Reality Check: BIM vs. VDC As we implement BIM, let's clear up some misconceptions about BIM and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) terminology. As discussed in an earlier blogpost, "The new Face of BIM", BIM isn't merely 3D design with Revit. It's really about assembling data and objects in a collaborative manner over a construction project's life cycle. The business case for BIM is becoming stronger every day. We now estimate, for example, that the cost of errors/failures in construction projects ranges from 5 to 15 % of a project’s total cost. This huge waste of resources can be avoided...

Autodesk LIVE, immersive experience for Revit users

Autodesk LIVE, immersive experience for Revit users

Yesterday Autodesk launched officially a new interactive visualization service which offers Revit users the ability to transform their 3d models into fully-interactive 3D models, this product called Live is not really new, it was known as Project Expo and was in the Autodesk Lab before the final release.

As described by Autodesk, LIVE converts a project visualization into an interactive model in the cloud, Architects, engineers and construction professionals may customize and more easily share the experience with clients to explore on their own, enhancing communication of a digital design before a project ever breaks ground.

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 4 - Did You Say "BIM Coordination"?

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 4 - Did You Say "BIM Coordination"?

I suggest that we do away with the term “BIM Coordination”. Not only does it focus attention on Building Information Modeling (BIM) exclusively, but the term also implies that only certain qualified individuals can perform this function.

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 3 - Roadmap to a BIM framework

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 3 - Roadmap to a BIM framework

There’s no question that BIM delivers new levels of performance for the AEC industry. Architects, engineers, and constructors can easily visualize what is to be built in a 3D simulated environment. As a result, they can quickly identify any potential design, construction, and operational issues, reducing waste and optimizing efficiency through all phases of a project life cycle.

Given the diversity of the tasks that a BIM Manager must accomplish on a day-to-day basis, however, it can be useful to see how their alignment with an organization’s overall BIM vision will deliver stronger outcomes.

5 Pillars of a Successful BIM Implementation | Part 2 - BIM Adoption, the Human Factor

As today’s construction and engineering enterprises increasingly depend on digital technologies, BIM adoption can mean radical change for their business.

BIM, as we know, makes it simple to coordinate 3D and non-graphical data throughout the life of an asset. As a result, this collaborative environment can provide higher engineering standards, avoid the need for rework, and cut costs across the life cycle of a project.
