Announcing BIMlink - Direct connectivity between Excel and Revit #AU2010 #BIM #Revit

Power the “I” in BIM
Ideate BIMLink lets you pull data from an Autodesk® Revit® file into user-friendly Microsoft® Excel® and push Excel data into Revit with equal ease. This indispensible tool works with Revit Extension Manager and gives you unprecedented access to Revit data – the I – in Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Ideate BIMLink was developed specifically for the Revit community by Ideate, Inc. and complements Revit® Architecture 2011, Revit®MEP 2011 and Revit® Structure 2011.

Pull Data Out
Use Ideate BIMLink to get more detailed information about your Revit projects. Ideate BIMLink gives you access to Design Option and Phasing information as well as additional parameters such as Top and Bottom Constraints and Unconnected Height for Wall object and Base and Top Level elevation values for Columns. Use this data externally with cost estimating, takeoff, or analysis tools. The link definition can be saved for re-use in subsequent projects.
Work the Data, and Push it Back
Ideate BIMLink lets you access data that Revit hides, including phase and design option data. Detailed access to room, space and zones data is at your fingertips. Plus, when you use Ideate BIMLink to bring Revit data into Excel, you can task Excel with calculating volumes of data and populating quantities of fields – impractical operations in Revit. You can push calculated data such as occupancy loads, duct and pipe lengths, or beam cut lengths, into your tags with astounding ease.
The Fast,
Accurate, Easy Way
For Quality Control purposes, Ideate BIMLink lets you standardize measurements, naming conventions and parameter values in the data via Excel then quickly push processed data back into the Revit model. You can clean up your templates by reviewing all parameter values (Type Name and Type Mark, as one example) even while no instances exist. Automated Excel capabilities – fast, accurate and easy – are a time and error saver when compared with manual editing within Revit. And for locating information, you can gather data on even hard to find fields such as Wall Orientation or Unconnected Wall Height.
