CADsoft Consulting is launching an exclusive event on Progressive Building and Design Technology

SolutionsCADsoft Consulting Inc, a recognized leader in executing design and construction technologies, officially launched CADsoft University in Tempe, Arizona, a convention where architecture, engineering, and construction professionals will meet and exchange new practices for employing design solutions.

The CADsoft's award-winning technical team will conduct the event. The event will commence from January 13, 2016 in Phoenix and from February 18, 2016 in Albuquerque.

This exclusive event will focus on two sections which involve Infrastructure & Design and Building & Construction, with the elementary theme of "this is what the future will be, but you can do this now." The technical team will analyze the three stages of a civil engineering project which include planning and collection, design, and output—all through the Infrastructure & Design portion of the day through presentations on Autodesk products like Autodesk Infraworks 360, Autodesk ReCap, and Autodesk 3ds Max.

The Building & Construction portion will teach generative design, virtual reality for design review, handheld laser scanning for as-built design and building energy observance for facilities management.

CADsoft’s technical team also demonstrate mapping 3D models and snapping photos via drones, together with the "Living City Project," a concept that will facilitate specialists to familiar with AutoCAD software's sound capability to visualize realistic demonstrations of whole cities.

Autodesk gospeller Lynn Allen will conduct a lunch session to focus on the "Future of Making Things," an epoch of technological movements and ruptures in building design and construction that advance rapidly.

In order to get more information on this event go through the following link www.cadsoft-consult.com. AEC industry specialists who want to participate with the event can register here for Phoenix (cadsoft.wufoo.com/forms) and here for Albuquerque (cadsoft.wufoo.com/forms/cadsoft-university-registration-albuquerque).

How BIM is considered as an effective software for error-free construction design

BIM alias Building Information Modeling generates models which are packed with lots of information useful for all the phases of building information. BIM is based on the concept of lean design and it accelerates the construction design process by minimizing the wastages of time and resources.

BIM unfolds various channels for effective communication amid the board of all disciplines related to constructing a building. Besides, it integrates both the graphical and non-graphical data concerning a building into a single model. The project team members can easily detect the issues and challenges and resolve them prior to actual commencement of the building construction. The transparency in the communication system results in understanding the several design components in a better way.

BIM maintains effective collaboration among all the project stakeholders and thus generates multidisciplinary design.

BIM empowers the contractors, architects, interior designers, and engineers to coordinate their vision in real time for the successful completion of the project.

BIM efficiently reduces the gap linking the design and the actual construction. BIM records all the vital information and analyze them intelligently so that it reveals how the building would be used and how the sustainable structure would be created.

While transmitting the design intent to the project team members in the form of project handovers, 3D illustrations help in understanding the design and enforcing processes as a result. The project stakeholders who are unable to read the detailed and complicated 2D blue prints, will get the ability to understand the design throughout 3D visualization.

Besides, creating the design of the buildings, BIM can also be used for quantity take offs, cost estimations, construction activity scheduling as well as preparing sustainable design.

BIM with its broad approaches, facilitates architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, fabricators and developers to work in tandem and transform the design from conceptual to final stages according to plan.

Go through this exclusive live presentation by Casey Rutland, Associate Director at Arup Associates to learn how BIM impacts the designing process of built assets.
