Model Health Issues: Optimize, Automate, Realize

I have finalized a toolkit using Power BI dashboards and the ability to visualize warnings to analyze Revit model issues. This has been an long time issue for a lot of us on knowing which models are having health issues. What do I mean by that, a big one is excessive amount of warnings in the model which can lead to all kinds of ugly issues. This happens to all disciplines; Architecture, Structural, and MEP.

These are just some of the items we should be keeping track of in every Revit model that we work with.

In the past this has been virtually impossible to know, let alone see trends, on when one of our project models has gone rogue. Blasting off the rails and into the ditch based on one or multiple categories that I mentioned above.

So with these dashboards we finally know which models…
