You may have heard of many benfits of BIM (Building Information Modelling), e.g. How much does BIM Technicians being paid better than formal engineers, how much higher the rate to win a tender, or even how the government apply it to public rental housing and etc. Perhaps you found your CAD tool sufficient, but surprisingly, you have subtly moved into the world of BIM by yourself.
You Already Think in BIM When you’re designing a building, you don’t think in 2D lines. You think in real-world objects—You know how they fit together, what their relationships should be, what elements support other elements. This is what BIM does, it is object-based, In your model, walls act like walls, doors act like doors. They are connected t each other, not just collections of lines. This means that you can manipulate them in ways that relate to their real-world behavior, and that flow logically from your design workflow.
The coordination between architecture, engineering, construction are always essential. If you move a wall in a plan, you need to know what that does to your elevations. If you change the size of your floor beams, you need to know how that affects your sections. BIM helps you manage that, with live sections and elevations that instantly reflect changes in other views. Yes, you might still have to chase a change through a few different views, but you’ll immediately be able to see the changes—and that will save you time down the road.
Taking Care of the DetailsAccording to your changes made, you always have to housekeep your drawing set. BIM takes care of that, e.g. sheet number or drawing list updates, or even you have to change the scale of a plan, it can automatically adjust to the correct size required.
The course, BIM Design with Autodesk Revit, ran by Form.Welkin Creative Training, has been providing progressive training to enable student to use Autodesk Revit to Manage BIM projects. While BIM technology has been growing rapidly and developing into a standard in the Architecture/Engineering/Constructional industry, Form.Welkin Creative Training helps to enhance students’ design ability, coordination quality and productivity all these years. Students who has completed the course are entitled to receive a Autodesk official Certification to ensure the professionalism.
