This article is the continuation of a conversation that I started with the blog post depicting the value of BIM for Concrete and continued with from 2D to 3D with rebar detailing. If you’ll remember, I’ve described what I see as four main benefits for a BIM-centric approach to concrete:
New Precast Content
New Precast families for beams, columns, slabs, and foundations are now available.
Revit users can choose between various types of I-shape, T-shape, trapezoidal and many other beam cross sections. Columns having different corbels configurations and top supporting conditions for beams have been created. TT slabs and isolated foundations,Tomasz Fudala
Structural engineers, detailers and fabricators struggle with siloed teams, disconnected workflows, and varying software platforms that do not integrate seamlessly. This requires manual processes to bridge gaps which can lead to expensive errors and fabrication waste.
To help address these challenges, we have added Advance Steel software to the AEC Collection.Philippe Bonneau
Understanding what has changed between two versions of a design is a challenge for structural engineers.
BIM 360 Team provides a tool which helps project managers, designers, and engineers better understand design changes across the different versions of a 3D model. Using this tool, users can compare two versions of a Revit file and get the differences being highlighted with color-coding.Philippe Bonneau
