Tip for Autodesk Revit: Use Ideate BIMLink to Group Scheduled Walls by Levels

We've been receiving this question from our contractor customers.
Q: I am scheduling walls in Autodesk Revit and need to group by levels. Level is not available in parameter list. Is there a method for this?

A: We deal with this type of issue by using Ideate BIMLink to dump the value for the Base Constraint Elevation into a Project Parameter so that it can be sued for sorting and filtering a more detailed takeoff. Lots of information about top and bottom constraints, along with wall orientation and some other wall-based fields are exposed through using Ideate BIMLink.

Imagine the speed and accuracy you'll gain by using Ideate BIMLink to sort and filter data!
