate Explorer when a certain threshold is exceeded. Set the threshold value from the Settings>Manage option.

Edit Warning Rankings

From the Settings menu, you can now access the Mange option to edit the Warning Rankings data as shown below. You can search for specific warnings and multi-select to edit multiple warnings at once. Use the Export button to save this data for re-use in other projects.

Improved Querying

Ideate Query is a powerful tool found within Ideate Explorer that lets you dig deeper into the Revit model.  BIM Managers and production staff alike will find the Query tool an invaluable way to make complex selection sets or to audit the model. Improvements to Ideate Query in this release include:
  • Select Groups based on a Room/Space location
  • Select Annotative elements that are "IsHidden" in a view
  • Select Structural Columns by their Column Style, or Base/Top Cut Styles

GDPR Compliance
