AUGIWorld November 2013 Issue Released!

For design professionals, learning never ends. And that's okay, because they understand that to stop learning stops them dead in their professional tracks. Luckily, right around the corner is the premier learning and training event of the year, Autodesk University. But before you get there, the November 2013 issue of AUGIWorld offers an education and training appetizer.

Curt Moreno puts the Focus on Trainers and delivers a surprising truth - many people are trainers without realizing it. In AEC Training and Education for Strategic Success, Nancy McClure demonstrates the importance of education and training while processes are evolving during a transition to BIM. Actually, every article in every issue of AUGIWorld is a learning experience - our authors, experts in their respective industries, see to that. See what inspires you in this issue.

Also in the November 2013 AUGIWorld...

Start Rigging in 3ds Max - Digital-Tutors offers a lesson in rigging in 3ds Max. Rigging is the process behind the most memorable CG characters in films, TV shows, and video games.

AutoCAD Tip - Michael Beall with a tip for making a custom ortho with the SNAPANG (snap angle) variable in AutoCAD.Quantifying Revit MEP Efficiency - Ben Pielhop offers advice to those transitioning to Revit MEP. The goal is to increase efficiency.

Navisworks Takes Off - Michael Smith dives into Navisworks catalogs and explores how to take off model quantities and items that are not modeled.

Object Linking & Embedding - Melinda Heavrin with a step by step on OLE, a method of copying or moving information from one application to another.

Finally - Fusion 360 Meets KeyShot - John Evans looks closer at the relationship between Autodesk and Luxion, which is bringing exciting rendering capabilities to Autodesk Fusion 360 by way of KeyShot.

Reporting Success - A query from a user has author Christopher Fugitt off to investigate reporting in AutoCAD Civil 3D. Here, he shares what he discovered. Also in this issue... •String Theory - Melanie Perry brings questions and answers from the AUGI Forums to the pages of AUGIWorld. Among the topics covered this month are cover sheet development in Revit, scaling an avatar in Navisworks, and tips for making an AUGI Forum post that will get responses.•

Inside Track - Lee Ambrosius looks at new software and hardware developments for Autodesk product users. In this issue, the wireless SpaceMouse, a free CAM solution for Autodesk Inventor, and the RushForth Parameter Scheduler.

Collaboration on a BIM project. Possible or Impossible?

Collaboration on a BIM project. Possible or Impossible? | BIM@Deakin | Scoop.it

Everyone that has been involved with BIM technology in one way or another, has heard the same question: Is it really possible to work with BIM in a collaborative environment? As you can guess, the answer is not based on specific software or application, but by defining a process that will work, depending on the degree of involvement of each of the participants and the degree of interoperability of the applications we use. What is the answer? Yes or no? You are right, the answer is YES. So how is implemented? Well, that's what I will try to explain in this article.....

It plays an important role on establishing high efficiency and productivity from utilizing BIM systems in day to day operations. But, you'll find some challenges on several fronts, including instruction, mentoring and integration of workflows with internal standards. This system will permit clientele to systematically train Construction Model pros and allow them to integrate work processes. Therefore, enhancing competency levels of bim implementation and enable effective usage of Creating Info Modeling within the organization.

Building Information Modeling and Green Design

Building Information Modeling and Green Design | BIM@Deakin | Scoop.it

In a perfect world, energy simulations and design tools would be so well integrated that each time an architect moved a wall, added a window, or changed a lighting specification, the building’s predicted energy performance would be updated and displayed instantly. With that sort of real-time feedback, designers would quickly become skilled at optimizing the energy performance of their designs, and new buildings would be rapidly approaching carbon neutrality. Along the way, other aspects of a building, such as how well it uses daylight, how procuring its material will affect the planet, and even how much it will cost to build, could be similarly tracked and optimized. And all of this would be done while sharing a design seamlessly across disciplines...

Building information modeling | How hospitals can use BIM for maintenance | BIM@Deakin | Scoop.it

As BIM adoption continues to grow, the standards and technology that support BIM are becoming more integrated...new "Lifecycle BIM" applications, such as EcoDomus and YouBIM, are emerging to more fully integrate CMMS and CAFM solutions into a data-rich, model-based interface with BIM as the backbone of the information being carried through to hospital facility managers.

Jed Fisher's curator insight, August 25, 2013 3:27 PM

It's taken two years but now I am clearly seeing the trend I had hoped to see. BIM being used downstream, not just for A+E+C but now also for FM and related areas. There is tons of opportunity here, providing occupants and building owners with unprecidented information about their building, their environment. 

Two nice new companies are discussed in this article, the first time I had heard of either. If this is a space you are interested in it is also worth taking a look at bimplus.net.

How to use BIM 360 and Navisworks on your projects

How to use BIM 360 and Navisworks on your projects | BIM@Deakin | Scoop.it

Let's face it, today's building and infrastructure projects are complex. Time and cost overruns are often due to unresolved conflicts between disciplines and not having access up-to-date information. These complex projects require better coordination and collaboration across disciplines, companies, and locations – and project team members need accurate, up-to-date information. Essentially they need a single source of truth for BIM, and that is where BIM 360 comes in.

So how can BIM 360 help improve your coordination and collaboration process to prevent issues and drive higher quality and profitability? .....

Practical BIM: Minimum Modelling Requirements

Practical BIM: Minimum Modelling Requirements | BIM@Deakin | Scoop.it

The basis of BIM as a process is that information created by a participant for their purposes can be reused by others to assist them with their purposes.
For this to work 3 things have to happen:

The information has to be there at the time it is required (i.e. is actually generated).It needs to be in a form useful to others (i.e. they don't need to re-create it)It needs to be reliable (at least for the purposes others will use it for).

The last is covered by LOD, the middle one is covered by designating software, or use of standards (like IFC), and the first is covered by Minimum Modelling Requirements.

The first requirement is the most important - the others have no meaning if the information doesn't exist - yet it is the least discussed and tackled by industry bodies. There is endless discussion and work being done on openBIM, COBie and the like; LOD is becoming mature and is now appearing in agreements and contracts.

But where is the clear definition of Minimum Modelling Requirements?...

Revit Structure 2014 and Tekla Structures 19.1

Revit Structure 2014 and Tekla Structures 19.1 | BIM@Deakin | Scoop.it

Since the first batch of tests I ran back in May things have improved with the IFC import and export and this of course affects how we can share models between Tekla Structures and Revit. In previous versions Tekla have supplied a Revit add-in to import and export a Tekla model, this was using IFC. As you will read from my previous post this was not always that successful. All the problems now seem to be fixed with the new Revit 2014 IFC import and export. I have tested the IFC import and export and also the CIM steel import from Tekla Structures 19.1 to Revit Structure 2014. Unfortunately the SDNF import does not seem to work with either V2.0 or V3.0........
