Ideate Explorer for Autodesk® Revit® gives you an easy, intuitive and profound way to search, filter, quantify and select elements in a Revit model.

General Usage Instructions

Use Ideate Explorer for Revit to audit Revit Projects or to make detailed selection sets as part of day-to-day production work. Select the scope of objects as the Current Selection, Current View, or Entire Project then browse for items by Category, Level, Phase, Room, Space, Zone, or Workset. Add further intelligence to your selection by using a text-based search to look into family and type names. Ideate Explorer can be used to zoom to selected objects. Additionally, any items selected within Ideate Explorer will be placed into the Revit selection set upon exiting Ideate Explorer. Actions such as deleting or modifying are then processed within Revit itself.

Ideate Query is a tool within Ideate Explorer that lets you search by parameter values.

Use the Navigate tab to browse Schedules, Legends, Reports, Sheets, and Views.

Use the Warnings tab to review and manage Revit warnings.




Ideate Explorer for Revit can be uninstalled or repaired from the Control Panel. Ideate Explorer for Revit is launched from the Ideate Software Tab.
