IMAGINiT Technologies launched IMAGINiT Clarity 2024 offering new features and refined task automation processes to significantly reduce time spent on manual, low-value tasks. Increased workflow efficiencies and enhanced task reliability, usability and integration give BIM Coordinators greater ability to automate processes across projects, potentially saving more than 200 hours per project annually.
“Whether for a start-up or an Engineering News Record Top 100 architectural firm, we’ve always focused on translating customer feedback from webinars, implementations and support requests into features that solve the most common challenges,” says Bill Zavadil, president and chief operating officer, IMAGINiT Technologies. “Our Clarity suite of products help increase productivity because it frees up time by automating manual, time-consuming tasks and streamlining administrative processes. This gives teams time to collaborate on higher value design work. This is evidenced by the fact that Clarity’s suite of tools recently surpassed 2 million hours saved on projects across our customer base since its introduction in 2012.”
IMAGINiT Clarity 2024 is compatible with Autodesk Revit 2024 and fully supports versions of Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Revit Server back to 2020 with limited support available for Autodesk Revit 2019. With Clarity 2024, AEC firms, their BIM Coordinators and their partners and customers will experience innovative new features designed to improve workflows and increase team efficiencies. These features include:
Clarity 2024 now delivers enhanced metadata support for both Autodesk Construction Cloud and Autodesk BIM 360. New time-saving features include web-based triggers that automatically initiate tasks upon specific changes in Autodesk Construction Cloud and Autodesk BIM 360 projects. Clarity also makes it easy to publish existing Revit metadata into Autodesk Construction Cloud and BIM 360, seamlessly integrating all available metadata into the model.
For firms adopting ISO 19650 building information management principles, Clarity enables users to incorporate the latest workflows by leveraging file metadata, ensuring team members utilize documents as intended.
Unified Sync Improvements
Clarity 2024 introduces a number of features supporting Unified Sync improvements across teams and external partners.
The new Unified Sync Task centralizes the file syncing process, replacing multiple steps and tools with one global, consistent dropdown menu that integrates data between platforms. This simplifies and accelerates the process by eliminating the need for different tools or intermediate data saving when synchronizing across platforms. Unified Sync Task now includes support for Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Egnyte in addition to the long list of already supported tools including Autodesk Construction Cloud, Autodesk BIM360, Network Folder, ProjectWise, Procore, and Microsoft Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint.
Folder Name Mapping, another customer-driven feature, enables seamless folder synchronization or backups between cloud services, even when teams use different folder structures. Users simply document the differences using the intuitive wizard and then Clarity ensures the correct mapping moving forwards.
Additional Integration Enhancements
Teams using Autodesk Desktop Connector version 16 are limited to 40 active projects per machine, but Clarity 2024 now continuously evaluates the cue of tasks that require processing and then automatically and dynamically turns projects on or off to enable all necessary tasks to be processed each day. Operating 24/7, Clarity cycles through projects, ensuring the maximum number of 40 projects per machine is never exceeded while seamlessly managing tasks on each server to complete all necessary work.
