Revit adaptive component tutorials

Revit adaptive component tutorials | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

If you have been playing around in Revit 2013 and trying to learn the new features, you may have heard of, or come accross adaptive components. Adaptive points and Adaptive components can be used to make elements which are adaptive, or elements which can move. An example could be a panel system on a wall which can be modified and reshaped according to the points you set. The use of repeating and dividing is another feature which is useful when modeling complex geometry in Revit. Reporting parameters can be used to report and react to certain situations, e.g. a panel which opens and closes depending on the proximity of the sun......

GRAPHISOFT's BIM 2017 North America User Conference

GRAPHISOFT's BIM 2017 North America User Conference | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend GRAPHISOFT’s biennial conference focused on users of its ARCHICAD BIM application and related solutions such as BIMx and BIMcloud. This year’s event was held in Las Vegas and provided a learning and networking opportunity for GRAPHISOFT’s users in North America. The company is headquartered in Hungary, Budapest, where it was founded, and it is owned by the Germany-based Nemetschek AG, so it already has a local presence in Europe and will be hosting a similar conference in Japan in a couple of months for its customer base in Asia and Australia. I found the North American conference last week very interesting and informative, with keynote presentations by industry leaders on much broader issues than technology alone, ARCHICAD-focused sessions from power users and experts, as well as updates from GRAPHISOFT, including a sneak peek at some exciting new features in the upcoming version of ARCHICAD.

InfraWorks Overview for Beginners

InfraWorks Overview for Beginners | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it
When I talk about “BIM”, most people immediately think of Buildings (the “B” in ‘BIM’). But BIM is so much more than just buildings. It also includes the surrounding site and infrastructure that help support a building. And for that, there’s Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D which is a great tool for creating a highly detailed design of the site grading, roadways, drainage and utility systems. But what about the early stages of a project when you’re dealing more with conceptual designs? That’s where Autodesk InfraWorks 360 has a leg up on AutoCAD Civil 3D. InfraWorks 360’s intuitive and sleek interface allows you to focus on what really matters – the design.

Selected Projects from Bentley's 2016 Be Inspired Awards

Selected Projects from Bentley's 2016 Be Inspired Awards | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it
Towards the end of last year, we looked at the main developments and updates from Bentley at its annual Year in Infrastructure (YII) conference and some infrastructure projects from China, Finland, Denmark, and the US that were implemented using Bentley solutions, highlighting their scope and range.
Many more implementation examples were showcased as part of Bentley’s annual “Be Inspired” awards, a mainstay of the YII conferences. The call for submissions for these awards goes out in the summer, and from among the many entries in different categories that are submitted, three are chosen as the finalists in each category by a non-Bentley jury comprised of experts in that field. These finalists are invited to present at the YII conference and a winner is chosen, with the awards then being presented in an Oscar-like gala during one of the evenings of the conference.

How to get improved data from DGN’s from AECOsim into Navisworks

How to get improved data from DGN’s from AECOsim into Navisworks | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

Navisworks has long been a place to aggregate models and data into one place for advanced design review and clash detection. One of the key ways to get value from Navisworks is ensuring as many object properties are included in the model as possible.  This blog explains the process to include additional properties from Bentley AECOsim in Navisworks thanks to our ANZ consulting team, special thanks to Quoc Pham for putting this together.

Navisworks supports Bentley AECOsim .DGN file format. Not all the AECOsim properties are available through the standard translation, by using DataTools you can link the metadata to the model...

Revit 2017.1 & Dynamo Tutorial – Setting All Rebar Visible and Solid in View

Revit 2017.1 & Dynamo Tutorial – Setting All Rebar Visible and Solid in View | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

As many of you will already know, controlling the visibility of reinforcement within Revit can be challenging and time consuming as each new rebar modelled needs to have the visibility, for example, you create a new range of rebar and then are required to click ‘View Visibility States’ and then select the views that you wish to see the rebar unobscured and ‘as solid’.

AEC Technology Highlights and Trends -- From 2016 to 2017

AEC Technology Highlights and Trends -- From 2016 to 2017 | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it
The start of a new year is a great time to take stock of different aspects of our lives, both on the personal and professional fronts, and for those of us in the business of developing, implementing, and studying AEC technology, it is fascinating to look back at what has been accomplished so far and what we can look forward to in the months to come. What were the main highlights of 2016? Were there some anticipated developments that did not pan out? What is the “state-of-the-art” of AEC technology at the moment? What’s “hot” going forward? What is the state of BIM? How are the leading vendors in the field doing on technology development? In general, is technology living up to its promise or not really? Are we past the “heady” days of technological breakthroughs in the AEC industry and have to now concentrate on the difficult, relatively unexciting, and often mundane, challenge of implementing these technologies?

Revit Add-Ons: Ventilated Facades

Revit Add-Ons: Ventilated Facades | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it
By putting a new spin on some existing technology, we can make things which had earlier seemed out of reach. That’s certainly the case with using ventilated facades to cover the exterior of new or renovated building.
Both functional and aesthetic, the versatility of ventilated facades allows for a variety of eye-catching looks that come with lots of practical advantages like thermal and sound insulation, rain protection, thermal expansion, and fire safety.
A ventilated facade is designed so that panels – often made of technical ceramic or porcelain – cover a building’s exterior, leaving a space for air to flow between the structural wall and the facade. This buffer layer creates a chimney effect all around the building, giving rise to the aforementioned benefits.
Only problem is, there has been no efficient way of modelling ventilated facades in Revit.
Until now, that is.

BIM adoption by public facility agencies: impacts on occupant value

Many governments have begun to demand that large public facility agencies adopt and implement building information modelling (BIM) in their business processes. Some have published BIM guides. Most of these are technical specifications that are useful at the project level, but they provide no support for the organization-level adoption effort. On the basis of a literature review, action research and case studies of five large UK government facility agencies, a BIM adoption impact map (BIM AIM) is proposed. It describes a set of possible relationships between the actions taken by public facility agencies, the intermediate outcomes of their actions and the eventual achievement of value for the occupants of the facilities they build. BIM AIM can be used by public facility agencies with a wide variety of construction project types to analyse and visualize the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in their BIM adoption efforts, potentially enabling them to focus on social impacts and outcomes rather than on the technological or management actions that intermediate stakeholders promote...

Putting the “I” in BIM: How to Work with the Information Needed for a Building Information Model

Putting the “I” in BIM: How to Work with the Information Needed for a Building Information Model | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it
The “I” in BIM stands for the information you put into the model, not the appearance of a construction documents set. We have all heard the terms LOD (Level of Detail), BIM (Building Information Modeling), and BIM Execution Plan (what is the information needed, how to model that information, where the information is located), but how do they all affect each other when modeling? How do we ensure we are not over- or under-modeling on each project? I will provide a few tips for working with the information needed for a Building Information model.

From the CADD Microsystems blog:

Support for Linked Models in COBie Extension For Revit 3.0 The Autodesk COBie Extension for Revit just dropped a new version and it has a couple of brand new features that users have been asking about for some time.
First and foremost, the extension will now export COBie information from linked models. Previous versions would only pull out data from the active model and then you would have to add the data from the second model in there on a different export. Not a huge hassle, but this makes the process tons easier.

How to succeed in implementing (BIM) process Part 1

How to succeed in implementing (BIM) process Part 1 | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

When speaking with project managers I often hear their frustration in having to not being able to fully complete the documentation often required as part of a formal process, often a Quality Control process. I often hear that we have the “right approach” but “not the budget” when trying to incorporate Quality Control strategies into their production process. Managers are pressed to produce deliverables on a tight budget within a compressed timeframe, time spent filling out documentation associated to a formal process are often seen as an inconvenience, a low priority, or even a waste of time. The pressure of having to deliver product, along with the challenges of inconsistency in team members and design changes outweigh the perceived need to fill out forms or follow a process they feel is not necessary.
