SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 8, 2018 – Ideate Software, a veteran Autodesk developer network member, has launched Ideate ViewCreator, an application that improves control, quality, and the efficiency of Revit model View creation. With it, users can:
- Create multiple Revit views at the same time based on smart rules
- Create copies of plans from one level to many levels
- Ensure view properties, templates, and naming standards are used
“ViewCreator solves a problem experienced by both large and small companies that use Revit software,” said Ideate Software director of software development, Glynnis Patterson. “Until now, they haven’t been able to batch-create multiple Revit views while complying with company-established BIM standards. ViewCreator solves this problem and perfectly complements our other Sheet and View tools: Sheet Manager, Clone, and Align. When used together, these tools support a high degree of automation and consistency for Revit sheet and view management.”

Ideate ViewCreator and the other Sheet and View tools are included in IdeateApps, a collection of applications that simplifies the activities daily Revit users perform most often. Existing customers should download the updated version to automatically get access to this new tool within IdeateApps versions 2016, 2017, or 2018. Interested Revit users can get a free trial of the entire toolset by visiting the Ideate Software website.
“As building information modeling continues to transform the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, we continue to develop tools that help project teams streamline Revit activities, increase productivity, and enhance model accuracy. Ideate ViewCreator is our latest tool to do this, and we are certain that people will experience its power as soon as they start to use it,” said Ideate Software president, Bob Palioca.
