BIM (Building Information Modeling) is not just about representing a building in 3D. BIM is widely used for all professionals in the building and architecture industry and is likely to open up a new generation of building documentation detaching away from the planar drawing board. It involves communicating and sharing information across the team from designers to builders to suppliers and finally ochestrating its entire sequence onto a building site. In addition, we will demonstrate how REVIT can be coordinated with other design applications, such as Rhino, 3Ds-MAX, and Sketchup.
Everything that goes into a BIM project can be done so in greater detail, accuracy and consistency than any other 2D drafting program. There will be lesser mistakes, building elements can be accountable and quantified and many problems can be highlighted much more effectively. BIM is not CAD. It’s not even 3D CAD. It’s something we’d dimly imagined as the next step, a way to understand a building before it is built, and more fundamentally than ever before.
This elective will spend the semester exploring various range of REVIT Techiniques and teach students the principal theory of BIM (Building Information Modeling), basic 2D & 3D tools, as well as critical program interface and settings in REVIT.
