leaDE is open for connections from outside
As an example, we show the connection to leaDE with the BIM authoring system Revit. However, any other software can also be connected via the API.
Sign in, please!
If you have not already done so, you can authenticate yourself here on the Revit site. Now you will be asked for your login data the first time you call the program. This way the system knows which rights you have in the project.
In this way, no false data gets into the system or into unauthorized hands!
Connecting the Revit project with leaDE
The Control Panel is used to initialize the project for the first time. Here, the structure created in the leaDE frontend is accessed and loaded into the project.
Important elements such as the general project structure, but also configuration elements are added. Of course, these can also be adjusted afterwards.
Map model elements from Revit and connect with the directive
One of the basic functions of leaDE is the standardization of parameters and attributes. The directive you feed in during the initialization procedure is mappedhere against the existing parameters of the Revit project.
You can individually select which parameters play a role in this process. Configurations can of course also be transferred to other projects.
Transfer the project
Everything configured? Wonderful! Now only one click is missing and the data will be transferred to leaDE.
Of course, you can also fetch changes from leaDE into Revit, provided that the direction in parameter mapping allows for this.
Edit parameters in Revit
According to the maxim We work with the guideline, the properties of the selected component are available with the leaDE data.
A change is written to the database, so it is immediately available centrally.
A control in the viewer
Here you can see our element just edited in Revit in the viewer. The change from Revit is of course also visible here.
