SELECTING BIM TOOLS FOR ORGANIZATIONS AND PROJECTS (Part 1)
Now we would like to share with you about the BIM tools, or as a whole, this is part of the technology element in BIM, easier to understand, this is the software that we use in the Implement a BIM in an organization or project. You notice it is part of the technology element in BIM, as there are many other technologies that can be used such as:
Augmented Reality-AR technology;
Virtual Reality (VR) technology;
3D scanning technology (Laser Scan 3D);
+ more ….
As defined in the AGC-Associated General Contractors BIM, the BIM tools represent an application that produces a specific result: modeling, drawing, specifications, cost estimates, collision detection, energy analysis, scheduling and everything required during BIM deployment.
Reading the above definitions is also quite clear what BIM tools (BIM tools) will do then. Thus, the software we still use such as Revit, Archicad, Tekla, Navisworks, Vico Office, Cost X, Synchro … are the BIM tools because they are used to produce the results as in it. stated.
+ Revit, Tekla, Archicad is for modeling, drawing production, …
+ Vico Office, Synchro is to plan, …
+ Vico Office, Cost X is to peel volume and cost estimate, …
This also helps people get rid of BIM thinking right now is a software called BIM J. This is true, my side is also lucky to share about BIM in many places, the above thinking is. It is real and just learning software called BIM is possible. In addition, many people think that using some software such as Revit or Tekla into the design or construction work is BIM, then think is not wrong, but really is not fully aware If it was so easy, then companies would switch to BIM. In this article we just mentioned some of the above mentioned, do not go to analyze BIM what is true, because this a lot of predecessors have already mentioned, let you sum up a post about the problem This.
Back to the topic is the BIM tool (BIM tools), the obvious is that tools like Revit, Tekla, Civil 3D, … are best known for solving these tools are the tools used. The most popular and also the most adware companies. However, the world of BIM tool does not have just such a tool, it is very much always, the tools I mentioned above have the function is to create the model only. To know how much it is, you can look at some of the pictures below:
The image above lists the BIM tools according to the stages of the project, but not all BIM tools, which are just some of the common tools and they are grouped into functional groups. main. You notice there are a number of tools in the loop, these tools are tools being used in a company in the UK in his company. In summary, the above image has the following meanings:
+ BIM tools are broken down into layers.
In a company can use many tools of different firms.
+ One phase of the project can use many different BIM tools.
+ One tool can be used at different stages.
