In practice, implementing BIM means more integrated & collaborative workflows to maintain & improve our delivery of each project. Taking your design / construction practice forward towards "more BIM", be patient, continued learning will bring you insight to better plan your gradual transition. BIM is equally a new way of working and thinking. As 2020 starts, make BIM your own but also remember, BIM is a "team sport".

Here is your chance... What functionality have you always wanted in a label? Reply below

#InTheOven

The functionality in our keynote label is getting a major re-working to reincarnate itself as the #PowerLabel for ARCHICAD.

The goal is to CONTROL THE DATA AND OUTPUT OF A LABEL ON ANY ARCHICAD GEOMETRY.

Smart enough to know what it is associated with, the data sources would include any:

- ATTRIBUTE DATA;
- DIMENSIONAL DATA;
- IFC / PROPERTY DATA;
- ID;
- LAYER;
- CUSTOM PARAMETER.

What functionality would you like to see included to meet your office workflow needs?

fusionBIM | 3D Sun Study of Manor House, Buffelskloof, Karoo, South Africa

It only took us 5min. 🤩 Contractors are going on site soon and we did this quick 3D #SunStudy of this proposed function space in this project to answer a very valid technical question.

#QUESTION was: how will the panel thickness influence the penetration of light and the effect of light and shadows on the interior surface through the laser cut openings? Will we also need to increase the opening dimensions or change the patterns?
#ANSWER was: We could clearly see that a 30mm panel still gave us the desired light & shadow effect compared to a 5mm panel.

#LoveThis: It's that quick to get to real & well informed decisions using the best too for the job. And the job can continue without any delay.

7Sea Drilling Barge operations manual 27/10/2019

Space In Design & MultiCad Design Solutions (now fusionBIM) tasked by 7Sea Drilling Barge in 2011 to create an operations manual for Jack-up Barge to be dismantled and packed for transportation.

#ARCHICAD 17 was used to create 3D models of the components, parts, tools & equipment of the complete barge. We then packed it all in 3D Virtual Shipping Containers and automatically created lists of the content of each container.

The outcome delivered these benefits:
> Reducing assembling time
> Reduced idle time by ONE week = R100 000
> ONE container less to transport – saving approximately R10 000
(From Cape Town to Maputo in Mocambique)
> By packing the barge into 4 containers instead of 5, 7sea was eligible to tender
and potentially win their next project.

>> CLIENT FEEDBACK: MultiCad Design Solutions cc
Francois turns Lisa’s skew hand sketches into professional 3-D drawings which makes the practical work on site easier.
