In April 2018, Ideate merged its Autodesk businesses with IMAGINiT Technologies, resulting in one company offering many solutions to their combined customers. As a result of that combination, this Ideate class, which covers the fundamentals of creating and testing parametric content within Revit, is being reformatted to align with the corresponding IMAGINiT class. We will update this page soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email us.
