BIM IN A PROJECT MANAGEMENT: WITH REVIT 2016 | ECOTECT ANALYSIS | LUMION 5.0 SOFTWARE (BIM - Building Information Modeling) for BIM professionals – An exclusive e-book on BIM

Alberto Bella has published an exclusive e-book alias BIM IN A PROJECT MANAGEMENT: WITH REVIT 2016 | ECOTECT ANALYSIS | LUMION 5.0 SOFTWARE (BIM - Building Information Modeling) for BIM professionals”. A kindle version is available just for Rupees 65.

The book explains the theory to portray and determine the practices related to BIM (building information modeling) that could frame a new standard for dealing with the construction process efficiently. This step is already undertaken to a wide section of the more developed countries.

In order to resolve the issues presently occurring with Construction sectors, BIM stands as one of the "elements of innovation" the proper implementation of BIM is very much needed. BIM can act as the powerful functional tool with a new and superior logic process management system , projects and products, that can significantly make the best use of time and costs.

The book presents the topic with an explanation of historical data, the main definitions and practice of work. After making a thorough research on the power of BIM, reference is made to its global presence by determining how BIM is accepted by several countries in their legislation and / or national regulations. The true validation of interoperability and BIM modeling, study of the energy requirements of heating or cooling in theory to suit our object of study, up to its illustration in graphics rendering.

Auto - Project Base Point to Project Base Point in Revit is very useful to adjust the misalignment of models

While embedding revit links, there exist a new positioning option, Auto - Project Base Point to Project Base Point It is very useful for adjusting the disposition of models. This facilitates the users to connect revit model in accordance with the location of its Project Base Point (PBP) and organize it independently.

The users should give importance on the following while performing with project base points and survey points:



  • To keep the model accurate, ensure the model geometry is under 20 miles from the startup location of the project base point.

  • Prior to export a building site to a civil engineering application that allows ADSK files, like Civil 3D.

  • Ensure that an imported DWG site is properly placed in the project.

Compute energy & BOM values in Revit & ArchiCAD with BIMobject Mosquito Wall Systems Cloud App

BIMobject® introduced new BIMobject Mosquito Wall Systems Cloud App to automate & accelerate the formation of construction solutions for walls.

The BIMobject Mosquito Wall Systems applies all existing building materials distributed in the BIMobject Cloud to generate the blending of materials into a wall system. So a wall system configuration is formed through application of building materials from various brands, and integrating it with generic materials.

The new Mosquito Wall Systems can help to create a complete series of construction solutions toward building material manufacturers. The manufacturers will get the ability for automation & formation of complete solution catalogues to be instantly allocated to the whole BIMobject community comprising over 125,000 professional users.

With a collaborative 3D view and simplified product administration, organizing construction solutions into the cloud is performed rapidly. The Mosquito technology produces wall systems and the Revit and ArchiCAD users can use it directly. So the BIM objects can be downloaded easily and utilized in the complete project. Each wall system is assigned with extensive properties like fire resistance, mass, sound transmission class as well as R- and U-values. The BIMobject Mosquito Wall Systems will automate the process for producing the BIM object. With the External databases, the properties of these construction solutions can be preserved and these are imported for automatically generating numerous configurations on the BIMobject Cloud.

The wall system is a crucial part concerning a design intent model in the BIM process and its properties are very useful to work out energy and bill of material values in Revit and ArchiCAD.

Revit 2016 R2 is available to improve the scalability, performance & speed of Revit

Autodesk just declared new update to Revit 2016 alias R2. With this new release the modeling speed will be significantly improved. Another crucial feature is the application of occlusion culling, a method uncovered in the fundamental graphics system. It includes a quick sample rendering initially to check what geometry is “occluded” from the scene and then to apply the final render.

The new background processing feature is included in Revit 2016 R2. The users can enjoy color fill background processing. Room, space, HVAC zone, duct and pipe fills are now supported with various CPUs or CPU cores to accelerate the process. With R2, the performance, workflow and scalability of Revit become superior.

Revit 2016 R2 includes over 25 updates. Autodesk Revit 2016 R2 is available for both Maintenance Subscription and Desktop Subscription customers to more successfully and competently obtain design objective.

Revit 2016 R2 contains the following exclusive features :-

  • By applying the new Draw Visible Elements Only option, the users can Orbit, pan and zoom more rapidly. The navigation speed is improved in Revit as it only the visible elements of a view. This occlusion culling is useful for complicated files and views in which transformation of a vital amount of content is constrained.

  • The users can continue their work while updating of color schemes and the related colr schemes with the Color Fill Background Processing. Revit 2016 R2 updates room, space, HVAC zone, duct, and pipe color fills through various CPUs, which mitigates model interaction delays belonging to these computations.

  • Revit 2016 R2 contains new and superior tools to ontain and embed design objective in a model efficiently. Project-wide parameters are used to embed design intent in a model to drive dimension and element instance parameters throguh the Global Parameters feature. A global parameter can work out dimensions and determine formulas to drive dimensions and parameter values in other elements in the project.

  • Family Visibility Preview can facilitate to obtain a superior view of design objective by separating out geometries which are invisible. Work more quickly Preview geometries and make necessary modifications prior to load a Family into a project and thus performance is accelerated greatly.

Autodesk Revit 2016 R2 can be accessed by existing Subscription customers of Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate, Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Ultimate, Autodesk Revit Collaboration Suite, Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk Revit Structure, Autodesk Revit MEP, Autodesk Revit LT and Autodesk AutoCAD Revit LT Suite software.
