Description


If you’re an AutoCAD user that’s curious about BIM, please join us for this free seminar where we’ll introduce you to:

  • the BIM process;
  • the advantages and new technologies that it procures; and
  • how smooth the transition can be between working in traditional CAD and the BIM.

AutoCAD is a very powerful program, but it’s falling short of coordinating with newer technologies—all while the adopters of BIM are constantly improving their deliverables. After all, the BIM is what streamlines a project’s workflow so users can:

  • avoid mistakes due to different modifications;
  • improve the coordination between the different disciplines; and
  • better analyze the building’s properties.

At the End of this Session, You Will Understand:

  • The BIM process, as well as current technologies that can be harnessed through a BIM workflow.
  • How to flawlessly communicate between AutoCAD and BIM software like ARCHICAD, importing and exporting with DWG, and building your project from AutoCAD drawings into a smart model.
  • The similarities between the AutoCAD and ARCHICAD BIM drafting tools, and how smooth the transition can be in your work methodology.
  • How to implement a BIM workflow, while keeping some of your production in AutoCAD.
  • The transition to BIM and its financial implications.

Topics Covered:

  • Introduction to BIM
  • Examples of projects done on BIM
  • ARCHICAD’s software interface
  • Basic BIM operations
  • Working within the BIM in 2D, the AutoCAD way
  • Importing AutoCAD files, inserting XREF files
  • Automatic elevations, sections, and plan layouts
  • Automatic dimensioning—interior and exterior
  • Change management—coordination and collaboration within your design
  • Productivity increases and cost of ownership
  • Advanced visualization techniques
  • And more!
