Ideate Dashboard for Autodesk BIM 360 Launched

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Sep 16, 2020 – Ideate Software, a veteran Autodesk AEC industry partner, announces the launch of Ideate Dashboard for Autodesk BIM 360, a data visualization service that uses proprietary technology to provide information related to Revit warnings within the Autodesk BIM 360 environment. Autodesk’s BIM 360 software connects project teams and data from design through construction. Ideate Dashboard pulls design information from Revit models stored within BIM 360 projects in order to identify and flag design warnings, so teams can immediately address the issues, reducing mistakes and rework and keeping projects on time and within budget.

“We created this cloud-based application to support the design and construction community as it increases its use of Autodesk BIM 360 for collaboration,” said David Haynes, director, Ideate Software. “BIM 360 users had to open each individual Revit project to manage Revit warnings. With Ideate Dashboard for Autodesk BIM 360, users get real-time information without leaving BIM 360, saving time and enhancing their ability to maintain Revit model health.”

Ideate Dashboard benefits:

  • Project executives who need instant access to the status of all projects in their portfolio
  • BIM and VDC managers who need to understand and address any potential design issues in Revit models
  • Revit users who need to see where their project stands at a particular moment

The Ideate Dashboard cards shown on the BIM 360 Dashboard home page, powered by the technology behind the Revit model browser Ideate Explorer, display valuable model health information, including:

  • Relevant, curated, actionable data on Revit warnings:
    • Revit warnings information for all BIM 360 Revit files through a key performance indicator (KPI)
    • A stacked ranking of the top five design files with the most issues identified

“Quality construction relies on precise and accurate design files,” said James Cook, head of integrations, Autodesk Construction Solutions. “Design and construction teams must continuously collaborate throughout projects to ensure mistakes are not made during on-site building. Our integration with Ideate will help customers stay ahead of design and construction issues so they are able to deliver quality construction more easily.” Like all Ideate Software applications, Ideate Dashboard for Autodesk BIM 360 is compatible with Revit version 2018 through Revit version 2021.
