BIM Modeling – 4 Tips for Getting Started
What is BIM?
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is a software tool used by the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry that allows users to create sophisticated, intelligent models. Because BIM operates on a digital database, a change made in one view is reflected throughout the entire drawing automatically. BIM enables up-to-date and reliable information of the project design scope, cost information, and schedules; it can help lower costs, and improve delivery times on projects. BIM covers geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, quantities and properties of building components (for example manufacturers' details).
