Resuming the lessons learnt post series, I want to move onto the topic of data in BIM models. More specifically, the data that we add to our BIM models in software like Revit, ArchiCAD, Tekla, etc. When I first started working with Revit workflows, I was very cautious as to not limit the potential of […]

Two weeks ago, I’ve run across an interesting LinkedIn post that linked to this article:  Lagstiftning kring BIM i Sverige – är det fortsatt relevant? (Eng: Legislation on BIM in Sweden – is it still relevant? by Nina Borgström. One of the highlights from that post is the question if BIM regulation/legislation is still relevant […]

The second post in the series. This time I want to touch on the geometry detail level of Revit projects or as commonly known as LOD or LOG. I will leave the data aspect or LOI for another post. I did mention briefly in the first post about one pilot project. A steel pedestrian self-anchored […]

In the previous post, where I shared my opinion on why it does not matter if you use Revit the right way, I had a paragraph on Model-In-Place families in Revit. I do not know about others, but I personally never liked seeing them in BIM models and try not to use them anymore. Though, […]

This is the first post of a planned series of short reads (compared to my previous posts). With all the lockdowns and overall uncertain times upon us, I found myself deeply thinking about my personal experiences with BIM implementations, workflows, and BIM in general. Some thoughts are just random interesting discussions with myself, others relate […]

I’ve been stuck writing this for quite a while now. The overwhelming nature of the topic, how much can be discussed about it has kept me from finishing it earlier. Luckily for me, a few wonderful articles I’ve read recently gave the needed motivation, not to mention making it easier for me to write this […]

This post is the second part to the previous post on evaluating the value of Dynamo scripts or computational BIM solutions in general. Even if you haven’t read that one, the present piece can be read as a standalone post since it is more technical and will show a few approaches to Dynamo script usage […]

This is a two-part post, that takes on the issue of measuring the value from implementing Dynamo + Revit based workflows for Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) companies. The first part discusses broadly how companies should group their Dynamo scripts in terms of measuring the value these scripts create and what specific metrics can be […]

As BIM has finally become arguably mainstream, the “I” part is playing an increasingly more important part in project workflows. Initially, BIM has been viewed more like a 3d modelling process of a structure with some additional capabilities over CAD workflows. But those times are long gone. It is now commonly accepted that a BIM […]

One of the points of BIM is to enable improved collaboration within the AEC sector. This collaboration is facilitated by numerous aspects, among which is the data and information exchange or in plain terms the sharing of BIM models with clients, contractors or subcontractors (or appointing and appointed parties for those keen on ISO 19650 […]
