The Future of BIM Data – BIMsense

BIM is about data, the development and the management of the data. The model files that enable coordinated and collaborative design are built upon data. The geometric model objects that are displayed when viewing a model are all derived from data. The information associated with an object are also built up from data.
IFC, the model file format, is becoming a fundamental building block of data-driven BIM. IFC enables items, objects, buildings or spaces as containers for data. This data can be whatever you want it to be and more importantly, the data should be whatever provides a benefit to someone throughout the life of a facility...

Revit Add-Ons: Hanger Generator

Revit Add-Ons: Hanger Generator | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it
With Hanger Generator, you can create hangers on linear MEP elements, such as pipe, duct and Cable tray. You can define on which structural elements you want the hangers to hang, it can be on an element on the project or on an Autodesk® Revit® link. If there is nothing to hang, they will be created anyway, but with a uniform height. You can personalize things such as: Layout rules, measures, position offset, levels, on which elements they hang and internal parts.

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.

Current State of BIM in the United States

Current State of BIM in the United States | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

Over the past two years the United States has seen an increased boom of Building Information Modeling (BIM) into the Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. If you are sitting in an architectural office and not using Revit, you may have already missed the boat. Engineers have begun to catch on and are progressively adapting quicker than architects ever did. While contractors seem to have the process figured out, they are maximizing the value of BIM by testing and introducing new technology and methods into the field. Key findings from a recent Dodge Data & Analytics survey show contractors are showing an increased ROI from BIM..

How Construction Suppliers Can Contribute to the BIM Process | BIM WORLD | Scoop.it

Building Information Modeling (BIM) not only has an impact on designers, but it also impacts suppliers of construction products. Today even suppliers are required to provide digital content for a BIM model. Hilti Corporation — a global market leader in providing electronic tools as well as fastening and protection applications for construction professionals — has developed a seamless integration of their products into Autodesk AutoCAD software, Revit software, and Inventor software. The second evolution is then the provision of tools for automatic placement...

The History and Future of Revit MEP | AUGI

Back in the 1900s Autodesk wasn’t publicly traded. The average time between releases of AutoCAD® was around 24 months. When perpetual licenses were the thing, firms would often choose not to upgrade for the sake of upgrading. AutoCAD was and is completely backwards compatible, so firms could remain on a known solid version like 14 (not 2014, just 14), while others could move on, exploring productivity enhancements such as Scroll to Zoom and the Sheet Set Manager. The point is, often it took a major enhancement to shake the money loose for an upgrade. It’s wasn’t just the cost of the software, but the time and effort to manage the upgrade and bring any customization forward.

Revit Collaboration Across Continents

Throughout the world we’re seeing a trend toward the adoption of BIM—Building Information Modeling—across the architecture, engineering and construction [AEC] industries, as more companies respond to growing requirements for BIM. Also driving BIM adoption is the realization that a BIM workflow offers benefits in better project team collaboration. As a result, AEC firms are investing in technology to share models more efficiently. To date in the world of BIM, the focus has been primarily on the ‘M’ – or modeling part of BIM. But now we are rapidly shifting to the ‘I’ which is information – that is enabling project teams to work in ways never before possible. With Autodesk Collaboration for Revit, Beca – one of Asia Pacific’s leading professional consultancies connected workers across six time zones, adding hours to its workday.

Designing Stanton Territorial Hospital: BIM from an Architect's Perspective

Kasian Architecture is designing the new Stanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife, NWT. The $300 million P3 project will see a new hospital built in the area of the current hospital — the square footage is expected to almost double in size to 280,000 square feet. The new facility will feature both outpatient and inpatient services. As a new architectural landmark set in the heart of Yellowknife, with prominent visibility from Frame Lake, this point of pride for the community was primarily driven by clinical planning and the natural topography and contours of the site, blending itself into the landscape and local culture.

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...
