SmartBIM – BIM + Revit Solutions from Ideate, Inc.

Ideate, Inc. proudly presents SMARTBIM® Library from industry partner SMARTBIM:

SMARTBIM Library is a Revit family content management tool that provides a simple way to organize, find, and use Revit families.

If you are using Autodesk® Revit,® you have probably experienced the frustration of trying to manage Revit Families saved to folders in your file system. It’s difficult to know how to use your families when the file name is the only means for understanding the product or assembly that the family represents. From a file name you cannot tell how it should be used in the project without actually loading it into Revit.
  • Streamlines design workflow
  • Simplifies storage, organization and location of Revit objects including user’s existing content
  • Facilitates the generation of catalogs from Revit objects
  • Enables manufacturers, architects, engineers and building owners to easily share catalogs of objects
SMARTBIM Library is a distribution channel for SMARTBIM content (the high quality families we develop and provide to you) AND a management tool for your families, all located in one organized system. Using SMARTBIM Library you will find families fast and simply drag-n-drop them into your Revit project. This is the tool that enables you to manage families, publish and distribute family Catalogs that represent the standard-of-practice for your firm, improve the re-use of families across projects, and decrease project risk.

Firms are wasting hundreds of hours searching for and creating Revit content – and time IS money. In fact, two different project teams may be spending time creating the same type of object right now because there is not a central repository.
