WRNS Studio and Ideate Software “We’ve been working with Ideate Software for years,” said Jason Halaby, Architect & BIM Manager, WRNS Studio. “Each one of their products tackles specific challenges we face with Revit software. They help us save time with a variety of model tasks, freeing up time for our designers to do what they do best, innovate and design. Ideate Software products also have a critical function in our model quality control process, giving us more control of our data in a way that Revit out-of-the-box cannot.” Here are examples of how WRNS uses Ideate Software tools: Ideate StyleManager “Ideate StyleManager is our go-to tool for model cleanup at project milestones. Revit does not provide easy access and manipulation of certain classes of elements such as LineStyles, Object Styles, Filters, etc. With Ideate StyleManager, we can find unused or duplicate styles, and merge or delete them – this provides a level of model cleanup that was not previously possible.” Ideate BIMLink “Increasingly our model data is becoming a part of our deliverables. Ideate BIMLink gives us an easy way to manipulate model data efficiently in Excel and bring it back to Revit. Door schedules, Finish schedules, Sheet indexes, Type management schedules are commonly edited with Ideate BIMLink at WRNS.” Ideate Explorer “Without Ideate Explorer, Revit is not a fully functional BIM authoring platform. WRNS relies on Ideate Explorer’s detailed selection filtering, query tools, and warning manager for many of our model management tasks, which include finding In-Place families, auditing worksets, filtering selections by type, finding and resolving warnings, and generally providing a more transparent window into the model database.” IdeateApps “We use Ideate ReNumber extensively to number rooms, doors, parking stalls, and other elements. Ideate SmartDelete is critical to our workflow during documentation phase because it helps us determine where model changes will impact documentation views. Ideate X-Ray is great for troubleshooting those tricky visibility issues. And Ideate SheetManager is a great alternative to the Revit Project Browser for finding and manipulating views and sheets.” Shaping the Future In addition to using Ideate Software tools, Jason takes an active role in their development. “Ideate Software encourages its customers to provide a lot of feedback,” said Jason. “Through formal surveys and informal conversations, I tell them what’s working, explain new Revit challenges my team is facing, and discuss new functionalities we’d like to see. They are very responsive to my feature requests and beta feedback, often turning around improvements surprisingly quickly.” Read the full story at: https://ideatesoftware.com/about/customer-success/spotlight-on-wrns-studio-2
