March 11, 2016 marks the five-year anniversary of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, which caused catastrophic meltdowns at three reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant complex in Fukushima Prefecture.
As the implementation of BIM continues to gain ground in the AEC industry, so does the number of books on BIM that are published—in response to the increasing demand among AEC professionals and others involved in the design, construction, and operation of buildings for more information in the technology and how to use it. While many of these are “how-to” books on specific BIM applications such as Revit, ArchiCAD, etc., there are also general books that attempt to provide a broader and more expansive understanding of BIM, its underlying concepts, its potential benefits, its application to specific aspects of AEC/FM, its future potential, and so on. It is the latter kind of books that AECbytes occasionally reviews, starting with the reviewin 2008 of the first edition of BIM Handbook: A Guide to Building Information Modeling for Owners, Managers, Designers, Engineers and Contractors, which still continues to be the seminal book on BIM for the AEC industry. We revisited the second edition of this book in the 2012 article, A Quick Look at Four Books on BIM, along with a brief overview of three other books. Subsequently, a review of the book, BIM for Facility Managers, edited by Paul Teicholz under the aegis of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), was published last year in the Q3 2014 issue of AECbytes Magazine.
Point cloud modeling/Scan to BIM technology offers many advantages and makes it easier for engineers and facilities managers, especially during refurbishment and renovation phases of a complicated project. Scan-to-BIM service can be used to validate the key conditions and services of the built environment of a project and can be used as an integral part throughout the entire project life- cycle.
Imagine walking the your clients through an actual life –sized model of your on-going architectural venture? Or imagine yourself sitting virtually inside your model and evaluating the nuke nook and crannyorner of it., it’s This is definitely more fruitful than sitting at your table and zooming into a 15’ screen.
It looks like the depth-sensing time-of-flight camera technology that was developed and popularized for projects like the Xbox Kinect and the ZCam are already showing up in the next generation of smartphones.
Yesterday we announced the release of Autodesk® Advance Steel 2017. Built on the familiar AutoCAD platform, Advance Steel helps provide engineering and detailing professionals the tools needed to model the details necessary for their structures. The latest version of Advance Steel adds a host of new features and enhancements that help improve productivity and usability, and allow fabrication documents to be drafted and documented more easily to support BIM enabled workflows.
Contrary to what we would like to believe, the construction workflow is not as clear-cut and simple for the average individual to understand. The devil is in the details. What!!? Say it ain’t so! OK… let me step back a little. Yes, throughout its lifecycle a project will follow a clear progression from design to construction to occupancy. The key is using virtual design and construction technology (VDC) to help the overall process in minimizing the loss of information in the hand-offs between the phases and enhancing communication between the parties involved...
