Award-winning AECO Companies use Ideate Sticky to Handle Non-BIM Data with Ease

Ideate Software, a veteran Autodesk Developer Network member, is pleased to be associated with companies recognized for excellence.

“As a developer of software that helps companies that design, build and operate built environments focus on their core strengths, we love to learn of their successes,” said Glynnis Patterson, Director of Software Development.

“BIM professionals who are passionate about integrating innovation into design, enhancing communities, and collaborating across disciplines work countless hours on everything from the big picture to tiny details. It is both humbling and energizing to know that our products eliminate some of the drudgery.”

One Ideate Software product used by award-winning companies is Ideate Sticky, which enhances cross-team workflows by elegantly connecting non-BIM data from an Excel file into a Revit project.

“The lack of a text editor in Autodesk® Revit® software makes organizing and formatting non-BIM data frustrating and time consuming,” said Glynnis. “Ideate Sticky solves this by enabling users to edit data in Excel and ‘stick’ spreadsheets on Revit files.”

Here are some quotes about Ideate Sticky from companies that have won awards for innovation, sustainability, historic preservation, tenant improvements and even the “coolest office.”

    “Ideate Sticky enhances collaboration by streamlining the process of disseminating non-BIM data. What used to be a tedious, time-consuming task is now done in just minutes.”

  • Eppstein Uhen Architects
    “Equipment planners will develop a list by room that owners want on the architectural drawings. To recreate this schedule in Revit would mean modeling the equipment and creating an element schedule. Ideate Sticky allows us to use the consultant list with minimal editing and a few minutes of effort.”
    ~Phyllis Robbins, Eppstein Uhen Architects

  • Mead & Hunt
    “Ideate Sticky makes a picture of the Excel file so you can view it phenomenally quickly. It seems transparent to its users, and most importantly, it is trusted by users.”
    ~Dan Dankert, Mead & Hunt
