No more waste of materials on site: Manufacturing Facility Modeling

Let's talk about estimating costs for the construction of a work. When purchasing the necessary materials, were your calculations accurate? How much extra quantity variance did they add to their estimate? Surely once they found themselves facing a buyback situation due to changes and rework or simply they bought more because “better over and not missing”.

BIM Coordination: The Key to Cost-effectiveness

Way behind are the days of visualizing buildings through sets of drawings. Digital transformation is here, and with it came many new tools and possibilities for BIM experts around the globe. Today, we can visualize a building through 3D modeling and geometry, and that’s not a minor thing. This process was designed to solve numerous construction problems like reviewing mistakes on budget, redundant construction, and the decrease of facility efficiency.

Visual programming and Dynamo: A Quick Guide

We are technology enthusiasts, and we state that software is at the core of how we make BIM accessible for all. But beyond our phrases, there’s a lot of information waiting to be interpreted and told.

It’s like a watch. What we see on our wrists is the result of a series of smaller processes that make the handles move and let us know what time it is. Are you going to tell me that what lies behind the numbers and handles isn’t interesting to you?

What’s behind many of the things we do is Dynamo. But before getting specific about it, we should see the bigger picture.

Revit, a tool that redefines workflows, mindsets, and professions

Science fiction author Jeff Duntemann once said: “A good tool improves the way you work. A great tool improves the way you think”. There’s no doubt that the AEC industry has been revolutionized at every step of the technological revolution. New tools have been developed by great minds and changed completely the way professionals deliver projects, design, and even had a huge impact on the industry’s workflows.

Do you want to know what is the most popular BIM software? Revit is the correct answer. Its impact in the BIM ecosystems mirrors the one caused by the passage from black and white to color on tv. Sketching and 2D work were replaced by Revit’s 3D components, which are stored in Revit families. This led to a change in the mindset of AEC professionals all over the world.
