Transcript of BIM Components

We construct in 3d, but for hundreds of years we have designed in 2d. Paper is still a good way to transfer design information, but BIM creates these 2d drawings as views of a 3d model. What is BIM? If our drawings are produced in 2d, why do we need 3d designs? BIM is about much more than the graphic representation of the design - 2d CAD is really just a drawing process - the only additional information it contains is what is added in the annotations. A BIM model is really a database - as well as the visual representation it can provide data on quantities (and hence cost), construction sequence, specifications... vector information locates this data within the model. Visualisations for client, planners, purchasers, funders... Linkage to models by the Structural and MEP consultants allow coordination and clash detection construction drawings How do we do this? We use Revit software from market leaders Autodesk (producers of AutoCAD) – Revit is intuitive and pleasant to use, and exports to Graphisoft, IFC and a range of common file formats. What does BIM let us do? Nothing should be stopping us – the UK government wants all larger projects designed in BIM. Many constructors and clients are demanding BIM for the improved coordination and accuracy of scheduling. We're designing and delivering projects in BIM. What's stopping us? Designers are hampered by lack of BIM content... potential efficiencies can't be achieved when you have to create components from scratch. But... We're keen to work with suppliers to help them develop downloadable models of components like this Zip Hydrotap... What are we doing about it? By setting parameters, a single BIM object can represent an entire product range. The component is even more useful as it also incorporates the under the counter water heater which varies in size depending on which model is selected. This should change with the development of the NBS National BIM library – it is up to suppliers to provide content. Designers will look for product ranges that can be imported into BIM models easily – these will appear in equipment schedules and can be built into specifications earlier in the design process. As architects we know what we want component models to do – it is important that the model contains sufficient information without being too detailed – it should contain alternative resolution views in both 2d and 3d.
