Different BIMs for different Purposes

Different BIMs for different Purposes | BIM | Scoop.it

How does BIM work, like really work, in the real world?

There are a proliferation of diagrams with arrows and graphics invariably arranged in a circle, or as a seamless flow.

 

But none of these are explanations of how BIM actually works, they are blueprints of how the authors think BIM should work.
It is an attempt to promote the myth that "BIM is about process, not technology", so that you will use the standard, guide, paid advice or academic career being pushed.

BIM does involve some new and different processes, but try doing it without technology. It would go from being a highly efficient process to one that involves an enormous amount of  work and time that is error prone and tedious. Basically the benefits would evaporate...

Clash Sphere Generator Add-in for Revit

Clash Sphere Generator Add-in for Revit | BIM | Scoop.it

From the BIM One website...

IMPORT CLASHES FROM NAVISWORK TO REVIT

The clash sphere generator is a tool by BIM One that helps project coordinators to communicate clashes location more efficiently to the design team.

Once the report is exported by Autodesk Navisworks® in XML format, the tool is able to read locations and create clash spheres in the building information model. Each sphere is identified by an identification number stored in the report which makes it easier to track and solve using Revit schedules.

Besides information about selected objects, the clash sphere generator gives you an ability to store information about issue status and the team member assigned to solve it. Processed issues can be marked ‘completed’ and comments can be added, which means that only active issues and not the entire BIM model need to be communicated between team members. This capability enables a powerful and open collaboration workflow between all parties during the design and building process.

AUGIWorld October 2014 Issue Released!

If we polled AUGI members about how many use an Autodesk product in its fresh-out-of-the-box state, the result is likely null. Truth is, the beauty of AutoCAD and other Autodesk products is that they are so very customizable, and users happily set themselves to this task.

 

n October 2014 AUGIWorld, our authors provide some great advice for customizing a variety of Autodesk products.

For example, Adam Muñoz and Kaushal Diwan team up to deliver some best practices for customizing Revit Structure in"Help Me, Help You."

For those with a longing to be head of state, Louisa Holland shows how to use Content Packs to do many things, including create your own country if you so desire - check out her article,"Viva La Revolution!"

And in "Understanding the CUI" Melinda Heavrin gets down to the basics of the Customize User Interface in AutoCAD Architecture.

There is a lot more on customizing Autodesk products, along withAUGIWorld's usual array of articles on other topics.

Also in the October 2014 AUGIWorld...Breaking the Rules - Martijn de Riet introduces you to BIMiTs Content Admin Kit, which he finds full of exciting possibilities for Revit users.

The ABCs of MEP Constructing Modeling, Part 1 - Matt Stachoni opines that the process of construction modeling is not to be underestimated in terms of time, effort, expertise required, and expense. With that in mind, he offers a two-part series on getting started with Trade Contractor Modeling (TCM) with a focus on the MEP trades.

How Small Firms Should Prepare for the BIM 2016 Mandate - This month's CASE/HP collaboration shows how the UK's initiative to mandate "fully collaborative 3d BIM [Building Information Modeling] by 2016" provides lessons for us all.

Lighting Design and Analysis in Revit - Dan Stine explores the capabilities of ElumTools, a Revit add-in developed by Lighting Analysts.

Design, Coordinate, Fabricate - Kenneth Eastman provides real-world examples of a BIM workflow.

How to Effectively Use Associative Dimensions - Tips guru Michael Beall steps you through working with dimensions in AutoCAD.

Sustainable FLOATING Cities Designed for a Post-Apocalyptic World

Sustainable FLOATING Cities Designed for a Post-Apocalyptic World | BIM | Scoop.it

Global climate change and predictions of large floods and natural disasters are leading to the design of self-sustaining floating cities.

Inspired by biblical character of Noah, Serbian designers Aleksandar Joksimovic and Jelena Nikolic have created Noah’s Ark, a sustainable floating city capable of preserving life on earth in the event of a massive natural disaster.


TheNoah’s Ark project features a series of terraced rings with deep underwater towers that act as ballasts to increase stability. The innovative project would support life on terraced fields, provide ample space for food growing, collect rainwater and generate its own power through natural energy sources such as solar, wind and wave energy, which are easily captured at sea.

Revit Stair Landings - Part 2: Modification

Revit Stair Landings - Part 2: Modification | BIM | Scoop.it

Stair landing components can be modified individually but they interact with run components in unexpected ways, so you need to learn the rules as it is not always intuitive. If stair landings have been created by the new sketch method or have been “converted”, then the interaction with runs is more limited.

To modify a landing component you generally need to be in edit stair mode. The exception to this is changing landing properties, which can be accessed by tab-selecting the landing without editing the stair.  There are various methods to modify a landing, each with their own benefits.  There are also some subtle differences between landings in v2013 and v2014 (and later), to be described further on: .....

When discussing the advanced applications that Autodesk® Revit® offers, the answers are varied.  When discussing which advanced applications are important, the answers are equally varied.  Each discipline has its own idea of which applications are more advanced—and more important—than others.  Whatever discipline we work in, all can agree that Revit offers more capabilities, to more disciplines, on a broader scale … than any other software in the world. Regardless of discipline, Revit has something to offer—whether in Architecture, Engineering, Mechanical, Conceptual Modeling, and soon, Structural Steel Detailing....

Revit A Real Team Player | AUGI

Revit A Real Team Player | AUGI | BIM | Scoop.it

I have always been good as a standalone Revit operator, but in a team setting this took some time to master. In the beginning I had to figure out which direction I wanted to take. I fell back on the knowledge I picked up working at old firms. I had to start to figure out how my old firms did it and became good at what they did. A few firms I worked at used the "CAD and manpower idea"; Throw 10 Just AutoCAD guys at one project have a few project managers and/or a few red liners to get the job done. This works ok but the issue was always coordination and man-hours are not cheap. They spent more time in coordination mode then I think drafting mode which in turn cost the project dearly in my opinion. Not to mention the personal conflicts that ever large manpower firm has. I knew that was not the road for me. If I was to take off on my own I would not go down this road. I need to find another solution to make a smaller leaner practice work and be competitive....
