In today’s BIM world, OpenBIM is a must in most projects. Delivering and receiving projects in OpenBIM ensures efficient collaboration between all stakeholders. BuildingSmart created IFC format as an open concept, so all stakeholders can use them without being limited to particular software.
IFC file format was used as a delivery file, but we intend to use it in our everyday workflow. So regardless of the BIM modelling tool, you can always collaborate, and the whole team works the same way. We will use IFC to check what we are sharing with the team.
Nowadays, the role of a BIM manager or a BIM coordinator is getting more specialised. Model checking and validating are becoming increasingly complex due to the variety of tools and specialised disciplines. In this article, we want to compare two of the most known model validation tools: Autodesk Navisworks and BIMcollab ZOOM. The goal is to compare features and workflows. Are you familiar with any of them both? Are you curious about the other one? Let’s get started!
Nowadays, collecting BIM information is vital for construction projects’ success. Team members in different job roles rely heavily on the analysis and use of the information from BIM models. But, as a large number of models is exchanged regularly between disciplines, the quality of other’s data and models can’t be guaranteed.
Working with different models from different disciplines can be challenging, especially when the other users have different BIM levels and skills and use different standards. As a BIM Manager you'd rather be doing something else than chasing people to add or modify parameters. Find out what problems Smart Properties can solve, so will be back to managing and coordinating other tasks.
It’s no secret that construction projects require constant coordination, from the design phase up until their delivery. The real secret though is how teams execute this coordination. This is often what sets apart the good from the best. Let’s explore together how a connected workflow will save you time and money in 7 essential points.
