SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 4, 2019 – Modulus Consulting helps project teams leverage the power of building information modeling (BIM) by providing services from BIM implementation mentoring to architecture, engineering, and construction design modeling; pre-construction coordination; and construction fabrication modeling. To save time and increase the accuracy of its models, Modulus uses Ideate BIMLink, Ideate Explorer, and IdeateApps. Ideate Software developed these Autodesk Revit applications to streamline workflows in the architecture, engineering, construction, and owner (AECO) community.
Victor Castillo, a BIM product manager at Modulus said, “I got hooked on Ideate BIMLink 10 years ago when I was at a global architecture firm. When I joined Modulus, I recommended that we get the software.” Modulus Consulting now also uses Ideate Explorer and IdeateApps:
- Ideate Explorer: Victor encourages his team to leave Ideate Explorer open, so it’s readily available to use for even rudimentary tasks like selecting hidden objects instead of visually looking for them. The team also uses Ideate Explorer to select all linked Revit models to verify they’re pinned or quickly get a sense of how many family types or instances are in the model.
- Ideate BIMLink: Where Ideate Explorer lets Modulus manage or manipulate small groups of elements, Ideate BIMLink lets them manage the model content on a greater scale. For instance, they use it to merge facilities management data in and out of project parameters.
- IdeateApps SmartDelete: Although designed to warn users of elements that will be deleted with a selection, Modulus uses it to help locate any views that have annotations attached to an object before moving it, so they can make sure tags and dimensions on all views still read cleanly.
- IdeateApps Clone: Modulus uses Clone to automate the process of duplicating sheets, saving time and reducing the chance of errors.
“In 2015, Modulus Consulting and Ideate Software entered into partnership to provide complementary services to the AECO community,” said Bob Palioca, president, Ideate Software. “That Modulus uses our applications and recommends them to their clients is a true testament of their trust in us.”
