    CAD has helped grow the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry far beyond manually produced paper drawings, empowering us to produce more complex, more accurate designs. Today, the AEC industry continues to face new challenges, including financial constraints that increase pressure to deliver projects more quickly and accurately. As a result, AEC firms are evolving […]

    A few years ago, we started a series of blog posts highlighting the benefits of integrating the rebar detailing among the project stages that need to unfold in a BIM environment. We acknowledged since then that the reinforced concrete industry was lagging behind structural steel in terms of BIM adoption, and it is for this […]

    Structural loads are an important consideration in the design of buildings. Building codes require that structures be designed and built to safely resist all loads that they are likely to encounter during their service life. In Revit, depending on the load duration and type, various load natures can be created (dead, live, wind, etc.). Structural […]

    During a building project, designers and engineers must consider the impact of wind. Whether simply determining design loads or trying to optimize the aerodynamic effects of the building structure and surroundings, wind analysis can pose a challenge. Wind load on a structure depends on several factors including wind velocity, surrounding terrain, and the size, shape, […]
